A note on yesterday’s post – I have not used the wash away applique sheets long enough to have a finished quilt so I have not experienced a washed quilt with it and also after glue basting the whole block in yesterdays post I realized this will be a stiff block to work with – it will not be real flexible. In the future I think I will just glue baste the center first and finish that and then go around the sides a little at a time so it will be easier to work with. I will put the pattern in my travel box with the prepped pieces in an envelope and glue as I need to.
I got 20 more square in a squares done for the Winter Wonderland quilt and that brings the total up to 240 done. Getting there! 66 left to do if I figured my numbers right.
I worked on Star Garden Thursday night after Melanie went home and it is getting so close to done.
This is the area I was working on last night after I wrote my post that I scheduled for this morning. Did I finish it? I don’t know LOL
The Postage Stamp quilt had one more block added to it last night. There are 350 little squares just in this much of the quilt – what will it use queen size? A lot!!
I made a blueberry crisp yesterday – this is basically the same recipe I used several weeks back with rhubarb – the crust is the same as that recipe except I cut it in half to make a small pan 9×9. Instead of the rhubarb mixture I used one can of blueberries that I had canned and drained and rinsed them. On the stove I added a tablespoon of lemon juice and mixed 1/2 cup sugar with two tablespoons of cornstarch, I mixed it together, stirring until boiled and then poured it over the crust and topped with the rest of the crumbs. I baked at 350 for 35 minutes.
