croutons

crutons

Crutons are simple, easy and cheap to make at home. A couple tablespoons of oil, pressed garlic, salt and pepper are in a big bowl. Take 4-5 slices leftover sandwich bread and slice into cubes. Toss the cubes in the oil until well coated. Bake on a baking sheet (350 degrees) for about 15-20 minutes, or until brown. So good!

twin needle quilting

Twin needle quilting is not traditional, but it looks great! I think it adds a professional level to the front. On the back, the bobbin creates a zigzag effect, which some don’t like. For my modern quilt with a (boring) solid background, I appreciate the texture it adds.
