A look back.............

I was asked how many quilts I finished in the time period from when I started my blog (July 4, 2007) to the same date this year.  Yesterday I spent some time going through old posts from the 3 years that I didn't do a recap collage at the end of the year.  I came up with 214 finished quilts (or if I count small wallhangings, 220).  In 2007 I posted mostly pieces I had made before I started the blog.  I started a lot more projects that year but only finished 4 that I documented on the blog.  This is my favorite from that year.  It is a paper pieced Karen Stone pattern called Jewels in the Grass.
In 2008 I had two favorites.  I call this one "My Happy Quilt" and it is made of batiks and Kaffe Fassett fabrics.  This post shows a close up and the back of the quilt. 

This is my other favorite from 2008.  It is a Buggy Barn pattern and is made of flannel fabrics.  This post has a closer look at one section of it.  I still have this quilt and I use it.  I still love it. 

This crazy pieced batik quilt is my favorite finished quilt from 2009.  I gifted it to a great-niece and I miss it.  I was trying to use up my blue, turquoise and purple batik scraps with this one.  In this post is a close up of the binding and backing along with a little of the front of the quilt.
This little couch quilt comes in as a close second for a 2009 finished quilt favorite.  It is all Christmas fabrics, a lot of them Hoffman fabrics.  I get this one out in the first days of December and it usually isn't put away until late January.  There are some more photos of it on this post, closeups and backing.
