Countdown for Pillow Talk

Can you believe only 3 more designers left?  I’ve loved going to each blog and reading about all the designers and I hope you have too!

Today is Sandy Klop of American Jane fame.  I’ve known Sandy for years and yes, she’s as sweet as she looks!  She has the cutest house you’ve ever seen and it’s decorated in American Jane style.  She had two couches upholstered in one of the Moda fabrics that she designed and they are adorable!  I’m keeping my fingers crossed that she shows you part of her home. If not maybe we could all ask for a tour…she’s opened her home before for a quilter’s tour.

If anyone could make me want to go “Primitive” it would be Lisa from Primitive Gatherings.  I love her designs and now she has wonderful fabric she’s designed to go with them.  I’m excited about her next line of tiny little background prints. I’m always looking for backgrounds and these are going to be the perfect stash builder!

New to blogging and another applique lover is Edyta Sitar from Laundry Basket Quilts.  She combines batiks and florals to create the most beautiful quilts!  The story she shared with us at market about how she came to love quilting was wonderful!

Today is bread baking day or should I say bread baking hour.  This no knead bread takes less than 10 minutes to prepare (dump the ingredients in a container, mix well and refrigerate) and it’s such a treat!  Here’s how it looks fresh out of the oven…

If I can do this you can too!  Here’s the recipe and “how to”  from King Arthur Flour.  Try it and let me know if you love it as much as we do!  It’s great with soup, for sandwiches, toast….yummy bread!

Speaking of cooking if you’re lucky enough to own an Ipad, check out the new Martha Stewart magazine app!  You can “watch” the magazine come to life on your Ipad!  It’s filled with videos, recipes and so much more.  You can  get a preview by clicking on the arrows and watching the videos.  Amazing!

Have a great weekend everyone.  Enjoy the last of Pillow Talk from Moda!

Hugs,

Anne

  • Linda - Thanks for the bread baking link! I think this will be a fun Saturday thing to do for my “I’m bored now…what do I do?” daughter!ReplyCancel

  • Jean - I’m on a hunt for King Arthur flour now. I’m going to try this. Last time I made bread that wasn’t made in a bread maker it turned out like a brick. 10,000 more and I could have built the cutest little garden cottage!! My only question is how do you get the bucket in the fridge?ReplyCancel

  • Barb - Thanks again for letting us all know about the Moda Pillow Talk. It really has been so much fun to ‘discover’ these amazing designers! I am so impressed and amazed at all of the creativity out there! And everyone of you is so incredibly generous! Moda must be a very special place – they really seem to have the best people!

    Love the bread idea too. I love King Arthur Flour – and they have a great website/blog.

    Happy Weekend (and week, too!)ReplyCancel

  • Vickie E - Anne, I use King Arthur flour as well. Unsifted, unbromated…I have been using the recipes from the book Artisan Bread in 5 minutes a day…it’s awesome.ReplyCancel

  • Susan - I love King Arthur flour. I use it for my baking and I sometimes use their mixes for biscotti and dog biscuits.
    Anne, do you bake by volume or weight? I usually use volume, but am considering trying weight. I’m going to print out the recipe- my husband loves homemade bread. Someitmes I use my machine and sometimes the conventional it depends on the recipe.
