2012 Quilting review

Wow!  Here it is New Year's Eve already, and as the year comes to a close it's a good time to look back and see what's been accomplished.  This year I tried to keep a running list on the computer of Quilting projects and I'm surprised at all the quilting that got done this year.  Apparently I did quilt more than Awhile!

Place mats and small projects:
4 Valentine place mats and a table runner
10 Autumn place mats
Doe and Darts table runner from orphan blocks
2 flag place mats
14 pot holders
6 Christmas Stockings
Nine Patch Hearts table topper from orphan blocks

Three Vicki Welsh monthly color challenge quilts were completed:
Palancar Beach in January,
Ravel's Bolero in March and
Modern Rails in November. 
I started three others, but they didn't get to the finished stage.

This was my first year making small quilts or doll quilts. 
Kathleen Tracy's monthly doll quilt challenge kept me busy and I finished several: 
Alaska Homestead in January (a lap size quilt, but an adaptation of Kathleen's January doll quilt.)
Broken Dishes in February 
Bumblebee Garden a baby quilt inspired by Clarissa's Garden
Nine Patch in April 
Civil War Stars in June. 
Two Indigo Blue & White quilts in July. 
Almost Amish Doll Quilt in November.

Other quilts from internet blogs...
Mountain Trail from Lori at Humble Quilts
Beautiful Leaves (Bellefeuille) - blocks from the Alphabet Quilt from quilts by Cheri
Plain & Simple four-patch doll quilt from quilts by Cheri.

Four other baby quilts were made this year: 
Paddington Bear's Triangle Tricks for JA
Shirley's scraps four patch from orphan blocks,
Penny Lane - original design
Triangle Tricks for DK

Lap and Wall quilts:
In the Library - sandwiched and quilted UFO
All Hallows
Ghostly Gallery
Star of the East Advent Candles - original design
Watercolor Heart from grandma's old draperies
Blue Nine Patch from orphan blocks

Bed sized quilts:
Birds in a Midnight Sky - from orphan blocks (twin)
Finished quilting Double Irish Chain (queen)
Quilters Club of America Mystery Quilt 6 - Bittersweet (queen)

Reproduction patterns and quilts:
Bloomington Historical Society 1905 Haeg checkerboard quilt
Bloomington Historical Society 1905 Haeg doll quilt

I think that's all the finishes for this year.   I'll need to make a list of the carry-overs and works in progress so I can start the new year with a plan.  We'll see how long THAT lasts!

Happy New Year
