It's Been A Good Year

I had a wonderful Christmas! I enjoyed everything this year so much and what made it all better was that everyone was home, everyone was healthy and everyone is doing well!
I hope your holiday was festive and filled with those you love also!
I thought I would take a moment to look back at 2009. A year filled with friends, old and new. a year of inspiration, quilting and an opportunity to share my quilting obsession with others also.
So here are a few pictures of those things.
The quilt above is by Paulette. I am in awe of her work and hope to learn from her expertise in machine quilting sometime!
Some friends who keep me laughing and who inspire me also!

Some of the things I made this year that are patterns and fabric by Fig Tree & Co. and a great source of inspiration for me!


A quilt that finally came off of my "to do" list!

I had the opportunity to make some shop samples which is always an honor and a privilege!

And yet another Fig Tree inspiration. This is a quilt that was done for the Fig Tree Club which I get to host for Cottage Quilts in Fresno, CA.


This year I fell madly in love with Dresden Plates! This is one of the projects started
and there are several more in the works!

Okay, I am even surprising myself now with more Fig Tree projects:

This one I was actually doing for Joanna for a Fresh Vintage issue.


This was a sweet little project that still needs to get quilted. Maybe I can slip it in along with one of my Schnibble quilts. I think I will save my Schnibble quilts for another post!

It's been a good year!
I hope yours has been good too!

You have been busy this year! Love all of the quilts shown! The last one is probably my favorite, if I had to choose just one. Although I wouldnt want to have to choose. :)

Happy New Year to you and your family!

Okay....I am thoroughly inspired by all you have done. I absolutely love your Dresdan Plate. It is one on my to do list!

Have a wonderful 2010.

Great quilts, Sinta. I've never seen the last one - it's beautiful. Oh yes, get it quilted for sure!

Happy New Year. Peace.
