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.

Christmas comes to Ohio Christmas comes to Ohio
By: Debbie Grasley,
Minnesota, USA

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 have never made a smoothie but do make milkshakes and malts.

  • May 13, 2013 at 11:50 am

    I do make smoothies – fruit. I put a banana, half an apple, and a handful of berries in a blender or Magic Bullet with ice, add about 1/4 cup of raw oatmeal and, if I have it, a handful of flaxseed, cover with orange juice, and blend. If I have fresh fruit, great, but I also put fruit that is getting soft but is not yet bad into the freezer to use for smoothies. If I use frozen fruit, it reduces the amount of ice I use. No real measurements, though – I make my smoothies the way I make my quilts – no patterns.

    I have made smoothies, using strawberries, bananana, and juice. But I prefer to buy them then I can get the extra kick added when I need it.

    I’ve never made a smoothie. But we do like to make peanut butter milkshakes!

    sorry I dont’ make smoothies but I’d love to try some. I’ve heard that using agave instead of sugar is good for diabetics . I dont’ understand the whole concept of sugars but I think those that do will be able to explain why :) Thanks for the chance to participate in the judging, I always enjoy this.

    Smoothies are tasty. I have made them using strawberries, drained pineapples, low fat yogurt and a bit of low fat sour cream. Yummy!!
    For a bit of crunch fold in a teaspoon of chopped walnuts and enjoy!
