Last weekend Carrie delivered 4 charity quilts to me that she had quilted.  I've been working on binding for them.  It's all made.  Hopefully tomorrow I can sew it on.  I will machine bind these.  I need the practice.  Judy, let your friend know that the ox is still urging me on to complete projects.  Some of them don't need much but I just have to go ahead and do it.

Yesterday I went to a small quilt show at the Gilbert Museum with 3 other quilters from the church group.  At that time I delivered 5 quilts that I had already completed.  I have previously posted them here so won't again.  It was nice to get them out of the house.

Also Tuesday, Bob assembled a cubby hole piece of furniture from Ikea for my sewing room.  It sits where my long arm used to be but doesn't take as much space.  I've been working on filling it with what was in boxes stored under the long arm.

I decided I wanted to use up some of the misc. noodles in my scrap bin. The colors are a door prize from an AZ retreat I don't remember how many years ago.  The black/whites are some more of the ones given me by a cousin  - her mother has a thing about cutting noodles and then donating them to her.  The cousin doesn't like black/white quilts much but I do so she passed them on to me.  This is the 2nd quilt with them and I still have enough for a 3rd.  The block is from Kim Bracket's book Scrap basket surprises, I think this is the 4th or 5th quilt I've made from that author's books.  I feel like I'm doing a jigsaw puzzle - fun to see how it's coming out.

I'd say you certainly got your money's worth from that book!   And what a great use of serendipity fabric.  :-)

Oh wow!  I like that pattern!  I really like black and whites too.  I' glad I figured out how to save these photos tot Pintrest.

Black and white with bright color is always so cheerful. Love the stars.

Dee, I like that block!  I wonder if I hav3 that book, it sounds familiar. I may have to take a look, but I need to finish up some things sitting around,

I have two of her books, have used them both frequently. She puts simple blocks together to make interesting secondary patterns, very clear illustrations.

How about using rice as the base of a casserole dish, some chicken or cooked ground beef, some mixed veggies, a canned soup of choice like cream of mushroom, cheese of choice on top. I used to make lots of casserole type dishes in batches and freeze. I would think chicken pot pie would be fairly simple if you made some. Make or buy crust and fill with chicken veggies and homemade sauce or again a canned thick soup of some kind.

Another option Shepards pie, mashed potatoes layered with cooked ground beef veggies.

I thought I put my post on your cooking question for your parents.
