I spy a raccoon, a princess dress and a fox that wears hats
Sweet baby ducklings, a many eyed monster, blue striped cats
A bunch of stars, candy cane with a bow and chocolate hearts
A yellow kitchen chair, hot peppers, and many more fun parts.
"I Spy" was played in the car on every road trip we took when I was a child. My Dad was inevitably the winner. I was inspired by this simple game to create a bright take anywhere version. It's colourful, filled with interesting items for every age players and there is not a single game piece to loose!
The very young can start with colour and shape, learning with each play. When playtime is done, the game board converts to a warm and snuggly cover.
The game can be enjoyed for years, just imagine the varied games that can be invented for this versatile game/quilt.

I have a couple of hundred different novelty prints and constantly hunt for more so these quilts are ever changing. They come in several standard styles, differing trim colours and can be personalized with a label for an additional fee, They are 36 inches square. $225.00 CDN each. Available in the styles above. Solid. Vertical Stripe. Horizontal Stripe. 4 Patch. 9 patch. Vertical Brick. Horizontal Brick. Personalized label available for an additional fee.
These quilts are durable, washable in cold water and dried on gentle. Direct sunlight will fade colours, but with each washing it will become softer and just maybe a necessity every time you get in the car. I used 100% cotton fabric prints, poly cotton batting, and flannel backing for warmth and comfort. All quilts are washed with gentle detergent to remove any oil from my hands and give it that wrinkled look.
On Facebook Linda said: " My dayhome in Calgary was recently gifted a beautiful "I Spy" quilt, as Deb, owner of Deb's Quilted Creations, wanted it put through its paces! There is a common consensus amongst us care givers that it is very difficult to keep children 5 and under engaged for longer that 15 minute increments. This quilt has solved that issue!

All the styles of I Spy Quilts can be adjusted to suit your colour preference.
Solid colours best highlight the I spy items, but a small scale print would also work. Hearts or stars?
This is the first I Spy quilt I sold. Sure, it was to my sister, but I know that it has been well used and well loved by the little boy who received it as a gift.
I spy Bambi as sweet as can be,
