Long Time No Blog

Well it has been busy here with school in full swing again. Lots of meetings for school and sports. My daughter has finally at long last gotten into planning what college I will go to mode, so that has involved lots of talks and plans and website looksees.

I haven't been in the mood to blog either. Don't know why. I think I still get separation anxiety from my kids after summer break, and I keep thinking about my daughter going off to college next year. It makes me sad. Here are my little (used to be at least) babies.
I finished these blocks for Kids Quilts. Check out Alison's blog here. She is assembling quilts for the siblings of children who are chronically ill.

This quilt's theme is bug jars. You have probably seen a few others bug jar blocks around blogland.

I finished another UFO, a king sized one. I need help from the kiddos to hold it up for pictures. Maybe tomorrow.
In the meantime even though there are quite a few UFOs still waiting to be quilted, I really felt like doing some piecing. I am working on a scrap quilt called Patches and Pinwheels from Bonnie's wonderful Quiltville site.
These are the patches. They are finished and I am working on the Pinwheels. Should be colorful anyway!
Oh and I almost forgot, I am participating in the Secret Santa Christmas Swap that Chookyblue is running. She has a great blog, check it out.
I also finished piecing the quilt from my header. Not quilted yet, so I will wait to post a photo once it is all completed.
Now off to pick up my son from school.
Happy quilting,

Hello! I came across your blog... as I was looking for bug jar quilts. I saw pictures of your blocks. Did you finish your quilt and do you have pictures you could send me? I would love to see the finished product.

Thanks so much. Vickie Miller in Anchorage. :)
