{Post 1,515} I Spy from Charm Pack

Went shopping with a sewing friend last week.  I picked up a charm pack of the fabrics used for the 4-patches above.  After I pieced the top, I decided to add a border of just "I Spy" prints.  That makes the top about 48-1/2" square.  A nice lap size for little people.  

One of my 4-patches is turned the wrong way.  I didn't notice it until I took a picture.  I think that will be my humility block!

This AM I pieced a backing for it.  Now to quilt, bind, label, wash, and dry!

{Post 1,514} Surprise Sewing Day

Above are my original blocks for the Maverick Stars.  I decided the outer frames were too big and cut those 4 down.

This AM I got out of bed and realized I was home alone.  Then my husband texted and asked if he had told me he was going to be out of state all day.  No.  So I sewed for the morning.  

My son got home from work about 11:30.  We did a few things together, then I sewed some more.

This is what I had finished when it was all said and done.  They are 9-1/2" square unfinished.  I am getting the hang of the wonkiness of it all.
