I was able to make a Baby Patchwork Quilt, Mixed Berry Butter, Mandarin Jam and Banana Bread.

The Quilt Squares were purchased at Nevada Craft Supply of Etsy.

After piecing together your patches and sewing them to a flannel piece on the opposite side I learned how to do the binding perfectly at Heirloom Creations of YouTube.

There's no need to follow strict rules of quilting. Follow your heart and start!

My recipe for Mandarin Jam (Can be easily altered.)
Peel and throw mandarins into blender up to 5 Cup line.
Then fill up to same line with Grapefruit Soda, Lemon Lime Soda or Mountain Mist Soda. Liquefy.
Strain through leaving behind white pith and most of the pulp.
Pour strained liquid into large boiling pot and add 5 Cups Sugar.
Bring to boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
Skim off any film that collects on surface.
Add 1-1.5 pouched liquid pectin. Stir and simmer for 10 more minutes.
Add to pre-sterilized jam jars. Seal and give boiling water bath for 10 minutes.
