As this year comes to a close, I am reflecting on the quilts I made. I was shocked to discover I completed 18 quilts this year. It is somewhat interesting to note that 17 of them were gifts for other people.
Making quilts is soothing for me; I love the creativity and focus and building my skills. I also love the joy my quilts bring to others. And while each quilt made this year has a story, Flight may be the quilt that I look at with sadness as it was a gift for my friend's newborn daughter, a daughter my friend never got to enjoy because they both fell very ill the day after birth and only one, the baby, survived the battle.
Most of these quilts, however, were made for joyful occasions. Babies especially!
So here is a collage of the quilts finished in 2015- all 18 of them!
I am looking forward to more quilts in 2016: new skills, new fabric and lots of joy.
Happy New Year!
