Happy New Year!

I debated whether to post pictures of all of my quilts for 2013 and decided, why not? Add some eye candy to the blog!  So here are all of my finishes for 2013 and they just happen to be all of the quilt finishes so far in my quilty journey :) I will be posting on each of them in future posts :) Here it goes:

This is a picture of the quilt prior to binding.  It is finished but I don't have a picture of the finished product yet.... This one was made to keep the hubbins warm :) and was my final finish in 2013!

20 finishes! I'd say not so bad since I just started quilting in May :) I think I am hooked LOL I have many already planned for 2014.  My first finish for the year is currently being quilted, the next two are already planned.... yep, I'm hooked!  Here's to a very productively quilty 2014!


  1. holy cow have you been busy! love the red commissioned quilt design!

    1. Thanks! The inspiration came from The Quilting Edge. The tutorial can be found here I of course put my own spin on it!

  2. Wow! 20 is a ton of finishes! Great job!

  3. Incredible! You've been super busy and I like how you've used so many different techniques!

    1. Thanks! As a pretty new quilter I find it so helpful to experiment, continue what I enjoyed and learn from the things that proved to be not so enjoyable ;)

  4. Wow! You were busy in 2013!! Love all your finishes! I especially love the wavy lines one! Visiting from Sew Fresh Quilts! Happy New Year!

    1. Creative Grids Split Seconds Ruler - gentle curves so it really wasn't that difficult to cut or sew but gives an amazing look! Happy new year to you too!

  5. Your quilts are so cool!

  6. Well done! What a prolific year! Looking forward to seeing what you will be sharing with us in 2014! Happy New Year!
