Our Easter dinner was traditional. My husband cooked the lamb, asparagus, and new potatoes. I tried a new recipe for dessert: Rhubarb Frangipane Pie . I looked up frangipane, which is one of those words I've read but would have been hard pressed to define precisely. "Late 17th century: from French, named after the Marquis Muzio Frangipani (see frangipani). The term originally denoted the frangipani shrub or tree, the perfume of which is said to have been used to flavor the almond cream."
On to quilting!
I finished Lakeside Sunset -- quilted and bound. (Thank you, Lori in South Dakota, for providing the name.) It used about 8-1/2 yards in all.
I also started and finished the favors I will take to Australia next month for the Magpies' biennial in-person meetup. It is a smaller group than in previous years (here and here .... I never did post the group picture from 2012 in California). These are 6 x 9 mug rugs (or wallhangings). The quilt block is Birds in the Air.
In progress: dots-and-dashes Churndash blocks. This is the second batch that the Blockswappers will exchange.
