Review of 2010

At the beginning of 2010 I decided that I was going to post every day on my blog.  I missed one day when Comcast was having problems and I was too lazy to go to the library or coffee shop to send my post.  I kept thinking that the internet would come up at home and it didn’t until the next day.  I do feel good that I almost accomplished my goal.

I made several quilts during 2010, several purses/tote bags and many little projects like pillowcases, Kindle covers, Candle Mat, Mug Rug, and a few small quilt projects.  I also made a bunch of Click-It bags.

I taught a lot of classes.  I had more than 40 new quilters complete my beginning machine piecing class and really feel good about helping create that many new quilters.  I taught a purse class every month and for the first time taught at the Georgia Quilt Show.  I also taught at a seminar in Las Vegas – teaching a quilt that I designed.

It would be hard to pick my favorite project of the year so here are a few of them.  First is my Gone With the Wind quilt that I made for shop hop.  I have had offers to purchase this quilt but since I made it in my mother’s memory, I have decided not to sell it.

Next is the quilt that I designed and taught in Las Vegas.  It is called Nine Patch Surprise.

Here are some of the tote bags I made.

As you can tell, I love the Letty’s Bag pattern by my sister Robin.

Here is my favorite Christmas quilt I made this year.  Because of Christmas in July I make one or two Christmas quilts a year. The second one is another favorite.

I almost forgot – I finished the dog quilt this year.  It is another favorite.

I am looking forward to finishing up a lot of UFO’s in 2011.  Happy New Year to all of you.
