I have been working on these for my nephews for Christmas (ages 6, 4 & 1). 
They are so easy...
All you need is several bright and patterned fabric scraps.  I have done squares & rectangles.  Piece them together however you want.  Then, make a list of "I Spys" for them.  (ie: green frog, shovel, etc).  Instead of actually quilting them, I quilted around the edges and then used juvenile buttons in various spots.
I will try to get some pictures up when they are all completed...

Thank you for the inspiration! While the idea you have is great! and i'll be making one for the next frien who has a child, but I just added the " Spy vs Spy quilt" to my evergrowing list of quilts to make. Thank you!

That sounds like a cute idea! I need to make a new quilt for my youngest, he still carries around the one I made when he was born but it's cradle sized and barely coveres him now lol! I like the I spy idea!

Another cool twist on an I SPy is to put in two of everything, and make a matching game out of it.  i have a really cool one I did for my daughter called 2X2.  It's also an excellent way to use up leftover bits of novelty fabric.  I'll try to find a photo to post, if anyone is interested.  There's one on my Flicr account, I know...

Hey folks.  This sounds so cool that I really wanna make one.  Would anybody be up for a swatch exchange?  I am betting that it would be wayyyyy cooler to exchange with each other for patches of say... 9 by 9 maybe to accomodate enough patches and spare fabric for those of us whoe NEED room to... ummmm...stitch outside the norm. (HA!)

How about a date for an exchange maybe at the end of the school year so that we can be collecting and have time to organize and such. 

Maybe the sizes could be small enough to fit into a regular envelope instead.  I don't know.  Never done this kind of thing before. 

Whatddaaaa say?

What a neat idea!  We loved I Spy books and bags when my boys were younger.  Now I'm going to have to get together some material and try making one of these for a baby gift.
