A Notion or Two – March

Thanks to all of you that took the time to tell me about your ironing habits! It seems that most press their seams in one direction with a couple of exceptions. Within a couple of hours of posting and getting the first bit of feedback, I decided to check into my books that I first bought about quilting. I was thinking maybe it wasn’t in there :) It was – I probably skipped it as I already “knew” how to press seams. I’m completely self-taught in the quilting department :)

Moving on: My block for Sarah! Sarah sent over a great collection of prints with no real specifics for block design, just a bit of texture. I added pintucks!

I even got a cool shot of those cute little tucks —

I made this fabulous cake last night!! Delish – invite some friends over so you have a great excuse to make it! That’s what I did :)

Hope that you are enjoying your weekend ~

    Very cute block Amy! I’ve never had the nerve to try a choc. cake with coffee in it since I’m not a fan of coffee flavor — can you taste the coffee?
