Today is the Trunk Show Series with AccuQuilt called, you guessed it, Freindsgiving Frenzy.
This is an affiliate post. Some of the dies in this post were provided to me from AccuQuilt.
To register and watch this event click here. If you can’t watch it live you can always go to their facebook page to watch it later. I’ve been watching their weekly live shows and sometimes I learn something new. They are always educational and enjoyable. There is always a die give away or two and sometimes there are fabric giveaways.
You will also learn of new patterns added to their site to pair with dies.
AcucQuilt asked me to share a short video of my GO! to die along with a recipe. I couldn’t choose just one die because I love Churn Dash (9″ for GO! and 12″ for GO! Big) and Chimney Sweep for the same reasons. They are both easy, beginner friendly, they both provide a great design as a stand alone or paired with others, and they’re quick.
In less than an hour I had 4 of these blocks cut and pieced.
In about 3 hours I had the quilt top complete including the Train and Pickup shapes. It’s still hanging awaiting binding. As some of you know I have been working on my sewing room and that finish will come before binding. Now I need a little boy who will enjoy this.
So I hope you will register and join in the fun today at 12pm central. See you there!
3 ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies
Oooh, I almost forgot.
My go to for a quick recipe is a yummy Peanut Butter Cookie. Best of all there are only 3 ingredients that we all have on hand.
Preheat oven to 350.
1 cup of creamy peanut butter
1 cup of white sugar. (you can substitute with brown sugar)
You have two options, 10″ prepared* cast iron skillet or cookie sheets for 2 dozen cookies.
Mix all ingredients with mixer and scoop into 10″ prepared cast iron skillet* and smooth evenly with fingers. Be careful no to touch the sides of the skillet.
Alt: scoop by tablespoons onto cookie sheets.
Press with fork.
Bake 7-10 minutes.
**Prepared cast iron skillet.
Heat empty skillet on stove top until drop of water sizzles in bottom of pan. Remove from heat.
Drizzle a few drops of vegetable oil in skillet, use a paper towel to spread the oil rubbing well, coat the bottom and sides. Rub oil in well, you don’t want the oil to puddle, you just want a clean shiny surface. Pan will be hot so be sure to use a hot pad for transferring pan.
