snack time!

Here's something to munch on
while you're looking at all the quilts over here
at Amy's Blogger's quilt festival!
Banana Cake.
It always hits the spot!

I haven't decided YET what quilt I'll be entering!
I'll just enjoy the show for now.
I just looked.
There are over 130 quilts already posted!!!
My goodness.
Blogger's problems didn't slow you quilters down ONE. BIT.

The recipe comes from this book
and I blogged about it last year here....
Just in case you want to do some easy baking!!

This cake looks a bit different than the one I made last year.
This time I just sprinkled the nuts on
right before baking instead of mixing them in the dough.

I'm almost out of thread!
I bought this thread at a Hobby Lobby last year in Georgia.
My side of the country doesn't have any Hobby Lobbies!!!
Guess I'm on a treasure hunt here in southern California.


  1. What kind of thread is it Beth? Bread looks good.

  2. Marilyn: It's a perle cotton size 12. I checked the quilt shop today and they have size 8, wrong color. I'm sure I'll find something! ;) Maybe I'll switch colors and then it will be a real "make do" kind of quilt!

  3. You can order from Hobby Lobby online, Beth... not sure what color you're looking for but try this URL:

    If you clock one MORE LIKE THIS under Add To Cart... you'll get the thread in colors..

  4. Thanks for the recipe - I'll have to give it a try! And heaven knows, you've got a wonderful array of quilts to choose from for the Bloggers' Quilt Festival - I wouldn't know which to choose either!

  5. The cake looks delicious. Hope you find the thread you are looking for. Your quilt is so nice.

  6. I have that book. I'm going to have to try the Banana cake. Thanks.

  7. Oh, that cake sounds yummy!
