I happened upon this blog over the holidays, bookmarked it and then forgot about it. When I came across it again this evening, a recipe for Olive Garden breadsticks flashed across the header photo. Becca just told me this evening how much she liked the breadsticks at Olive Garden. There were also quite a few other recipes that looked really delicious. Since I don't have Becca's email address, I thought I would just post the site.
I reached the half way point on Becca's Bday quilt early this afternoon. Since I don't want to show the whole front, I decided to show the back.
Before I started quilting, I decided that I did not want to sit and plan out the triangles I was going to quilt in the sashings. I decided I would just quilt them as I got to them in whatever fashion worked for that area. My goal was to start and stop as few times as possible.
I usually like to try something new each time I free motion quilt. Usually when I stitch in the ditch to stabilize the quilt, I use the walking foot. This time, I am not using the walking foot, but doing it free motion. This is also the first time I have made the swirls.
Larry has an aunt that lives just across the border into Oklahoma. She held a shrimp boil for her husband's birthday. Larry and I picked up Craig and Becca and went to party for a few hours. The food was great and visiting with the family was nice. Kelsey had to work so she was not able to come with us. We sure did miss her. Of course, her step-grandfather asked about her.
Happy snipping, stitching, and quilting!
