2010 Reviewed and looking forward to 2011

Okay, So I have been seeing those cool mosaics popping up everywhere.  I love them!!  Unfortunately, I had no idea how to make them.  So I decided to remedy that situation this morning.  So about 2 hour later, (and lots of downloads to flickr :)  I present you with my 2010 quilts Mosaic :)  Isn't it fun!!

There are a few of my little projects not pictured but these are all the "quilt" quilts I made this year.

And once I learned just how easy these are to make (once everything is set up correctly) I decided to make another one.  This is a Mosaic of my Moda Bake Shop Tutorial Projects.  Designing for the Moda Bake Shop is probably my proudest quilting accomplishment of the year.  I am truly enjoying it and can't say how exciting it is to know that people out there in quilt world like my tutorials and are using them :)

So that is 2010 . . . So what's up for 2011??  Here are a few of my goals, in no particular order.  (And yes, I am mostly writing them down for me so that I actually try to accomplish these things :)

1 - Participate in a Bee  (which I have already signed up for but sometimes it is fun to write things that are easily checked off :)
2 - Participate in a Swap  (I have never done this,  any suggestions on good ones would be appreciated :)
3 - Learn how to Paper Piece
4 - Learn how to Curve Piece
5 - Be a guest blogger on other sites.  (I have done this once at Stash Manicure and loved it)
6 - Make a pillow or 2  (I need to branch out a little and I sew love the Cathedral Window pattern)
7 - Host a Quilt-A-Long  (a little scary, but I really think it would be fun, with a little stress mixed in, lol)
8 - Continue designing for the Moda Bake Shop  (I just love this so much, It is a definite keeper :)  (And since I already have a project lined up for January I can check this off the list, Yippee Skippee)
9 - Use up more of my ever growing Stash.  I can't believe how quickly it is growing :)
10 - Last but not least, and I waited for last to write it because it scares the pants off of me. . . . Get a design published in a magazine.  (I think I can, I think I can, I think I can :)
Pin It!


  1. Wonderful goals. And the last bet you can. It might be a big dream however when we work on our dreams, they do come true. I can't wait to see all you accomplish in 2011.

  2. Three of my favorite swaps on flickr are The Pillow Talk Swap, Urban Home Goods Swap and The Scrappy Mug Rug Swap. I love swapping. Hope you find on you like.

  3. Love the mosaic and good for you in sticking to it - looks lovely. I'd be banging my head. Your goal list is awesome. I find the swaps on Quilt Gallery to be well run and less stressful. Love your BakeShop patterns and sure the cross over would be so easy for you. Moda has a Jelly Roll designer contest right now. If you host a quilt along, I am so in. Good luck to your New Year.

  4. I signed up for the Spicing up the Kitchen Swap. If you are interested in some kitchen stuff I think sign ups are still open.

  5. Great post. Inspirational goals.
    And I'd love to have you as a guest blogger anytime.


  6. WOW I love your photo mosaics, something I must learn to do.

    Good luck with all you wishes and I am sure you will get most done.

    Let us know on your blog if you find some great swaps as I enjoy participating in them. I've never done an Advent Swap.

  7. Fantastic goals! I hope you get all of them, including getting a design published in a magazine!


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
