Homemade Buns and Belated Quilting


Yesterday I finished half the quilting on my current project, and today I gave in to cravings for homemade buns for our burgers.


I first blogged about these delicious buns on my older blog . This time I used sugar instead of honey - I'm not sure we can tell the difference - and I gave them an egg-white wash and sprinkle of sesame seeds.


This recipe is one of the best for flavor and sturdiness, and they smell so good while they are baking.


This is a quilt that was pieced by my niece's maternal grandmother, and I've "only" had it since 2012, which is when my very patient niece asked me to finish it. (This is a different niece than the one that has cancer.) You can read about it by scrolling down in this post.


I began quilting this week, and I'm doing simple wavy lines. I hope to have it ready to mail to her by next week. It will be a nice surprise for her - she has probably forgotten about it!

  1. Hi Linda, boy your rolls look so professional and I bet they taste just as nice. A very pretty quilt that your nieces grandmother has made and when you finish it I am sure it will be a family heirloom.
