Delurking (I should ought might have done it earlier, but I have a baby who will not sleep) to say this is a great quilt (I will steal the idea, just as soon as baby lets me) and I love the colors you picked. Also, here's to another hundred and some posts (and then some more).



The quilt looks great! I love the image of you digging for huge jeans- very funny :-)
As usual the colors are great!


What a wonderful prize! I can only hope that the comments from previous posts will help me here! And, I will keep an eye on a good shortbread/sugar cookie recipe. That is something I have really wanted to find for myself as well!

p.s. I can't wait to see that fabric!


Ok, I LOVE this cookie recipe... it my go to... so simple yet soooo delicious

250g butter softened
1 cup icing sugar
2 1/2 cups plain flour
3 teaspoons vanilla extract

1. Cream butter and sugar in mixer until light and fluffy.
2. Add in vanilla and beat some more
3. Stir in flour

Roll into log shapes and put in fridge. After 30 mins to 1 hour pull out and cut 1cm lengths off into cookies.

Bake in moderate oven for 10 mins or until lightly golden at edges.

I love to add different things to mine like half a cup of glace cherries, or choc chips, or ground hazlenuts, or lemon/orange rind... You add this with the flour.

Trust me these are SO very tasty



P.S- ON the raffia front... I know this company makes synthetic raffia


and it appears they make a peach raffia (in fact pretty much every colour)


perhaps try one of their stocklisters

to see if they have it in stock?

Your quilt is absolutely adorable. It makes me want to go on a picnic immediately! Congratulations on 1-year! Love your blog.


i love the colors in the quilt! it is so summery...great for a picnic! if you get and try a great cookie recipe, will you share which one (im especially eager to find out if you get a good lemony one!)


I've had this pattern marked on my favorites for a while now. I'd love to win!! I love the bright colors against the blue. Well done.


I love it! If I don't win it, I will definitely be making one!


Great idea for a quilt - I'm gonna look at my goodwill for huge jeans too! They already think I'm crazy so I'll just add to the mystery :) How fun!


wow! that looks great!


I'm glad I've gotten to know you too. It seems as if we entered this blogging world at about the same time! I love it too.

The quilt is GREAT!!!


This really is just such a fun quilt - love it!

I do have a cookie recipe, but it is with the Christmas stuff. It is a spice cookie recipe to make cut-outs. Maybe come Christmas when I find it again I can share it because it really is good! (sorry to tease you in such a way!)


Congratulations on your blogiversary!
(I am sorry I don't have any links nor recipes; not that great at baking nor cooking...)
I love your quilt! You did a really, really great job with it. The denim combined with all those great colours... Simply delicious! And it would be perfect for a picnic, you are absolutely right.

Lovely quilt, I love the recycled nature of the denim.

I still am in search of that perfect cut out recipe, but being gluten free, that hunt is a long one, year six of the hunt to date.

You are so kind with this giveaway. Love your blog and creativity.

Thanks! Carrie
