Not Too Shabby

I always seem to forget the quilts I finish and focus on the ones 
that didn't get completed... and in some cases, even started.
But I am going to take a moment to breath and 
take a look back at my year.

My latest finish.

Midwinter Reds by Minick and Simpson.
I can't wait to get this one quilted.

These are a couple of samples that I made for FQS, the top one is Strawberry Social.
This one is going to my grand daughter. Then there is Butter Mints... so cute! Both quilts are made with Pam Kitty Morning fabric. I have to admit... I am addicted to PKM fabrics. As if two quilts aren't enough... I have plans for two more quilts using her latest collection!
And then there is Ms. Thimble Blossoms little (I mean little
but way too cute to pass up making!

This is the Summer Wind pattern by Miss Rose's Quilt Co. using 
High Street... a project I did with Ms. Cupcake.
I really had fun with this one!

This was a super fun and fast quilt I made using the Missouri Quilt Co. 
You Tube video. 

This one is on it's way back to me.
It was a sample I made for FQS using Minick and Simpson fabrics.
I can't wait to get this one in my hands again.

I think this was my favorite for the year. 
It is Shine. Pattern by Sherri at A Quilting Life.
It was a sample I made for FQS using Dear Stella fabrics.
I think you can still get the kit.

A sample that I made up for FQS. 

A Schnibble: Lincoln.

A fun little hexi quilt. It was an easy pattern.
I wanted to get the binding on so fast... that I forgot I had wanted to
make the border scalloped! Dang it.

A quilt that I got done using my my Blogger's Choice bundle from FQS.
I finished in time to have it entered into my local quilt show.

A sweet finish hanging behind my new sewing table made by my son.
Wouldn't this quilt look good in holiday fabrics too?

I got to make Swoon... which I love, made out of 
fabric by Carrie Nelson!

 Then there was a few Schnibbles that got made!

A sample of the stack of bindings that needed to be done.
No doubt things that had been started last year!

My very first dolly... for my little Evie Lou Who!

A BOM Mystery from Quilt Soup!

A little mini sampler sew along from Pam Buda.
I love the fun things she comes up with.

I have so many projects that I didn't get done. I am happy to look back and see some 
I have hopes of getting one or two more done before 2014! 
It's not too late! Right?
