I’m honored to share my years of experience working and teaching in quilt shops, teaching nationally, talking with shop owners, and working with Generation Q Magazine in each one of these talks. Join me at International Quilt Market. Check out Ebony Love, Cheryl Sleboda, Tracy Mooney, Maddie Kertay, Heather Kubiak, Pepper Cory and so many other presenters in ways that we can grow our businesses. Cheryl is offering business consultations with special Quilt Market pricing.
Reminder: Ebony Love is nearing the end of the Kickstarter Campaign to make new Sizzix dies for cutting some amazing quilts. Anything from sharing the post to $1.00 on up is a great show of support. Kickstarter campaigns are All or Nothing Events. If she meets the goal, she gets the money to make the dies, if not she doesn’t the opportunity to do this. Think of this as buying stock in a company for their growth and development.
Bonus! I’ll be staying through early Friday morning of Quilt Festival. I’ll be in the Pinwheels booth with Maria Tamaoka. She sells Daiwabo and Oakschott Cotton. Hooo baby let’s pet some fabric.
I made this deliciousness yesterday: Caramel-Bacon Apple Pie
2 crust pie crust (medium flake: a mixture of butter and shortening for the fat rocks it) I use the King Arthur Flour Recipe and add cider vinegar to the water.
1/2 c white sugar
1/2 c brown sugar
6 T butter
1/4 c water
2 t Cinnamon
8 strips precooked crispy bacon chopped up
Cook this in a skillet til it boils on medium heat. Reduce heat and let simmer for 10 more minutes. Set aside to cool
preheat oven to 400
a whole bunch of apples (4 – 6 cups)
slice or chop ’em your favorite way and place in a honkin’ big bowl
once the caramel mixture is coolish, pour over the apples to coat them completely
roll out bottom layer of pie crust layer in pie plate
dump the apples in crust
add apple mixture
roll out top crust
place over top, trim and pinch to seal the edges.
put pie plate on baking sheet and place in oven
reduce heat to 350
