Peaches and Cream Recipe

Making peaches and cream is really easy and simple. It's the perfect sweet treat that utilizes fresh peaches in season.

If you've never made peaches and cream before, you may be a bit intimidated.

How do you know the cream to peach ratio? Do you add sugar? I'll admit, that these were my questions.

 Peaches and cream was not something I remember having growing up. Now, having a peach tree with an excess of peaches, I decided it was time to try it.

I played around with different quantities of cream and sugar and found the perfect combination. Of course, you can just wing it, but this will give you a starting point.

Spools Quilt

I recently put together this spools quilt top. Isn't it so fun? 

This is a FREE shortcut quilt pattern from Fat Quarter Shop.  It's made with 10 inch layer cake squares so it was so quick to sew together. 

I sewed together all of the quilt blocks in one afternoon and evening. It took me another day to lay out the blocks the way that I liked them and sew them all together.

This project is in collaboration with Fat Quarter Shop. They were kind enough to provide the fabric for the quilt.

20+ Log Cabin Quilt Patterns

Log cabin quilts are timeless. Find over 20 log cabin quilt patterns to make your own. I've created a section of free log cabin quilt patterns as well as patterns you can purchase.

Classic log cabin blocks date back to the civil war and are still used widely today. It is said that a black center indicated a safehouse on the underground railroad.

Log cabin blocks are a great way to use up those jelly roll strips you have laying around. (Are you like me and just have to buy them, but don't really have a plan yet to use them?) Strips of fabric are sewn around a square center block. 

Make your own log cabin quilt using one of these patterns.
