{Post 1,290} Quilt Finished ~ Buckeye Queen

Here is Buckeye Queen.  I like this sooo much.  It's a large throw size.  I made it for a friend who has been such an encouragement to me.  Hope she likes it!  It's washed and dried and ready for delivery.

In honor of the quilt, I made buckeyes this AM.  They are peanut butter, confectioner's sugar and graham cracker crumbs mixed then shaped and frozen, then dipped in milk chocolate.  What's not to like?

Since I was going to be in the kitchen so long, I made a couple batches of these as well.

{Post 1,289} Secret Project

I have a large secret project that I finished the machine quilting on tonight.  Email me for the URL if you don't have it.

{Post 1,288} Little Quilt Finished ~ Big Quilt Started

This is a pattern from a magazine.  I don't remember which one off the top of my head.  I made and quilted it for a customer.  This is the first time I did the swirly stitching you see in the snowman.  I broke 4 needles.  I think the problem was with the invisible thread, not the machine.  So frustrating.

But now the sleeve is in place, and it is finished.  Will be mailed in the AM.  It's about 16" x 20".  Just a guess.

I also started machine quilting a large quilt on my HandiQuilter.  It's going great, but it's a Christmas surprise.  I'll post some pics on my secret blog when I have them.
