An abundance of food with my quilts, and sometimes a quick and easy recipe!

Photos of breakfast, lunch, and dinner on my quilts. Including photos from my container garden. Sometimes, I will post a quick and easy recipe. This is my "just for fun" BLOG ! I see so many things that inspire my quilting!

The Colors in My Kitchen

A cool coffee mug with no markings on the bottom.  I paid less than a dollar for it.  Looks like a quilt to me!

 I only have two dinner plates, but that's ok it's just the two of us. I have some good old correlle dishes for everyday.

The silverware is Oneida and Shelly is the pattern. I got it as a wedding gift in 1979.  I only have 6 place settings and a few serving pieces.
Nice big serving plate. Paid one dollar for it.
The dessert plate is my favorite find.  I love placing a couple cookies on it!

One soup bowl and small plate. I love the colorful design.

 All of the dishes are thrift store finds, except the Corningware casserole. I purchased the casserole dish in 1979 and still use a quite often. It is the perfect size for green bean casserole.

  Just a cute little soup mug.

 A friend painted on an old pitcher and old glasses for me a couple years ago.  Love how she made it into a quilt.

The table topper quilt was created using "up cycled" denim from a beaded denim shirt. 
Enjoy your day!
