beautiful, clever to improve the centre. i have finished all six!! am mad about this project, don't want to stop, but now have to wait for october's. the usual quilter's lament of running out of fabric too. however i am totally frustrated trying to keep up with the postings as 3/4 are about recipes, sickness, etc. i am glad the rest of you can communicate like this and are friends, but wish there was a seperate link just for this topic. i will start to post my blocks soon, i do love looking at what has been done and have saved the photos. sincerely sandra
Shadoh, there is a separate link for posting pictures, this is a discussion group in this link...its kinda our style here, just as the Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt and the Pony Club, both books and patterns by Laura Hird...was our style doing that. We have through floods, hurricane, and our own crisis together on this QB active board, but enjoy others joining us along the way....to share in our friendship and project...to be a good neighbor. Therefore, I post recipes to share with other great cooks on this journey, because I love to cook and quilt and read. I guess if you object you may relate your woes to Honchey as she is the leader of our pack, and we respect her as the leader who decides what appears on this site. Or just use the patterns that Mirabelle has provided on separate links, and post to the photo link provided as well. Each to his own, as the old maid say that kissed the cow...and I grew up with that saying, respecting others with different opinions and ways of thinking...knowing in my journey of life not everyone does respect our individual differences of thinking. That is all right, too.
Caroline ... great center!! Wish I had thunk of that :)
Caroline, that's a gorgeous block. I might add a little circle to my center as well, looks great!
QNS, as always very well said, thanks!

If you come back to this main thread that started it you will find recipes and other fun things. If you go to the thread for the current month (subscribe to it so it's easy to get to) you'll see primarily the blocks being posted as they are completed.
NinaSue as always your words are very profound, yes we have been through a lot in the past 3 to 4 years of chatting. I know I can call each and everyone of your my dear friends
I realize that I am new to this group of friends but have really enjoyed the chatting that goes on here. QuiltingNinaSue, I have tried everyone of the recipes that you have posted and we have loved them all (waiting for more):o
Gramquilter, we always welcome new friends!
Gramquilter, just for you: Something I would be afraid to try:From Welcome Home on my face book:
Thick and Creamy Broccoli Cheddar Soup
6 tablespoon butter
1 small onion, chopped
1/3 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground white pepper
dash ground thyme
1 (13 3/4) ounce can chicken broth
1 cup milk
3 cups bite-size broccoli florets
1 cup whipping cream (heavy cream)
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/8 teaspoon hot sauce (optional)
1 cup shredded sharp white or yellow cheddar Cheese
1/2 cup shredded Havarti Cheese
1/2 cup shredded Swiss Cheese
4 sourdough bread (round loaves)
Melt butter in 3-quart saucepan or Dutch Oven over low heat. Add onion, cook until tender, about 5 min. Whisk in flour, cook until golden, 3-4 min, then gradually whisk in milk until smooth. Add broth, thyme, nutmeg. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to simmer and cook, stirring constantly, until thickened. Stir in broccoli; simmer 10 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in cream, Worcestershire sauce and hot pepper sauce if using. Add cheeses; stir until melted.
Prepare bread bowls: Using knife, cut circle into top of each loaf, leaving 1-inch border around. Remove bread top, hollow out the middle with a fork or your fingers, leaving thick bread shell. Ladle soup into bowls. Sprinkle cheese on top for garnish.
With my luck the soup would leak out of the bread; Alaskan baked ice cream would melt in the oven....guaranteed. Now I might make this in a Dutch oven and serve it in soup bowls with bread on the side. With DH getting all his teeth pulled, I am serving a lot of Philly meat from Schwan's Ice Cream truck, and adding cheese to it and putting it in a wheat hoagie....fills him up and he can eat it...until he loses his last tooth. We have been Schwan customers for years, regardless of where we have lived. They advertise on this site and deliver to your home or office.
