Pieceful Nights: A Sampler Quilt. As mentioned in a previous post, this sampler is from Oak Leaf Quilts http://www.oakleafquilts.com/ and when I finish one block on time, I get the next one free. It is a great way to get a quilt practically free. The fabric is not batik, http://www.batiks.com/ which is my fabric of choice, 2nd only to Civil War http://www.bonniebluequilts.com/, and a close 3rd to hand-dyes, and coming up 4th to anything from Moda http://www.modafabrics.com/. Seriously, I love just about all fabric!
http://www.frommyhearttoyourhands.com/. Check out her web site. If you are a traditional quilter, you will lover her work. I don't know where I fit...traditional, artsy quilts, off-the-wall quilts, baby quilts...I love them all. Well almost. I am having a time with the Washington State sampler from Gathering Fabrics in Woodinville, WA http://www.gatheringfabrics.com/. Basically, the theme blocks are floral but the latest block was a birdbath and bird. I had a problem with the bird because it was a blue bird. Washington state bird is the American goldfinch http://www.netstate.com/states/symb/birds/wa_willow_goldfinch.htm. So, I proceeded to change the block with a goldfinch at the birdbath. What do you think?
Well, now on to dinner. I tried another Thai dinner. The problem is this: I only had a few things in the refrigerator. Here goes another hit or miss! This is what I had on hand.
- Chinese cabbage
- sweet red peppers
- venison sausage
