The first thing that I would like to do is give you your free project. I have decided to use my Fit to be Quarter ruler to make this adorable little quilt. Here is a picture of the quilt:
I trimmed the 1/4 square triangles using the Fit to be Quarter ruler and they came out so perfect. The unfinished size is 2" so they are nice and tiny. It's a fun little quilt to make as a framed quilt, table topper or candle mat. I am also going to work on making it larger. I have the instructions for trimming the 1/4 square triangles on my website. Here is the link: http://www.opengatequilts.com/howtovideo.html Here is the instructions for the mini quilt:
We have also decided to provide you with either a favorite summer time drink or dessert. Knowing me, you know that I would pick a dessert. I decided to give you a unconventional cheesecake recipe. It uses Jell-o an Dream Whip. It is so light and fluffy and very yummy! It reminds me of summer.
One of my favorite things to do on 4th of July is to hang out with my gang. I'm not that into fireworks so the thought of going downtown to view them doesn't have much appeal. I love to sew all day, have a BBQ in the evening and spend time at home. What is your favorite thing to do on the 4th of July or your summer holiday? Leave a comment on your favorite thing to do and I will enter your name into the drawing to win a Fit to be Quarter ruler and a kit for the Quarter Square Triangle Mini Quilt. Comment from now until Thursday night and I will announce the winner Friday morning.
Thanks everyone for stopping by and don't forget to check out Lisa and Sherri's blog tomorrow!
