Blast from the Past: Quilts of May 2010

I’m doing a little series of posts that feature old blog posts.  I have been going back and looking at them.  It’s been fun.  I started blogging in June of 2009…WOW.  Over Ten years.  I’m so glad I’ve kept the blog as a diary of sorts…today I’m telling you about the quilts and other quilt related things I discovered in May of 2010.

I was busy working on Carrie Nelson’s (Miss Rosie Quilt Company’s) X-rated Schnibble.  At the time I was making all of these I often added borders on them to bring them up to baby quilt size.  I did that with this one.  You can read more about it HERE.

Blast from the Past: Recipes of May 2010

I’m doing a little series of posts that feature old blog posts.  I have been going back and looking at them.  It’s been fun.  I started blogging in June of 2009…WOW.  Over Ten years.  I’m so glad I’ve kept the blog as a diary of sorts…today I’m telling you about the recipes I shared in May of 2010.

 

I was getting LOTS of eggs from my chickens and making lots of goodies that used eggs.  This was the latest installment of recipes that use eggs.

ImpossiblePie

This is called Impossible Pie.  It’s one of those recipes that you have to try just because, quite frankly, it sounds impossible.

Mix together:
4 eggs
2 c milk
1 c sugar
1/2 c flour
1/2 c melted butter
2 t vanilla
1 c coconut

It will be in a liquid form.  Pour into a 10″ pie pan.  I don’t have a 10″ pan so I put mine in a round casserole.  If you use a 9″ pan, it will run over.  (trust me on the this tip)   Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.   The pie “makes it’s own crust” and tastes a bit like a coconut custard.

It’s not a beautiful looking dish but could be spruced up with a bit of whipped topping and strawberries if you like.

Kramer proclaimed to not be a fan of coconut yet he really liked this and I made it quite often.

I had to laugh looking back on the old posts as the chickens had gotten into trouble.  I wrote… Continue reading

Blast from the Past: Quilts of March 2010

I’m doing a little series of posts that feature old blog posts.  I have been going back and looking at them.  It’s been fun.  I started blogging in June of 2009…WOW.  Over Ten years.  I’m so glad I’ve kept the blog as a diary of sorts…today I’m telling you about the quilts and other quilt related things I discovered in March of 2010.

This was a Schnibble I finished.  I ended up putting borders on it to make it bigger.  You can read about it HERE.

The pattern name is Roundabout and I did it Moda’s fabric line Oz.  I loved that fabric line.

Kelli used the same fabric to make this quilt…

Blast from the Past: 2010 Crafting and Sewing

I’m doing a little series of posts that feature old blog posts.  I have been going back and looking at them.  It’s been fun.  I started blogging in June of 2009…WOW.  Ten years.  I’m so glad I’ve kept the blog as a diary of sorts…today I’m telling you about the quilts and crafts I did on February of 2010.

Back then I was very into Miss Rosie Schnibble patterns.  I was doing one a month.  This was my Sunday Best Schnibble.  Looks like I did it in 30’s prints.  I completely forgot I ever made it!!  You can read more about it HERE.

I’m guessing I gifted this as a baby quilt but to who I have no idea.  I often added a border to make them bigger so they were baby quilt size.

The Country Threads pattern, Four Seasons, features a mini quilt for each season, and I have made them all….fun, quick projects.  Mine have hung outside for three years and it was time for new ones.

SpringWallHangingThe quilts are 14 x 18 and are perfect to fit on the banner stand I have.  Read more about it HERE.  You’d have to contact Mary to see if that pattern is still available.  I know Mary and Connie have been selling a few patterns.

I was playing around with the Twister ruler.  Oh my, weren’t those quilts all the rage.  It really was a fun quilt to make.  Here is my attempt…

Twisted-together
Read all about it HEREHERE is a link to the ruler I used.  I made a mini one one time too.

Kelli was home and was machine quilting and working on this quilt…It’s a Miss Rosie pattern.  Read more about it HERE.

I have loved this quilt that Kelli made.  She does an awesome job on color selection.  I love quilts that are more muted color.  I just always think bold when it comes to colors.

Bahahaha…read about this next quilt.  I wrote I was so excited to be starting a new quilt.  Oh my.  This still isn’t finished.  Read more about it HERE.
TributetoJudie-1Last year I did cut out more blocks.  Did I make any more blocks??  Just a few more…like 15 more.  Oh my.  I really should pull this out but right now I am buried in deadline quilts.  UGH.  Someday I’ll sew for myself again.  Someday.

I was so excited to have this done…  Read more about it HERE.  This was a From my Heart to Your Hands Lori Smith pattern.  This was a seasons pattern.  I loved it.  Hmmm. I wonder if I have it anymore.

I made this little pinkeep.  I still have it.  You can read more about it HERE.

This was from a pattern that I bought when I was in San Diego at the conference.

..and this pincushion.  Read about it HERE.

This also came from the quilt shop I visited.  It was the Country Loft.  The shop was wonderful.  Sadly, I clicked the link and it went nowhere so I’m sure the shop must be out of business.

I made myself a pair of mittens from an old vest.  It was so fun.  I still have them.  In fact, last time Karl and I shoveled snow, Karl wore them.  HA!!  You can read more about them HERE.

I remember being so thrilled with making these.  I never made more pairs.   Connie made me a pair and wear hers more than mine.

Well that’s what I was busy crafting and sewing in February of 2010.  I sure like looking back on the old blog posts.  I sure wish I took bigger pictures back then…and I wish I wrote in more detail too.  Thanks to all of you who have stuck with me all this time.  Those old posts really could use some spiffing up..but that was what I was then…this is now.  Now I’m wordy and long and feel free to share share more.  I notice I had typos then too…at least some things haven’t changed!!
