Yep, They’re Still Pretty!

All winter I’ve roasted local organic beets about once a week.

You can see earlier posts on tricks to oven roast and peel while warm.

I still get so much pleasure out of seeing the jewel-like mixture in a bowl.

Beets are a powerhouse veggie and are definitely all about “eating the rainbow.”

How’s this for a rainbow lunch?

Turkey Tracks: Sunday Morning Quilt

Sunday Morning Quilt

I love this yummy quilt.

The pattern came from SUNDAY MORNING QUILTS (Amanda Jean Nyberg, Cheryl Arkison) and was designed by Cheryl Arkison.  I used all Cotton+Steel fabrics, except for the solid binding.  And I made it as a “cool” companion to the “warm” quilt (see below) using the herringbone pattern Victoria Findlay Wolfe designed (MODERN QUILT MAGIC).

I quilted with the “Simple Feathers” pantograph designed by Anne Bright.  And I used a soft smoky seafoam green thread that disappeared into the backing, from Signature threads.

 

Here’s the “warm” quilt, to remind:  “Bee Warm.”

 

Both of these quilts have lived in my mind for some years now.  It’s so good to have them be really here.

The Cotton+Steel designers have left their original home and are now “Ruby Star Society.”  Their first collection from their new home arrives this summer.  I just signed up for the Pink Castle “Ruby Star Society” fat quarter club which will start in July.  Yeah!!!
