A Look Back 2018

Happy New Year friends!!

It's always good to look back and see the year in the rearview mirror.
Here are my quilt finishes in no particular order.


Rose of Houston- a challenge quilt using an antique block purchased at IQF. 
Our amazing 2018 quiltalong- Sweet Land of Liberty designed by Cheri Payne.

Brick Wall of Wabash Co- designed by Tara Lynn Baison. 

Our Humble Quilts little quilt quiltalongSajou.



A swap quilt .
Another swap quilt
One final swap quilt. (I'm seeing a theme here!)




Swiss Cross. 


Fall Festival was our 2017 quiltalong 
I was thrilled to be in AP&Q Designer spotlight this year!

And big life events in 2018 but not quilt related:

 A mission trip to Colombia that I feel completely blessed to have been able to go. (And look at those adorable girls in the dresses you made for them!)
My niece and I made a trip to Chico to personally hand out quilts, cash, clothing, blankets, coats, and a cheerful smile. I'm pretty sure we were blessed way more than the recipients.
Made a memorable trip to Italy with my beautiful daughter. 
I summitted Mt St Helens! (Hardest thing I've ever done after running a full marathon) 
 Proved to myself that all my muscle building workouts paid off by backpacking for my first time this summer!
Ran a 197 mile, 36 hour relay with complete strangers!


Wow! What a year! I look forward to 2019 and all the memories and quilts I'll be making!!

Happy New Year!
