Risking frostbitten toes this morning, I managed to take a photo of my finished Penny Patchwork quilt top.
The recipe is from the Penny Patch Quilt-along at Stitched in Color. Because of the scrappy nature of my version, it looks a little crazy. But my family loves it. There was a chorus of "oooh... pretty!" from my children, and my husband declared it his favorite of all the quilts I've made so far.
And speaking of recipes, I made this little gem yesterday.
I saw a picture of a chocolate-glazed banana cake at JulieLou, and Julie was kind enough to share with me the recipe she used. The only modification I made to was to replace 1/4 cup of white sugar with brown sugar to make it a little richer. I would have added walnuts, but the littlest one has a nut allergy. I used this recipe for chocolate glaze, but replaced the water with milk, then added a couple of ounces of melted milk chocolate. Divine.
