I hope you’ve been enjoying the projects from the Island Batik Ambassadors.
My fabrics were part of the fiery Jewels and Gems collection.
Need a quick hostess gift? How about a fun table topper and hot pads using appliques from one of my favorite designers, Sindy Rodenmayer of Fat Cat Patterns. Her designs are adorable♥
♥Chubby Chick Table Topper♥
Pattern used: Chubby Chick by Fat Cat Patterns
Center panel: Cut (1) 12 1/2” x 12 1/2” block
Side panels: Cut (12) 2 1/2” x 4 1/2” blocks
Backing: Cut as needed - finished size is 12” x 20”
♥Eggbert Pot Holders♥
Pattern used: Eggbert by Fat Cat Patterns
Center panel: Cut (1) 9” x 9”
Backing: Cut (1) 9” x 9”
NOTE - Eggbert is designed for a 12” block. You will have to shrink him down to fit on the 9” block. On my computer the option is part of the printer dialog box. I printed the templates at 75%.
♥One of my favorite summer recipes♥
2 cups broccoli florets
1/2 cup sliced carrots
8 ounces Tortellini
1 cup ham cubed
1 cup green bell pepper cubed
1 cup red bell pepper cubed
1/2 cup sweet onion cubed
1/4 cup zesty fat free Italian dressing
Cook Tortellini and broccoli (I don’t like raw broccoli). In a separate pan cook ham and onions. Place all ingredients in a big bowl and toss with Italian dressing.
Serves 4 ~ Enjoy!
