Virtual Cookie Exchange

Today is my day on the Virtual Cookie Exchange blog hop, hosted by Carol at www.justletmequilt.blogspot.com  Not only will I share a cookie recipe with you, but I will share a quilt I am working on.


  Now, this quilt has a fun name.   It is called Cookie Jar Treats, which is the name of the fabric.  This pattern was a free pattern for the fabric line by Wilmington.  Unfortunately the pattern is no longer available.  I used fabrics I had in my stash.  My friend had made the quilt and was able to lead me to where to find the pattern.




This quilt has been fun to do.  In the snowball blocks I did some Holly leaves.   I followed tutorials by Lori @ www.lorikennedyquilts.com, when you visit her site, go to the menu and look for motifs.   I have also watched some you tube videos by Tracy at https://www.whirlsnswirlsquilting.ca/.  If you go to you tube and types in whirls and swirls quilting holly leaves it takes you to a couple of videos she has done.





For my 9 patches I am following along with a free motion challenge quilting along.    by Angela Walters at www.quiltingismytherapy.com





In the green blocks I am doing a diamond shape and the other blocks I am doing wishbone.

The threads I am using are glide threads.  They are a 40 weight poly.  In the snowball blocks I used white and on the 9 patches and borders is cool grey 3. 


I would like to say I am really awesome and made some cookies and got pictures of them.  However, that did not happen.  But it is a recipe my hubby likes so one day soon I will make him some.   The cookies I am sharing the recipe for is Snickerdoodles.   My hubby likes when I divide the dough and make some red and green ones.

So here is the recipe:
Snickerdoodles
2 3/4 cup flour
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup shortening
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs

This is mixed together separately
2 tsp cinnamon
2 Tablespoons sugar

Cream together shortening, sugar and eggs; add flour, soda, cream of tartar and salt and mix well.   Roll into balls the size of walnuts.  Then roll balls in cinnamon and sugar mixture.  Place on greased cookie sheet.  Bake at 400 for 12 minutes.


Please visit these other bloggers.   They are sharing lots of fun things.

This month I am participating in the 31st day blog writing challenge.   I hope you will join me.

I will be back next month with the Blue and white challenge.  One of my goals for next year is to make sure when I share for blog hops that my projects are completely done.  I will have to think of some fun things to do.

  7. Hi Kathy! Your quilt looks wonderful as does your quilting. I am following along with Angela's latest FMQ challenge, although not physically. I love what you did in the 9-patch blocks. I have a quilt top that I needed ideas for and she has certainly helped. It a combination of 9-patch and flying geese, so with this week's ideas I am ready to get started. Thanks for sharing! ~smile~ Roseanne
