Quilt, Cooking, and Baskets

1. Prayers

I made the two baskets shown.  The larger basket with a handle is called Jeremiah and was the first basket I ever wove.  It's one of my favorites because of it's versatile use.

The smaller, round basket is one I designed as a beginner basket pattern I taught some friends.



My favorite muffin is my mother's recipe for Brown Sugar Muffins.  She always made them as we grew up and the smell of them baking still gives me warm childhood fuzzies!



This little quilt was one I designed for Tooele (Utah) County Quilter's Guild Challenge in 2004.  


It was a fun idea, crayons were wrapped up in a little package and those who wanted to participate choose one.




The rules that we could use the color of the crayon, and shades of it, and one neutral color such as white, cream, black to create a quilt of any kind.  I was still new to hand applique, so I wanted something to practice my skills.


The fabrics are from Sandy Gervais' Happy Hollow collection.

I used to make baskets also, but haven't done that for years. The quilt is wonderful and your applique looks great. Can't wait to try the muffin recipe.
