Snow Ice Cream Recipe

Sure, we don't have any snow now, but it will be here before you know it.

This is a fun recipe to make with the kids and grand kids--ah, who am I kidding--even just for yourself!

2 eggs, lightly beaten

½ cup sweetened condensed milk

4 tbsp. sugar

1 tbsp. vanilla

Combine all ingredients and beat well. Collect pail of freshly fallen snow. Beat mixture into snow. For an extra special treat, drizzle blueberry, maple or strawberry syrup over the top—enjoy~!

Quiltville "Easy Street" Part II

 For those of you following this mystery quilt, here is part two!

We needed to make 120+ flying geese--leader and ender style!

Here is my pile of completed geese, ready for cutting apart and pressing....

And all nicely packed in a box with part one...

And Bonnie gave us some homework to do for the next step of the quilt--I can also check that off. I wonder what Friday will bring?

Maine Modern Quilters-Next Meeting December 8th

The following is an article submitted by Betsy Cannan:

The third meeting/gathering of the Maine Modern Quilters will be held in Augusta at Buker Community Center on Dec. 8, 2012 from 2-4 P.M. at 22 Armory St., room 9. (across from the Armory and near Burger King)  Quilters of all ages and skill levels are welcome!  Come on in!!!! Carolee Withee and Jane Hann-Morey will present on methods of inserting circles into quilts.  For those interested we will start the “Rip and Tear” modern quilt project challenge.

In our previous meetings we have learned from presenters, shared wonderful Show and Tells, books, magazines and techniques, and openly discussed our individual needs of being in this group. 

We are now on the international registry of The Modern Quilt Guild, have a website and a face book page.

 Below are pictures from our last meetings:


Betsy Dorr, owner of Quiltessentials, presented on “Color and the color wheel” and demonstrated the use of the new color grid which makes our life easier when selecting fabrics for our projects.

 Janet Clement displayed her beautiful modern quilt and shared the intrigue behind the color scheme.

 Beth Maitland presented on the “Floating Tumbling Block”, and other small projects she has done, emphasizing the quilting of negative space.

Tammy Johnson displays one of her four beautiful modern quilts with expressive quilting in the negative space.

The following meeting will be held Jan. 9, 2013 location TBA.
