Eye Spy – a quilt (well, almost!)

Once I finally decided on my sashing  …………………

Navy was too dark & heavy – hastily unpicked!

White was much more balanced!

………..I had a great time piecing all my little squares together.

The unfussy white sashing allows the pictures to stand out.

I spy something beginning with ……………. C!

…………..something beginning with ………………P!

It took a wee bit of canny calculating to work out how to fit borders made up of 3″ squares around a the 4″ squared centres, but I got there in the end (amazingly!).

So that’s the front done!  Yippee!

And now for the quilting (deep breath!). 

I’m still contemplating how to quilt this little piece of fun (it’s only 37″ x 37″), but I think there will be some free motioning in there somewhere!

P.s. If the thought of fussy cutting has you reaching for the brown paper bag (to breath into!) then this is either not for you, or it will completely cure you of FCP (Fussy Cutting Phobia)!  I’ll let you decide!
