I have been participating in the “Monthly Color Challenge” Quilt-A-Long series being hosted by Patterns by Jen.
For March, we moved on to the amazing Sweet Potato….although there has been a lot of questions about whether we should be calling it a Yam!!
I headed upstairs with my inspiration….soon to be my lunch…..
…and once again marveled in the wonderful colors!!
Picking fabrics was fun….
….and before I knew it the pieces were cut……
….and piecing could begin…..
Since I am making the 6-inch blocks, it was important to keep a correct seam allowance. If you remember, I learned this lesson the hard way when I was making my Lemon block. You can read about it HERE.
I love the resulting block…..
We are supposed to share our favorite recipe each month and mine is super simple…..
Bake the sweet potato until it is nice and squishy and caramelized….
….add butter, mash it well and salt and pepper liberally!!!
