It Takes Two


I've been bitten by the English Paper Piecing craze after seeing Joy's blocks for 'It Takes Two' quilt. 
Today in-between customers, I prepared the 384 petals for the circles and the 228 pieces for the pieced borders. Instead of a light cream I have decided to go for a lovely blush background...coordinates beautifully with my collection of Antique Rose fabrics.

I don't expect to get my quilt finished any time soon but it will be a nice change from stitcheries while relaxing in front of the telly.
Pssssst! Don't tell the boss but I really should have been quilting my 'Garden Twist' Quilt instead of playing with papers.

Just remember, it's addictive. "Insanity" will be next. The best thing is that you're in good company. Looking forward to seeing your quilt coming together. Love the garden trellis. It's on my to do list - as long as it is. Just found out I have a "gift" of 4 days to spend sewing! Yeh! May even get time for a visit to Homespun and Beautiful.
