I Spy quilt for a little boy

Before leaving on vacation, I was able to almost finish the I Spy quilt I had started with the denim strips. I talked about that fast and fun method HERE. So this is what it looks like now...

I Spy Quilt with denim...then I started machine quilting with red thread using the edges of the I Spy blocks as my guide. I'll stitch 1/4 inch from each edge of each block going in both directions, vertical and horizontal, for the quilting. I thought the red would look good with the denim fabric.

Happy Stitching!
