I Spy a Zany Zoo!

This just in...or technically, out, as in "out and available in your local quilt shop": 
These fun cartoon-like zoo animals are looking for a good home! Is it yours? 

There's so much to look at in these prints--each time you look, you'll likely see an animal you hadn't noticed before. And the variety of background colors means they'll make a cheery, brightly colored quilt. 

What kind of quilt, you ask? While the possibilities are endless, we'd suggest trying an I Spy design--perfect for little ones to spend hours hunting for their favorite zoo friends.

Want to join in the I Spy fun? Check out the links below:

  • Try this tutorial for an I Spy disappearing nine-patch.
  • Here's another easy tutorial--cut large squares for the blocks and fussy-cut smaller squares for the sashing squares. Lots of I Spy fun!
  • And of course, you can't forget the more traditional hexagon I Spy quilt.
