Quilts and Scones...

Last night I finished a beautiful customer quilt. This was made by the friend of mine who came to visit me in August. She does beautiful work, I've shown her quilts before in my blog. This is her latest masterpiece!



I quilted freehand feathers all over...it was such fun!


And this afternoon, I whipped up a batch of cinnamon scones using my new mini scone pan which I bought with my gift card to Sur La Table. They turned out good, but would probably be much better if I added some cinnamon chips to them. I'll have to check the grocery store and see if I can get them. If not, they sell them in the King Arthur Flour Baker's Catalog.


My next project is working on the borders for my Challenge Quilt for MQX. They will be appliqued...once I design them! I don't think I'll work as quickly as Ann did on her borders though...nor will they look as beautiful!

I didn't know there was such a thing as a scone pan -- I just make a round and then cut wedges. Gotta love that Sur la Table -- they have everything *s*

Neat use of log cabins in that top quilt, you're right she does wonderful work. :)

I've never had a scone, but yours do look pretty in that pan!

This quilt is a beauty!

Terrific quilt; put the coffee on, I'm on my way over for a chat and some scones!! LOL

I'm always amazed at what can be done with a simple log cabin block. There's certainly nothing "simple" about that quilt! It's gorgeous.

...and did I miss the recipe for these cinnamon treats?

Do so please share.

The quilt is beautiful.

Fantastic quilt and quilting! The little scones look scrumptious :-)

Your scones are making me hungry. Very pretty!

That quilt is exquisite. You'd need a big design wall to make a quilt like that!

What an absolutely stunning quilt!

Your scones look very yummy! I've never made scones before, are they hard to make?

Finn said...

Hi Carolyn, the quilt and the scones look equally good! I'd probably end up liking the scones the best tho...LOL
They do look tempting. And what great string blocks, both fun and addictive I think. Your new Women of the Bible is very lovely. Hugs, Finn

Yum, the scones look delicious!

The quilt is beautiful, but the feathers make it even more so.

Samantha said...

Those scones look delicious, chips or no. And your customer's quilt is amazing!
