This year I finished 12 quilts and two tops. Seven of the quilts were donated and the two tops will become donated quilts. Three quilts were gifts and one was sort of a commission/gift. One quilt was for me. I also made three doll hospital gowns, two sunglass cases, two cosmetic bags, and three blocks for donation. And I helped my granddaughter make a quilted pillow in her first sewing experience. There were a few other recent projects--holiday sewing--but I'll keep this list mostly quilt-related.
Here's a quick view of each one. You can click on the title for the link to the blog post, which will also have attributions and other details about the quilt.

WORKS IN PROGRESS
I'm including these tops because they represent a significant part of my sewing year. They are made from almost all of the blocks I made throughout the year for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I made a total of 88 blocks. There are forty in each of these quilts and the remaining 8 are in the pink and purple quilt above. As you can see, they are basted and ready to quilt. (October/November)
So that's my year, and a good representation of the kind of quilting I like to do--mostly for donation, but some for gifts and a bit for myself. It's been a good quilting year. Can't wait to see what comes of quilting time in the new year.
Over the next few days, I'll link these up with the next linky parties at Sew Fresh Quilts, Wendy's Quilts and More and Confessions of a Fabric Addict.
Happy New Year to all!
