Today I'd like to share with you my "I Spy" quilt number 2.  The first one I made was given to a charity before I started taking photos of quilts years ago.

This quilt is for a toddler son of a friend.  The fabric was from Missouri Star Quilt Co and was called "I Spy Charades" from Kanvus Studios.  Here's the best part-I ordered the 10 inch Square packs 2 different times cause I liked them. (Never realized I had the first pack.) The pattern/tutorial is also from MSQC called Double Slice Layer Cake.  Super easy and quick.  I made the top in one afternoon at a WIP day retreat then it  sat in a cupboard for over a year! I just love this fabric.And so do little boys. I paired the fabric with some polka dots to let the subjects pop.

The quilt is 53 x 45 which is perfect for a little boy. The backing as you can see is red/white dots. I took this photo before I attached a tiny black/white binding. (see below for binding)

Here are some close ups of the blocks in the quilt.

Frogs, race cars, Mexican hats, numbers, popcorn, soccer balls, and my personal favorite-dancing monkeys to name just a few.

check out the binding:

I'm going to get more of this Moda polka dot! Love it as binding.

Hope you enjoyed this.
Have a great day.


  1. I love "I Spy" quilts! Your black & white binding is perfect.

  2. Lots of bright colors, lots to explore. I am sure this quilt will make the toddler happy and also provide many hours of playtime.

  3. I came for your I Like post and kept on scrolling down because I saw this quilt! It's so bright and fun! Then I was chuckling because I saw that it is a Double Slice quilt, and I was just watching that video the other day. I have a layer cake in a drawer that I've been wanting to use up. Glad to know it's a quick pattern!
