So for fun Fridays today, I wanted to show you a video of this very cool table setting that my mom and I are creating, but we aren't creating it until this afternoon!! So, I'm going to post it on Monday…

but I am going to give you a few sneaky peeks of what we are using to create a Valentine's Black and White Elegant Brunch Table!!

Remember this pic from Monday? Well, all week, I've been busy creating with them:

I can't remember where I saw this block!! (too much blog hopping, I guess!) But I loved it, so I checked my little cheater quilt book that explains how to size quarter-square triangles and half-square triangles and went to town!!

This block happened as an oops, but a good oops!! 🙂 (sewing fast = not really matching up seams…no quilt police comments, please! LOL!!)

P2095873

This was another oops block, but it's very cool, too, i think!! Serendipity is my friend this week!

and I put them together with some other blocks and got this…

I love large meandering (stippling) for the quilting!

Doesn't this block look great quilted?? This, my friends, is why i love quilting!! The finished product!! ♥

P2095875

So I also made these little dumpling bags for everyone's place setting. I personalized them (with a big shot alpha die! yay!!!) and added some red in there to match our plates…you are going to love seeing the whole table, I know you are!!

I got the FREE tutorial for this bag HERE at Keyka Lou's blog! Thanks, Keyka Lou!!

P2105882

Mom is going to fill with them with a sweet surprise!! Soooo fun!!!

P2105885

The last thing I sewed for the table was ruffles on the napkins! 

P2105886

Nothing better than a ruffler foot that makes work take a second!!

Be sure and check back here on Monday to see the whole table put together. It's going to be very pretty!! You just can't go wrong with black and white with a pop of red!! 

I also will be posting my Project Quilting challenge#3 quilt on Sunday…that will be exciting!! you will be very inspired by it, i'm sure!! ♥

happy crafting this weekend…and get inspired today!!
