2011 In Review

2011 has been an amazing year in my crafting journey. I have considered myself a quilter since I finished my first quilt, but this past year, quilting has evolved from a fun hobby to a way to reduce stress, express my creativity and renew my spirit. Thank you for joining me as I continue to explore all that quilting has to offer.

Lessons Learned in 2011
·         I do not like working with templates.
·         When in doubt, start small.
·         Don’t bite off more than you can chew.

·         Blue Pillows
·         Drawstring Bags
·         Mother’s Day Gift Bags

Fresh Sewing Day


  1. Wow - I know it has been a "moving forward" kind of year as far as your quilting goes and that's really cool! I love that you are beginning to machine quilt & I know that will encourage you along. Your workmanship is always so lovely, and I'm pleased you enjoy sewing/quilting/good food as much as I do! Lovely projects!

  2. Cute quilts and "not quite quilts"!
