2012 Wrap Up

I fell in love with aprons after making one for my friend's daughter for her first birthday.  I decided to put them in my Etsy store... but I found that they are very time consuming!  You can find the pattern at Sew Sweet Patterns.  I made a lot of these this year, including 8 for a dance recital.  They were adorable!

This was a BIG firsts quilt, first attempt at wonky chevrons, pattern design, free motion quilting (triangles).  I just dove in and went for it.  It was for one of my dearest friend's Jessi's baby adoption.  We didn't know girl or boy, unfortunately, the quilt went a little girly and the baby is a boy!  I want more of this fabric, Maya by Leah Duncan, its mostly sold out! 

Another baby quilt, baby Jaxson's Deer Valley and some Lions and Tigers from Ed Emberly.

Round Robin with Knoxville Modern Quilt Guild.  (So glad that Emily found me via Facebook and my Etsy shop and invited me to a meeting.)  Its exciting to have Knoxville friends to talk fabric and quilts with.  (All my fabrics were pre-washed.  Do you pre-wash?)  Decided on the feathers for my center.

Wonky Star Mug Rug for my cousin Mandi who graduated from FSU with her Masters!

Lanyards for Celeste and my mom and the teachers at Central.

Pot holders for Terri and her friends in CO.

Zipper Pouches for Christmas gifts.

And lots of other things in between but I'll share those soon enough.
