Quilts in review 2011

January/ Feb--
 I started of the year with a facebook challenge. 
"Pay it Forward 2011:

I promise to send something handmade to the first 4 people who leave a comment here. In turn, those first 4 people must repost this and send something handmade to the first 5 people who comment on their status.

(The only rules are that it must be handmade by you and it must be sent to your 4 people sometime in 2011....)"






March--
I then tried my hand at free motion quilting but have not done it since

April--
I made a quilt for a friend for her baby shower

I made some mug rugs for my mom and her RV

May-- 
we got back from a road trip and did work in the garden over the long weekend.

June-- 
I sent off a baby quilt to some friends of ours in canada


I was very excited to get my critter quilt done!

July-- 
We had a new google wife added to our midst who was also 8 months pregnant so we had a baby shower for her!

I finished my black and white jelly roll quilt (all hand quilted)

I also managed to get a quilt done in a day!

I made a pillow mattress following a friends lead and ended up having to fix it too! (this has been one of my most popular posts on my blog.)

August--
I made a quilt on the request of a friend and named it Frog Frenzy

September--
I made some his and hers quilts for a friends daughters for her wedding.


And that was just about the last of it since I announced being pregnant.

October- 
I finished a wall hanging that I just realized I never gave away this Christmas.

I did manage to give the finished quilt to Daves mom. That one had given me a lot of trouble.
here it is on her bed with the matching pillows she made for it. 




I also managed to refold my yardage onto comic book boards but that is as far as I have gotten with cleaning up the quilting. 




So that is all I have done this year. The year had a good amount of quilts but I wish I could have done more. 
I feel kinda lost without quilting at times but I have no umph to go and start a quilt. maybe that will change!
I have to move all my quilting stuff to the basement to make room in the guest room for Zeke to move into as we will be needing the nursery for the next one.
