Two days to myself! The boys are off fishing in the Outer Banks and had a very successful day yesterday. We are going to be eating lots of delicious tuna this weekend. While they were away I got on with my own chores (yardwork, laundry) and quilting. I got two veterans quilts quilted and one of them was the one that I made. I'll get the binding done this weekend or next week.
I've made several of these 4-patch scrappy quilts and the wavy crosshatch is the perfect quilting motif and it's super fast.
The second one was made by Peg and I had fun free-motion quilting on this one.
I used continuous curves and wavy lines to make a continuous pattern across the blocks.
I think it makes a nice pattern on the back.
I also baked more bread! This is the loaf bread recipe and I made this one to take to Mom today. We have our dentist appointments this morning so I thought I'd bring her a nice loaf of home baked bread. I made one of this recipe Tuesday so I already know that it's good. I ate 3/4 of it in 2 days! I need to take a break from bread eating for a few days.

That is the trouble with baking bread; we want to eat it! I love it warm with butter but also love home baked bread toasted, so much better than commercial bakery bread.

That bread looks wonderful! There is nothing better than the smell of home baked bread! The quilts turned out great.

How wonderful that you found a bread recipe that is good and has the ingredients that you can eat! That is a super WIN!
