Sara's Year in Review

These posts seem to be all the rage today, so I'm jumping on the bandwagon. It is a great way to put the year's work into perspective. Here they are, my quilts of 2009:

For starters, and mostly because 10 quilts don't make a nice even mosaic, here is the first finish of the year. This one was a pretty big deal for me because it was my first time using free motion quilting.
It opened up a world of possibility for me and hence the next 9 were produced...
They all have a special place in my heart because they've all taught me something very important about quilting and patience. If I had to pick a favorite it would be crazy carnival. That one definitely stretched me to my outer limits so for that reason and also the color combo, it tops my list of 2009 quilts. Thanks so much for all of your encouragement throughout the year. It means so much to have you along for the ride!

My to do list for 2010 is quite lengthy and coincidentally, I have more than enough fabric in my stash to accomplish it with. Did I just say that?!

Happy New Year, everyone!

Happy New Year.

Lovely! 10 in one year...that's great! I love the pinwheel and the center bottom one!

Donna said...

You did so great! I have been scrolling through the awesome mosaics out there and feeling a bit thin! But inspired as all get out to imagine what I'll be able to post in a year end round up in a few years.

Patience, grasshopper, patience.

Hope you had a lovely New Years. Open House at ours tomorrow. I wish you could join us and bookend the holidays with us.
