Crud - in an effort to delete spam comments from a middle East country, I hit a wrong button and deleted all the comments on that page - probably back 3 months.  I appreciate all the real comments so please don't think this was a planned error.  8-((  As far as I know, there was no "undo". 

I checked the origin of the spam, and tried to translate it only to read something about air conditioning repairs.  Who knew?

"I Spy" Quilt for kids, Thanks Joan!

Joan, I'm using your novelty fabrics!  So cute

I quilted this in big swoopy swirls - nothing fussy.  I put 2 straight lines of quilting in the border.   

(Notice, our lawn is still GREEN!)

This backing is some of the fabric given to me, hoping I'd use it in a kid's donation quilt.

Stringy, Pinky Quilt, QAYG

QAYG technique, not bound yet.  About 48" x 64".  The strips are various sizes, deliberately unplanned in order.

 Back pieces are scrappy as well.  I filled in with 5 blue squares. 
 Close up of fabrics. 
I used sashing strips of 1 7/8 in, folded, for the front, and 7/8 in. for the back.  My white back stitches all fall on the outside of the white strips, but blend in with the busy back fabrics.  These measurements fit well with my quarter inch foot.  Most of leftover batting was used up as well as a lot of pink scraps.  However, there is still an enormous box of pinks left for the next project.  This was started about 10 days ago.
