First Finished Projects of the New Year!!

Hi all!!! Happy New year! It is a year of fresh starts and in this case fresh finishes.

This is the ninja baby quilt I made for a great-nephew due in March.

I finished a baby quilt I started after Christmas. It is made with a Fisher-Price charm pack and a rainbow solid charm pack. The pattern is Ninja from a great book called Just One Charm Pack Quilts by Cheryl Brickey. I modified it a bit. I left off the piano key borders on the top and bottom. It was super easy to piece. I quilted it on my machine by writing the word Love and a heart shape across it several times using a multicolor variegated thread. I used some scrap jelly roll strips for a scrappy binding. It is very colorful and cheery. Just perfect for a little baby boy.

I also finished my husbands’ quilt and sent it off to the quilters. I’ll post pictures of it once it is finished.

Now on to cooking. I am trying to incorporate more healthy foods into our diet including fish and more veggies. I love the two cookbooks by Cassy Joy Garcia called Cook Once Eat All Week and Cook Once DInner Fix. They are good for people with limited time but want to eat healthy, delicious foods.

I made a tasty salmon dish from the newest book Cook One Dinner Fix. It was a baked salmon and potatoes. Everyone ate it. Even my fish-hating daughter.

Salmon and potatoes with a dill aoli.
