2011 - The Year of the Finished Project


As I tried to figure out what to write to close out my blog for 2010, I realized that I did not have enough fabric finishes to fill up a photo collage, like so many others were doing.   Was it because I hadn't finished anything or because I hadn't kept track?    I think it may be a little of both.

But I haven't learned how to do all of that fancy stuff, like photo collages that are links.   Then I saw the index page that Elizabeth at Such A Sew and Sew made to log her finishes last year.   I realized that a list that links to the finishes, as I post them on my blog, made perfect sense to my list crazy brain.   I am all about lists.    I make lists for everything and I even have a list of my lists.

She generously offered the use of her button and gives instructions on how to make a link back to the index to post on your blog.    Thank you so much Elizabeth.      I am sure that I could have thought of something so profound yet so simple, if I wasn't busy with all of my lists.

So here goes.

January Finishes

  1. Yellow Brick Road - Finished on January 25, 2011 - This is for my sister Jennifer. 
  2. Red & Black Mug Rug - Finished on January 30, 2011 -  Machine Applique project with TAS(Tallahassee Applique Society)
February  - No Finishes :(

March Finishes

3.        Flying Machines - This quilt was given to my grandson David on his 9th birthday.   It was 6 hand embroidered flying machines and 6 machine pieced blocks, quilted on the domestic frame with a dark blue varigated King Tut Superior  thread.   It was finished on March 9th, 2011.  
Happy New Year,

April - No Finishes

May - No Finishes

June - No Finishes

July - A Quilt of Valor - A group quilt by my Thursday evening Sit n Stitch.   It will be donated to the national organization that gives quilts to our service men and women that have been wounded.   I love the colors, and it was a fun project.

August - Burp Cloths for my grandson Wyatt -  Picture to come shortly.
 A Girl Can Get Tired of Diamonds -  This turquoise diamond quilt is hand pieced, using the English Paper Piecing technique and it was 15 years in the making.   Glad to get this one done.

September - Little Boy Blue  - I made this quilt for a friend of mine's grandson.   He is the sweetest little boy.   Can't wait to see him wrapped up in it at Thanksgiving.

October - No Finishes

November - Beading Projects -  This is my new favorite obsession.   I hesitated to add them to this list, but I realized that they are part of my creative productivity and thus should be chronicled here.
