Sunday Stash #89 - The Easter Edition

Happy Easter! You eating ham yet? Me neither, but it's in the cards. Did you have a nice April Fool's Day? Did you get pranked? Did you prank someone? I always enjoy the holiday. I made these signs for the front and back doors at work. I fooled a few people. It made them cranky, but I think they were cranky anyway.

I made this ad for Tony Roma's Facebook page. No one inquired about purchase.

Paper pieced bunny Peeps. I LOVE having an automatic thread cutter for paper piecing. It makes production go much quicker.

I made this little quilt top based on a favorite T-shirt by Patchwork Threads. The squares are 3".

A new pimento cheese recipe. It's yum and involves roasting red peppers and pickle juice. Delicious.

No neon orange here. They must add food coloring to store pimento cheese.

Here's the recipe from The Roosevelt restaurant in Richmond, VA.

Pimento Cheese
2 cups Cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 cup Mayonnaise
1/4 cup Red Peppers, fresh, roasted, minced
2 Tablespoons Pickle juice
1 Tablespoon Hot sauce
1 Teaspoon Mustard, grainy

Stir all ingredients together and refrigerate until needed.

Not sure if I showed these fabrics before. The MQG Riley Blake Designs Challenge. The challenge is to make something quilted that you've never done before.

April's Canton Village Quilt Works Kona solids were shades of grey. Very pretty. I was plumb out of grey solids.
Here's the stack of Kona solids so far. I wonder what color comes next?

I worked on these Easter-ey colored blocks over the weekend. I'm using reproduction fabrics that I've had in my stash for years. This is a variation on the Single Wedding Ring block and it's fun to put together.

I'm off to sew until I have to cook. Quiet Easter this year. Everyone is cruising, vacationing, working. I like quiet especially when it involves sewing and ham. Have a great week!


  1. love your bbq shampoo - that is a hoot. either no one wanted to smell like bbq or else they read all the way to the April Fool's msg.

  2. I'll bet your office loved you on April 1st. Very creative pranks you got there. Love your paper pieced bunnies and the Easter colored blocks at the end. My sister and I need your paper piecing guidance so hoping you will be at April's Saturday Sew Day.


I would love to hear from you. Comments make my day!
