What are you most proud of? This is my first quilt and I quilted it myself with my machine! Thanks to the Craftsy class, I knew exactly what to do and everything was pretty easy. It's mostly straight line, stitch in the ditch-quilting, but that worked perfect for this kind of blanket.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? The tricky, but fun part is selecting the right fabrics and colors. I also used some print panel fabrics (e.g. alphabet panel) so I didn't have to buy 99 different fabrics :-)

This is such a fun, cute quilt, I would love to do one of these for my little grand-daughter when she's up a bit.. Great quilting too!

This is so precious. I have some I spy fabrics cut up. I have just been afraid to quilt. So far I haven't done it. I think the way you did your coloring is fantastic. That is my biggest fear - color. taking class and hope to get over it.

I'm hoping to make iSpy quilts for Christmas presents. Yours is beautiful! It looks like you made a narrow frame around the picture block and then the color frame around that. Did you use black and white polka dot fabric? I love that effect! Again, great work! Thanks for inspiring me!

Thank you! The frame on some of the blocks is actually from the fabric itself as I "cheated" and used quilt panels for some blocks :-) For the color frame, I actually used the "disappearing nine patch" pattern, that made it quite easy.

I love this pattern and have started it. How is it assembled? I'm really struggling to figure this out today. who can help?

I used this technique: http://obsessivelystitching.blogspot.de/2010/05/disappearing-nine.html to make individual squares, then sewed them together going from dark green to light green. The light green blocks need extra fabric and don't follow the disappearing nine patch, in fact each light green block had a full light green border and I sewed them together with overlapping corners (I guess I "cheated"). I hope this helps.

Well, I had to rip out about 40% of the quilt squares. It's done and I love it. I learn with every project and have made notes for the next time I try this. thanks for the reply
