2009 Finishes!

It’s time I caught up with my blogging. Now that 2009 is rapidly coming to a close, I need to take stock of what I accomplished this year!img_3905

The most important completions for me recently are the two Quilts for Kids quilts that I finished and sent off before Christmas. The blue one was made from the quilt kit that Quilts for Kids sent to me. The Roman Stripes pink quilt is one I whipped up from scraps and sent along with the blue one.

I also made a set of 4 quilted place mats for my good friend, Kathleen. She chose the fabric from my florals and I backed and bound them in a green blender so they are reversible.

Oh, and I almost forgot the wall hanging that I made for my mother’s birthday in January. You can read about it here.

I think that’s all that I actually started and finished this year. Tomorrow I will list all of the quilts that I’ve started this year but remain WIPs. When you see that list, you’ll know why I haven’t had time to finish anything else. 🙂
