What a great sewing year!! I wish I would have done as much as 2011, but I paced myself... I really enjoyed every project, the bonds and friendships I've made with bee members and flickr/IG buds! I adore this hobby, it's my passion. Before I discovered flickr I thought I was the only fabric obsessed quilter out there! Thank you all for your support and friendship! Here's to fabulous crafty 2013!

The Cherry Christmas Quilt

Here it is- nice and fresh from the dryer!
I'm pretty stoked on myself for finishing 3 seasonal quilts!

and now

I just adore all of Aneela Hoey's beautiful fabrics for Moda. And this one may be my favorite next to Little Apples

I used the Katie Quilt Pattern by For the Love. I just adore it! It was super quick and very simple!
I'm kind of sick of stippling as of late and really would love to learn/try new quilting designs, so I winged it on this one. I tried some loopy-loops. It didn't "crinkle" as much as I'd hoped, but it works. I just LOVE a crinkly quilt!

Aside from sewing Christmas gifts, I've been working on this awesome Chopsticks quilt. This pattern, by Miss Julie Hartman, has been on my to-do list for quite some time now. The cutting took ages only because I opted to use a ton of different prints. And I'm pretty proud that I did not duplicate any fabric in this one! It makes a great i-spy kinda quilt! The top is completed and I am dying to baste and quilt it, but sadly have to put it on the back burner- BOOOOO!
