Quiltiing, baking..........

I wasn't sure I would do much quilting on this X and + quilt yesterday.  I decided to just do a couple lines but once I started though I got about 2/3 of it quilted.





I am just ditch quilting it because I want the focus to be on the fabrics, not the quilting.  I'm using a raspberry variegated Superior King Tut thread and it is blending in most places.


Last night I baked 2 batches of Spritz cookies for the birthday party Sunday.  Today I will bake the chocolate cupcakes and then mix the dough for the 2 batches of cookies for Monday and Tuesday.

I really like how your black grounds your color. Sometimes I need to remind myself how that works. Great example. Beautiful color in your quilt.

Good morning Wanda...Your spritz cookies look so pretty and yummy. I love to bake, and cookies are my favorite. Another colorful quilt of yours' is almost finished and look forward to seeing the end result.

I took your advice and used my large ice pack to put on my shoulder. Stan tied it on for me, and it did feel a little better, so I did it twice yesterday and will keep doing it to see if I get the same results you did. Thanks!

Your cookies look yummy, today is baking day here too. A friend is doing something nice for us tomorrow and I will gift her a box of fudge, cookies and Peanut Butter cupcakes, of course I will need to sample all of them to make sure they are good enough !

My mom use to make those cookies when I was a kid. I remember sitting at the table cutting up maraschino cherries into tiny pieces and place a piece on each cookie.

Wish I could just grab one cookie out of your box----good thing you don't have smell-a-blog or I would be in trouble. Never had chocolate spritz---my mother in law always makes the little green trees for Christmas & my sons devour them immediately!! Your quilt is looking good---so many bright colors!! We are going to have good weather this weekend & hope you do too!!

This X and + quilt of yours was a great favourite of mine when you began it and it still is. I must make one - perhaps this year if I get my act together!

Wow! You have a great start on finishes already and it is only half way through the month of January 2015. Your cookies look delicious.

I am in love with your use of color and fabric. I would love to see your quilts in person. I visit the quad cities sometimes, is Sandwich very far from there? My computer isn't working right cos I can't post unless I do it anonymous.

Ever on the trailing edge of fashion, I just started an X and + quilt. I've made two blocks so far, lol.

you get so much accomplished! and it is all beautiful and delicious looking, the quilts and cookies. Do you have a cookie press to make those? I have an old one handed down that makes those kind of cookies, yummy! I nominated your blog for an award - hope you don't mind. :) http://www.craftsy.com/blog/2015/01/craftsy-blogger-awards-2015/

Hi, may I ask what kind of Spritz maker do you use? I need to buy one but the comments on each are not that great. Thank you for all the daily eye candy!!
