Christmas Virtual Cookie Exchange and Blog Hop - Buffalo Check Christmas

It's time to make Christmas happen here in the Sticks
and
my friend Carol at Just Let Me Quilt
has a way of pushing me to get my projects finished on time.

Welcome to 
Creatin' in the Sticks!

I'm excited to kick off the
where bloggers are sharing Christmas cookies recipes, traditions, 
and/or 
sewing projects.
Thank you, Carol, for including me!

Merry Christmas!


I've been so inspired by all the buffalo check prints and plaids 
this Christmas.
They seem to be everywhere from decor to clothing.

This wrapping paper inspired me to make a Christmas throw.


I found the black and white striped fabric that was perfect for this project
but
you certainly do not want to work with that fabric too long.
Dizzy is not a strong enough word to say how I felt at times while I cut the fabric.
Once it was cut in smaller bias pieces, I could work with it a little easier.


This quilt is simple square piecing with a half square triangle bow
and
HeatNBond Lite used for an applique tag.
I stitched arouond the appliqued tag with 50 wt. Aurifil thread.


Quilted with snowflakes and backed with Minky, it will certainly be a nice cozy
Christmas present.


But you are here not only for Christmas inspiration but for some virtual cookies.


If you love coconut as much as I do, you'll love this recipe.
It's not super sweet, but it is a jazzy version of an oatmeal cookie.

I made the recipe a JPG file so just right-click on it to save it.


You could add raisins or chocolate chips, but this little one likes them just like the recipe.


If you want more cookie recipes, you are in luck.

I also love buffalo plaid, and it really is appearing everywhere this season. Beautiful quilt as well. Thank you for the cookies recipe too.

Great project. I love Buffalo plaid. Thanks so much for the recipe!

Cynthia's Creating Ark said...

Yum! There a few fabrics that make me dizzy too.

CathieJ said...

I love that warm and cozy quilt that you made. That backing looks so very warm, but boy can I understand why the stripes could make you dizzy in big amounts. I love any cookie with coconut. I will be making these cookies very soon just like that adorable little one likes them.

Carol said...

I love, love, love that plaid quilt! I was convinced it was pre-made and you added the bow until I saw the fabrics you used. Clever woman! It is wonderful! Those cookies look awesome too. I think coconut added to anything makes it better so these cookies will be a must-make for me. Your granddaughter is a cutie (as all granddaughters are).

Dorian said...

Great looking lap quilt! it would make me dizzy cutting up that fabric though too! Thanks for the cookie recipe, Merry Christmas!

LIttle Penguin Quilts said...

Oh my gosh, that buffalo check throw is awesome. I can only imagine working with that stripe. LOL!! Your cookies sound wonderful. You just can't go wrong with coconut. In cookies, in hand lotion, sunscreen... :-)

LOVE buffalo plaid - its perfect for winter!

Carol S. said...

I thought it was a whole piece of fabric with a bow added...wow! This is such a warm and cozy quilt. Love it! The cookies look delicious and I gained five pounds just thinking of eating them. Thanks for sharing, hopping, and being so inspiring. xo

Cute quilt and yummy looking cookie recipe. Thanks for getting my favorite blog hop off to a great start ... :-) Pat

Farm Quilter said...

I can see how buffalo checks would make your eyes go wonky!! You ended up with an adorable quilt!! Your oatmeal coconut cookie recipe reminds me of my grandmothers...a few differences but I bet they both taste delicious!! I'll have to give your version a try!

Beatrice said...

I love coconut... and my husband hates it. More cookies for me, I guess, haha. Thanks for sharing, they sound delicious.

Charlene McCain said...

Love that buffalo plaid quilt! And your snowflake quilting is gorgeous! The minkee backing will make it extra snuggly. Your cookies look and sound delicious! Another recipe for my cookbook!

Hi Carla! Thank you SO much for the yummy cookie recipe. I adore coconut and then to pair it with an oatmeal cookie - yumEEEEEEE. I can hardly wait to make some. I also adore Buffalo plaid - that mug you shared in the background is the bomb. I have been meaning to make a Buffalo plaid quilt of my own and you are certainly inspiring me to do so. You just keep making that cookie recipe the way sweetpea likes them. How adorable is she?!! That photo makes me want to scoop her up, give her a cookie and see what's on her mind. Merry Christmas to you and your family. ~smile~ Roseanne

Michelle said...

What an awesome idea for a quilt. That striped fabric was such a find eve
N if it was hard to work with.

Vroomans' Quilts said...

I love buffalo plaids, too and this is just such an awesome quilt. Oatmeal cookies for dunkin' on a cold day - yummo!

LJ said...

Love, love your quilt - looks like a great one to make. The stripe is perfect. The cookies sound yummy and they are 'on my list'. Love that buffalo print mug and hope Santa brings me one. Thanks, Carla.

Brenda @ Songbird Designs said...

Great throw - but I can definitely see how you could easily get dizzy dealing with that fabric!! Love the mug and the cookies sound great. I do love coconut!

Nancy said...

The cookies look yummy and the quilt is lovely. I got advice years ago from a shop owner who said to close one eye when cutting fabrics with stripes or dots and it truly does cut down on that dizzy feeling!
I am trying to figure out how you did that quilt pattern, I really am in love with it.

marebear said...

Yummy recipe and love me that buffalo plaid! I want more info about the Winter Blues Blog Hop, so will investigate. Sounds like fun.

Denise :) said...

I love how festive buffalo plaid looks when you add a dash of red to it! Your coconut oatmeal cookies sound amazing! :)
