Little I-Spy quilt underway

As you can see in the photo, I'm starting to sew the I-Spy quilt together.  It's a little tricky arranging the blocks.  I decided to join it in strips, and to pin a paper with the row number on each row.  First of all, I want to make the assorted colors so that they don't butt up against the same color.  And I'm trying to keep the prints with a definite up or down side pointing right way up.  And I want to have the seams turned each way, short pieces to long pieces.  A little patience is required.  Meanwhile, I'm trying to decide on my next project.
And it got really hot here, and I have the repair man coming to do something to my air conditioner today.  And I'm still afraid to purchase eggs.

I've used little slips of papers to keep my rows straight so many times I now keep the papers clipped and in a drawer so I don't have to make another new batch! There are times when it pays off to take it slowly and carefully :- )
