Flower Scrappy Applique Quilt

I was inspired by a Riley Blake Design made by Lori Holt
I was looking for a quilt for my grand daughter Bella that was cheerful, and whimsical. I was able to use lot of my colorful scraps, and since she is a big Frozen fan I have a little bit of Elsa in there too.

The design is drawn on Pelon then sewn like the sample on the right. 
                                              Then the Pelon is cut and material is reversed like sample on the right.


Homemade Pesto

This is a real quick and easy recipe. It saves my basil from going to waste.

Ingredients: fresh basil 3 cups
fresh garlic 3 cloves
1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil
Parmesan  cheese 1/2 cup
Salt to taste
1/2 cup of pine nuts or pecans

place garlic
And basil,ans nuts in chopper, drizzle olive oil over all, and pulse several times till well blended 
Place in empty ice cube trays and freeze, place in plastic baggie after pesto is frozen use for that fresh pesto taste in sauces,
