Now that the Double Irish Chain is done, I decided to get back to putting my Crumb Quilt together. I found out about Crumb quilts through Debbie's website! I am addicted to them! I have so many scraps, and my students have been giving me scraps over the last year, that I want to make more crumbs and more scrap quilts! Here is what I have done so far with this Crumb Quilt. I have all the rows made, and I started last sewing sewing the rows together into pairs. Tonight I will start sewing the rows to make the quilt top. After that I plan to start with a little border, then another border in more crumbs, all the way around the quilt! I still have a ways to go on this quilt, but I am in no hurry. I'm figuring once I move to my home, my funds may be a bit tighter, but I will have plenty of scraps to make up more quilts!
You will notice one of the side triangles are not sewn right. Yep.. I had a Duh moment.
I also made up a batch of muffins using the Epicure Very Berry mix I mentioned some time ago. Silver Thimble and one of my quilting students asked if I would post the recipe for those muffins. So here it is!
Very Berry Muffins
(This recipe is from an Epicure catalog but they used Tropical Fruit Dip Mix. Since I didn't have that one, I substituted with the Very Berry Fruit Mix. They were very tasty)!!!
2 cups flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup Very Berry Fruit Dip Mix
1 cup milk
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 cup canned or freshly diced pineapple, drained
Preheat the oven to 350º degrees celcius. Mix flour, baking powder, sugar and Very Berry Fruit Dip Mix in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, beat egg. Add milk and oil. Combine wet ingredients with the dry ingredients, stirring just to incorporate. Add pineapple and lightly stir. Fill a 12 cup muffin pan approximately 2/3 full with batter. Bake for about 20 minutes or until browned on top.
Well I am off to do a bit of sewing on my Crumb quilt before 24 comes on! Til Next Time!
