My 2014 Quilting Year in Review

On the last day of the year I wanted to look back at all the quilts I made in 2014.  Last year I included just about everything I made but this year I am including only quilts, pillows, a set of fabric letters and an amazing set of fabric boxes depicting the 7 days of creation and 2 special dresses.

I made 13 minky blankets

15 T-shirt Quilts

17 Hanky Quilts

7 pillows

1 table runner
1 set of fabric letters
1 set of fabric boxes
1 Minky blanket set

10 Bandana Quilts

And 42 Rag Quilts

Plus I'm very proud of these two dresses I made for my grandbaby as well.

2014 was a good year for sewing!

Hankerchief Rag Quilts

I made my first Hanky Rag Quilt in 2011 and since then I have made a whole lot more.  Here are some of the quilts and pillows I have been honored to make using beloved hankies from my customers:

Hungry Caterpillar Rag Quilt

A while back my friend asked me to make a food quilt.  The fabrics had to focus on
 food since she worked in a food related business.  I looked around and food lots of foodie fabrics but they were so varied and different that I didn't know how I would tie them all together.  Then I remembered the Eric Carle Hungry Caterpillar collection of fabrics.  It was covered with all kinds of food in a lovely rainbow palette so it would be perfect to use in the quilt.  I threw in some coordinating dimpled minky on the front and backed it with green flannel.  I think it turned out so cute.  What do you think?

I plan to make another.  Maybe I will add red and orange minky next time...

A Week Off

I am a teacher but not a full time regular teacher.  I am a reading and math specialist so when the regular teachers scheduled conferences last week, I got the week off.  My custom quilt order list is already growing so I wanted to dig into that.  I set a goal for myself of sewing 5 of those custom quilts and I'm happy to say I met the goal.  Here are the quilts I made from Oct. 13th - Oct. 20th
