Today the mini-group continued to design and work on our opportunity quilt for the guild's show. The inner applique border is done---such pop! We debated what we wanted for our outer border and decided we'd like piano keys using scraps from all our twenty-five friendship stars to tie things together. So rotary cutters were flyin' as we cut random 6 1/2 inch strips and stitched them into rows. Many hands make light work, as they say. Hopefully we will have the rest of the borders done and on the quilt in a week or so. Then we have a wonderful long-armer in our group who has volunteered to machine quilt it for us. Hooray. Then bind and label and onto a local shop for a while to sell some tickets.
The chocolate zucchini cake was well-received. I wish I had not baked it quite as long as directions said as I think it would have been a little bit moister. However, the yummy white chocolate raspberry truffle ice cream helped a lot!!! Several have asked for the recipe. There is a link to the blog where I found it on my previous post. Go see how that incredible artist decorated the cake top. I didn't attempt that LOL.
