Monica's I Spy Quilt

I finally finished Monica's I Spy quilt for her baby! This quilt is done with 4" squares arranged from the lightest to the darkest. Since Monica's husband is a volunteer firefighter, I put in as many firefighter themed fabrics as I could find in my stash. I found some awesome wide ric rac trim and cut it in half and sewed it between the binding to frame it. Here is the finished quilt:

Fabricland had some cool animal themed vinyl templates which I used to quilt motifs in the squares with small loops between the blocks to tie them together. The cat was one of the motifs:

I have just visited your blog for the first time and didn't stop until I'd read all your old posts! What beautiful quilts you make - and clearly well-loved by family and friends. I don't often comment on blogs but I just thought your site "clicked" with my quilting style and I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your sharing - I'm a fan of Bonnie's scrap quilts too!
