Today's post is brought to you by the letter Q...

The first Q is for Quiche.  I don't often cook for two main reasons - one, I don't really enjoy it, and two, my husband does.  So that works for both of us.  However, I do like to bake, and quiche, to me, falls into the baking category.  I know that's not logical, but I can explain.  I like to bake because you mix up the ingredients, get it in the oven and then clean the kitchen.  So, by the time it's done, you have a neat kitchen and a yummy finished product to cooling on the side, sending beautiful smells around your house.  And you can do that with quiche.

This recipe is a new discovery for me from The Bean Book by Rose Elliot who is a wonderful vegetarian recipe author.  This one is a mushroom and chick pea quiche and it's very tasty.

The second Q is for Quilt.  The green quilt is done and I'm so pleased with how it's turned out - I love it!!  It's not for me though - it's for the daughter of a friend.  She opted for green fabric and I chose the pattern.  It's a basic square and triangle block which can go together in lots of ways, but I think this arrangement is very striking.

She's not seen it yet - so I can't wait to give it to her.

The quilting is quite simple - straight lines in the ditch and echoing the main lines in the patchwork.

And the third Q?  Queen of course! Or future Queen at any rate.  Hope you  enjoyed the Royal Wedding if you watched it.  I loved seeing all the fabulous dresses and hats.
