Review of 2011

Projects finished in 2011

Finished tops, waiting to be quilted
Works in Progress
from left to right:
Joseph's coat quilt along
Tessellation quilt
Hexagon quilt
Blogger's BOM
scrap quilt
I hope to have above quilts finished by the same time next year! I just need determination and willpower not to start too many projects along the way.

There are a few more but I wouldn't call them "works in progress" as I haven't worked on them in a long time. Maybe they should be called "works abandoned". 

Wishing you all a wonderful and happy New Year ahead with hopefully lots of inspiration as well as lots of time to stitch.

Bye for now.
