AAQI: Quilt Arrives & BlogHop

The most marvelous little quilt came in the mail the other day. I was the lucky one to bid and buy "Schizostylis Coccinea Major," the fabulous quilt handmade by Elly Dunbar of Scotland. Elly's work is absolutely incredible and so is her original design which is based on a flower in her garden. I just love it. Thank you for designing, creating, and donating this wonderful quilt, Elly. I will treasure it always.

Remember, the BlogHop is still running and doesn't close until September 3rd. A winner will be choosen on Sept 4th. Please see the original post HERE. You MUST put your comment on the original post to enter the drawing. Good luck everyone.

Some Menu Fun is below.  Today I hope to attach another border on my QAYG Crazy9Patch. . .so, until next time, let's go stitch something!

Quilty Hugs,

MENU FUN:
SuperVeggy Marinara Sauce
Last night I thought: If I can make Veggie Soup, why not just saute a bunch of veggies and make an enhanced Marinara Sauce... why not, indeed. Add some garlic and oregano, organic tomatoes and serve over organic whole wheat pasta. Delish!

A darling little quilt! And even more special that is traveled so far to arrive at your house! And you are one special gal to have purchased it and contributed to my favorite cause! Thank you for that Cyn! Love all your quilts and fun.
