and it isn't mine.
Last Saturday, Ashlyn was ready to put the "backings on" her quilt. We finished the quilt that day, with Ashlyn on my lap. We did free motion quilting with hearts all over it. Ashlyn's good friend was sick that day, so Ashlyn decided that we needed to give Lilly the quilt. While I am truly proud that Ashlyn is generous with her sewing, I did not want her to give this quilt away. I asked her (more than once) if she was SURE that she wanted to send this quilt to her friend.

14 quilts for the year, mostly baby sized. (one not pictured, two backs are included in this mosaic.) I'm actually pretty surprised with how much I've accomplished this year in quilting. For this year, I had hoped to make a few quilts for charity (which only turned out to be one, but I did donate a couple that I made last year) make quilts for family and friends (check,) and make a few smaller quilts for myself (nope.) The idea of making them for myself was to try out new ideas, though, which I think I still accomplished with what I did make.
I was also a part of two different quilting bees this year. Both were a fun experience, but it's not something I am going to continue doing for now. Apparently, I didn't upload all of my blocks to flickr. I'm missing a few blocks, anyway.
Happy 2011, everyone!
