I Spy quilts

I have been playing catch up the last few weeks during the holidays.  Our house is very busy from Thanksgiving to New Year's like most people's but we also have a lot of birthdays thrown in- mine, 2 granddaughters, two sons, 2 son-in-laws, 3 grandsons ending with my husband's yesterday.  As you can imagine, not a very good time to start a new project so I worked on finishing some.
Here are pictures of four I Spy quilts I finished-   

Macy's I Spy quilt

My granddaughter Macy turned four the day after my birthday and her sister Lainey turned three the day before Thanksgiving. I gave them these I Spy quilts. All of the fabric squares are the same in each quilt and match their brother Mack's quilt that I had made in September for his fifth birthday.  I used the same squares so they could play a matching game with them.  I chose backings that reflect what they like right now.  Macy got My Little Pony and Lainey got Hello Kitty for their backings.

Quinton and Cooper are brothers and are my husband's grandsons.  Quinn's birthday was the day before Thanksgiving also. They have not seen their quilts yet.  I need to finish their mom's quilt before I ship them off to Pennsylvania.

Quinn likes super heroes so he got a Batman backing.

Cooper's I Spy quilt

 Cooper has a dragon theme bedroom and shares a room with his brother Felix who already has his I Spy quilt.  I used the same starry sky fabric for their backings.

I have two more I Spy quilts to go.  One for Max and one for Xavier.  They are brothers so I hope to have them done by Max's birthday in February.
