Quilting in the Garden at Alden Lane
The theme for the hop is not only these great Edge rulers, but also our first time.. quilting that is. I have written about my first quilt before, and you can catch up on that story here. I even scanned in a picture of the very first quilt I made.

I think for so many people, rulers, mats and rotary cutters really revolutionized quilting. I had always had quilt envy.. the pages of Country Home and Country Living were strewn with quilts and there was no way I could acquire vintage quilts, you know back in the dark days before ebay.

Of course after seeing that you could make a quilt without using templates, well I was all over that. No looking back.

Accurate measuring has always always been a challenge for me. Of course over the years I've learned how to properly use my rulers as the guide, not my mat.

Of course having a sharp rotary blade makes all the difference in the world. And that brings us right back to these Sullivan's Edge Rulers
We have verdant fields of marshmallows too, not just Monica.
I'd like to pass along 'my' great recipe for fudge. I think everyone has this recipe by now, but it really is the best fudge around.
2 c. sugar
3/4 c. butter
2/3 c. (5 1/3 oz.) can evaporated milk
1 (12 oz.) pkg. semi-sweet chocolate pieces
1 (7 oz.) jar Kraft marshmallow creme
1 c. chopped nuts
1 tsp. vanilla
Combine sugar, butter and milk in saucepan. Bring to full rolling boil, stirring constantly. Continue boiling for 5 minutes over medium heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, stir in chocolate pieces until melted. Add marshmallow creme, nuts and vanilla. Beat until well blended. Pour into greased 13 x 9 inch pan. Cool at room temperature. Cut into squares.
Remember to leave your comment on all the blogs on their special day. And today, be sure and see what Monica and Amy have cooked up for you. Here's a little instructional video on the proper use of rulers.
