Red, White and Blue


We've been having a red, white and blue quilt show on my Small Quilt Lovers Facebook page this weekend. Take a peek if you're a member of the group. If not, join us here  for the fun and some pretty pictures -














Have a good Memorial Day weekend and take a moment to remember what the holiday is all about. Let freedom ring.




We're preparing for a family barbeque today. Glad the rain finally stopped after a storm last night. Looks like a sunny day for us. Keep your fingers crossed.


Orzo spinach salad with light balsamic dressing is on the menu. Very yummy - you should try it.

Hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day picnic!
All your RWB quilts are so beautiful!
I'm really enjoying seeing all the RWB eye candy on FB - makes me want to make a few more Americana quilts :))

Yes, I'd like the recipe, too. Panera Bread is a restaurant in our area and sometimes during the summer they have Lemon Orzo Chicken soup and it's delicious. I love the red/white/blue wuilts but never think of them as color combinations prior to the holidays so now I've put them on my list. Thanks.

This has been fun Kathy, but red white and blue are my personal favorites! Could you tell me what the plant with the purple flowers is? So pretty!

What's not to love with R/W/B? And with your beautiful garden too!

Spinach orzo salad - Buy a bag of baby spinach. Chop into small pieces. Cook orzo (I use about a third of a box). Add cherry tomatoes or chopped red pepper. Toss with balsamic dressing.

Instead of this dressing sometimes I will make my own - 2 T of oil, 1 T of teriyaki sauce, a sprinkle of garlic powder, 1 tsp of vinegar. This gives a nice flavor if you do not like overpowering the salad with dressing. Add a little more if needed since the pasta will soak it up a bit.

The purple flowers are Johnson's Blue geranium, one of my favorite garden perennials. Part shade.
