Reflecting on 2012

Warning: lots of photos ahead!
There were a couple of very small projects.

Pam Buda's Pocket Patchwork.

and the one below is a little block of the week by Temecula Quilt Co.

These are the 3 mice I had made

as a giveaway on my blog earlier this year.

And some large projects...
This was my tribute the the Olympics in England.

I made this up for my swap partner Jen!

Something for the holidays! 

This was for Thelma and Nicole's challenge.

I made this for Geared for Guys Remix... girlie version of Ivy League.

I had to attempt a Cathedral Windows pillow and then taught it at my retreat.

Some nice results from being the  BOM Rehab!


I actually finished 2 old block of the month projects that I had been behind in.

2 baby quilts...

 A kite quilt made from a jelly roll.

I made 2 projects for the Fat Quarter Shop that they have kitted.

The kits are still available at FQS!
My year couldn't be complete without some Fig Tree projects...

Le Petite
(my very favorite)

Boardwalk made with California Girl.

Sparkle made from Tula Pink fabric.

Marigold got slipped in between Christmas and New Year's!

The next quilts are my Schnibble projects... minus one because I 
dislike it very much! Let's just say it was a very bad Summer Day!



Card Trick


Hot Cross

T quilt

Leap Year

and a quilt called Papalion using 3 Sisters fabrics. I still haven't gotten a photo of it. Here is a
photo of the pattern.

Full House

I'll say a full house... that totals 32!
The bad news is only 5 have been quilted...
looks like that will be my goal for 2013!

5 quilts quilted is great! So many gorgeous projects. You have had an awesome year!

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

What a show Sinta - you have a beautiful parade of quilts!

Lesley said...

Fabulous quilts! There is not one that I don't adore! You have such a skill at putting fabrics and patterns together. Way to go, girl and thanks for the show!

Izzy said...

Awesome quilts. Your post feels like I've been to a quilt show, while sitting at home, sipping a latte and nibbling on a chocolate croissant! :-)

Marla's Crafts said...

It is so much more fun making them than quilting. I keep saying I won't make any more until I have mine all quilted and than another beautiful pattern comes along.

Kristen King said...

Looks like I need to get back to Rehab!!! Wonderful finishes for this year. I would love to finish 32 projects in one year..maybe that should be my goal. :)

Carol said...

What a fantastic year! You got tons done...and had a grandbaby! Great year!

Just Ramblin' said...

Wow, you really accomplished a lot in 2012. The quilts are beautiful. It seems to be so much easier to piece quilts than to quilt them. Wish I really liked quilting them more. Thanks for sharing. Nola

Litamora's Quilt & Design said...

Great little show! You accomplished a lot! Some of mine didn't get quilted yet either, but hoping that will change this year. ;-) Have a happy sunday!

Carol said...

You got a lot of wonderful quilts done in 2012, that's awesome. I hope you have a productive 2013.

Béa said...

Hildy said...

Wow, you really had a busy nd productive year!
One of my goals for this year is to actually quilt all the quilts I'm making. Wanna join me with my goal?

Dorothy said...


Very nice parade, thanks for sharing

Anonymous said...

My goodness, you really were busy last year! You did a beautiful job on each one of them. I especially like your choices of fabric and colors - wonderful!

Quilt Hollow said...

Do I get to pick my favorite and you send it to me? LOL. Great would be hard to choose the favorite.

Cindy said...

Wow! That's fantastic. I too am in a constant battle with those tops piling up!

Helen said...

I am so impressed by the number of quilt tops you finished! Like Izzy said--it's like a quilt show! Thanks for sharing.

PunkiePie (Jen) said...

You had an impressive 2012 in the sewing department. Love my spools!!

Christine said...

Wow .. what an amazing year, Sinta. You are so inspiring. This week I have quilted one Schnibble and nearly have another done too. I tend to be a bit of a 'topper'.!

Cindy said...

Oh Sinta, what GREAT projects. You certainly keep yourself busy, busy, busy.

My hands are clapping for you.

Thelma said...

Sinta, I can't believe you completed 32 projects last year, that's amazing, Congratulations! I love them all, especially those little mice. That basket quilt is on my 2013 To Do list. Plus, just think of all the time you spent at the VA hospital!

Gretchen said...

Wonderful year in quilts!!

Abby said...

WOW! So many quilts. I'm so impressed with all you get completed. Fun to see them all together.
