Best Laid Plans Deferred

This video along with four others were made
to be posted on my Google+ page.
I'm not really up to taking care of two blogs and Google+.
I'm considering moving eventually to Google+
somehow hooking my blog up to Google+
Plans to clean up this blog design will have to wait for rainy or snowy weather this winter. I deleted some things, but it is hard to tell I changed anything.
I like all this clutter, but I suppose it does take a while to load the page?
This is the backs of two Card Trick 12" blocks with only finger pressing done as I hand sewed them. An experiment that proved that I should take the time to iron the seams as I sew because trying to press them all at the end was rather a messy business.
I like these fabric designs and colors, but I am trying to come up with some ideas on how to brighten, lighten up the overall quilt when I put it together.
Maybe, put in colorful sashing strips between the blocks along with colorful borders?
I'm trying to motivate myself to do some painting and I need to box up stuff to go to goodwill.
I would rather work on the quilt blocks and a tea cozy than stack firewood for winter.
The firewood is winning the battle in the cool morning hours.
