Modern Baby Quilt

 Having a new grandson calls for making a new quilt. Since I no longer work as a long-arm machine quilter, I had no long-arm to quilt with, so I took on the Bernina. It was so fun! This is how it turned out.

 He also needed a car seat cover. Chose minkie and polka dot cotton. The green and grey are the exact colors of his car seat!

Banana Bread

I had 4 bananas that were beyond eating fresh. Out comes the recipes and I usually go to Cathy's recipe, (my darling sister-in-law).

Here it is:
Banana Bread
Cream 1 cup butter and 2 cups sugar.
4 eggs, one at a time
2 cups mashed bananas
1 tsp vanilla
Stir 4 cups flour, 2 tsp soda, and 1 tsp salt together. Mix into the creamed mixture.
Pour into 2 - 4 greased bread pans.
Bake @ 350 degrees 40 to 60 minutes. Check with a toothpick.

Moist and flavorful. Enjoy!
