2014- It Was A Very Good Year

      I retired from my full time job on January 1, 2014.......I then spent the next 12 months doing exactly what I'd planned to do when I made that decision.  I slept past 5:15 am, I spent more time relaxing and as you can see from these pictures,  I spent more time sewing.

     My husband on occasion will say i'm out of control with the quilts I make and after uploading these 45 pictures I think he might be right.  2 of my best friends had mothers turn 90 early in the year so I made a quilt for each, I did a few for a quilt retreat I go to in May for a women's shelter, wedding quilts and the ones I had the most fun making, were the 3 I made for my daughter when she announced she was expecting her first baby.

     Not all quilts were bed sized.  I made table toppers,
runners and wall hangings.   I may have even made a couple dozen pillowcases for my local quilt shop for a local children's charity.

I just found your blog and love it! I'm hoping to retire at the end of 2015 and to start quilting. Your use of colors and fabric is wonderful. I'm looking forward to seeing more quilts that you make.
