All Wrapped up Remembering Dad All Wrapped up Remembering Dad
By: Debbie Lange Quilting,
Indiana, USA

I made this quilt for my mother with all of my Dad’s silk ties. Each crazy patch block has a red center just as the traditional log cabin block has a red center to represent the hearth of the home. The pieced borders and binding are ties also. Backing is faux suede so it is very soft and comforting.

By: Debbie Grasley,

Since my mom’s favorite color is red, I thought a Christmas quilt would be the one to make for her. I had just learned how to make a dresden plate at that time and thought I would try to make a quilt out of them. She loves it and has it hanging on her wall. Happy Mother’s Day! Love you mom!

    I don’t drink or make smoothies. Drink water and eat the fruit :0)

  • May 11, 2013 at 10:58 am

    This is one of my favorite smoothies, High in protein and energy and tastes wonderful.
    1 small Chobani greek yogurt
    1 Tablespoon ground Chia seed
    1 Tablespoon ground flax seed
    1/2 banana
    1/2 cup milk or orange juice
    1 cup mixed fruit (fresh blueberries, strawberries, cherries, etc)
    1 or 2 ice cubes
    Put in a blender, puree and enjoy!

  • May 11, 2013 at 11:34 am

    I don’t make smoothies (mainly b/c my blender is packed up and it is a pain to get it out and find room in my mini kitchen) However, once we move at the end of the month, that will change. I am looking at the smoothie recipes with great interest.

  • May 11, 2013 at 2:23 pm

    Smoothies of all varieties are popular at our home. I use whatever fruit’s on hand. However, one of our favorites is vanilla yogurt, bananas, walnuts, and a splash of vanilla extract.

  • May 11, 2013 at 2:31 pm

    I never make smoothies, just drink them when other people make them. I’ve tasted them with fruits in, not vegetables. I love Lori Holt’s fabrics, and would be happy to win some.

  • May 11, 2013 at 3:50 pm

    I use my Bullit and try to make smoothies everyday but fruit only I’ve never tried veggies though.

  • May 11, 2013 at 4:09 pm

    I occasionally make a smoothie with strawberries & bananas. I add a carton of plain yogurt and some protein powder then fill the blender with soy milk.

  • May 11, 2013 at 5:49 pm

    I don’t make smoothies but I like the fruit ones whenever anybody makes them.

  • May 11, 2013 at 7:41 pm

    All I do is Bananamilkshakes with vailla or choclate icecream ;-)

  • May 11, 2013 at 10:47 pm

    Sorry, no help here as I don’t make them, but would love to drink them. Beautiful quilts this week. Looking forward to seeing your weekend project.

  • May 11, 2013 at 11:47 pm

    I have a Magic Bullet and make fruit smoothies in the summer. I enjoy them more than ice cream. Don’t really use a recipe. Just put in half a banana, about 5 strawberries, and a cup of frozen mango chunks with some fruit juice and mix it up. Yummy! Hubby puts yogurt in his with blueberries banana and strawberries. {Using frozen fruit you don’t need to add ice.}

  • May 12, 2013 at 12:14 am

    I have never made a smoothy. But my son was talking about making them and he said when he has an over ripe banana, he cuts it into cubes and freezes them. Then he uses the frozen banana pieces instead of ice in his smoothys.

  • May 12, 2013 at 3:11 am

    Oh yes I like smoothies, I like the strawberry, kiwi an d orangejuice version. In fact I love all kinds as long as it doesn’t have banana in it. I like bananas but not in a smoothie. I have a juicemachine so making a moothie is very easy to do and so healthy too.

  • May 12, 2013 at 6:30 am

    I don’t make smoothies, but will be looking at the recipes you do get.

  • May 12, 2013 at 8:24 am

    Strawberry Smoothie –
    1 cup almond milk
    4-5 ice cubes
    1 small bananna
    1/4 tsp vanilla
    1 Tbls ground flax seed
    2 small dates chopped up
    1 cup fresh strawberries
    Put all into blender and blend on high until smooth!

  • May 12, 2013 at 3:18 pm

    I have never made a smoothie. The recipes that are in the comments section sound delicious though.

  • May 12, 2013 at 3:24 pm

    I do not make smoothies. I prefer to CHEW my food. I have been known to buy a smoothie. Maybe 4 in my lifetime. Take apple juice, add frozen strawberries to it, add frozen bananas to it. Blend. Ideal for a hot summer day. That is my extent of smoothie recipes.

  • May 12, 2013 at 3:25 pm

    Yes!! I love smoothies!! I start with plain, Greek yogurt, soy milk, a banana and add whatever else I have on hand.

  • May 12, 2013 at 3:27 pm

    I like smoothies after a trip to the gym. I use a frozen banana, peanut butter, protein powder, and milk. YUM!

  • May 12, 2013 at 3:30 pm

    I love smoothies with raspberrys. I usually check what I have in the house, use like 2 cups of various veggies or fruit and add one banana and 2 cups of raspberrys, 1 tbsp
    sugar and maybe a drop of vanilla.

  • May 12, 2013 at 3:41 pm

    Sorry, I don;t make smoothies, just tooo much trouble.

  • May 12, 2013 at 4:03 pm

    I don’t make smoothies since all the recipes I see use banana and I am allergic to it.

  • May 12, 2013 at 4:44 pm

    Love smoothies but do not make them myself.

  • May 12, 2013 at 4:52 pm

    we lov esmoothies here. I make then quiet a bit fo rbreakfast and aslo for cool snacks.
    I lov eto add fresh fruit and milk or water to mine. Sometimes I also add greek yogurt or keifer. I als add ground flax seed. Sometimes I added fiber powder or vitamin powder. Sometimes I also add vanilla protein powder. SOmetimes I make one from chocolate protein shake powder add intant coffee , sweetner, and skim milk & ice It is kinda like a mocha frapachino healthier though

  • May 12, 2013 at 4:53 pm

    Yes, I love smoothies – it’s the easiest way of getting your daily fruit & veggies ‘eaten’.
    I have never really measured but use the following:
    2 handful of fresh Baby spinach
    a few leaves of Kale
    1 spoonful of sesame seeds
    1 apple
    coconut water

    Enjoy – got to go and make one for myself. Thanks for a chance!

  • May 12, 2013 at 4:56 pm

    No help, sorry Michele, I don’t own a blender so no smoothies made here, but I think you can use pretty much anything that takes your fancy…experimenting could be fun, especially with your summer coming and lots of fresh fruit available.

  • May 12, 2013 at 4:58 pm

    Yes we make smoothies around our house. We never use a recipe just add fruit and milk or juice to the blender and blend until smooth. If our fruit is not frozen we add ice cubes into the mix and blend a little longer. We don’t like ours real sweet so don’t add any sweetener as the fruit is usually sweet enough. The combinations of fruit are whatever you personally like we like to use frozen strawberries, bananas and mangoes if we have them.

  • May 12, 2013 at 5:18 pm

    I never make one the same way twice, it seems. As I can’t tolerate dairy, I have enjoyed adding coconut milk or almond milk to whatever fruits I have on hand. I try to add some chia seeds too.

  • May 12, 2013 at 5:20 pm

    I don’t make smoothies but I DO make Banana Milk from any too ripe bananas. I freeze them after slicing them up and then whirl them in the blender with milk. Tastes great! I’m kinda sad I didn’t get my Mom’s memorial quilt sent in this week. All the entries are awesome!

  • May 12, 2013 at 5:31 pm

    Pick up smoothie.
    Frozen fruit(strawberry, pineapple, blueberry to name some) and soda water, dash of sugar, blend to the consistency you like, adjust sugar to taste, add one serving of your favourite non dairy protein powder in a light flavour such as vanilla or citrus.

  • May 12, 2013 at 7:39 pm

    Apologies, I don’t make smoothies either. But I do love chocolate milk shakes!!! Not good for the waistline, but great while reading a book!!

  • May 12, 2013 at 7:56 pm

    i do not make smoothies but would adore anybody that made me one from fruits. I do eat a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables instead.

  • May 12, 2013 at 8:19 pm

    I make smoothies frequently and love adding kale and a bit of spinach when I have them. Three smoothie recipes for you:

    1 medium Apple, Raw, chopped
    1 Banana-medium, peeled and chopped

    2 tbsp Carob Powder
    1 cup Mixed Greens
    1 cup Frozen Dark Cherries

  • May 12, 2013 at 9:12 pm

    We love smoothies! We always use 1 banana, 2 cups frozen berries, 1/2 large vanilla yogurt, 1/2 cup orange juice, 2 tbs flax seeds, and sometimes spinach (but you can’t taste it I promise!) These amounts are guesses, we just eyeball it depending on how many are thirsty!!

  • May 12, 2013 at 9:27 pm

    Smoothies? I think they take a machine and electricity. Coffee with a bit of milk takes less time and trouble.
    I wish I had a digital picture of the quilt I made for my Mom-in-law. She slept under it every night from the day I finished it until she died at age 98. My son keeps it now.

  • May 12, 2013 at 10:49 pm

    I drink smoothies….love them…but don’t make them. I just go to Smoothie King. Sorry that doesn’t help you. Quilts were beautiful and difficult to pick from. All were were so nice.!

  • May 12, 2013 at 11:15 pm

    I kind of do whatever I feel like for a smoothie. I like to get the big bag of “color spectrum” frozen fruit at Costco. Strawberries, pineapple, honeydew, peaches of two types, blueberries. Put about a cup or so of frozen fruit in the blender. Pour in some milk, about 1/2 cup, and some vanilla yogurt. sometimes a throw a few teaspoons of fiber, like Metamucil. Sometimes I add orange juice. Blend it all up to a consistency you like, adding more milk or juice if you want. Pour into a tall glass. Drink immediately (I like a straw!).
    I love Riley Blake fabric!

  • May 13, 2013 at 12:51 am

    Mango and frozen yogurt! YUM!

  • May 13, 2013 at 1:18 am

    ik maak geen smoothies sorry

  • May 13, 2013 at 1:25 am

    I really don’t make smoothies. Somehow it reminds me of being sick and those crazy things “we Moms” would give to our kids, hoping to get them to drink anything. I like to chew and taste my fruits and vegetables.

  • May 13, 2013 at 1:36 am

    We wing it every time: a bit of yoghurt (plain not flavoured), whatever fruit is on hand (frozen or fresh), milk to get it to the preferred consistency. Sometimes a tablespoon of oatmeal (blend for extra time if you’ve added oats) too.

    Or a monkey’s milkshake: yog/milk/banana/peanut butter. Add a bit of chocolate ovaltine powder (a staple in our house) for chocolate flavour.

  • May 13, 2013 at 2:19 am

    Yes I make fruit smoothies for breakfast and it is my favorite thing to have. Must have a banana and I usually have pineapple as a base, then whatever fruit is on hand like berries or mangoes, sometimes an apple.
    Sometimes I will add spinach or kale for a green smoothie.

  • May 13, 2013 at 7:37 am

  • May 13, 2013 at 11:39 am

    I don’t make smoothies, but would like to try one some day.! I hope you find some good recipes.

  • May 13, 2013 at 11:41 am

    I love smoothies. I do a simple one that 4 year old granddaughter likes.
