2013 Quilts & Finishes

Looking back at the quilts I made this past year, it doesn’t look like I made as many as in 2012, or 2011. I definitely made fewer wall hangings.

Many of the quilts I finished this year are larger than in years past. There are two queens (11 Year Purple Quilt and Kathy’s Ohio Stars). I also made two custom quilts (orange chevron and Purple Chevron baby quilts). I made two lap quilts (Blue Irish Chain and Water & Sun) The few wall hangings I made were for my craft sales.

Working for other people has caused me to branch out in my colors. There is a lot more orange here than last year for sure!

I also realized, I’ve started a few hand piecing projects that will just take a while to finish, namely a paper pieced style hexagon quilt.

I’ve been distracted from quilting some by beginning to make some of my own clothing. Here are a few finishes, all of these are from Washi dress pattern. I’ve also made a couple of knit shirts and a knit skirt.

In 2014, I’d like to learn to use a serger, finish a baby quilt I started, make a knit shirt or two, finish at least one of my quilts in progress, finish two sweaters currently in progress, and finish a half-done casserole carrier.
