Friday Favorites 06

Friday, February 11, 2022

Happy Friday! I'm back with another Friday Favorites post. Hope your week went well!

- Very tempted by the Grounded collection by Alex Roda that Crimson Tate just stocked! The colors are really calling to me!

- I love the softness of Jolene Klassen's log cabin blocks (found via Instagram). The mix of prints is so cozy feeling.

- Hillary Goodwin's Log Cabin Schoolhouse quilt stopped me in my tracks (found via Instagram). Feels like the perfect mix of modern and traditional.

- In terms of sewing this week I've primarily been working on sorting, pressing and processing my scraps to make my new scrap quilt project go a little smoother. I did all the pressing in front of the tv downstairs, so I gave my panasonic cordless iron a real workout and it did great! This is the one I have*, which doesn't seem to be available anymore. This one* looks really similar though.

- It was an exciting week for baking! It was Michael's birthday and we made him some mini cakes using the hot cocoa cake recipe from the Zingerman's Bakehouse Cookbook*. They're really chocolatey and delicious!

- We tried a new recipe for dinner this week, these Vegan Sheet Pan Faijtas from Pinch of Yum. We made the the cashew queso too and we were surprised by how much we liked it!

- Lately I've been working on refreshing some old blog posts and this week the big one was my Giant Vintage Star Quilt Tutorial. I uploaded larger (and clearer) photos, remade some of the graphics and just generally updated the text and format to better match my current tutorial style.

- Once it is warm enough to work in the garage again, I really want to make floating frames for the couple of original art pieces that I have. This tutorial from The Sorry Girls (found via Youtube) makes it look so simple!

- I had some good thrifting finds this week, but my favorite was this shop cats puzzle*. Found it for $4 at Goodwill!

Dusty says hi! She was on my lap a lot this week.

Have a Great Weekend!

  1. Love the scraps and your bedsheet star quilt, so colorful :) Dusty looks so sweet :)

  2. Love your scrap basket. What sizes do you cut? The 1.5" looking blocks look like they are nestled in reusable individual sized hummus cups, or perhaps applesauce? 🤔

    1. Thanks! I actually haven't done any cutting yet! The containers are from take-out, similar to the containers you'd get from a deli! Most of the pieces in those containers are around 2.5" square or smaller, and approx 4" strips or smaller.

  3. Those fajitas with queso sound really good! I just printed out the recipe. Your scrap piles look so pretty organized by color.
