Nabby's Dowry and a recipe.

Since today is Friday, there was a new post for the Nabby's Dowry sew along. I am using some leftover HST's to make this fun little quilt and love how this week's block looks. All these little 2 inch squares turned into a nice little 6.5 inch block.

I had picked up a large zucchini at the farm stand earlier this week and finally got it shredded. I have two bags in the freezer ready to make a bread and a spice cake. The rest made a spice cake which was made this morning and sampled after lunch. It got the two thumbs up from the kids.... especially the cream cheese frosting! If you have extra zucchini hanging around why not give it a try. I keep my Taste of Home magazine with the recipe in with my cookbooks but it can also be found here online.

That's a nice use for extra HSTs. As for the spice cake, what's not to like about anyting with cream cheese frosting?

That's a cute little block - a great use for some leftover HSTs. The recipe looks a lot like my zucchini bread - I'm sure it would be wonderful with cream cheese frosting - I'd give it two thumbs up too! ~Jeanne

I'm anxiously waiting for our zucchini plants to actually start producing - and then zucchini cake and zucchini bread is definitely on my menu!!

Cute little block!
