Banana Zucchini Bread

My mom brought me some yellow zucchini (summer squash) and i needed to use it and the ripe bananas, so i made some bread today.  I changed the recipe, i didn't use nutmeg or ground cloves and substituted 1 t. allspice instead.  I made it into one loaf and cooked it longer.

3 lg. eggs
2 c. sugar
1 c. vegetable oil
1 1/2 c. shredded zucchini
1/2 c. mashed banana
3 tsp. vanilla
3 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. baking powder
3 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. cloves
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 c. chopped nuts or raisins

Mix eggs, oil, sugar, zucchini, banana and vanilla together. Combine next 6 ingredients and add to zucchini batter. Fold in nuts or raisins. Pour into well greased 9 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 1 hour. Makes 2 loaves.

3 Little Pigs quilt

This is a 1930 Three Little Quilt Pattern that my Grandma had from the newspaper.  My mom had made this quilt but threw it away because it had holes in it.  I tried to duplicate it from my childhood memory.  My mom's quilt was green, but i made this one blue.  I started this quilt overseas in Wales and didn't have the resources we have in the US to applique the pieces so i went to their charity shops and bought some shirts to use for my applique.  i didn't finish it overseas so i purchased other fabric to complete the applique in the US.  It was quilted in Indianapolis at Quilts Plus.  I changed the original quilt by adding sashing to the blocks which has made it bigger than the original crib size in the pattern.  It is hanging in the room that my grandsons use to take a nap in.
