Chopped Block Quilt Center

Over the weekend I was able to finish the center for the first Chopped Block quilt.  It still needs a couple borders to make it the right size for the nursing home quilts, but that's not a big deal.
I love that it's so colorful! 

I also got a piece of animal paw prints at JoAnn's and loaded it with a plain backing onto Gemma.  Going to quilt it up and cut into certain sizes for a project.  Will keep you posted as things progress, just don't want to say too much right now.

Ev and I went to Lotawata Creek on Saturday afternoon.  We shared an order of stuffed fried mushrooms, then each had a salad.  We had never had dessert there before, so decided to try the fried banana pudding.  Unbelievable.  It was huge!

If you are ever in the Fairview Heights, IL area, you have to go to Lotawata Creek.  This restaurant is the best.  Great food, huge portions, prices not too high.

That's a dinner plate the dessert is on.  We took a lot home...  :)
