February Edition of the Christmas Quilt Along Second Post

For me, this is one of those days that isn't going smoothly.  I got up late and wanted to join in the qal so I hurried to get something going.  I have made my little block, but it looks a little wonky.  That's okay, because when it's quilted it will be beautiful!  I don't intend to use it as an ornament, but to incorporate it into a mug rug or pin keep, something like that.

I'll be making another block reversing the colors.   I also have some cross stitch quilt block patterns that I want to make.  And I received the pattern for the first star block so I will enjoy putting it together this week. 

I'm stopping now for tea and to visit the other blogs.  I do have a recipe to share.  These are ricotta cookies.  I made them to use up ricotta, but they are so good, I'll be making them again.  They are not very sweet, but they can be iced, frosted, whatever you would like.  The link for the recipe is http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Ricotta-Cheese-Cookies/Detail.aspx

One more thing I want to mention is that Linda from Stray Stitches http://straystitches1.blogspot.com/  is having a Think Spring giveaway of some lovely floral fabric in joyful colors.  The winner will be posted on February 21.   You'll enjoy Linda's blog posts so be sure to visit.

God Bless You.

I think your block looks great. It'll be super in the reverse colours too. And those cookies look really wonderful.

Wonky or not, I like the block. It could be used for Christmas or Valentine's Day with all the red & white.

Apart from watching your project... I'll be trying your recipe. Thanks! :)

A cookie that is a little less sweet. That might be just the thing for me. Would you believe when I frost sugar cookies if I end up eating any I pick the frosting off? They're just to sweet. I think your reverse color block will be striking.
