A look back 2016

This is one of my favorite colorwash wallhangings from 2016.  I like all of the ones I make but always have a few favorites.
This is my favorite large couch quilt from last year.  I quilted it on my regular sewing machine.  Here is the story on this one plus a look at the back.









This little quilt was a favorite from the time I started working on it.  I love the way the stars intermingle with each other.  It's story is on this post.

Oh, Wanda. I've been out of the loop for a few days. Didn't know you were having problems. Hope you feel better soon. Sending cyber hugs and positive vibes your way. Let someone else do the lawn cutting from now on. We need your quilt inspirations. Love your star quilt!

I've always loved the colours and pattern in your '16 squares/HST's) quilt; also knowing it's something I could have a go at and not beyond my capabilities. Hope you are feeling a bit/lot better today - take care :)

Wanda, so sorry to hear about your health issues. I'll admit that I've just been amazed that you do cut your grass, tend your yard, make quilts constantly, entertain other quilters, etc, plus spend great time with your own family!! You are an amazing lady and as I've said before, truly inspire me! I will be praying for you and your health. Thank you for keeping us updated and still even having posts from the past. I look forward to more inspiration and good health for you!

I had not checked in on your blog for a few days and was shocked to hear your news. I am thankful we have such modern techniques to "fix people up". I'm hoping your recovery goes smoothly and you are soon able to be quilting again. In the meantime, catch up on reading and dreaming of the next quilt! You are such a talented lady and an inspiration to so many of us.

Another set of breath taking art work. Your 'Look Back Series' are just what we need to see while you are resting. Your posts are good for testing my memory too, I just smile when I see your quilts that I REMEMBERED. (*._.*) I hope you are resting and not over doing.
