Eye Spy Quilt

Updated: Nov 14, 2020

Back in 2016 when I had George, I couldn't imagine leaving him to go to work and so I started working hard on my own business to allow me to work around him. I am now writing this on his last day at nursery, he starts school next week and my fabric venture is three years old. How time flies! Time at nursery gave me much needed time to work in daylight hours and it has been amazing to see him grow and learn. I hadn't realised quite how much we both needed those hours until we went into lockdown. I have seen lots of beautiful thank you gifts and keepsakes on the walls of nursery over the last few years so, I wanted to make a leaving gift that is just as beautiful but could be used by the nursery and the new children that come through the doors. I have seen the idea of an eye spy quilt a few times and I thought it would be a great game to play with a group of 4 year olds. It is also a great reason to raid my scrap box.

I gifted the quilt a few weeks ago so that it could spend time in quarantine and George could still play it with his friends before he left. I was told they had great fun playing it and the nursery staff loved it too.

The finished size is approximately 75cm x 120cm. Use 1/4" seam allowance and press your seams open after each stage.
