Great Weekend

My oldest son, Chad, came to Pennsylvania this weekend to do a "Noodle Games" presentation for the APHERD Eastern District Conference at the conference center in Lancaster. This was my first opportunity to see him present. I was totally blown away. He is informative, engaging and is a wonderful public speaker. His Mama was so proud...can you tell?

I quilted Alex's quilt on Thursday night and finished the hand sewing on the binding last night. Because I think this quilt will get a lot of use, I decided to top stitch in the ditch by machine to be sure that the binding was secure. Chad arrived back in Virginia early this afternoon and I have been waiting patiently for a photo and video download of Alex's reaction to the quilt. As I mentioned before, I chose to not cut up fabric for the body of the quilt. I did not want to lose the fabric design. Here are a couple of photos that I took before he left this morning.

I know the photo is horrible but here is a close up of the quilting. I used a large meander to sort of replicate the train track design.

Tonight for supper I decided to make a quiche with turkey leftovers in the freezer. Doesn't it look good?

It was pretty darned tasty! I love making up quiche recipes. One of my "secret" ingredients is sour cream. I rarely have half & half or even whole milk in my fridge but I always have sour cream. I use about 3/4 cup of 1 or 2 percent milk and 3/4 of a cup of sour cream. Works like a dream and the sour cream just adds a little something to the quiche flavor.

I think I may actually get the "Strip Twist" quilt top finished this week. I am really in the mood to sew and I never know how long that will last!


  1. Suzan,
    Your quilt is fabulous, and your quiche looks oh, so yummy!

    Glad you had a good weekend. Have a great week as well.

  2. How funny...I have been craving quiche and will be making one this weekend. Do you have a recipe that you can share?

    I love you qilt. It is so adorable. I have to make one for my youngest son before April and I love this idea. I can not wait to get the correct open toe foot for my machine.

  3. That quilt is adorable! Your quiche looks yummy - I made a fritata that looked very similar for brunch yesterday.

  4. The quilt is so cute!!!! Would love to have the recipe for the quiche (I'm totally a quiche virgin) and what are Noodle Games????

    Inquiring minds want to know!!!!
