Random: Made a quilt top and made a sweet





 


Thank you for the recommendation of the quilting book.  It is in my Amazon shopping cart now! I can't wait to get the book and try something new!   Do you like getting new books?? S and I both love getting new books. I prefer look over the photos before I read, but she prefers reading from the first page to the last!   But at the end, we sign our books with our name and date. We share what we read and show each other the most interest pages.

If you need some tasty summer dessert, try the {Lemon bar}. It is surely delicious. The recipe called a full cup of fresh lemon juice, but we only used a 1/2 cup instead, but we had 3 tbsp of lemon zest. The crust is crispy and the filling is sweet and soft.   We brought some to our friends last night and had dinner together. We all think it would go well with bitter coffee.

The green, blue, and yellow quilt top is finished. I have never finished a quilt top in a day. It is a simple patchwork piece. No fancy blocks, but what I really like about this quilt is the simplicity of it.  I named it Lemon Tree Quilt!
