As we got things sorted out I returned to my quilting but never quite got back to blogging again....sooooo...Although I don't make New Year's resolutions....I so want to do better with this in 2013.
In a nutshell......this is what I have been working on over the past year.
This quilt was made from the "Labyrinth" pattern from Calico Carriage Quilt Designs. Great pattern giving four different size options.
Next I started on twin size quilts for my nieces twins, Anna and Aidan, aged 3 1/2" yrs.
Their baby quilts were the first quilts I had ever made.
Next were two flannel lap quilts made for my sons for Christmas. Loved the way these turned out......So soft and cuddly......used wool batting in these which was really nice to work with in combination with the flannels.
60" x 72" Loved the pattern...there is something about en pointe quilts that really appeal to me.
All four of these quilts I pieced and machine quilted.
Another highlight of my year was the opportunity to take a applique class with Karen Kay Buckley. She is an amazing talent and a wonderful teacher!! Bought scissors that she has developed.......best scissors ever!!
Another thing that I really wanted to purchase from Karen was her wonderful thread bag!! Unfortunately they sold out so quickly at the classes that I was not able to get one when she was in town.
So I put it on my Christmas list LOL and my son came through :)
Have to share a picture of some unexpected Christmas guests that arrived at our home Christmas evening!
Guess the buck stops here!!!
