2011 Quilt Review.

Time to review the quilts of 2011 and ponder on what 2012 will bring. I was thinking on the drive coming home that 2012 might be the year of the table runner for me. I have so many quilts, some table runners would be nice. But we'll see. 2011 started off finishing the above quilt, Pink Squares which was donated to the Queensland Flood Appeal.

A quick jelly roll quilt which was also donated.

Two quilts made for DQS#10 in March, one for me, one for my partner.

Blue and Green Askew Squares back in June.

And another askew block quilt. The Pink Askew quilt, cot sized made back in July. Only just given to friends new baby last month in Perth. It pays to have a baby quilt stashed in the present box for those occassions!

For the DQS#11 in August.

And Miss West's wedding quilt in September.

A queen sized quilt for our very own bed! Rainbow Squares was completed for the Naked Bed Challenge.

And the last quilt, finished in November, single bed sized. My favourite of the year I think, sewn with blocks from Around the Block 2. I'm in another block swap this year and I think I might have the ladies do the same block but a different colourway, red, orange and yellow maybe?

Writing this post has made me realize I don't have any photos of the Rainbow Squares Quilt all finished. It's hanging on the line now. I'll have to go take a photo. * edited to add - done! But realized I don't have a shot of the pink and purple strippy square quilt now! Have to go over to the friends place that one is at and photograph it!

Hullooooo! Long time no see! Hope all is well (I missed a few weeks of blog reading, so I might have missed some news here, sorry). Great review. I'm all for year of the table runner, but first I gotta finish at least one quilt for our bed. It's time.
