FNSI ~ results....

In July, I taught this
Four Patch Posey block at a local quilt guild.
I used this fabric as an example there and
finally got to finish up my posey blocks.

You can view my other class samples 
that I took HERE and HERE.

And now I think this one is my favorite!
A shabby chic / cottage kinda look.









I have cut some pink and green squares.
Check back next week for the setting.

Thanks for stopping by...
Karen
for other FNSI participants.


Roasting those chiles... quesadillas for lunch!

Gorgeous bag of chiles!
Washed and ready to roast....


 On to the grill to char.... 

 Into the roaster to steam... 


           On to baking sheets to cool...

4 - 6 chiles to a freezer bag ready for the freezer... 

... and finally, LUNCH!
Green Chile / Chicken Quesadilla
with Salsa Fresca and sour cream.
(and, yes, I made the Salsa Fresca.) 

Are you coming for lunch?
We have plenty of chiles...

We just had to try the chiles... these are truly mild, 
as was described on the label.

So, hubby is off to get another bag... medium-hot.  :-D

Hatch Green Chile bag...

in my breakfast nook... 30 pounds!  
From "up the road, a piece."
SOMEone will be roasting these tomorrow...
That'll be my DH.  
He likes to do them himself rather than 
having them done in the roaster by the grocery store.  
They just dump the whole bag in without sorting or washing.
