Oh my goodness, I don't think I have ever been the first person to leave a comment. Congratulations on one year of blogging. I am always excited to see what you are working on. Thanks for sharing!

How is it possible that I am the first to comment! Love the quilt, love the blog...I'm absolutely certain I am going to love the fabric line! I'm here everyday to see what kind of shinanigans you are up to!


Jessica - the quilt is beautiful - your work always amazes and inspires me. Thanks so much for your emails re: granny squares. I've done 65+ hexagons and the end is in sight soon for the blanket. Thanks for your blog - I look for it every day!


Oh my, what a great picnic quilt! It's so perfect for days in the park when it's not 110 degrees (we're in Phoenix).

Sugar cookie recipe? You're just as out of luck as I am. My mom won't give me the best sugar cookie recipe in the world. Personally I believe it's because she uses waaay too much butter and doesn't want anyone to know.

This shop on Etsy has one package left of vintage apricot: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=25257646&ref=sr_gallery_1&&ga_search_query=peach+raffia&ga_search_type=supplies&ga_page=&order=date_desc&includes[]=tags&includes[]=title
and here's a random site from the web that specifically calls it peach:
I haven't ordered from either site. Good luck in your search!


Darn! I don't think I've commented before! Beautiful quilt. I like all the different shades of jeans. Have fun!


Ooh! I love that tutorial! Thanks for sharing, let alone doing the giveaway! :-D


I love it...esp. with the frayed edges! I would have liked to see you buying the extra big jeans...it paints a great picture!


I'm not sure if my first comment posted so I'll leave another...trying to remember exactly what I wrote. Please delete this if there's a double. :)

I'm sorry to say you're just as out of luck as I am. My mom won't share her recipe. Personally I believe it's because she uses waaaay too much butter and doesn't want anyone to know.
Good luck with your searches. Thanks for a great giveaway.


Your quilt turned out beautiful! Congrats on one year!


That is so pretty. And kudos to you for using recycled materials.

As for cookies, our current fave is http://smittenkitchen.com/2008/05/crispy-salted-oatmeal-white-chocolate-cookies/ and also http://smittenkitchen.com/2007/12/peanut-butter-cookies/. I don't have any shortbread recipes, sorry.

Congrats on all the posting!

What a beautiful quilt!! :)

Here is some peach raffia along with tons of other colors:


And, here is a shortbread cookie recipe for you...


I LOVE shortbread cookies. :)


Love the quilt! I immediately thought it would be a great picnic blanket and then read on and saw you thought the same thing.

No luck finding peach raffia, but this is a great chocolate chip recipe! http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Best-Big-Fat-Chewy-Chocolate-Chip-Cookie/Detail.aspx

Happy 4th and thanks for all the inspiration!

The quilt OH MY GOODNESS GRACIOUS!!!! Not only is college getting in the way of crocheting now it's getting in the way of making a denim quilt. This will DEF have to go on my list of HAVE TO DO's in about 11 months! Girl you are SOOOOO awesome :)
About the raffia I am clueless. However I've got the cookie recipe that will melt in your mouth.
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs beaten
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tbsp milk
Mix above and then add:
2 1/2 cups sifted flour
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
Roll to 3/8 inch, bake at 375 for 12 minutes

Top with AMAZING frosting as follows
8 oz cream cheese
3-3 1/2 cups powdered sugar (add until frosting stands where the beater leaves it)
1 tsp vanilla

You'll be sad if you make less than 2 or 3 batches.

Happy 4th of July!


I LOVE your quilt and hope you have a tute later! It is so bright and cheerful!

When you find that perfect cookie recipe please do share. I've tried a few with not so great results. You're actually linked to in my blog so I check everytime there is a new post:)
