Festival 2009

Jun 25, 2009

If you have been checking our web site you will find all kinds of new products have been listed. The panel currently on our home page is a tour of Alaska's Flora and Fauna. We have designed a small quilt and reversable bag using this panel. If you visit the Fabrics page you will find a panel from Diane Phalen as well as a table runner we made using the panel and its coordinate.

We have been receiving new panels, fabrics, and gift items in anticipation of next week's Kutztown Folk Festival. When you visit the festival let us know you visited the web site for a 5% discount on your festival purchases. I can't give you a discount on admission but if you follow the festival link on our links page you can download coupons for a $2.00 discount on admission. I do hope to meet you there.

On 'Mom's Page' you can now purchase her Christmas Quilt pattern. We display all the samples for the patterns at the festival and even have a few for sale.

While attempting to make Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins and discovering I was out of both of the major ingredients I came up with a mixed berry muffin recipe.

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
3/4 cup sugar
2 large eggs
3/4 cup vanilla yogurt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup mixed berries (I had strawberries, red and black
raspberries)

Heat the over to 400ยบ. Generously grease 12 muffin cups.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, salt and baking soda. In a medium-size bowl, with electric mixer on high speed, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Reduce the speed to medium and beat in the eggs, one at a time, until well blended. Beat in the yogurt and vanilla.

With rubber spatula, fold the butter mixture and berries into the flour mixture just until moistened. The batter will be lumpy. Divide the batter among the greased cups.

I sprinkled cinnamon sugar on each muffin.

Bake the muffins 15 to 20 minutes or unitl a cake tester comes out clean. Remove the muffins from the cups and serve warm. Enjoy!
