As we say good bye to 2011 and hello to 2012, it’s time to reflect back on the year past.
First, thank you to everyone who partnered with me to finish their quilts, 2011 was my best year ever for LAQ! I crossed the 400 quilts grand total mid year! My total for 2011 was 127 and 12 of those quilted were my personal quilts!
Look for my personal UFO Challenge next year, I’ll be posting pictures of my quilts in progress and shaming myself into finishing them!
This will be my 126th post! You can follow me on Facebook or Pinterest, too! I’ve been finding some awesome quilting ideas on Pinterest, so check out my pins!
Lots of batiks!
My personal favorite quilt of the year is the wedding quilt for my son, Drew and his wife Abby! You can read about that post here. Drew is also my tech support and own personal web guru! I really appreciate what he does for me, even though he lives in Florida!
It’d be hard to pick my favorite customer quilt from the 100+ that I did this year! It seems like my favorite is the one I just finished. Here’s a couple links for you to check out from this year. Celia’s Mystery Quilt
Mountains Wall Hanging
Blue and Yellow #3
Do you have a treasure in your closet? Part III
American Barn Quilt by Shelby
Christmas Wall Hanging #2
A benefit of blogging is the pictures! I now have a very good record of quilts for current and future customers to look at! My goal in 2012 is to post a picture of every quilt. I think I missed a few in 2011.
Thanks again for a great year and many blessings to you and yours in 2012!!
I keep finding pics for making coffee cozies! I think I’ll be making some soon! Check these out here.
Happy sewing! Linda
When I give my quilts to babies, I include a note to parents: “This is not an heirloom! Machine wash and dry. Use it on the floor, at the park or at a picnic! If you wear it out, I’ll make another one!”
I love it when they take me at my word! Here’s Zeke sleeping in the rocks while his parents and sister are rock climbing near by. He’s nestled in the rocks with his sister’s quilt (here’s a link to Zeke’s quilt) but that’s okay, it’s being used!
Hope you’re enjoying the final days of 2011 and getting some of your UFO’s checked off your list!
Happy sewing! Linda
Merry Christmas to all! Have a blessed day!
Isn’t this a great quilt for a little guy? This was a quilt I was able to get done this week for Wendy. Leo came along to pick out the pantograph and thread when it was dropped off for LAQ, so it wasn’t a surprise but he was very excited to hear it was ready to pick up!
Leo picked out Fern Meander for the pantograph. I love how it adds movement and texture like jungle leaves.
He also picked out rust Signature cotton thread which matched the rust inner border adding some contrast to the other fabrics and a little zing!
The batting is Quilter’s Dream 100% cotton select.
Merry Christmas to everyone!!
