The {Quilting} Year in Review

Year's end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us. –Hal Borland

Michelle over at The Prairie Quilter did a post about the quilts she'd done this year and I thought it was a really good idea. I loved to see her beautiful work from this year all in one place, so I'm going to do the same. I had to think about what counts as a quilt and I've finally decided that anything that has batting between two layers of fabric counts, regardless of the size. So here goes.

In all, I had 69 fabric finishes this year, among which were sixteen aprons, six Abbey bags, six vests, three dresses and two Halloween costumes. I hope you don't mind if I toot my own horn for a minute, but I think that is pretty amazing. I can't wait to see what next year holds.

It's great to see what you've done all in one place; what a nice post. And, I loved seeing my favorite Valentine table runner again :). Great job! Love you.

Marg said...

Wow, I agree, amazing. You have lots of beautiful quilting finished there, and when you add in all your other sewing projects, you must have been very very busy this year.

It's so powerful to see eveything written in one post. You achieved heaps! The snowball remains my fave of your quilts from 2010 but all those projects are fabulous.

Happy New Year E - may 2011 bring you joy and much (more ) creativity!
