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.
