Slow Going

This WIP is taking so much longer than I anticipated.  I haven’t quilted anything in alsmost two weeks and I can’t even account for why.  However, the squares are all done and I’m finishing up a pretty involved backing.  In the end, it’s going to be two quilts in one.  Finished sqares ready to be sewn together:

And the back so far:

I love these fabrics!  Also, I’m cutting up repro fabrics for this quilt I saw on Nettie’s blog.  I feel a little intimidated by it but I’m diving in as soon as I put my current quilt in the washing machine. 

Appropos of nothing quilty or crafty, I just had to show you pictures from today’s valentine’s tea for my older daughter and her friends.  We baked and baked and baked some more.

As I write, they’re spinning around trying to cope with all the sugar.   They were pretending to be fancy with English accents.  “La-Di-Da”  There has been great, good silliness around here today.

    Love those fabrics together. The red accent is really effective. And the blocks look great!

    Looks like it was a scrumptious tea as well!

    I love the red fabric with the blue flowers fabric. It brings out the red center so well.

    the quilt of course is lovely :)

    The tea! Oh my!! I love having “proper teas” complete with posh English accents and extended pinkies… strictly BYOT though (bring your own tiara) :)

    yayyy for 2 quilts in one!!!
    that’s always fun!!!

    i love the double hourglass quilt.
    i’m thinking that repro fabrics would be too cute for words.
    i might actually have to make a mini one!!!

    were you the mad hatter???
    kidding. :D
