Well another year is coming to a close and this is when I like to look back and remind myself that I did make time for my own personal projects. Since starting my longarm business I knew it would be important for me to make time for my own quilting and I am happy to see I'm still maintaining that balance. I quilted 92 client quilts this year which is a number I am very happy with as I schedule 10 a month for the 9 months that I work.
So here are the projects I was able to finish in 2015.
January - Simple batik place mats for my table.
April - Lug Nuts table runner that is now displayed at Kick Ass Quilt Shop.
June - Lori and I released a new Highway 10 Designs pattern called Detour. It is a table runner and four place mats.
June - I made a fun quilt using Stonehenge Oh Canada fabric using our Highway 10 Designs Quarter Sections pattern.
July - Used a Bali Pop called River Rock to make a Popsicle Sticks quilt.
August - Star quilt using bright batiks. I really wanted to make this quilt but had no plans for it. Then in September my cousin was diagnosed with breast cancer so I knew right away it was meant for her and sent it to her for a surprise.
November - Lori and I published another Highway 10 Designs pattern this year and this one is called City Slicker.
December - Needed a quick project to work on at our guild retreat (remember I don't have any UFO's) so made a baby Quarter Sections quilt.
December - This is my favorite quilt of the year, my Butterflies quilt by Laundry Basket Designs.
I found the perfect spot to hang it, right over my bed.
December - Then the last quilt of the year was my Fair Isle Quilt by Freshly Pieced. Since finishing it on Christmas day it now has a permanent spot on my couch for the winter.
So 10 finished projects is not too bad for the year. I have a few projects in the works but the one thing that I'm looking forward to the most in the new year is teaching longarm quilting! A new year and a new adventure!!
Happy New Year and thanks for visiting my blog! I wish you all the best in 2016!
