H2H Link Up

I missed the Link Up party last Sunday so before this week is totally gone I am taking care of it now. I have decided that in the spirit of starting no new projects I am going to be using quilt tops that I have already made that just need to be made into quilts. I would rather have these quilts loved by someone then sitting unfinished in my drawer. 

The first one I will use is the very first quilt top I made after finding blogger. It is Simple Sampler Quilt Along by Amy's Creative Side. It was a great way for me to learn how to piece. She did a very nice tutorial on all the blocks. I had not done any piecing up to that point that was not paper piecing. The blocks started out easy and then got harder as we went along. It is bright and colorful and I am sure someone will love it.

The next one is The Happy Quilting Quilt Along by Melissa Corry. It was her very first Quilt Along and it was so fun and easy. I loved the whole process. It is a great tutorial with great pictures. I love this quilt. I love the colors and the way the blocks look. I hope that it will make someones day. 

Now for my treat. I love these cookies. The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies. My daughter makes these a lot. I made them for my Daughter-in-laws baby shower. They were a hit. One batch made over 6 dozen cookie. We do not set the dough in the fridge we use a cookie scooper and then divide that dough ball in half. Then we press the dough into plain or colored sugar. Bake per directions. You will then have a sweet great cookie. 

Thank you again to Sarah over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict for running this for us. I can't wait to see the end quilts.

  1. Great idea to use existing flimsies to finish up for a quilt that will certainly be loved. And I remember both of these QALs!
