I don't mean my body silly, I'm talking quilts and blocks. I'm magnetically attracted to designs that feature circles and curved piecing. I've made a few as you can see, I've shown all these quilts before on my blog.
I especially love to foundation paper piece the arc shape and I'm having quite a good time with the pickle dish shown on my last post. Thanks for all the encouraging lovely comments, I feel spurred on by you all.
I've had a couple of relaxing evenings doing some more handquilting on the quilt in my new header, I may even finish it sometime this decade. Oh so slow going but it's being quilted within an inch of it's life. Don't ask me why I do that to myself, I'm such a sucker when I start these things and then I find myself committed but I'm happy at the end and it's just as well.
I have so many long term projects lying around and here's another stitchery block that's done and dusted. This one has taken me ages to finish.
I have done no cooking for several weeks :) while I've been in recovery mode but Mr Quiltsalott has gone back to work and I've had to re-aquaint myself with the kitchen. Sad but true.
I made these little quiche pies to go with a green salad for a light meal, they are so easy and the leftovers freeze wonderfully. You can use anything you like for the filling. Want the recipe? I'll give it to you anyway. Great for picnics too.
3 sheets puff pastry
3 large eggs
300 ml's cream
3 rashers middle bacon, cut into small dice.
1/2 small onion finely chopped
3 Tbsp finely chopped parsley
about 1/4 cup grated cheese
Grease a 12 hole muffin pan and pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees C
Using a soufle dish or large cutter, cut 4 circles of pastry out of each sheet.
Place pastry in muffin pan, the tops will flute a bit.
Put a little chopped bacon, onion, parsley and cheese in each pie.
Mix the egg and cream together well with a little black pepper in a measuring jug.
Pour egg mixture in each pie and top with a little grated cheese.
Bake for about 20 minutes or until puffed up and golden.
you may have to turn the oven down a little during cooking if they are browning too fast.
Is anybody interested in me talking about and showing how I'm tackling the arcs and curved piecing on the Licorice Allsorts quilt? If so, I'm happy to give you any info that might interest you next time I do a post. Let me know, I'm happy to oblige.
