So over 2011, here's to a Fresh Year!

Happy New Year! Hope you all had a good night and that 2012 is full of joy!

I only started quilting in August 2011, shortly before I started blogging :)
Here's a round up of what I've made since then:


1. Nanny's Yellow Brick Road Quilt 2. My first QAL, Sampler Quilt 3. Does Not Compute Quilt 4. Terrain Lattice 2.0 5. Diagonal Stripes HST Quilt 6. Drunkard's Path QAL 7. Terrain Lattice Quilt 8. Dotty Simple Stripes Quilt 9. Dead Simple Quilt 10. and 11. Easy Bricks Quilts - two halves!

So that's eleven quilts! I'm pretty happy. They're not perfect and there's so much I have to learn but most were gifts and all were well received so I'm glad about that!

I've made a bunch of other stuff since the summer too:


I've had loads of fun making and exploring all the great tutorials out there. Apologies but I'm way too lazy to link to the posts about these makes but if you want to know more about anything let me know :)

Thank you to everyone who has supported me, given me encouragement, tips and for all the inspiration you blogging folk give me!

I'm hoping to learn even more this year and have about 6 quilts on my to-do list already! Actually it was 7 but since Christmas I've been busy and have one basted and ready to quilt. It's a gift for a friend's 50th. So far I'm loving it but no pictures yet I'm afraid - a girl has cleaning to do don't you know! I'll post about it soon because it's a fun one :)

I'm linking up to Craft BudsLily's Quilts and Love Affair with my Brother:
