With just one more day to this year, I am looking at all of the great accomplishments of this year and pondering what goals are realistic to set for 2015. It seems ridiculous to even speculate that 2015 could be anywhere as successful on the show quilt front as this past year. I still cannot fathom how well many of my quilts did, and how many high awards they brought home. Afterall, I just had my 5 year anniversary of getting my longarm in October. It has been a fantastic year at the shows -- My family is going to Europe next summer for 2 weeks; it was THAT good. The business did well. No complaints. Well, not about lack of work anyways. I guess if there is one thing to want more of in 2015 it is time. I have too many pans in the fire and just wish to get some things finished. But then, who doesn't?
Since I haven't quilted in 10 days, and won't for this week, I went thru pics to see what quilts I might not have posted during the year. I actually have 5 quilts done during the summer for a friend's book that will come out next year, but naturally, you have to wait until next fall to see them. Bummer!
But here's a few...
This is a Neimeyer compas quilt...lotsa ditching, and fun, pretty feathers.
Here's a baby quilt, a bit blurry.
Here's another very cute baby quilt. I did a number of these about the time I went to Houston. I came back from that trip in a black hole and haven't gotten back to things I was doing prior to leaving! I did intend to take another picture before mailing this home, but never did it.
A Christmas wall-hanging...
The owner had several embellishments for the tree and stars, and requested minimal quilting. Minimal doesnt always happen with me, but this is lightly custom quilted.
Have a great New Year, and come visit in 2015.
