Weekend sewing

I wasn't very productive over the weekend but I did manage to get two blocks done.  Yes, that's right.  Only two.  Those two blocks were easy ones to do too.  LOL.

I'm in a facebook group called "Creative Rectangle Quilting".  It a group that is slanting things towards Rectangle.  We'll do other blocks and stuff but we started a couple of BOMs.  One is more for beginners and the other for more Intermediates.  This weekend I did two of the beginner blocks.

This first one is called Basket Weave.  These are 12 1/2" blocks.  The strips in this one is 1.5".

The second beginner block is called Woven.  The yellow star  fabric in this second block is some of the fabric that came from Ghana.  The amount I had is more along a fat 1/8th.

In between doing the two blocks I also tried a new recipe.  It's broccoli rice cups.

I think I should have cooked them a little longer because they didn't keep their shape well after taking them out of the cup cake tin.  They did taste good so I'll try again and cook longer next time.  If it still doesn't work out to well I'll go and just make the recipe in an oven proof pan.

Everybody have a good day.  I'm back to searching patterns with rectangles in it.  Around the Holidays we'll be doing some mug rugs.  :)  Perhaps I should search some applique patterns since there some people who want to try that.

Before being in this group I never realized how many patterns have rectangles in them.  That's a good thing.  :)
