For 2012 I set out to learn to FMQ, and make quilts. I think I got that accomplished! I have only been quilting seriously for a year and I think it's safe to say I built some skills last year.

I made 7 big quilts, 4 mini quilts and several other projects. I'm very pleased with what I was able to accomplished.
My goal for this year is to make more quilts for home. More specifically, one for me that is off limits to ANYONE! Selfish, you say? Ha! Every time I pull out a blanket to snuggle on the couch with, it disappears by the next day!Although I made one for each of my kids, it seems there are never enough blankets/quilts/covers in the house. I would bet that if I dared to enter my daughters room that resembles one of those peoples homes on the show Hoarders, I would find that she thinks she is the Princess and the Pea, only instead of mattress stacked on her bed, it's blankets and quilts:/ But I'm not that brave.( I would be afraid of what I might step on)
Anyway, My hope for 2013 is that it is as much fun and filled with learning as last year;)
