Maple Pecan Granola recipe from The Crafty Quilter

One thing you can count on in my kitchen pantry is granola and today, I’m sharing my Maple Pecan Granola recipe with you. I’ve been eating store-bought granola for the past ten years, but a few months ago that all changed. My daughter brought home some granola she purchased at the farmer’s market and it was so good! I thought, how hard can it be to make my own? It turns out not hard at all!

My Maple Pecan Granola Recipe is super quick and easy to make.  It has just the right amount of sweetness and crunch and it's very customizable!

This granola is not too sweet and it has a tiny bit of salty to it. It’s also got just ...

Half-Square Triangle Quilt, Yes I Have Flour, Covid Update #2 from caledonia quilter

I really enjoyed working on this quilt.  There is so much depressing/horrifying/shocking (pick any one) news every day that this really cheered me up.

The whole thing is made from half-square triangles.  If you are involved in a guild swap of half-squares, this is a great use for them.

Mmm, love the back.

YES, I HAVE FLOUR

Like many people I'm not sleeping very well some nights.  Although I don't usually get UP at three in the morning, last Tuesday I was WIDE AWAKE.  So I figured, what the hell.  And since I have flour I ...

Entertainment During The Pandemic, UFO's, Quilt Ideas, Local Happenings from caledonia quilter

SCHEDULING UPDATE
At the moment I still have seven quilts here that I will be working on.  As they're ready I'll contact you and arrange a porch pickup.
I am not taking in any quilts until the provincial restriction on non-essential businesses has been lifted.  I realize you might find that to be an inconvenience, but as a rule I do what the "people in charge" tell me to do. Depending on how long this situation persists it might mean your booking in May gets delayed until Julember, or whenever.  With all the UFO's that are being ...

Off The Wall... from From the Strawberry Patch...

I need to re-title this, "Still On The Wall" as not as much progress happened on the Scrappy Sixteen as I had planned. I'm blaming my sinuses for this setback over the last few days. What began as a mild cold lodged itself firmly behind my eyes and resided there for altogether too long. Today is much, much better! Yay!! I wanted to bring attention this morning back to my guiding word this year,

Double Chocolate Smoothie Bowl aka Chocolate Craving Buster Bowl from Pieced Pastimes

I call this my 'Chocolate Craving Buster Bowl' for good reason. As many others, I have a thing for chocolate and I try to find a healthy balance to include this in my diet. This smoothie bowl more than satisfies any chocolate cravings and the best part is that once I've had a bowl, I don't want or need anything chocolate for quite some time afterwards. "Life is short. Eat dessert first."

Typhoo – One of Britain’s Finest from Hooked on Quilting

Although we’re southerners, born and raised, where Sunday dinner typically consists of fried chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans, soup beans, biscuits, cornbread, etc., we decided to go another route for our Sunday afternoon meal when our children were young. The reasons for doing this were two-fold. One, we wanted to give our children, who were involved in gymnastics and ballet, a better chance than we had of not growing up to be a fat kid, and two we wanted to teach them proper table manners, grace, and etiquette. So, on Sunday afternoon we sat down to tea with a ...

Fall Table Topper and Recipe from Pieced Brain


I finished this table topper about SEVEN years ago and totally forgot about it! It is now quilted (thanks to Melissa at Sew Shabby Quilting), bound, and living on my dining room table. I love its colors and, best of all, the applique'!

The flowers on the main fabric are colorful and fun so I copied them and turned them into the applique' motifs. Look closely: I machine applique' everything with the blanket stitch using matching thread colors (Aurifil 40 wt). I stitched the ric-rac down using a straight stitch, following its wavy shape so that ric-rac is going nowhere ...
