The 40" African 16 patch wallhanging is done, the first finish for April.
The binding is sewn onto the Kaffe zig zag and I have started the hand sewing.
Here are 4 of the 5 quilts that went home with relatives on Sunday after the wedding shower. They are left to right for a 20 year old great-nephew, wedding present for nephew and wife, shower gift for nephew and wife and last one for a 4 year old great nephew. I also gave one to my sister in law but don't have a photo of it. It was made before digital cameras so I may have a real photograph of it, maybe not.
Many people requested the recipe for the frosted creams so here it is:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream 3/4 c. Crisco and 3/4 c. sugar
Add 2 egg yolks and 3/4 c. molasses
Add alternately 1 1/8 c. cold water with 3 c. flour, 3/4 t.baking soda, 3/4 t. cinnamon, 3/4 t. salt. (I do 1/3 of flour and other dry ingredients first, then half of the water, another third of flour, other half water, then remaining flour) beating well after each. Spread in a 11.25" x 17.25" greased pan. Bake 30 min. or until edges are browned and pulling away from pan. Frost with your favorite butter cream frosting. Yield, about 40 pieces.
