Say Hello, Wave Goodbye

Way back in January I made a couple of Quilting Aims for myself.  I didn't get there with all of them but I did stick to Number 1 which was most important to me - Quilt because it makes me smile not because it is one more thing on my to do list.  I have really enjoyed this fabulous hobby this year.  I have also made some great bloggy (and real life) friends and am chuffed by how many of you follow and comment on my posts - so thank you!


I didn't make all the quilts in my head because 324 is a bit much in one year but I did make some quilts, quilt tops & knickers that I and thankfully the people I gave some of them to (not the knickers) really like.


2011


I only have 2 aims for 2012 - continue to quilt because I love it and use up some of the fabric I love that I have been hoarding.  My work in progress list is down to 4 which is unheard of for me so I am going to spend the next couple of days planning some new quilts so expect a post on that and a giveaway as part of my "Year of the Stash" project for 2012.


Linking up with Fresh Sewing Day on Lilys Quilts.

  9. Snazzy knickers! I think they will generate more interest than your quilts which are also snazzy!

  15. What a productive year and gorgeous quilts (and knickers!) Your last quilt with the HST in red and linen reminds me of the similar one I have had in my WIP stash for about a year. Oh my. Talking about aims for 2012. ;-)

  17. fabulous finishes for 2011 - and fabulous knickers - oh to be skinny enough to wear a pair of those!! (bog catchers and granny knickers now my norm - but plans to drop a few sizes are in the planning stage!)

  18. Love your knickers! And your quilts! You seem really good at putting the colours together and not afraid to try different palettes! Well done - a successful year even if there are not 300+ quilts finished..
