I decided not to do continue on with Bonnie Hunter's Grand Illusion mystery as I wasn't that wild about the pattern in the end. Here is what I ended up with--a cat quilt to lay on a dining room chair. The cats love it and I am happy I made a small quilt with what I actually had completed.
Quiltmaker's Bitty Block challenge. A block of the month row quilt and the baskets blocks were for February.
Some time ago I ordered Victory Garden from Busy Bee Designs as I just love Union Jacks. I finally got around to playing with the pattern\ and made a couple of blocks using a pansy fabric I have had for ages. I hope to play some more and end up with a lap quilt.
Finally, something not quilting-related. A friend posted some cute Easter deviled eggs on Facebook recently and I decided to give it a go. It was such fun and brought back childhood memories of coloring eggs. It was a spur of the moment thing so don't expect great things LOL. First, here are a few chickens that produce the eggs.
Combine 1/2 cup water with 1 tablespoon cider vinegar then add a few drops of food coloring and add the cooked egg white. Soak until you get the desired color.
