The blocks are done!

Today, I got up and got to work on finishing the blocks for the Lover's Lane quilt. They are done!! I got them done just in time to get ready to go to my granma's for dinner. My granma and aunt and cousin wanted to see the quilt that I finished on Lenny and Squiggy and so we grilled out and then watched College Road Trip. I also took my blocks over and laid them out since granma has such a huge, uninterrupted floor space.

Here are a couple of pictures of the lay out.



I got in almost 7 hours before I left the house and then 2.5 hours at granma's working on the binding for the stash pot pie quilt. They all thought that the quilting looked great and I said that I needed a name for the quilt for when I make the label. Aunt Carol suggested Hip to Be Square and it sounded pretty good, so that is it's name now! After I got home, I only had a few more inches to finish the binding on so I stayed up and got it done even though I was so sleepy. That gave me another hour. Looks like I am still in the lead!

I am just loving this pattern, but a google search did not turn it up. Is it in a book? secret source? Inquiring minds want to know - as nimble fingers want to make.

That is a Beautiful Quilt. I love the colors.

You're sending this to me when it's done right?
