A Look Back

 I was trying to get an idea of the quilts that I finished this year.
I had joined in with the 11 in '11 with Kim at Kim's Big Quilting Adventures.
Now, the rule was that they had to be quilted and Schnibbles (small quilts) don't really count either.
So, as productive as I was, I didn't meet the requirements.
Here are a few quilts that actually did get quilted.
I did a little special sewing for FQS and the rule there is that, of course, it needs to be quilted.
I followed the rules where it counted!

 I also made a shop sample using Flurry by Kate Spade... and this one was quilted also.

My Butterfly quilt got finished and quilted as well.

 Some of the quilts I completed... I couldn't find finished photos for.
But this Flying Geese quilt got done... but I am on the fence with it.
I seem to have a reoccurring theme of debating whether or not to be finished or to
add more borders. 

I had made two Picnic quilts from the book Scrap Basket Sensations. This one was made
with Bliss and the other one was made using Sweetwater fabric: Hometown.

Here is my Gone to Market quilt... small version. This is one that I would like
to make larger also.
Here is my Dear John quilt. Actually called Eventide by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.
Not quilted... might never get quilted.

I finished the FQS 2008 Mystery... and this one does need to get quilted.

 This one was from Scrap Basket Sensations also. It's called Nana's Garden.

Currently this one is done... but I really am going to make it larger...

Frosted Windowpanes is done and I did make it larger than the pattern... just a little bit larger, so
now it can go into the "to be quilted"stack.
Each Day is a Gift.

Vintage Dishes... it's quilted and I love it.

This one is Amelia and is a shop sample...
it will get quilted and go to the stack of quilts that will be for my
granddaughter who is on the way.

There is more small projects and this and that.
I will save that for later.
 So by my count... that's 16 quilts and just 6 of them quilted.

Thats a good effort! I really didn't get anywhere near as many done this year.

I just LOVE the Vintage dishes! Has to be my favorite! I think the year was a success!!

Mary said...

You got so much done! I hand quilt so don't finish nearly as many. And to me, Schnibbles count. Definitely. Who did the Gone to Market pattern? I don't remember that one and it's darling.
