Quilting and Bread Making

I am a quilter.  My husband has become a bread maker.  When I compare the two crafts, they are not as different as one would think.

Quilting:

  • Choose or design a pattern
  • Choose fabric
  • Measure and cut out fabric
  • Piece blocks or the quilt top
  • Quilt the quilt top
  • Bind the quilt
  • Label the quilt
  • Use the quilt for some quilty love

Bread Making:

  • Choose or create a recipe
  • Choose the ingredients
  • Measure the ingredients
  • Combine the ingredients
  • Place bread in a baking dish
  • Score the top of the bread
  • Bake the bread
  • Cut the bread
  • Eat the bread for some yummy in your tummy love

Go ahead – make a quilt or make some bread.  Both bring different kinds of love but both are also loved!

    Food for Quilting Colors

    I have said it before and I will say it again – MANY of the food items that we eat are quilt color inspirations.  This is a photo of a delicious pasta salad I made.  Take a look at the colors (below the image) that would make a fabulous quilt!

        Quilt Friends: Peanut Butter Cornflake Cookies

        If you have all of your ingredients together, this is a 15 minute recipe – but the pleasure of this delectable treat lasts for hours!

        Ingredients:

        1 c. light corn syrup
        1/2 c. packed brown sugar
        1/2 c. sugar
        2 teaspoons vanilla
        1 1/2 c. creamy peanut butter
        4 1/2 c. Corn Flakes

        Directions:

        In a large bowl, measure and place the Corn Flakes.  Then, put the first 3 ingredients into a sauce pan and bring to a rolling boil.  Remove from heat and add the vanilla and peanut butter, stirring until all of the peanut butter is melted and the mixture is smoothe.  Then, pour the liquid mixture over the Corn Flakes and stir well with a rubber scraper, coating everything.  Drop by tablespoonful onto parchment paper and allow to cool.

        It may just become your next best quilt friend!
