Hello! ...Pickles...& Quilts....& all manner of such things....

Blogging is a new thing for me and certainly starting my own is rather intimidating...but about a week ago a dear little lady in the guild brought me her HUGE Tupperware container for making pickles...she also brought the pickling lime, pickling spices and the recipe for Old South Sweet Pickles.  At the guild Christmas party last year I had commented on her great pickles; so she put me into the kitchen on a new endeavor!  The recipe has definitely been out for a while...it takes about 5 days from start to bottling...and then they must sit for some time before they are really pickled. So even after all the fussing, cutting, rinsing, soaking, boiling, sterilizing and (more!) soaking, packing and sealing I haven’t had even a smidgen of taste! But being in the kitchen thinking pickles, working pickles and definitely SMELLING pickles; got me thinking of something I have always wanted to make...a Pickle Dish Quilt.  It may be that this dear lady really set me on the path of pickle dish quilting....I’m going to try to clear out some things from the studio and pull out some stash and make fabric pickles this summer!  I’m hoping that by the time the pickles are ready to taste I will have ONE pickle dish ready?!.... J  Any lovers of Old South Sweet Pickles or Pickle Dish Quilts out there?

How sweet of her not only to give you the recipe, but to bring her tupperware, pickling lime, and the spices, that just tickles me. She must really think a lot of you. I think the pickle quilt idea is adorable. You could even do jar covers like they do with wine and give your pickles as gifts with the recipe tucked in.

MMMM Homemade pickles.  To me, the smell permeating thro-out the house, would be heavenly.  Of course, I dont know what an Old South pickle is, but the pickles my mother used to make back in Iowa were especially memorable - watermelon pickles anyone?  Mom didnt quilt, but I even had a small bedroom redone by one of my sons-in-law.  Wonderful place of refuge with plenty of space for quilting.  Please let us know how the pickles turned out, delicious, I'll bet.

I would love to make pickles again but since i am the only one in my house that eats them I am afraid they would be around here forever.  I did see a neat new pattern for making the pickle dish quilt pattern.  Linda Everhart has a pattern called Shenanigans.  It is really cute.

How are your pickles and pickle dish quilt coming ?  We would very much like an update.
