Since I have signed up for two quilts, I decided to get started on the first quilt. My snack barrel holding 2" squares was just stuffed full - so of course I know there is enough for a postage stamp quilt.
A 12 x 12 setting for a 18.5" block - then a 3 x 4 block setting for a 55.5" x 74" quilt top - I may have to play around with this to get the correct size for the charity requirements.
My second quilt will be a real quick pattern from MaryQuilts - the 'Boxed Squares'. Love that it uses an entire Jelly Roll - only waste is the selvedge and fold. There are quite a few quick patterns on her list which might inspire your H2H quilt.
AND A RECIPE
Crock Pot Salsa Chicken2 chicken breasts, fresh or frozen
1 (24 oz.) jar salsa
1 (15 oz.) can black beans, drained & rinsed (or about 2 cups cooked, dry beans)
1 (8 oz.) bag frozen corn
Spray crock pot with nonstick spray. (or use a crock pot liner). Place chicken breast at the bottom of the crock pot. Pour salsa, beans, and corn on top of the chicken breast. Cover and cook on High for about 2 hours- check chicken. Lower heat setting. When the chicken is fully cooked, shred it with two forks and stir everything together. **when using frozen chicken I have left on the HIGH setting for 4 hours and I have used 4 chicken breasts with the same amount of ingredients**
This can be served in a bowl, over tortillas or in a flour tortilla with sour cream and shredded cheese.
For a more 'soup' like chicken - add 1 can cream soup(chicken, mushroom, celery). Also, you can change the flavor with a fruit salsa - peach,mango,pineapple. And serve over rice or pasta. ** you can even swap out the chicken for beef or pork**
