I know, I am a bad girl and didn't get it quilted. I may have forgotten to order backing when I ordered the material for the top though - and didn't have anything on hand that would work unfortunately. Backing is ordered now though - and I will get it quilted and updated pics ASAP.
Any suggestions for quilting? I don't have a longarm, so my quilting is done on my sewing machine. I was thinking about a FMQ swirl for this one - it has been a while since I did swirls :) Although diagonal straight line stitching might be nice here too. Hmmm.
I noticed that I forgot to share the finished picture of my scrappy Irish chain quilt! This is a variation of my scrappy Irish chain quilt I made for Moda Bake Shop (that one I used a ''Pond'' green chain and Bonnie and Camille fabrics). This one has a red chain and American Jane fabrics (Pezzy prints and Wee Play mostly). I adore this quilt, and it is a keeper! I did a simple crosshatch in red thread and the backing is red-multi Pezzy print :) My favorite!
My favorite holiday treat is my toffee recipe. It started as 'almond roca', but over the years I have omitted the almonds and I like it just as much (and that is one less ingredient to have on hand. This is a recipe that I almost always have the ingredients to make.
3/4c. salted butter (1 1/2 cubes)
1 c. packed dark brown sugar (light brown can be used too, but I prefer dark)
Mircrowave on HIGH for 3 more minutes (some microwaves might take a little longer). Whisk well and then quickly spread onto a greased foil-lined cookie sheet (it is still cooking as you pull it out of the microwave, so do this quick so it doesn't burn right in front of your eyes!)
