2010 Quilty Recap

Posted by Strlady at 12:50 PM
2010 was not at all what I expected when it comes to my craft. I started with the engines revving to go but work got in the way and I felt very uninspired during summer.

Still, I got a fair amount of quilting done.

All my Schnibbles got quilted in 2010 - I only have one straggler left to be bound which I will include among my first few projects in 2011.

Madeline, Sunday Best and Tagalong were started and finished during 2010. Picnic and Winter White were made in 2009 but were completed in 2010.

I made quilts for my favorite girls this year...
Hidden Stars went to my Lindsey in April and Little Bits of Love found it's way to Jessi in November.

Coming Soon arrived just in time to welcome my cousins first child, Camila Victoria in September.

I was able to kick out a few tops that were sitting around for over 10 years begging to be finished. It's a Jungle Out There, Compass Stars and The Bounty all were quilted and bound in 2010! Yeah, for reducing the UFO pile!!

And then there were the last two of the year. I actually had not posted about these since they didn't get bound until early December.

Bread and Butter could have been the UFO of the year,
but I found a second wind in Fall and got her completed.

She was quilted by Margaret who did a wonderful job taming this wild beasty.
It got ALOT of use during Xmas.

Everyone seemed to want to throw it over themselves and enjoy the warmth of the flannel backing. The colors look great on the sofa too!

Short Story was started while in my summer slump and I was surprised that I actually finished it
just as summer ended.

I love this quilt. Love Love Love it. Mary quilted it with a design that just goes perfectly with the fabric. It's MY first quilt. The first quilt I claimed as mine.

I have other quilts but those are more house quilts. Quilts that belong to my house, but this one is mine. The batting is a dream (I wish I could remember what I used) and it has the perfect weight.

I finished one more top in 2010 but I decided that I will not count it as a 2010 finish because  it has not been bound. Quilted, but not bound. As soon as I get the last stitch on it, I will  call it finished.

A few other WIP that move onto 2011. Opening Day and Two Piece Puzzle were started in 2010 and become a priority for 2011. I can't wait for these to be finished but there is one more that was started and never blogged about. I don't even have pictures yet.. I am making my daughter her wedding quilt. I'll have more details next week since I'll be heading to my guild's Retreat this weekend and will be working on it almost exclusively.

So... that was my Quilty year. Next up.. Goals for 2011 (which I already started talking about above).

You had a very productive year, and made some wonderful quilts. I totally understand your feelings about Short Story, there IS a difference between a "house quilt" and a "my very own quilt".

Thanks for the recap!

I hope your guild retreat is fun in addition to being work!

It's nice to see the replay of your quilts over the past year! You did wonderful work with all of your projects... and I have to say that I really love Bread and Butter... I remember when you showed it earlier in the year! My favorite!!!
