T-Shirt Quilt -- Friday Finish

I finished this t-shirt quilt.  A customer sewed the pelon-backed t-shirt blocks together.  I quilted it and did the binding.  She requested Circle Lord Swirls for the quilting.  She also sent fleece fabric for the backing.  This made a very heavy, yet super soft quilt.  Hopefully it will keep the young graduate warm for years to come.  Congrats to the young graduate!  What a lovely gift!

I'm linking up with Richard and Tanya for the Link-A-Finish FRIDAY.

I'm also linking up with Elizabeth at Such a Sew and Sew for the May Finishes Linky Party.
I found this "healthy" recipe at The Cleveland Clinic Website
Recipe: Sweet Potato Hummus 
This sweet potato hummus contains no fat and is a tasty treat. Even kids love it! Dip whole-wheat pita chips in it, or use it instead of mayo as a sandwich spread.


1 18-ounce sweet potato, baked, with skin removed
1 (4-ounce) jar roasted red peppers, drained, with blackened skin removed
3 tablespoons lemon juice
½ teaspoon fresh garlic, fine dice
½ teaspoon ground cumin
Pinch cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. In a food processor, puree the sweet potato, roasted red peppers, lemon juice, garlic, cumin, cayenne and salt.
  2. Process mixture until it is fairly smooth. Transfer to a serving bowl.
  3. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
