Here's a few projects in the works.
These blocks are HUGE!  They finish at 12 1/2 inches. They are the biggest blocks I have ever made!  What's nice though is that I only have to make 12 to get a nice-sized little baby quilt!  I've always thought I didn't like big blocks, but I'm loving these!
And, I can't wait to cut into these...
Chum Chum Bear! Isn't it cute...and so different from the blocks above! This is one of the things I love about quilting...all the variety of fabric to choose from!  It's never-ending! 
And, just to prove (again) that I actually do make quilts, here's a recent finish for my shop!
Not the best picture, but you get the idea!
Now, off to make some peanut butter cookies with a new recipe - perfect for the fall!

Well...almost! I finished up this little quilt this afternoon (except for the binding)!
I really like the way this turned out!  It was pretty quick to put together with a charm pack of Bungle Jungle and a few borders!
Also, check out this fabulous sewing machine...
This picture was taken in a museum in Icy Strait Point, a tiny little town in Alaska we visited on our recent cruise!  You can't tell from the picture, but this machine was HUGE, probably the biggest sewing machine I have ever seen! I assume it was an industrial machine in its day!
