  • Binding - multi coloured shot stripes from Kaffe Fasset, so pleased with my seam/stripe  aligning, now just the hand sewing down of it to do on my Scrappy Sampler quilt.
  • Reading:  My Name is Resolute by Nancy Turner.  A  novel, which I really enjoyed, set in America during the mid  to late 1700's. 
Have a fabulous week.


  1. Oh goodness, lots of progress on your scrappy sampler quilt Julie!

  2. Now that cake looks so delicious, I have never tried cake with beetroot in it before.

    1. It is not too different from using carrot or zucchini in cakes, gives it a slightly earthier taste. I often make a chocolate beetroot cake too, here's a link:

  3. A very "moreish" looking cake there Julie. Love your KF fabric, think I have some of that in my stripes basket - must go and look it out.

  4. I love binding that is striped. And it's always so exciting to get to the almost finished stage!

  5. The cake looks gorgeous, the quilt looks gorgeous, a totally gorgeous post!

  6. The cake looks yum (and sounds interesting ;-) and your binding fabric is perfect. Are you enjoying that book? These is my Words by the same author is one of my favorite books. I need to re-read it; its been a couple of years....

  7. You sure get through the books Julie! I'm lucky to read ten pages a night before sleep calls! Looking forward to seeing the Scrappy Sampler finished- great binding!

  8. Yummy, that cake looks so good!
    Happy New Week,

  9. That cake sounds good! Great pictures of your binding! Thanks for the book suggestion.
