With all my busy schedule I haven't stopped quilting, just stopped blogging for a while. I made 30 placemats, finished 2 quilts, made 4 quilt tops that I have to quilt yet, and a few birthday gifts.
The two patterns I used.
Some of the placemats were for Meals-on-Wheels and some for me to use at the cabin.
The two quilts I finished were from the Craftsy BOM for 2012. Amy Gibson made 20 squares and since I thought that those would make too large of a quilt I added 4 squares and made 2 quilts with 12 blocks each.

Quilt Number 2
I learned so much from doing these 2 quilts, I couldn't believe it. There were hexagons, curved seams, string blocks, off center log cabin blocks, and a new way to paper-piece. I really like the way she does paper-piecing. I learned to paper-piece a few years ago but her method was so much simpler and had great results.
Our Guild has a Quilt show every 2 years and this year I won a ribbon. I made a miniature twister heart and won third place for it. It was a great feeling since I have only been quilting for 6 years.
My miniature twisted heart.
It measures 12.5 x 12.5.
