My Wonky Square Eye Spy quilt .....

This is the quilt I have made from blocks Wonky Square Eye Spy blocks collected in 2011 and 2012.  As you can see I added some rainbow charms to the sides to widen the top.


People who contributed to this quilt by swapping blocks with me are.....

Beatrice, Raelene, Terry
Maria, Bobbi, Maria
Marie, Crafty, Teresa
Anorina, Sue, Sheila
Michell, Jolanda, Sylvia

THANK YOU to all of you.... a really fun quilt ...

There are a couple more blocks that weren't included in this quilt and I plan to make cushions with them.....

I quilted it with a FMQ swirl all over ...


 ... can see them easier and get an idea of size of the swirls from this picture on the back...


.. what do you think of this fun backing... an almost new doona (duvet) cover I found in the op shop, which I also used in the binding


Thanks Sue for hosting this fun swap
(now I need to get my Churn Dashes together!!!)

Righto, Gotto Go..... there is fun to be had......

I love the backing, it just goes to show you dont need to spend big dollars on quilt backing, how clever of you to think of this.
