I love looking back, and what better way than through a mosaic. It was hard to pick my favorite projects because there were so many. I got a little obsessed; okay a lot obsessed. I quilted over 15 quilts and made countless other smaller projects from pouches, to pillow shams, crayon rolls to wall hangings and a little bit of fun and frustration in between.

Top Five Projects:
Retro Bento: I loved working on this quilt...the fabrics and the pattern work so well together and even though the quilting broke Astrid 1 I was able to finish it up with Astrid 2. This quilt is staying on the couch.
Stashtacular: What a crazy month that was! So many tutorials and fabric swapping...great times with some great ladies. And it brought to life my commitment to no more mindless fabric buying which I am happy to say I pretty much stuck to for a whole 6 months. Lots of money saved and lots of fabric used up.
Concrete Cabins: My first tutorial and first steps into modern quilting. I have plans in 2012 for making another one of these but with a different layout and color palette.
Grandma's Blue Sparkle Quilt: My first quilt on commission and what a beauty it turned out to be. Grandma loved it, I love it and even Quilt Story loved it enough to feature on their site for a day - what a thrill all around.
Long Arm Quilting: Learning to long arm was a rush and I am still a newbie but it is so much fun and gratifying to take it in and paint with thread. Something I will be doing more of this next year.
I could go on about each project I did this year but it would take all day to write! But the best thing about this year is all of you...every comment I got made me smile. Every person who linked up with Eat, Grow, Sew made my day. And all the love comes straight through the internet and right to me. I love this and plan on coming through 2012 with even more projects....including my first full on pattern and a quilt this month from start to finish.
I'll be back with my goals for 2012 but until then enjoy your friends and family because they are the reason we sew! What were your highlights of 2011?
