In working on the pieced inner border I was drawn back into my love of miniature quilts. There was a time I couldn't throw away any cut off corner because there was potential there for a miniature quilt. Miniature Quilt Magazine created 2 patterns from my featured quilts...ahhh...those were fun times when I could make a quilt, layer and quilt it all in a couple of hours! LOL I found myself starting to save the corners again...but...to keep from drowning in corners I decided I would only save the corners from my own quilts. After making the blocks for my Green Pieces inner border I had enough left over to add to my "goose jelly" jar and to sew a whole set of half square triangles.
Tonight is First Friday at QuiltWorks and the Fabric Stalkers are the featured group quilts. Which means tomorrow will be a slide show!!! In the mean time enjoy the recipe for the margarita I chose to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with!
Serves 2-3 or double the recipe to serve 4-6.
6 ounces tequila
3 ounces Midori liqueur
5 ounces sweet and sour mix
Note: Those are the "standard" ingredients but I use half sweet and sour mix and half Rose's lime juice with a dash of sugar.
To serve Blended: Place all ingredients in a blender, toss in a cup of ice and blend for 30-40 seconds.
To serve on the rocks: Combine ingredients in a pitcher and pour over ice in a stemmed cocktail glass.
