Quilts and Cookies

My Letters From Grace quilt made with all of the fabrics from my new Tall Grass fabrics is  bound and ready for cuddling.
My quilter friend, Ronda, added her magic and made the quilt all the more special.  
If you're like me, you're always looking for quilting ideas, so I though I'd share what we chose for this quilt.
When designing Tall Grass, I made sure to have a nice range of greens from lights to darks and some with added colors and textures.  For some reason, green is a color that we use a lot, especially in applique, but is a color that is not always available in a nice range on shop shelves at any given sure to add some to your collection!

Tall Grass will be delivered to your local quilt ship in January....just a few short weeks from now.  Yay....I can't wait!
The hustle and bustle of the season is well upon us and I'm sure you're making last minute preparations for the holiday festivities.  My daughter Nicki and I bake loads of cookies and make up trays of assorted cookies for our family and friends.  
This cookie, Chocolate Walnut Crumb Barsis one of my favorites, is super easy to make, even at the last moment when time is short.  Let's face's good anytime of year!  
Click here for the Chocolate Walnut Crumb Bar recipe.  It's full of chocolatey goodness!

My studio is closed until next week so I can just concentrate on enjoying the holiday.  Today, we will spend the day in the kitchen (as most of us will) making the last two cookies, and preparing to make two pans of my great-grandma Battaglia's lasagna.  Oh my's wonderful, but loads of work.  While I'm in the middle of it all, I may as well make two pans and freeze one to enjoy later.  The house will smell sssoooooo good!  

Hoping all your holiday plans are full of yummy food with family and friends.  Enjoy the doubt you've worked hard to make it all happen.
