Other Finishes for 2011

All of the quilts I completed in 2011.

2011 proved to be a very productive year for me. I had about the same amount of longarm business that I have had the past few years and I finished 20 of my own quilts. That is by far the most quilts I have ever finished in one year. Eleven of those quilts were UFOs from previous years. Those 11 quilts were finished by participating in a UFO Challenge over at Patchwork Times. The other 9 were quilts that I started and completed in 2011. They are pictured below.

 This quilt was actually pieced in December2010 and quilted and bound in January 2011.
It was a baby quilt for Amelia.

 I do not have many Valentine decorations so I made some table toppers for Valentines Day. I made 5 small toppers and am counting them as one quilt. 

My Art Bee had a "common object" challenge. At one of our meetings in the fall (October 2010) we each brought a common object in a paper bag and we drew a bag. We did show each other the object that was in our bag. My common object was a wire whisk. We were to make a small quilt using this object in some way. I simply used the whisk as a pattern for the flower petals.

 This quilt was made for the Bayside Quilters Challenge in June. The Challenge was Bear/Bare. Mine was titled "Bare Feet At The Beach." The photo is of my niece and daughter in 2008. I won for the category of "Best Use Of Technique." The method I used was Altered Photo Artistry by Beth Wheeler.

 This "Blooming 9-Patch" was started in a class at Bayside Quilters in April.

 I made this Lightning Quilt during Hurricane Irene the end of August. Thank goodness our electric never went out.

At Seven Sisters Quilt Guild we had a fabric exchange. We were each to bring 2 strips of medium/dark and 2 strips of light neutral fabrics for each participant. The strips were 6 inches wide and 9 of us participated. This is my finished quilt. I  finished it in September. I did not realize until right now that I never took her outside for her photo shoot. I will have to do that later.

This "Sew Simple Pineapple Quilt" was made for my newest great-nephew.

This quilt was made for a Christmas gift for my son's girlfriend.

It was, indeed, a very productive year for you--and the really great things is that they are all beautiful as well as finished!

Wow, you've been one busy lady this year. I may take inspiration from your organisational skills, and hope to achieve at least half of what you have done!! Great looking quilts, a real splash of colour.
