Push Pull Quilt Along -- Final Linkup

Finishing up another quilt along with Quilting Jetgirl, Yvonne Fuchs.

This time I used a different color palette than usual -- yellow.  It is cheerful and sunny, especially now, during June gloom!

Quilting has begun, and it shouldn't take too long to complete.

Looking forward to the next quilt along project.

BBB: Bee Keeper's Pain de Mie

The Kitchen of the Month for June is Tanna of My Kitchen in Half Cups.  Tanna chose Bee Keeper’s Pain de Mie, adapted from Martin Philip’s Breaking Bread.  The recipe calls for a Pullman pan, which I don’t have, so I used a 9x5” loaf pan and halved the recipe.  The one ingredient I was lacking was the wildflower tea.  I substituted some rose/hibiscus tea, although there was no evidence of that flavor in the final bread.

The bread, itself, had a nice crumb and good flavor.  I would make it again and leave out the tea, since it didn’t add anything to the final bread.  It’s also worth remembering that this is a two-day process, making the biga on the first day, and the bread on the second day.  Not difficult at all, but time management is key.

Hope you bake along with us.  Send Tanna your results before the end of the month to be included in the Buddy roundup.  You can find the recipe on her blog.
