Wrapping up 2012

I like to look back and see what I have accomplished in the sewing room this time of the year. Enjoy.
Completed quilts - even if the pictures are of just the tops. I can't seem to find the finished shots!
Crumb quilt for Emily.

12 inch log cabin Quilt Square Along quilt. Hand quilted. 

Jacobs Ladder - currently on my side of the bed. It is darn chilly down here in Florida - near freezing the last few mornings.

Starburst - for Mindy - graduation quilt

Baby Bunting - for Gail's granddaughter.

Irish Chain #1 - donated

Scrappy Pinwheel - donated.

irish chain - red/tan - donated

scrappy pinwheel 2 - donated

tops completed:

scrappy log cabin - pinned and waiting for quilting.

Aidan's star quilt - have backing. ready for quilting.

pink string X- added the final border - ready for quilting.

I'm sure there are other things I am missing but I think that is a pretty good record for 2012! I plan to do a recap of the BOM and BOW projects this year in another post. 2013 I am planning to finish some UFO's that have been hanging around. Then there will be the new projects.... I got three new quilting books for Christmas and have gotten lots of 'inspiration'. I believe G said - 'Hope you like them and that they give you lots of inspiration for your quilting!'. I do love my hubby.
He got me 'Remembering Adelia' by Kathleen Tracy (so I have the template to do my Orange Peels), 'The Civil War Sewing Circle' by Kathleen Tracy and 'Civl War Legacies' by Carol Hopkins.  I have been looking through the books every day since I got them and love all the little quilts in the book. I think a few will get made in 2013.

For now, I'd better get everyone dressed so I can tire out the kiddo's this morning to allow me some sewing time this afternoon. I started a baby double irish chain on Wednesday and need to get it done for next Wednesday. Wish me luck!

So beautiful!! I especially LOVE that 12 inch lob cabin with the pinwheel center! The log cabin is my favorite pattern, and I LOVE that take on the classic.

Hope you find enough sewing time to get your baby quilt done in time. What a fun collection of quilts from this year! Hope you get a couple more crossed off the list before the new year begins.
