Yummo brownies!

I baked up a nearly perfect batch of brownies this morning, and for once they baked evenly and didn't collapse to half their size while cooling off. I seem to have had a bad run on brownies, and hadn't made any for quite awhile because they just weren't cooking up well. Hopefully I have that monkey off my back now!
These were made from a recipe from the Olive Grove Olive Oil Company using their blood orange olive oil. The pan is one of those fancy-dancy convoluted all crust pans that is supposed to make them cook more evenly and gives a crust edge on every piece. Right now I am thinking it was worth the investment!

It is beautiful outside today, so I took my newly completed quilt top out for some fresh air! After I get it quilted it gets a binding of that blue check. I really like those check prints! Bob and I had quite a session trying to get these blocks arranged, yet I can see that some things are not in the best places. Too much red stars over on the left, for sure. But it's done for now, so those blocks will just have to stay where they are! It is depicted as a tablecloth on the pattern cover, so I am thinking I will not use regular batting when I quilt it. Instead, I will either use some thermore (very thin poly batting from Pellon) or a heavyweight flannel.

Super cute quilt!

I have to laugh about the brownie pan: in my house we'd need the opposite kind of pan: everyone wants an inside piece, we wouldn't WANT crust edges. :)
