Play day

I've decided to give myself a play day today, and play with some more fun kid quilt prints. I've had this panel of puppies and kittens sitting in my stash for quite a long
 time. It was originally purchased so that I could use some of them in an I Spy quilt. That quilt has long since been done, but there are still a lot of these squares left. I spent some time thins afternoon playing in EQ7, to see of I could come up with something where I could fussy cut these fun pictures, and use them as the center of something.

This is what I came up with. The puppies and kitties will be the center of the stars. The blocks are going to be big, since the center squares will finish at 4.5 inches, so the star blocks will be 13.5 inches each. I'm going to start cutting today. I already have about half of the center squares fussy cut. Maybe I'll do a post later this evening with an update of how far I've gotten. This is going to be fun. I think EQ says that this quilt measures 67"x83". This should put a dent into the stash numbers, depending on how far I get.


  1. Cute cats and dogs. Your starts will be great. Have a good day. I am trying to stop by a few blogs today, I have not looked around for a while.

  2. I like your quilt design, it is a great way to showcase those cute prints.

  3. This quilt is great idea!
    Everyone needs play days!


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
