I can't believe it is the last day of 2014!

Wow! The end of the year is already here!??

Time to review the little amount of quilting that was accomplished in 2014.

This wolf quilt was for a donation to one of my guilds.  They provided the panels and the challenge.

After years of just sitting, I finally finished my daughter's Oriental quilt where she choose all the fabrics.  It has been on her bed all year now. 

This quilt was for the president of my other quilting guild.  Members made the blocks, a friend and I put it together, and I quilted it.  I think it came out beautifully!

Wow, was this just in February.  It seems so long ago.  This is an antique quilt that I quilted for a friend.  It was made by his grandmother or possibly even great-grandmother about 1930s. 

March- this delectable mountain is made from a Bonnie Hunter pattern- made years ago but finally quilted. 

This is "Science Project" that I made for a local quilt shop.  It is actually hanging sideways here.  Lots of fun and stepping out of my box for level of involvement of pattern.  I usually go for simplicity of piecing and one where colors simply fall into place without planning.  Not so on this one. 

This is one side of my first "official" two sided quilt.  It was donated to my son's school for a reward drawing. 
This is the other side, school colors of silver and copper along with the school mascot- a scorpion- and the school name "Cyber" Academy.  I had a lot of fun with it, hope the girl who won it is enjoying it!

It is sad that this is the best picture I have of this quilt.  I will have to get a better one.  It is one that I had in the closet for a long time.  It is panda bears that I quilted with a pantograph that I designed.  "Pandas" is available at
I finally got it bound and displayed this year??!!

Best picture I have...a quilt I worked on for a while, finished with the help of my mom and presented to a high school graduate. 

I made this dog pillow cover for our newest family member-already worn out long ago!  And he is much bigger than that now. 

Made for a special baby girl. 

These both went for a special little cowboy who joined the world in mid-December.

That is about it, not to mention all the quilting I did for others and that I did on yet to be bound donation quilts during shows where I demonstrated the Tin Lizzie quilt machine.  And that's only the finished ones, there are so many UFOs I can't hardly get into my quilting room!

There are more than I expected!  Probably will not get that much done in 2015...

I am hoping to squeeze in some block lotto blocks this morning before the 10 am (my time) deadline.  I think I can-if I can get a kid to come and baby sit the 50 pound puppy.

Wishing you all the best in quilting and in life in 2015!
Happy New Year!
