Here's to 2010!
I sure felt like I'd accomplished more than 10 quilts in 2009. In my defense though, I had pieced at least 2 large sized quilt tops that are still to be quilted. I'm currently working on quilting one of those two and the other is on the list to be completed next. So, those will be included in the completed quilts of 2010 group. lol.
In the next week or so I'm going to participate in another "Oh Fransson" quilt along. I just LOVE the look of her quilts. :) In fact the "Mix Tape" quilts that I've pieced 3 of in 2009 and helped my mom piece at Christmas this year are her design. I'm planning on using Jelly Rolls in pastels and vintage sheets for the blocks. Since the first quilt along I participated in I've become a huge fan of the vintage sheets. I'm totally loving the total 70's vibe they have. :) I'm kinda missing that avocado green stove and oven I had in Corpus Christi! I knew then they'd be in vogue again someday. lmao.
So in the first week of January I made the adorable baby quilt posted below. I thought I'd give it as a gift, but I think I'll be posting it for sale instead in my Etsy shop. I'm not sure that the recipient would have appreciated it. You know the type...
I turn 40 tomorrow. I'm not sure I'm ready for it.
