Spring things from Quilting with Kimberly

The majority of our Easter and spring decorations are stored in our cabin and since heavy snows and a busy schedule have prevented us from traveling to Lake Arrowhead to retrieve them, I’ve done minimal decorating this year. However, I did run across a few fun, wooly table toppers I made many years ago and it made me happy to bring them out to enjoy after being tucked away in storage. 

I haven’t done any buttonhole hand-stitching on wool in, well, years. There just never seems to be enough time. Oh, how I’ve missed it. Revisiting these ...

Too Quiet? from From the Strawberry Patch...

Have you missed me? I know that I entitled my last post "Keeping It Quiet", but you might have noticed that I have been very quiet over the last few weeks-- too quiet! The truth is that we have been gone, cruising the Pacific and enjoying the sunshine of the Hawaiian islands. Our flight back to the east coast was anything but quiet; flying from Los Angeles to Atlanta on Saturday was one rowdy

What's Up 1-14-19 from Rose Prairie Quilts and Farm

First what's up for the year...

And whats up on the wall is the Snowman quilt I thought I lost.
For over 3 years I did not know where this quilt was and I looked everywhere. At least I thought so until one day I was out in the garage rummaging for something and at the bottom of a box with old kitchen stuff there it was.

Had it quilted a few months ago and had plans to get the binding on in time for Christmas but that never did happen.


Decided to go with a solid indigo, something ...

Vintage Dresden Plate & Quilty French Floors & Zucchini Update from caledonia quilter

Boy, I have a lot of catching-up to do, quilt-blog-wise.

This vintage Dresden Plate was quilted back in mid September.  I love vintage quilts - never met one I didn't fall head over heels for.

There were a couple of blocks made with new fabric, just to get a useable size of quilt.
Yes, those plates are a little wonky.  The centers aren't round.  The plates aren't centered.  But it is so pretty!  As requested by the owner, there is not too much quilting here.  Stitch-in-the-ditch around sashings, and inside & outside the plates.  Loopies inside the wedges, and ...

Apple Bread recipe from Stitchin' Therapy

Be forewarned, it takes a while to put together and an hour or so to bake (depending on the size pan you use).    The original recipe I found is from 1982 Southern Living cookbook.....Fresh Apple Loaf----we just call it Apple Bread!



4 cups peeled, grated apples
1/2 cup raisins---optional
1 cup sugar
1 cup of brown sugar
  •  Peel apples.......I like Red Rome apples.  Once peeled, I give them a dunk in a  lemon  and water bath----about 4 C water with 2-3 tablespoons of lemon  juice until ready to grate.  It keeps them from turning brown.  Drain before ...

Favorite Block, Sweet Friends, Garden/Zucchini Update & recipes from caledonia quilter

No, I have not finished the quilt I showed you last week.  I'm still plugging away at it.  If I could get DH to refresh his memory on how to use either the vacuum or the hoe I might make quicker progress.  However, if he DID get out the hoe, I'd be a little worried about his aim when he got near the zucchini plants.
I will tease you with what I think is my favorite block so far.  I love Dresden Plates.

As far as sweet friends go... Margaret occasionally sends me squishy parcels.  Those are the ...

Today's mom's 85th birthday. I'm so happy that I still have her with me!!
Mr.Cowboy and I cooked breakfast, took it to your house and ate with her. Breakfast is her favorite meal so I did bacon, scrambled eggs and French toast. We laughed, reminisced and looked at old photos. Now I'm back home and thinking about making her a nice dinner.
I'm sharing the following recipe and hope that you enjoy it as much as we do.

Mexican Lasagna

Adventures in lemonade from Quilting with Kimberly

Everyone knows the saying, “When life gives you lemons….”

…make lemonade.

Today, the little Meyer lemon tree in our front yard gave me a gift. Lemons. Eleven of them. And I shared some with our dear neighbors and new friends, CL and Judi. It was warm and sunny and it reminded me of going to downtown Canal Fulton, Ohio, where I grew up. Every year in July our little town would hold a summer carnival — Olde Canal Days — with rides, exhibits, and typical fair food. I would always enjoy a glass of freshly squeezed lemonade. Yes, today reminded me of ...

Magazine Monday – The Farmhouse Movement from Hooked on Quilting

At the end of March, Rick and I went to Gatlinburg for a long weekend. We used to do this for “spring break” when the kids were given a week off from their dance and gymnastics classes. They’d go visit their grandparents while Rick and I would spend three or four days alone in a chalet. This go around our trip had nothing to do with anyone’s schedule but was made more out of habit. It seems we’d gotten used to being in Gatlinburg in March and something didn’t seem quite right without our annual trip ...

T-Shirt Quilt & Winterruption recap from caledonia quilter

T-shirt quilts are a great way to showcase someone's hobby, or chronicle their life.  Make sure you fuse the shirts to a lightweight interfacing otherwise when you're quilting they are going to slither and slide all over the place.  This was beautifully pieced (and fused!

Over & Happy from Ravelly1

The play is over and I'm very happy to say that it was received well. All the participants were excited to perform and got rave reviews from the audience.
Afterward everyone moved to the cafeteria for dinner. The pulled pork was the highlight of the evening and I was asked repeatedly for the recipe.
I told all who were in earshot and will, again share with you all.
This recipe works with frozen or thawed pork butt. Mine were partially frozen. This is also for a large group but can easily be broken down to serve less. This would ...
