A Dozen in 2012
This is my latest quilt, bring my total of quilting projects for the year up to twelve.
Purple is not really my color, but much of this fabric is from donations. Also it is for the local pregnancy assistance center, and I think most girls of that age love purple. I hope it brings some happiness to someone who needs it.
I say “quilting projects” because most of them are not real, bed-size quilts. This year I made one double-size quilt, two teaching quilts (that are throw size), three baby quilts for the local pregnancy assistance center, and six lap quilts for the Veteran’s Administration hospital. I have posted pictures of most of them throughout the year, but I will repeat them (in no particular order) here.
I did venture into half-square triangles this year, but it appears I am a square-and-rectangle girl! I will have to try a circle next year! Also for someone who says she is not a big fan of purple – there was a lot of purple popping up in the quilts.
I have four works in progress, one of which I started last year, and three that I started this year. That’s a pretty good ratio of started-to-finished projects! I’m looking forward to increasing my output in 2013!
I had fun blogging this year, but even more, I have enjoyed finding so many wonderful blogs out there. WordPress had a writing prompt a few weeks ago – “What if you had to choose between blogging and reading blogs?” I would definitely choose to read blogs, because I get constant insight and inspiration from the many blogs I follow. Thanks to all of you, and please keep posting!
