11  My First Quilt! (Disappearing 9 Patch) in Quilting: Completed Projects by photojenn on: March 30, 2014 10:18:58 AM
I started this quilt back in January and just finished hand stitching the binding this morning. Grin  It's hard to believe that it started off as 315 4.5"x4.5" squares!  The finished quilt measures just under 7'x5'.  I felt like the quilt top itself was loud enough so I just went with the same chocolate brown from the small squares for the back and the binding.



Since it was my first time quilting anything larger than a knitting needle roll, I decided to do straight lines that followed the pattern of the quilt top for the actual quilting part.  Here's a close up where you can see the quilting lines.


Overall I'm extremely happy with how it turned out but will definitely be making something a bit smaller for my next quilt  Cheesy

Here's an awesome tutorial MareMare did on how to make a Disappearing 9 Patch quilt top - https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=422253.0#axzz2xT0UpfHH

12  Vegan Pho in Vegetarian / Vegan by photojenn on: January 01, 2014 03:39:18 PM
I'd never had pho before so I decided to dive in headfirst and try making it.  Smiley  Overall it turned out great (I had no idea what to expect).  I used tofu (cut a block of tofu into chunks and bake at 425F for about 25-30 min, flipping once), baby bok choy, and shitake mushrooms for the toppings.  For the onion (called for in the recipe as a garnish), bok choy, and mushrooms I sauted each ingredient individually with a little evoo and set aside.



Here's the recipe I followed

14  Sweet Chili Lemon Tofu with Wok Steamed Kale and Quinoa in Vegetarian / Vegan by photojenn on: April 06, 2010 06:54:41 PM
We made this a few weeks ago and it was so pretty that I had to take pictures   Cheesy


It's a modified version of a recipe from Vegan Yum Yum

Instead of using lime, we used lemon juice because that's what we had.  We also substituted kale for collards and made some extra quinoa.  The recipe was super easy to put together and very tasty, I'd highly recommend it!

15  [April Fools] My first time with polymer clay! Chocolate Ice Cream jewelry!! in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by photojenn on: April 01, 2010 06:19:07 AM
I lost one of my favorite earrings last week and I wanted to find a new pair quick so I thought what better way than to make my own!  I've had a bunch of polymer clay sitting around for months but I've been too afraid to try working with it.  After several attempts, I finally came up with the perfect idea - combine 2 of my favorite things, jewelry and ice cream!  I love how these turned out!  Comments/questions welcome!   Smiley
