I just had to show you

I have been following Teresa’s progress with my Flirting With Flowers BOM as she did a block each month.
Not long after I put up a new block, she would have it all done waiting for the next month to do that one. I finally got the layout all written out and offered that on my blog and Teresa took hers away with her to her quilting retreat over the last weekend to finish hers.
Here it is.. I am totally blown away with how fabulous it has turned out.
P1090756 (Small) I just want to quote what Teresa said about the pattern….
“Thanks Vicki,
I had a lot of comments on my quilt and I am really happy I made the saw tooth border. It went together so well, all the measurements were spot on and your instructions were a breeze. With every thing going on at the retreat and all the distractions I was a bit worried about having to concentrate on the instructions, but I didn't have any trouble at all. You did a great job and with the colour pictures it was just so easy. Thanks again, I've really enjoyed making this quilt. Now to quilt and bind it!!!”
I love it Teresa and you have done it proud.
Sausage Rolls……….
A few of you have asked me for the recipe for my sausage rolls that I had cooking in my new oven here
and so here you go…..
I didn't take a picture of them after they came out of the oven and now they are all gone so still no picture…
But ……
This mix makes around 30 sausage rolls. It’s not a perfect recipe but we love it so that is good testament…….
Sausage Rolls
1 kg of sausage mince
1 kg of pork mince
2 eggs
teaspoon Vegetta (Optional) -Flavouring
teaspoon chicken stock powder
1/4 teaspoon curry powder
teaspoon mixed dry herbs
1/2 cup cooked chopped onion
3 slices of fresh bread soaked in water and squeezed excess water out and broken into small chunks
4 sheets frozen puff pastry (thawed out)
extra egg for glazing – whisked
Pre-heat oven to 180 deg C.
Mix all together (except extra egg) thoroughly and spread two rows per sheet of pastry. Cut the pastry sheet into half lengthways and moisten one side with the egg glaze and roll up into long length. Cut into 3rds or desired lengths and place Baking Paper onto baking trays and then place the sausage rolls on. Brush with the egg glaze and prick with a fork along the length and place into oven at 180 deg Celsius. Bake for approx. 30 – 40 mins depends on your oven cooking time.
I should say that I didn't eat them all….my DH has eaten half of them and I gave some to his parents too…
Hugs to all…….Vicki

Teresa's version of your quilt is so pretty, Vicki!!
Yum,yum...those sausage rolls are still calling my name! :-)

Margie said...

Sounds so yummy, but am having trouble trying to figure out just what vegetta is or what I can use in place of it. Don't think we have that here in the states. Now excuse me while I go and find somewhere to convert the KG's to what I can understand. LOL

Teresa's quilt is gorgeous. It must be fun to see your design in so many different colors. And thanks for the sausage roll recipe. I miss all those yummy rolls and pies since I have returned to the states, so I am going to have to try them out. L,A-
