New Project and Banoffee Pie

Spring and ideas "flowering"... I don't know where to start... playing with my Liberty fabrics for a new lap quilt? Maybe... most probably! The best and funniest part of the project : choosing and matching the various prints. Well it's fun, but not so easy (at least or me).
I thought I could try to mix the Liberty fabrics with some of my old leftovers, and make a scrappy Four Patch quilt.

I cut 3" squares and followed the advice of Diane to handle them. Diane has a wonderful blog : 
http://www.butterflythreadsquilting.com. It's one of my favorite blogs, I never miss her posts and always find them interesting. She has valuable tips and tutorials. Most of all, her quilts are fabulous. I highly recommend reading her blog!

Last Monday, receiving my quilting friends, I prepared a Banoffee pie. I must say I am crazy about this pie recently. I discovered it last summer in Rhodes in a pastry shop held by an American woman. Since the I have in mind to make such a pie. I searched various recipes on the web and decided to give it a try. I wanted to take pictures of the finished cake and of the quilting creations of my friends, but my daughter arrived with her baby and I forgot everything! Anyway I have to say that the Banoffee pie was very well appreciated : not a crumb left!

  3. Oh wow, thanks so much for the sweet words Christne! Enjoy your blog so very much as well. Your fabrics are lovely and the pie looks delicious. However, snuggling babies is much more important than taking photos, so you are excused! LOL
