Happy Sunday! As promised, I have so much to share! This has been a very productive weekend! I celebrated with my family my great-nephew Parker’s 1st birthday yesterday and had a great time. Because that was most of the day yesterday, I wasn’t very productive. But today!! Today I have been super productive! And it started with….
The recipe is basic and very easy to make. I found it online and decided to try it.
1 3/4 cups flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 3/4 cup milk (I used nonfat dry instant milk reconstituted)
1/2 cup melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
Mix ingredients until they are combined well with no lumps. I put about 2/3 cup batter in my waffle iron, but not all waffle irons are the same.
This recipe makes about 4 large waffles. Oooh soo good!!!
After breakfast, I got started on finishing up (as much as I could) my charm pack quilt. The pattern I used I found online, and it is nine 5 inch squares sewn into a 9 patch square:
I modified the pattern I found online because I needed 10 larger 9 patch squares, and didn’t have enough of the charm pack fabric from Benerdex. I added a neutral fabric from my Moda Neutral charm pack. Once you have the 9 squares sewn together, cut the big square in half, both ways to create 4 squares, approximately 7 x 7 inches squares.
Once you have all your 7 inch squares cut, you are ready to sew into rows and then create the quilt top.
Here is the quilt top partially finished. It is 5 blocks across by 8 blocks long. It isn’t big enough, in my opinion for a throw quilt. I plan on adding sashing on all sides in a neutral color (which will probably be the same as the backing and binding). It was such an easy and fast project. And I love it, I love the color and pattern and the fabric.
I am heading out-of-town for vacation to my Mom and Dad’s for the holiday, so I am sure that I will have some great photos and posts to share. My Mom said that she thinks we are going to be canning jelly this week. Also, tonight, I am going to put together my list of works in progress (WIP) that I WILL finish for July! I will be sure to post that list and the progress.
Lastly….I am expecting any day in the mail the fabrics I ordered from The Fabric Shoppe on Etsy. I have 2 nieces that are pregnant, one is due in November and one is due in January. I am so excited to get started on their quilts. Baby #1 has a shower at the beginning of August, so I MUST get his quilt done by then.
Enjoy your week!
