Lemon Tarts and a Miniature Lemon Colored Cottage Patchwork Quilt

Hello sweet ones, I have been baking (polymer clay food & real food) little lemon tarts, lemon curd, lemon bars....
My sweet mother-in-law has a Meyer Lemon tree (part lemon and orange) and it has amazing lemon juice. California is blessed to have these lemon trees everywhere!
So I have tried to be creative and use up this delightful lemon juice.
It seemed fitting to make a little quilt with cheery spring colors including yellow!
And for anyone who has an urge to bake these fabulous tarts...
here is a recipe below.

First I whipped up a bundt cake and covered it with lemon glaze, made some pie crust, and added some lemon curd to make little tarts....

 Oh yummy! I love all the goodness fresh fruit brings in the spring-time.
