At least in terms of quilts it was! Although 2011 cannot compare with 2010, when I finished 19 quilts!! In 2011, I finished, or almost finished 16 quilts...that's nothing to sniff at in my book! Come with me for a look back...
There is just something about a circle quilt...I think I've made at least one circle quilt every year for the last ten years! This is one of my favorites.
Max was coming to visit for Easter and I didn't have an Easter quilt...I do now! It's my original pattern, quite pleased with how it turned out...Max was not that taken with it...but perhaps his baby sister will be this Easter! She arrives on the 12th of January...excited doesn't even begin to describe me!
The blue and cream quilt above was started years ago as a thank you gift...it was finally "aged to perfection" and was finished this past summer.
Years in the making, my Lost Socks quilt was finally bound and has been used over and over...it's a family favorite!
Not my finest quilting hour...I made the quilt on the left first, had it quilted and bound and it was only when I took a picture of it that I noticed the HUGE mistake!!! Too late to do anything about it, it's now MY newest Christmas quilt to myself. The quilt on the right was my second attempt, and even though I tried to mess it up I got it right! It was my gift for our quilt group exchange this year so it had to be right!
Another set of twins...the quilt on the left has been quilted and the binding is ready to be sewn down...the flimsy on the right is waiting on me to run to JoAnn's on a Saturday to buy batting!! Both quilts will be finished this weekend...and in the mail on Monday...gifts for two precious baby girls!
Another Christmas quilt! Another rut? Possibly, but Christmas quilts are so fun to make! My double wedding ring quilt was finally quilted and bound after sitting in my "to-do" basket for about 12 years or so! I can't even remember exactly it's been so long...
An American Hero Quilts flimsy was pieced and sent off...our troops may be out of Iraq but they're still in Afghanistan, still being wounded or worse, and American Hero Quilts still needs help making quilts to be given to those returning wounded soldiers and Marines.

Megan's quilt...quilted and bound and she is probably curled up in it right this very moment. Megan, who asked me to HELP her make this quilt, didn't have any idea how to sew...but failed to mention that...and now she has asked me to HELP her make another quilt but this time she promises to do ALL of the sewing...we shall see!
Sixteen quilts - not too shabby! My "to-do" basket is still quite full but my New Year's resolution is to get it emptied out before summer...wish me luck! And I'll wish you a very Happy New Year!
