Rosa Parks - a piece of history

The Library of Congress recently announced that they had digitized Rosa Parks' personal collection of papers, letters, and photographs. Amongst the papers was a hand written recipe for "Featherlite Pancakes." My children and I tried the recipe today and I was truly amazed by how light they are! Try some - and truly share in a taste of history.
 
 

Sift:
1 cup flour (140 grams)
2 Tablespoons Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar

Mix:
1 egg
1 1/4 cup milk
1/3 cup peanut butter melted
1 tablespoon melted shortening or oil

Combine both wet and dry ingredients.

(Note this batter seems really runny, but it works. Make sure your griddle/skillet is hot before you start.)

May I show you my backside?



Of my quilt in progress silly!  Remember this quilt top?

I used the leftover half square triangles from the blue/white X squares that look like this:

  

Seemingly insignificant right? How many times have you thrown away these scraps?

We'll  instead of throwing them away - I made these!











These will be on the back side of this quilt. Each blue/white half square triangle is 1 inch...the total pieced star part of this block is 4 3/4". It was fun to see these come together....what will you do with your scraps?

Embroidered quilt labels


We are hanging our annual quilt show tomorrow at the Rome, GA library.  It is always so exciting to see the quilts adorn the walls and staircase.  In preparation, I needed to label my two quilts that will be hanging.  I made them using my embroidery machine.  I went ahead and made 4 of them, so I guess that means I am committed to two more finishes in 2014!









I used fusible webbing on the back, so all I had to do was iron it on.....have I ever mentioned how much I hate handwork?
