Glancing back, 2011 was a very good year.

2011 - finished quilts and some of their backs

These are the quilts I finished in 2011. For me, this is a lot of quilts. I started quilting in March of 2010 and I started blogging in March of 2011, so some of you would have seen most of these quilts on this blog already. I want to thank all of you who visit my blog and flickr pages, providing encouragement and support - it is so fun and inspiring to be part of the quilting internet community.

2011 - Other things I made

Here are many of the other things I made in 2011. I have not included Quilting Bee Blocks in this group.

2011 - Wall quilts, swap quilts I sent

This group is mini quilts and swap quilts I made, as well as the mug rug I sent off. I see that I put the fabric basket I sent with the scrap swap in the group above, it seems that mosaic making is not my strong suit.

2011 - Things made for me

And the best are last, these are the things that my internet friends have sent to me over this year. Swap items, pay it forward gifts, bee blocks, and the wonderful pillow I won. Although things seem to take a long time to get to my house, I sure have received some wonderful pieces from wonderful quilters.

I hope that you have had a creative and fun 2011. I am looking forward to 2012 where we can all continue our quilting journey. All the best to you and yours for the new year!

p.s. I have linked up to Lynne's Fresh Sewing Day. I hope you visit there and check out everyone's projects.

Best,

Leanne

Wow! You have had a wonderful year. Looking at all the wonderful quilts you have made it's hard to believe that you've been quilting for less than two years.

I hope you have a wonderful 2012.
