Flour Tortillas and Mexican Themed Quilts

Recently I showed you this tote that I purchased at Road to California.


I finally got around to making some the other night using this recipe.  They were good but not fabulous.  I still remember my grandmother making homemade tortillas when I was very little, however I have no idea how she did it.  Any suggestions?  I keep thinking I remember her putting buttermilk in the dough.   Like I said they were good (although not exactly round) and my husband loved them. 


This year at Road to California there  was an exhibit called Hot Hot Needles.  Here are just a few of them.

The exhibit was put together by Jane of Quarter Inch Publishing and Monica of Monica’s Quilt and Bead Creations




  1. That is my son's favorite birthday meal....

  2. I used to make tortillas with masa harina, which is corn flour treated with lime. They tasted like the real mexican deal. I don't have a source for masa harina anymore and I don't make tortillas now....
    The quilts are awesome. I love the use of skeletons in quilts. Never used them myself.

  3. I got my bag yesterday! Thank you! I plan on trying the recipe. I do remember Aunt Amy putting buttermilk in the tortillas. I kind of think they used sour cream sometimes also. I wish we could remember how they made them.


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I love knowing that I'm not alone, blogging into thin air.
