A Notion or Two – March


Posted on March 14th, by Amy in a Notion or Two. 16 comments

Thanks to all of you that took the time to tell me about your ironing habits! It seems that most press their seams in one direction with a couple of exceptions. Within a couple of hours of posting and getting the first bit of feedback, I decided to check into my books that I first bought about quilting. I was thinking maybe it wasn’t in there :) It was – I probably skipped it as I already “knew” how to press seams. I’m completely self-taught in the quilting department :)

Moving on: My block for Sarah! Sarah sent over a great collection of prints with no real specifics for block design, just a bit of texture. I added pintucks!

I even got a cool shot of those cute little tucks –


I made this fabulous cake last night!! Delish – invite some friends over so you have a great excuse to make it! That’s what I did :)

Hope that you are enjoying your weekend ~
Amy

    Very cute block Amy! I’ve never had the nerve to try a choc. cake with coffee in it since I’m not a fan of coffee flavor — can you taste the coffee?
