The I Spy Quilt is finished and made it to the beach!
I am so happy that I was able to finish it before our trip. The kiddos will have a blast with this quilt. There are two triangles of each fabric so it is also great for playing a matching game.
The border is Remix Zig Zags by Ann Kelle for Robert Kaufman and the binding is Dumb Dot in Peppermint by Michael Miller. The finished size is 65" by 65". My four year old son approved of the size. He laid down under the blanket to make sure that I had made it the right size. Toddler approved!

I love how the back turned out! It is so bright and colorful. The stripe is a fun fabric I picked up at Ikea.
As for the stitching, I quilted a seam 1/4" on each side of the diagonal seams. Then I stitched a seam through the center of each triangle. This created a nice grid on the back.
Before I started this quilt I started out with 5" squares from two "I Spy" charm swaps. I saved the larger patterns for the back. I thought they wouldn't work very well if they were cut into two triangles, but they are perfect for adding color to the back.
