Hello, and welcome to another edition of “Ask Jo”. I get many comments and questions from all sorts of places, the comment section here, Youtube, email, and from our Facebook group. Sometimes I think others of you might want to know the answers as well so I answer them here on the blog. Today I’m answering a bunch of miscellaneous questions.
“When will your Halloween quilt be coming out in American Patchwork and Quilting?”
The quilt Beth is referring to is this…
I never did show you the finished quilt. It will be published in American Patchwork and Quilting in a fall 2021 issue. They never give a specific date as to the issue the quilt will be in. I am assuming it would be a September issue or an October issue. Typically they hit the newsstands 6-8 weeks before the actual month stamped on the magazine. I’m going to take a guess and say it will hit the newsstands in August.
I will have a big quilt reveal and notification here on the blog once the issue is released. So my best advice is to watch the blog and trust I’ll let you know. I am sure that many of you are collecting fabrics in anticipation of making this one!!
“Could you post the entire recipe including how to mix the frosting? I’m not a baker so I need all the info I can get! LOL, These do look yummy!”
Find the blog post Brenda was referring to HERE. There were no instructions for making the frosting. Often times church cookbooks and Amish cookbooks assure a level of baking skills. When I made them I threw all the frosting ingredients in the bowl minus the salt and mixed it up. The frosting turned out great.
Gannon sure loved them. The childcare kids just asked me to make them again so I’m calling them a winner!!
Some questions arose after I showed this picture of my pizza fresh from the oven. They were wondering what I have my pizza on. It’s a pizza peel. I heat a stone in the oven at least a half hour before I start making pizza. I put parchment paper down on the peel. I make my crust on the parchment paper, finish making the pizza and then slide the pizza parchment paper and all onto the hot stone in the oven.
When the pizza is done, I slide the peel under the parchment paper and scoop up the pizza. From there I put it on a pizza pan and put it on the table to eat. I love it! With little kids here there is never a hot pizza pan on the table. Find my Pizza Peel HERE.
As I said, Kalissa has been trying to perfect pizza. I let her pick out a stone and a peel for her upcoming birthday. She picked these…
This is the peel she picked. It has a nice handle that will swivel for easier storage. You can find it HERE.
She picked this pizza stone. You can find it HERE.
I am completely and totally jealous of this stone. I have a round one and it’s a challenge to make the pizza on parchment paper and make it the exact right size with no guide. I think I’ll be buying myself one of these for my birthday if one doesn’t “accidentally” land in my Amazon shopping cart before then.
I had no idea about making pizza on a stone and using a peel until I watched this video.
There were comments about this quilt after I did the post about the “airing of the quilts”. A comment was made that maybe I could draft this pattern. You’re right. I can look at that see how it is put together. It’s a beautiful quilt but drafting a pattern off of it isn’t right. It’s better to see if we can find the designer and get the pattern. Does anyone know who designed this??
Does anyone know the name of the pattern?
Hopefully, someone will leave some info in the comment section and then we can know and whoever wants the pattern can purchase it from the original designer.
I think that wraps up this version of “Ask Jo”. If you have other questions, please let me know.
