The lighting here in the hall is less than desirable but you can get where I'm going with this. Just threw them up there yesterday and will begin to move them around next. 80-4 1/2 inch bowties pulled from the stash. (cutting and piecing instructions over here at the ModaBakeShop) I'm loving the colors. Elizabeth had sent me a link to a beautiful vintage quilt for sale on etsy and it was just the inspiration I needed to get busy. Maybe the next time you see this I'll be finished? Or maybe not.

As for this...

Everything I hoped it would be. In several scrumptious bites.

Have a good weekend peoples. And come back and tell me all about it Monday! xo

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! LOVE the bowties. How cheeeeerful! I'm sorry, that clafouti is WAY to small. At least for birthday consumption. Or regular consumption.

Oh no I'm too late! I can't believe it! How could I MISS your birthday? Do you want me to come clean your house? Cook for you? Entertain you while you're sewing? I know, I know, you would NEVER let me do all that, right? So hows about Happy Birthday! Hope it was a happy one!

OHMYGOSH! Those Cherry Clafoutis from TJs are my favorite! THE best! There are days I want one so badly I almost don't want to wait the 30-beeping seconds for the microwave to heat it up!

I love your quilt ~ it is quite wonderful. I love bowtie blocks.

And HAPPY BIRTHDAY! May the next 29 years be as wonderful and happy as the first 29! :)

Happy birthday! The bowtie quilt top is terrific! I had to look close to realize they were simple little bowties. It looks so much more complicated, and the colors are so unexpected. Cute!
