2011 recap

I'm sure by now, you've seen tons of mosaics from other bloggers recapping their sewing successes in 2011.  Unfortunately, I won't be one of them!  I made much too much to even begin to put it all on a mosaic (or two or three) so I thought I would instead just list my finishes:

20 "Ladies" Quilts
2 Crayon Quilts
24 Mug Rugs
12 Pincushions
7 Lap Sized Quilts
1 Baby Quilt
44 Doll Sized Quilts or smaller
3 Lap Quilt Patterns
4 Coasters
12 Hot Pads
12 Felted ornaments
4 - sets of Bitty Blocks
4 Size 3 Kids Outfits
1 Magazine Publication

Whew......and then I wonder why I don't read so much anymore?  Who has the time????

You might like to share in some of my 2011 favorites:

Gloria #7 in The Ladies Series

Mug Rug or Mini Wall Hanging

"To you - From me"

5 Pleated Pincushions

"Color Play"

"Who's Katy?"

"Dreamin"

"Wild Flowers"

"Over the River" - Finished

"Lunch??"

Sweets for Rachel

"When you wish upon a star......"

DQS11 Angel Quilt #4

A Charley Harper Christmas

"The Gift"

And last of all:

"Love the Beach"

Wow!  There were more than I thought and I probably missed a few in there too!  I hope I didn't bore you.  Sometimes it's fun looking at that old stuff again.....even for me!  lol

I have tons of ideas for 2012!  Lately, I have pulled out the solids again, so we'll see what happens!  I hope you'll stick with me through this process.  I so appreciate each and every one of you!

You've got such a happy quilting style. The colors and the feel to your quilts are so much fun!! Wonderful job last year!

Sandra said...

You are so incredibly talented. I would have a hard time picking my favorite three or five out of what you've done. I absolutely love them all. As someone with absolutely no drawing ability, I know your quilts are far beyond anything I could even attempt. I'll continue to enjoy yours!

Rettabug said...

Hey, I thought that I was your favorite!!!

That is one impressive body of work for one year, Carol. Such variety, too. Some of them I don't even remember seeing, like the little square quilt, 4th up from the bottom!
They are ALL just wonderful! What's next?????

Hugs,
Rett

Adore your work! Thanks for the photo recap.

Poppyprint said...

I know it's all possible because you are a vampire and require no sleep. Right?

Your Charley Harper cardinal is one of my favs. I still wish you'd do a mosaic of all your ladies so it looks like a yearbook page. It would be hilarious!! Congrats on an incredible year, Carol!

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

This post was great fun and you KNOW I'll be here to see everything you do in 2012.

Connie/OH said...

Love each and every project that you do. I got my copy of Australian Homespun magazine in the mail from Erica's today and have been drooling over that quilt ever since. I didn't realize there would be directions and patterns for making it too! I am SO going to make this!

Hi! I love your works and I'm happy you showed some of them again! Your 'simple' warm quilt is also beautiful and just perfect for your living room! It's the same here - till Christmas quite warm but now we are feeling so cold!
