I'm so excited about this book, there are 35+ projects in the book for all those fun celebrations and I have a few projects of my own in there; a couple quilts, some place-mats, and a fun banner. My projects celebrate Reunions, Baby Showers and Easter!
Well, my friend Genny pieced a quilt from our pattern!
I LOVE Genny's version, for a few reasons, I love that she made the background (white fabric) scrappy. There's just something darling about that! I also love the red prints that she used. My Wrapped in Red quilt is all made from Christmas prints, love it for Christmas time but with the reds that she used this darling quilt can stay out all year long! LOVE it! :)
I machine quilted it for her. I did quilt it similar to mine, but mine has snowflakes and a few things that make it really wintery, so with hers I kept it more fresh, and I love how the quilting turned out.
Here is a close up shot of the back, I just love how the machine quilting stands out on the solid red.
One of my favorite things about Saturdays, besides sleeping in, is spending time with my family and eating yummy breakfasts together. My husband and I take turns making breakfast, he likes to make french toast, I like to make whole wheat pancakes and every once in a while I like to make Quick Crustless Quiche.
This morning I decided to get up before my husband and surprise him with breakfast, but somehow I went a little crazy and along with the Quiche I made Chocolate Chip cookies, Muddy Buddies and Home-made bread. :)
Quick Crustless Quiche
1/2 Cup Bisquick
1 1/2 Cups milk
Dash of Ppepper
1 Cube Butter
1/2 tsp Salt
Chopped Bacon or Ham
Blend in blender until smooth. Pour into greased 10" pie plate. Stir together 1 Cup Grated Cheese and Chopped Bacon or Ham. Spread on top. Bake at 350* for 30-40 minutes. Serve warm.

Yummo Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 Cup butter or margarine, softened
3/4 Cup white sugar
1 Cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 Cups flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 pkg chocolate chips
Mix together butter, sugars, eggs and vanilla. Add in flour, salt and baking soda. Then mix in chocolate chips.
Drop onto greased cookie sheet by heaping tablespoon. Bake at 350* for 8 minutes or until lightly browned. The original recipe says it should make about 3 dozen cookies..... maybe I just eat too much of the cookie dough or something because I never get more than 2 dozen! :)
