What I Learned Today: 

  1. Bagels are hard to make—with one hand.

    I’ll have to make them again. i think they over raised. my daughter has made them before without my help.

  2. I know how it feels to be a kid and help mommy. My daughter measured out all the ingredients so I could put them into the bowl and then I turned on the mixer. After she weighed out all the dough into separate piles, she showed me how to roll them into balls and then she gave me them, one at a time, to spin on my finger to enlarge the hole.
  3. I want to make them again—with two hands!
  4. It’s sad to see this quilt along come to an end. I think I want to make these blocks again in another color scheme.

Question: Which is your favorite block from this QAL? I like sampler blocks. They hold my interest when sewing. They are also fun to design. It’s been fun to work with this group of designers. They each have their own style. My favorite block is the lighthouse but if I can’t count my own, I’d pick the sunset.
