2011 in review.....

I'll start with the total successes, the finished quilts.  17 in all, 3 done totally on domestic machine, 2 partially done on domestic and all the rest done on the longarm.  The are not to scale as Picasa3 scrambles them into different spots until you are happy with it and some of the large ones are small photos.
This group is the quilts started in 2011 but not finished.  Some are completed tops, some are waiting for borders.  I sold 3 of them as tops so there are 19 that I need to finish.  Add that to all of the ones from previous years that aren't finished and I'm still close to 50.  After I made the collage I went to the basement and quilted one of them, bottom row, second from the left.
I will choose the binding today and sew it on.  I hope this year I can get the bindings done soon after the quilting and not end up with a pile like I had last year.

I was feeling pretty humble when I saw the first picture of 17. Then I scrolled down and saw the rest. They are really beautiful and proof of your creativity. I'm looking forward to see what you do in 2012.

You had a fantastic year and it was fun to watch all those quilts come together!

Pat said...

You have been a busy woman all year, I see. I love them all. I think that I only have four quilt tops to be finished. I also have 3 or 4 more quilts that are started but not finished. Hopefully soon I will be able to get back to my sewing.

Wow, you had a very productive year. I love your quilts - especially love what you do with color. I find your quilts very inspiring. Thanks!

I am just so very impressed with how lovely and how many you have made. I haven't even finished one full sized quilt this year, only one little one and 3 baby ones. My hat is off to you!

Judy said...

Wow - it is cool to see them all to together! It has been fun to see them as you have worked on them too. Congrats to you on your accomplishments in 2011!

Needled Mom said...

What a productive year you have had! It was fun to see them all together.

Vivian said...

Stunning groups of quilts, Wanda, whether finished or not quite yet.
I wish I could discipline myself to work on my quilting half as much as you do. You're a wonderful role model, showing us what can be accomplished without ignoring work and family time and quilts for wonderful causes like QOV.
Blessings to you as 2012 begins.

Connie said...

Wow Wanda! It is so neat to see all of the quilts together! I always love the vibrant colors/fabrics you use and your designs are always so neat. Congrats on a wonderful year of quilting!

What an impressive body of work. Being a fan of Westminster fabrics, I really like the one you quilted yesterday. Love your resolve on keeping up with the bindings; I have a stack of 8 or 9 tops to be dealt with when I get back to my "sewing world" in CA in March. In the meantime, I'll have to get excited watching others get their work done! LOL

A great year for you... and I hope that 2012 brings even more satisfaction. You are a total inspiration. Thank you!

Kristin said...

Wanda, you are so prolific and talented! I love seeing your quilts, and they look great displayed as a group. I read about the jelly roll 1600 quilt on your blog and recently bought my first ever jelly roll and just finished the top. I love reading your blog and seeing all the quilts you create. You are so good with color!

Happy New Year!

I love your quilts. They have so much color in them. I look at my stash and wonder why I stuck to the dull looking colors that I did for so many years. Thanks for sharing and brightening up my life.

Muddling Through said...

Wanda, you are impressive, as always. That is a beautiful body of work, and that it was all done in one year is even more impressive. I've enjoyed watching each and every one come together and your process along the way. I have learned so much from you, and I thank you for your generosity in sharing. Happy New Year!

jackie said...

Spectacular! What you need is someone who doesn't mind binding in exchange for quilting. That would get you caught up.

Purple Pam said...

All your quilts are beautiful. I have the same problem of getting the binding done. I like sewing binding, but for some reason, I am avoiding the larger quilts!

Sheila said...

They are all BEAUTIFUL and I have enjoyed watching you work through each and everyone of them. Thank you for sharing your year's quilting journey. I have learned so much.

Quiltdivajulie said...

Seeing all you do with color makes me so wonderfully happy. Thank you for sharing!

What a wonderful idea to make pictures and put all together like you did and catalog everything. It makes you accountable of all done the previous year. Think I need to be doing this. Tks for idea.
