Busy Buzz Saw Day

I want to say what Julie said today in her post with regards to Buzz Saw blocks! I'm tired but almost there! If I figure the math correctly (again read her blog) I need just 12.5 more 6 1/2" squares cut of both muslin and print to have a lap size quilt top. The .5 is only because I wasn't paying attention and had miss cut a square that needs to be redone. This is an easy quilt block that requires very little thinking with exception of that cut; I can allow my mind to wander and sew like crazy.

Have you ever had Hot Dog Casserole? My mom made this when I was a kid. I liked it then and still do now.
Ingredients: 1 pkg hot dogs, 4 slices bacon, onion, golden mushroom soup, green beans, potatoes, salt and pepper

Never had that hot dog casserole, but it looks YUMMY (and also maybe not very healthy??? LOL)

Anne said...

Well, you've been a very busy buzzsaw gal. I like your choice of fabrics. My style!

Perry said...

That is a good quilt pattern to use for scraps. I have a book with all of that info in it, but have no idea where it is, lol.

You sparked a memory--- My mom had a hotdog casserole with rice... funny the things you remember. Great blocks. Have fun.

Hi, Mary, I had to enlarge that pic to see how you made those amazing quilt blocks...It would take me two winters to sew those together!! Maybe when I retire, I can come to stay with you for a week and you can help me put a quilt together...I could even bring my own sewing machine! Is that pic taken you your quilting studio? If so, looks amazing.
And the casserole? Do you just stir all that together? Sounds like great comfort food. Enjoy your weekend. Natalie

I have just finished a Buzz Saw for my sister for Christmas. I took me a long time but it was worth it for the reaction. I used the pattern from Lynne Edwards book, the buzz saws go out into the borders. It looks like they are flying off.
I say go for it Natalie it is worth the effort!

Cool BuzzSaw! I am copying that recipe for my son who has suddenly decided to cook for the family. Looks family friendly!

Stina said...

Never had the casserole before . . . . gosh, I haven't thought of golden mushroom soup in just the longest time *s*

Kimberly said...

Mary -- the blocks are just wonderful, and the casserole looks GREAT. I must try it for my boys (all three of them!) The green beans, how many and canned or frozen?

Can't wait to see your BuzzSaw quilt! What size do you usually make your quilts?

Karen said...

I have seen a demo of the blocks you are making but have not made them myself. I remember that it looked like an easy enough project to do.
The hot dog casserole sounds like it would be good. Years ago I had a little cookbook that was all recipes for hot dogs. Don't know that I made a thing from it.

Wendy said...

Your going to be so happy when all those blocks are done, the quilt will be awesome.

Never heard of hot dog casserole, it looks yummy. Your Mom must have added the beans to get the kids to eat veggies.

Laurie said...

The buzzsaw looks like a quilt I could really enjoy making, easy but looks interesting...I played with the block a few years ago but quit before I did more than 2 blocks. Thanks for commenting on my blog.

I've never had that but it looks perfect for a chilly day.

Your blocks are great. Can't wait to see the finished quilt.

Carrie P. said...

Yes, you have been busy. Never had the casserole but it looks pretty good.

Carole said...

You've been quite the busy gal quilting away! That's wonderful! Funny how certain dishes as a youth stick with us! My mum made a great home made soup. I can still remember smashing all my soda crackers in the soup and creating a jiblotte - I cannot find an English word for that! lol Keep well!
