“I Spy” Crayon Quilt
Quilt Pattern/Name: I Spy Crayon Quilt (Jane’s Quilt)
Quilt Size: 37 inches by 40 inches
Quilt Maker: Ann Tarabini
Quilt Completion Date: completed 2017
Extra Information: I made this quilt as a gift for Baby Jane. Jane has older siblings and I thought an I Spy Quilt might be fun for the family. (I also enjoy “the hunt” for I Spy fabric!)
I just love this pattern from Emily Herrick -Color Me by Crazy Old Ladies. This version of her pattern has less crayons. My crayons are also shorter. I have seen this made up in all kinds of fabrics on different backgrounds and they all work well! (I like using newsprint fabric for the background.) It is a good pattern for the beginner as it has simple cutting and sewing directions.
I found a panel with a map of the United States that I used for the back of the quilt. I was worried that my straight line quilting pattern would interfere with the map but I think it looks OK. I printed a fabric label on my computer that lists many of the objects hidden in the fabrics.
