I-Spy Quilt

This project has been haunting me forever. I collected fabric all last summer and had all the squares cut out. I thought it was going to be a baby quilt, but I just couldn't do it because my then 6 year old was in LOVE with it. He is the I-Spy boy at our house, that is all the books he wants and likes to play that game all the time. He's is such a funny boy. He notices everything. and if you loose something, you just have to ask if he has seen it, and he knows where it is almost every time. My 12 year old could be looking right at it and not even see it....... Anyway then I had the stress of figuring out how to make it into a twin size quilt. We have too many lap size blankets as it is. And as far as a bedspread goes he has always had the handmedowns when my older son gets tires of something.
Finally a few days before Christmas it hit me. That big tub of denim in the garage that really needs to go?..... I will just make use of it.
Well I sewed for two days straight (remember the small squares were ready) I found a brown flannel sheet at target and voila. He absolutely loves it and feels so loved. I am glad I did it for Christmas because it was his favorite gift and for two days he sat on his blanket with his New Christmas I-spy book and his New movie Night at the museum 2. I don't know if I remember seeing him so content for so long.
