I’ve been finishing up a quilt for someone, and it had me reflecting on what I’ve worked on in 2012.
I went through all my photos and found 18 quilts! That averages to more than one quilt a month! I had no idea my 2012 quilting year was that productive.
From left to right, from the top:
1. Baby Boy Airplane Quilt 2. Baby Girl Birdie Quilt 3. I-Spy Quilt 4. Kite Quilt 5. Turtles and Monkeys 6. Hourglass Quilt 7. Girlie Herringbone Quilt 8. Britt’s Quilt 9. Vintage Modern Chevron Quilt 10. Pink Pachyderm Quilt 11. Pow Wow Quilt 12. Spiderweb Quilt 13. Pinwheel Quilt One 14. Boy Herringbone Quilt 15. Guitar Strip Quilt 16. Pinwheel Boys Quilt 17. Pinwheel Quilt Two 18. Wonky Stars Quilt
I have improved in my quilting, both in the time it takes to finish one, and the actual quality of said quilts. Don’t get me wrong, they were always pretty good, but I’ve learned a few tricks along the way, like burying threads and machine-binding (though, I still prefer the look of binding by hand, it is faster and I feel more secure with machine stitching the binding down), and made fast friends with my walking foot for my machine!
Can’t wait to see what 2013 brings!
