Our sewing group of five meet once a month. Each one has to take a turn and provide lunch. My husband calls us "The Gadabouts" because one lives in Germantown, TN, one in Mumford, TN, one in Trenton, TN, one in Greenfield, TN, and me in McKenzie, TN. Darlene was the host last month and served this delicious -- did I say DELICIOUS!!! -- dessert. I have made it twice and it is a 5 star for my husband and grandson, so thought I would share the recipe for you to enjoy during this hot summer.
Strawberry Whipped Sensation
4 cups fresh strawberries, divided (I used frozen strawberries since they are no longer in season)
1 can (14 oz) Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 8 oz tub Cool Whip, thawed, divided
8 Oreo chocolate sandwich cookies, finely chopped
1 tablespoon butter, melted
Line 8 x 4 inch loaf pan with foil. Mash 2 cups of strawberries in large bowl (I used my food chopper). Stir in condensed milk, juice and 2 cups of Cool Whip. Pour into pan.
Top with chopped cookies mixed with the butter. Press into mixture.
FREEZE at least 6 hours. To seerve, invert onto plate. Remove foil. Frost with remaining Cool Whip. Top with remaining strawberries.
I am thinking about trying it with raspberries instead of strawberries. Doesn't that sound good!!

Cut one 4-1/2" square
Cut two 5" squares. Subcut these once diagonally to make 4 triangles
Cut two 5-1/4" squares. Subcut these twice diagonally to make 8 triangles
Fabric No. 2 (white):
Cut one 5-1/4" square. Subcut it twice diagonally to make 4 triangles
Cut four 3" squares. Subcut them once diagonally to make 8 triangles
Fabic No. 3 (pink):
Cut four 2-1/2" squares
Cut one 5-1/4" square. Subcut it twice diagonally to make 4 triangles.
Make four corner blocks using the eight fabric No. 2 triangles (from the 3" squares) and four fabric No. 3 2-1/2" squares. Once you have these sewn, sew them to the Fabric No. 1 triangles cut from the 5" squares. They should measure 4-1/2" when sewn together. You will have four of these:

My longarm is down waiting for a new needle bar so I've been playing upstairs today. I have added the braided border to the top and it looks like this:
I know my next border will be a black border - probably 2-1/2" - maybe 3", but I don't know what border will follow that. I need it to fit a queen size bed and it is about 60" x 65" now. Any suggestions?????

Barb made this quilt for her god son. Very masculine, so I just used my Circlelord zigzag board.
Several ladies at St. Jude Catholic Church in Martin, TN made a quilt for which chances are sold to make money for the Church. I was honored to donate my quilting.
I did have to use blue thread on the two outer borders so they really show on the back. I hope it brings in lots of $$$$$!!
