Dec.12th… a few more tied quilts,and an experiment 

I finished up some tied quilts,some were from scraps that were in Mom’s attic. Some were old knits that were in great shape!


I put fleece on the back of the knit,it is so soft.

Then I had some heavy fabric, I think it is upholstery fabric . It is one heavy quilt!!


Then a few more scraps put to good use!





I received the cutest little gourd ornaments from my oldest son.


Now the experiment.. many years ago I used to make friendship cake which my hubby loved ,somewhere along the line I last the recipe. I love the Internet when looking for a recipe,it’s amazing what you can find. I found this fruit cake recipe that has a starter that needs to set for 30 days. It won’t be ready for Christmas like I wanted but it just might be for the New Year! Here the starter in its jar.. if it is a good recipe I’ll post it.


Have a lovely week! Deb

    You are really prolific in finishing tied quilts! Is this technique faster or easier than machine quilting? I’ve never tried tying quilts but it appeals more and more to me as I see so many cozy quilts on your blog.

      To me it is easier,for I’m not good at all with machine quilting.. I also can use thicker batting to make heavier quilts ,tying is the way to go then. You also can use different fabrics that would be almost impossible to quilt. You do have to use larger seams so they don’t fray at the seams with time.

    Wow–you’ve been productive! I especially like the quilt with the blacks squares–the other blocks glow. The little gourds are charming–I like the pine bough one a lot! Your fruitcake starter looks like a science experiment . . . . I’ll be interested in its progress . . .
