New Season New Fabrics

Apr 8, 2013

We aren't completely sure it is spring but at least one layer of clothing has been eliminated. This weekend was a bit warmer.

Nearly every day we are getting new products. McGregor's Garden, Sesame Street, and Great Pumpkin from Quilting Treasures and Beautiful Birds from Elizabeth's Studios. Both are shown on our facebook page with projects from each. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Wilsons-Calico-Corner/228777461016?ref=hl

We also have wooden signs made in America that say "Life is better in My Quilt Room'. These are available in Blue, Burgundy, of Light Brown. http://www.wilsonscalico.com/catalog/item/3104684/9721202.htm

At long last we have completed the Jeans Tote Bag pattern. This can also be seen on our facebook page or at http://www.wilsonscalico.com/catalog/item/1644019/9791120.htm We wanted to make this pattern downloadable but there are too many photos in the instructions so it is too large to upload to the site or to send via email. How annoying!!!

Still in the works are tote bags with the 'Top Ten Reasons I Buy Fabric', A table runner from new Christmas fabric, a T-shirt pillowcase, and maybe a more permanent place of business. That last one seems to be taking a long time. The junior partners tell me I am too picky!

I did find that great recipe I told you about last newsletter. We may still have everything in boxes but at least we are discovering what is in each box.

This recipe is quick and easy. A great way to make supper after a day in the quilt room.

Greek Chicken and Potatoes

1 3 1/2 pound chicken, quartered
6 russet potatoes (about 3 1/4 pounds), peeled and quartered lengthwise
4 large garlic cloves, halved
3/4 cup low salt chicken broth
3/4 cup olive oil
2/3 cup fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons dried oregano, crumbles

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Arrange chicken, potatoes, and garlic in large roasting pan. Season with salt and pepper. Pour broth over. Whisk olive oil, lemon juice, and oregano to combine. Pour evenly over chicken and potatoes.
Bake until chicken is cooked through and golden brown and potatoes are tender. Baste occasionally with broth. Bake approximately 1 1/4 hours
