WIP Wednesday and other thoughts!

It's that day of the week again, and I'm not much further than last week. I'm waiting for fabric, don't you just hate that? I don't want to leave my current project and get all involved with something else and then have to put that down!

Here's a pic of my I Spy quilt so far, up on my design wall, aka my bedroom wall. It means I can look at it in my sleep and move things around!

As you see, I decided on a scrappy border and cut half square triangles to make a zigzag effect. I'm using the same 4" squares from the I Spy blocks, the ones with the small prints. I can't do much more until my solids arrive - bright red for sashing between the blocks and a bright turquoise thin first border. Can't wait to see how it looks put together. Everyone who's seen it (and they've all been adults) found things in the quilt to look at, so I'm hoping it will interest the little girls.

It really feels like fall outside. So many people say fall is their favourite season, not mine! Brr, and we've only just begun wrapping up and pulling out sweaters and coats. I admit, the leaves turning colour looks pretty. Our new trees are turning too, I hope this means they are alive so far.

Busy day tomorrow - quilt group in the morning, Stitch n Bitch at my house in the evening. In between there's an elliptical trainer being delivered. I have high hopes of exercising off my flab on this thing, but I ask you, is it likely??!!  Specially since my favourite activity is done sitting down! There's a thought, Quilting On The Go instead of QAYG.

Linking up to Lee at Freshly Pieced, have a look at all the great projects there.

Till next time,



  1. Ooh, red sashing will really make those I-Spy blocks pop! I love that you have the letters in the centers. :)

  2. I like the idea of red sashing too! Great quilt!

  3. I really like the scrappy border, it adds a lot to the whole concept.


Thanks for commenting. I love hearing from you. Really!
