June 4 2013 Quilting Newsletter


Good day everyone, another week has whizzed by and itís time for my newsletter to you. Iíve had a busy week catching up with my crafting friends and getting some sewing done. Weíve had some overcast days lately, which are ideal for bunkering down in my sewing room and working over a hot sewing machine!

I have another easy Quilters Quickie recipe for you. This one Iíve been making for years, and made some up last weekend for a dinner party (I was the canapťs). Theyíre called Savoury Puffs and only use five ingredients.

Hereís how: 2 boiled eggs, cut up; 3 slices of ham off the bone cut up; 3 shallots chopped up; 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise; and sheets of puff pastry. Mix the eggs, ham and shallots with the mayo. Cut the pastry sheet into nine squares. Place a little of the mixture on each square and fold over, using a fork to stick together. Pop in a hot oven for about 15 mins. Yummy!! This is very quick to put together and creates a meal in minutes!

Iíve been slowly getting some articles written for the How To Series Iíve started and last week I posted an article explaining the handful of formulas that I use when quilting. Hereís the link to that article: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art180660.asp

Weíve had a request from a regular reader for a simple scrappy quilt to make with a grandchild. Pop over to the forum and offer your suggestions: hereís the link: http://forums.bellaonline.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/823999/Quilt_Pattern_for_a_child_to_m#Post823999
