Quilting Recap of 2010 ......Part 1!

Last year was a busy year for me in terms of completing projects. I must admit, one of the positive perks of owning a quilt Shoppe is the motivation to finish projects, as they become displays for the Shoppe! A draw back, if there can be such a thing as a quilt Shoppe owner, is the lack of time to complete the projects started prior to my ownership! Although I have the opportunity to work with new fabrics all the time, the stash sits there patiently waiting for their time to be a star in a project! Sigh! Somehow, I think I can live with that, for now anyway! ;o)

I have mentioned that I had been a stitchin' fool in 2010 and it does not appear to be letting up! lol I have lots of new hand embroidery projects that I want to share with you, but first, allow me to catch up with 2010.

This cute little quilt is from a pattern designed by Stacy West of Buttermilk Basin called Cold Nose Warm Heart.

I made this quilt for a Secret Santa swap! I belong to a primitive Folk Art group and we had a gift exchange!

I just love Stacy West's patterns. They are just right for my prim taste! ;o)

I used some homespuns for the border and binding. It had been a while since I played with homespuns!

I just love them! Guess what is now expanding at the shoppe? lol Yea, the homespun collections! lol

I must blame this new expansion on Linda from Plain and Simple blog. lol When we met last year, she began re-igniting my passion for homespuns. Thanks Linda! ;o)

Thanks for stopping by! Wishing you a wonderful day! Cheers!

That's adorable! And don't feel bad -- I don't have a shop and I still can't get to the stuff in my stash either!
