2011 Quilting Review
This has not been a very quilty year for me. I have spent a great deal of time working at work, working on genealogy, and writing articles for HubPages and elsewhere. Weaving has also taken a great deal of my time this year. Besides the finished projects I am showing on this blog, I have also made progress on several other projects, but not to completion. I worked on the Thangles BOM, made a DJ block, and quilted my Moldy Crackers quilt. If I continue to make that type of progress this year, there will be some completed quilts to show for it.
Here are the quilts I finished this year. There is lots of variety.
This was a little quilt for Kate's Another Little quilt Swap that I finished early in the year.
The Simply Squares quilt was finished in May, even though I forgot the quilt reveal until October. It was one of the rare projects that I worked on start to finish without letting it marinate.
Celebrate was my happiest achievement this year, because this quilt did languish for a long time while I decided what to do with it. I promised a better picture, but I'm not sure I delivered since part of it is cut off.
And don't forget the postcards I made in my last post!
2012 Quilting Goals
I don't think 2012 will be a year for quilting for me either in terms of getting a large number of quilts finished. I am not giving up quilting by any means. I will definitely continue to work on quilting as much as possible, and try to get more done, and hopefully get a chance to get started on some of the ones that are waiting in line. I think there should be at least three or four quilts finished this year. I want to focus on quality, and make progress on the quilts that have applique and lots of little pieces and take longer to make. They have already been started and I just need to keep making progress even though it feels very slow.
It will be a few weeks until the denim rug is finished, and I want to get a large portfolio of articles written on HubPages, and focus on my job.
