Roll Roll Cotton Boll Part 2 - Done AND Chocolate Chip Cookies!

orange/purple for scrappy quilt...

burgundy/cream for planned quilt. 

Here is a question for you...

What do these cookies and the bottom HST have in common?
The cookie mix is from Lehi Roller Mills in Salt Lake City...and ideas yet?

Think feedsack. Lehi Roller Mills wraps all their mixes in fabric bags. 

I just so happened to be running short on burgundy fabric for the mystery in the size I needed...only had small pieces...nothing large.

So...when Madeline asked to bake some cookies, I was in awe at the color of the bag. It is a little on the brown side of burgundy...but it blended in well...so, I not only recycled it...I repurposed it. 

I think I will always picture Madeline baking chocolate chip cookies in the kitchen when we sleep under this quilt! I just love it when a quilt has a story to tell! ;0) k


  1. The cookies smell so good! And I love the cream in the planned quilt!

  2. I'm going to catch up...I have 1/2 the strip piecing done and hope to steal some thangles from a friend for the HSTs. I'm getting there...slowly. I love your colors and am amazed at the fact that you find time to do TWO quilts!!
