2017 Finishes

2018 is here and I'm excited to get started on all of my projects.  But first, one last view of my finishes from 2017.  For me, it was quite the productive year.

First the larger quilts - Playful is twin bed sized and Christmas Holly, Be Bold, Happy Birthday Mom and Goldilocks are couch sized.  All the rest are wall hangings.

It is interesting (to me) that so many of these quilts were QALs or blog hop related.  There are four original quilts there - Sunset Flight, Birthday Quilt, Kindness & Goldilocks).  For the others, the blocks were part of a QAL and in most cases, I designed my own setting.  (There is one more finish not shown since it is part of some secret sewing.)

Contrast this with the minis and table runners below.  Only 7 of these came from others designs - the remaining 18 are all mine.

In addition, I created a number of new bag tutorials , some of which are pictured below.

Finally, I made plenty of bags, notebooks and pillows.  I posted about the pillows I made in 2017 here but am including a photo for completeness.  5 of these are original designs.

Thanks for reading through my projects of the year.  Now on to 2018!

Have a wonderful day! Patty
