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.
