Square Rainbows


Look what I've been working on today...

It looks a bit like No.1's custard tart she ate for lunch.

It's amazing how a day can be swallowed up when you get busy on a project. As usual there is nothing planned for dinner. Do you think fish and chips twice in one week is OK? Yeah me too!

I. LOVE. those squares!
The custard looks amazing as well. Home made? :)

Hmm. Got to find a way to learn to make squares. Any recommendations on resources of where I could learn to patchwork? Tutorials from magazines?

The rainbow strip quilt is looking gorgeous.
Maybe fish and chips all week and you could get it finished?

So pretty, both of them! We moved into a house near to a fish and chip shop when they boys were toddlers - we ate so mank packets of fish and chips when we were moving and had no kitchen that in the end we went off them for a good, long while - 6 months or a year I think. After that we
recovered...

Phew!

Love the way you've used the same colours for each square, will have to give that a go.
That custard tart looks rather delicious too.

Take care

CraftyHelen said...

I have to agree with the cookie cutter - how do you manage to do so much in such a short space of time?

Serenata said...

Oh I like, I like very much Sarah. They are looking wonderful! Mine are still non-existent!

Joan said...

Both the tart and the squares look yummy! I need to move to New Zealand. I'm convinced that there are more hours in a day there.

Your square rainbows are looking fabulous! I say fish and chips for sure. Craft usually comes before food in our house too.

At least they get fish with their chips! On swimming night this week I ended up with chips only - oh so healthy! I love your patchwork - it is absolutely stunning - you are so clever.
