I have spent the afternoon browsing the Black Friday sales and spent more than I should at Fat Quarter shop! It's dreary and wet here in Texas, so we did not get out of the house to attend the big sales. I have already bought all of my gifts for the family and they are wrapped and ready to go! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

We have a super cute new flea market a few miles away and one Friday night I just happened to be on Facebook when they posted the picture of this cabinet. They are only open during the weekends, so I was up at 5 am, pacing, waiting, watching the clock, drove to the shop prepared to fight off anyone that made it in the door before I did. They just happened to be open 30 minutes early, so I was in the store, bought the cabinet and on my way home within the hour! This Hoosier is so wonderful, it still has the original parts including the flour sifter and spice racks. The Slag glass is perfect and the finish untouched. The enamel top has a couple of scratches, but nothing big. I was thrilled to pieces that I finally found one after all this time. In fact, I'm going to make homemade pie crust on this enamel top with my cutest little country apron on! Can you see the little red sign above it? That is our motto around here "We Love You Like Biscuits and Gravy" Yes maam we do!

I save every bit of scrap when I cut into a bundle of fabric and can't seem to part with any of it. After watching Lori Holt's method of organizing her scraps, I was converted! I now keep a basket of my smaller scraps beside my cutting table and spend a few hours a month cutting them into sizes that I frequently use.
I have a template to cut Dresdens as small as one inch, but more frequently I use the 2 1/2 inch to turn my smaller scraps into a scrappy quilt that I absolutely love!
I spend several hours a week at the machine when I come home at night. Whenever I have a few minutes, its easy to sew a couple and place in my basket to applique later. I have precut layer cakes of Moda white #98 that I buy from Fat Quarter shop. They are so portable and I keep a small kit with me everywhere I go. Its an easy way to turn all those small bits and crumbs of fabric into a beautiful quilt!

I am blessed to have a talented daughter, who is a florist. I am tempted to send this over to her, maybe she will make one for me! My cousin posted this on Facebook, so I do not know where it originated from. Would love to have a great big red barn door to hang this on!
Have a great day

It's looking a lot like Christmas here at Cute As Pie Cottage! I have always wanted to make a red and white quilt for the holidays and love this beautiful Dresden Plate pattern. In fact, this is my sixth quilt using Dresden's this year. There is something so calming about hand applique! Its a very portable quilt block that you can work on just about anywhere! I travel frequently and carry a little sewing bag with me. If I am waiting in the airport I can whip up a few blocks to occupy my time. There is always someone who stops to ask what I'm working on, so I can share my love for quilting and listen to some wonderful stories that people share of their quilty memories.
Have a wonderful week!
