Welcome to a cold and wet May quilt club. It was a good day to be inside socializing. Socializing we did too! For some reason we didn't do much talking about quilts or sewing of the same. Sometimes it is just nice to get together and chat.
We did things a little bit different this time. Brunch was the menu, so we ate first. Below are some pictures of the food. On the left is Rhonda's breakfast casserole. I will post the recipe when I get it. The dish on the right is Sheree's French toast casserole. There was also fruit but I am not sure who brought that. I will add the name if anyone tells me.

LEMON BLUEBERRY BUNDT CAKE WITH LEMON GLAZE
lemon boxed cake mix
boxed lemon pudding
1 cup sour cream
1/4 cup oil
1 pint blueberries
2 tbsp turbindo sugar
3cup powdered sugar
3 tbsp melted butter
zest of 1 lemon
juice of 1 lemon
Mix cake mix, pudding, eggs, sour cream and oil together.
Fold in blueberries ( batter will be thick so fold in easily)
Spread batter evenly in pan and spread turbindo sugar over batter.
Bake 350 degrees for 40-45min.
Cool in pan for 30min. then remove from pan to cooling rack till finish cooling.
Make glaze with above ingredients. I used a small lemon and it wasn't enough liquid so I added more lemon juice.
I found that this made enough to ice the cake instead of glazing it, so if you only want to glaze I would only use half the amount of powdered sugar.
We had special guests today too! Jessie came with her son to pick up the bags. Her son was born 6 weeks early and she was given care packages while in the NICU and wants to pay it forward. She will fill the bags that we made with goodies for other parents who have to spend time with their newborns there.
Carrie had a weighted blanket to show us that she made for Griffin. Thomas the train on one side and minkie on the other. She used 11 pounds of pellets in the blanket. If anyone wants to make one Carrie can share the info she gathered to make hers.
For our regular show and tell, Sheree used Bonnie Hunter's new block and made this baby quilt.
A Hungry Hungry Caterpillar panel was used for the center of this quilt.
Sue made this memory quilt for a gentleman who lost his wife.
As I was leaving a surprise guest was arriving! Deb returned from the South for settlement on their house here in PA. It was nice to see her and catch up with all of her new activities at her new home. Great to see you again Deb! Unfortunately Cathy had already left. Thanks for taking the picture Ed!
See everyone then!
