Quilts of 2013

I really am amazed I was able to get anything done this year!  It was a strange year for me.  Just after New Year's, I made the neighborhood quilt from the BMQ guild row robin. I was diagnosed for a spinal tumor in January and had surgery to remove it in February.  I made it back to the sewing room in March (a little) and was back at work after Easter.  I managed to make a wedding quilt, a volunteer gift quilt,and two baby quilts in May and June.  I started a quilt for my granddaughter Saydee and my newest grandchild, her sister Aleena.  I ended up making three quilts for Aleena before I got Saydee's quilt finished.

I spent some of my free time last summer helping my daughter make and quilt a queen sized quilt for her bed.  I finished a quilt for my mother in law to keep her toasty and warm (last year she was without power for a few weeks after Hurricane Sandy).  I attended two great workshops with Malka Dubrowski and Jacquie Gering.  I made a quilt for my older daughter to use with some matching coasters (ha!).

After the baby came, I spent a lot of time babysitting for Saydee so that my daughter and son-in-law could visit the baby at the hospital (she is supposed to come home tomorrow-New Year's Eve!!).

Which brings us full circle after a full year.  May all your New Year's dreams come true!

I added myself to PlayCraft's Year in Review.  Click over to see what everyone accomplished last year.
