Slow and quick stitching

In desperate need for some quilty gratification I spent the day adding sashing to these I Spy blocks we made back in March. 
That makes for a decent sized quilt for favorite kids charity group, so not adding a border.  Went to Spotty and brought some nice green fabric as backing on sale.  Then at 5 am this morning when I woke up and decided I was going to sort backings to quilts and deliver them to my long armer....I changed my mind.  So stripy backing it is!
The applique all got finished for the four corner blocks this week.  I made a couple of design changes, to these blocks, minor but just made life easier.  
The most obvious one is that I used a star centre on two flowers in pink and a yellow circle on the other two.  Just liked it more!
No motivation to work on this quilt further at present.  I dread squaring up blocks and that is what has to happen next.  So off to distract myself with backings for now.
Happy quilting Sue


  1. "Warm Regards" is looking fantastic!

  2. I really like the applique quilt. Such exquisite fabrics and workmanship.

  3. I love those star flower centers, and the fact that you've used both stars and circles. Such a wonderful personalizing touch!

  4. They both look great, you always seem to get lots done.
