The above quilt top is what I did with my crumb blocks...I still need to add some kind of border but for right now I am glad to have it this far along. I like it most of the time but sometimes I look at it and am not so sure. I will eventually machine quilt it I think. Since I got my Juki, I love machine quilting.
This is out youngest daughter, Sarah and Otto. And below is her husband, Jeremy talking to Otto. My daughter turned 26 Thursday, but didn't want to have her birthday dinner till today. Her request was for a fried chicken meal, followed by what we call a pudding cake. The bottom layer is a crust made from 1 1/2 cups of flour and 1 1/2 stick of soft butter. That is mixed and flattened out in a 9 x 13 pan and baked for 20 minutes at 350 degrees.
The second layer is 12 oz. of cream cheese softened to room temperature, mixed with 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar and 6 oz. coolwhip. Mix these ingredients well and spread on the first layer once it is totally cool.
The third layer is for us a layer of either lemon or chocolate pudding...2 boxes of instant pudding of whatever your flavor choice, mixed with 4 cups of milk. Pour over the cream cheese layer. I always let it set in the fridge a little while and then go back and spread a layer of coolwhip on like frosting. This has been both my daughter's and my choice of birthday dessert for at least 20 years! I make it every Christmas and Thanksgiving, and their birthdays. And maybe a time or two in between. I know it has other names but this is just what we call it. And there are other measurements given but this seems to fill the pan the best.

Home made chicken meal? And pudding cake? Hum, makes me think ...

Today I'm having cooked cod fish with potatoes and vegetables cooked on steam and a home made co chocolate cake ... if you visit, you'll see why ...

Nice knowing you daughter, husband and dog.
And your quilt seems great.

As pretty as your daughter is my eyes fell on Otto... he's a stunner, my son Sam said that is is like the kind of dog he wants... is it a Staffordshire/Pittbull cross? what ever it is he a stunner.

A belated happy birthday to Sarah and she is the princess of the post

What a lovely quilt Rose. I really should blog about some I have that my mother-in-law and my grandmother made. I did small wall hangings when my kids were babes. I don't have the patience for what it takes - I envy you.
Your daughter is beautiful! My daughter just turned 26 too this past December.
I'm going to try that cake - it sounds delicious!
