(Update Jan 8, 2012. DeeDee wins the “count” giveaway. See my post announcing the winner. Thanks.)
It’s been exactly one year since I first learned to quilt. You can see my post here.
The sewing part was easy. I had been sewing since I was a teenager. Many moons ago. The quilting part, uh well, that wasn’t so easy. Fear of cutting off my hand gave me lots of pause moments. And second was the mystery of all the different feet attachments to my “dust collecting” sewing machine.
But thanks to quilt books and magazines, the net, especially You Tube, I managed to quilt quite a few things over the last 12 months.
I wanted to capture 2011 in photos for my records. So next year, hopefully I can look back at the beginning to gauge how far I progressed. I will show you the most memorable First’s. And then you will see “collections” of things I made. I tried to put them in groups to reduce the number of photos.
My Walk Down 2011’s Quilting Lane.
First item made. Folded Star Trivet.
First finished quilt top. Drunkard’s Path blocks.
First item quilted. Dresden Plate Wall Hanging.
My Proudest Moments.
And now, on with The SHOW!! 2011 In Photos…
Doll quilts and pillows.
More doll pillows and bedding.
Mug rugs, table mats, play mats.
Odd and ends.
The LAST items made.
And who can forget all those 4 1/2″ scrap blocks!! I made 338 of them. And used up quite a few.
It was a very productive year!!
I will let you guess. Not counting the individual scrap blocks, can you guess how many sewing/quilting items I made in 2011?
The 1st person to guess correctly (or coming the closest) wins a prize. I will select one of my handcrafted items and mail it off to you.
How many sewing/quilting items did I make in 2011? Post your answer in comments. Thanks much!!
