Quilting recap for 2013.

I decided to do a recap post of what I have finished this year. I know I have worked on a bunch of other things that are just in the block stage including the grandmothers choice blocks, the midget blocks, orange peels have been sewn into X and O blocks... so maybe those will be in the show next December as completed. For now, enjoy the mini quilt show of completed things this year.

Baby Quilt for Jordan - Irish chain. Aidan's PreK teachers baby girl born last January. She is walking now and getting into all kinds of mischief.

Aidan's Twinkle stars quilt - on his bed.

Easy Street -  On my bed and no, I still have not completed hand stitching the binding down. Maybe over the next week I'll work on that.

Pink Scrappy X - Gifted to Aidan's PreK Teacher Ms. Dawn.

Log Cabin Quilt - scrappy.

Pineapple Blossom Quilt -  Gifted to Ms. Tammy at the PreSchool.

9 patch and hourglass - Gifted to Ms. Tori Aidan's PreK teacher (and Emmy's this year too!)

Bricks and Cornerstones -  Given to my nephew Charlie.

Kaleidoscope - Graduation quilt for my niece Jillian.

Nabby's Dowry - sew along. My quilt from leftover HST's from a quilt a couple of years ago.

Boo Quilt. Made from cookie cutters and started last September 2012 when my Mom was down. Finally finished this year.

Strawberry pinwheels. Leftovers made into a little blanket for Emily's cow Strawberry. Hand quilted stars in the open blocks.

64 patch star given as a Christmas/birthday gift to Papa Andy. Made this year with the RSC Challenge.

 Checkerboard quilt - made last year with the RSC Challenge. Handy to have for a quick gift if needed for a baby to come.

Coin Quilt. Will be a baby gift in February.

Firecracker quilt - QOV gifted to a grandson of Papa Andy who was injured in Afghanistan this summer.

Apple Quilt - started in September with hand applique of the apples (from a coloring page). Hand quilted and finished today! Emily's feet are in the photo - she had to see what Mommy was doing.

 I guess those little bits of time sure do add up in the sewing room! Hoping that I am as successful next year in getting a few quilts completed and a bunch of new ones started.

I love seeing how much you've accomplished this past year. I'm thinking I might just do a top 13 of '13.

They are all beautiful quilts. You have been very, very productive! I need lessons in using those little bits of time. Mine just don't seem to add up the way yours do!

Ellen said...

Lovely quilt really did accomplish a lot in 2013!!

Quilter Kathy said...

That is amazing what you accomplished in one year!
Such a wonderful pile of quilts!

Kristie said...

Amazing! Loved the quilt show!

Kathy ... aka Nana said...

What a delightful quilt show! You were certainly very productive in 2013! I, on the other hand, wasn't as productive as usual ... A lot of life happened ... and it took a lot longer to piece,that storm at sea (not to mention having to rip out and restitch - but I'm not complaining!). I'm going to hope that 2014 will be a more productive year quilt-wise. And I'm certainly looking forward to seeing all the quilts you make in 2014!
