Here are 3 newborn size baby touques that I finished making today.  They are "posed" on coffee mugs.

This is my latest finish.  A pincushion called Sweetheart of the Rodeo.  It was a kit that I received as a stocking stuffer at Christmas.  If you want to see some fantastic pincushions check out The Daily Pincushion at

Henrietta Whiskers free BOM from Bunnyhill Designs

This is my finished block #1 of the free Henrietta Whiskers BOM designed by Bunnyhill Designs. I love that it is a mixture of piecing and applique. I have chosen to do buttonhole applique using Valdani Threads #12 crochet cotton which comes in the most awesome variegated colours. It gives a different look to the buttonhole stitch as it raises the outline somewhat and I think it enhances my applique.

Here it is my first post.  I just completed the Nanoose Bay Beauty quilt pictured below for my husband.  He's been sleeping under a very pretty pink and purple quilt I made for his mom a few years ago.  Now he gets his very own "manly" quilt.  If you look close you can see that some of the batiks have stylized west coast Indian fish and whale designs printed on them.
