Macarons Quilt is Coming Along


I'm liking this quilt. All the vertical rows are sewn. My DH took a look and said, "Shouldn't you organize them more? Or else make them completely random?" Haha. Maybe I'll try those ideas sometime, but I like this bakery display inspired arrangement. 


 I tried making real macarons for the second time yesterday. They are elusive little treats; the batch had to be thrown away. They were mushy and sticky on the inside. The batter was too wet. I think the problem was that I measured the confectioner's sugar and almond flour first, then sifted it. The particles that didn't go through the sifter were thrown away, but it amounted to about 1/8 cup. I should have sifted first, then measured. Here's a very good video about making macarons.
