Garden Rows Throw Quilt


Do you remember a while ago when I machine quilted a few Garden Rows quilts for the Miller family? Well they are still finishing them and they are darling! 
This one I machine quilted and all over pattern. I really think it turned out nicely.

Visit the Seasons of Home blog you can read all about the Miller family sewing retreat.

Have a great weekend friends!

Wrapped In Red


Do you remember back in the fall when I shared my Wrapped in Red quilt?
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.
Quilt pattern is Wrapped in Red by Natalia Bonner and Kathleen Whiting, it's available in American Patchwork and Quilting December 2011 issue. Available for purchase at Fat Quarter Shop.

I hope you're all having a great day, or week, time just seems to be flying by these days!

Quick Crustless Quiche and YUMMO Chocolate Chip Cookie recipes!


(photo from my instagram)
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
Grated Cheese
1 Cube Butter
3 Eggs
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
2 eggs
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! :)

Free-motion Quilting


Colleen pieced this darling modern quilt. She send it to me and told me I could machine quilt whatever I wanted. YAY!
The quilt does already have a lot going on with all of the darling fabrics so I wanted my machine quilting to add to it and not take-away.
So I came up with a couple ideas and then had at it.
The thread color that I chose was pretty neutral so it blended nicely and added some fun texture.


I alternated designs but basically stuck with three different designs.


Every once in a while I got a little crazy and quilted a block differently, I think it keeps it fun!

All of the patterns that I used while machine quilting this quilt are taught in my new book, you can pre-order my book today!

Have a great day!
