My list of quilts to make in 2011 seems to be growing by the day! I even met with a friend today to discuss my first commissioned quilt. It will be a t-shirt quilt, and I think it will be a nice break from using a pattern. It is also inspiring me to finish my t-shirt quilt and possibly throwing in some denim from old jeans too.
Also on my list is a sampler quilt in black and white, 2 quilts which have been promised to others, something using a jelly roll and a new one for Daniel as we are planning on moving him to a twin size bed.
I am excited to have more experience and a tad more confidence as another year begins. I hope to really knock 'em out this year and be more diligent about finishing what I begin in a timely manner. Hopefully craft night will become an every-other-month event. Having the encouragement and inspiration of other crafters is loads of fun. Plus it makes me clean my sewing table more often!
A few months ago while browsing at Border's I came across this book:
and fell in love! The fabrics, the patterns and designs, the photography, the inspiration from everyday sights and objects all had me drooling. When I found it at the local library today, I had to check it out so I could study it longer. Most of it is a bit beyond my skill level, but a couple might be added to my to-make list. (Especially the one on the bottom middle of the book cover.)
