Well, it's that time of year - time to make a year-in-retrospect-photo-mosaic. (I think it's somewhere in the official bylaws of being a quilt blogger). So once again I jumped on the bandwagon - a) because it's fun to look back and see what's been done this past year and b) because I like looking at them all over blogland as well. Lots and lots of inspiring eye candy.

2011 has been a great year- adventures and fun that I never would have imagined last January: attending spring Quilt Market in my hometown, having some of my quilts hang at said Quilt Market, meeting one of my favorite fabric/quilting inspirations, Sandy Klop, going WAY out of my comfort zone and planning a quilt-blogger's party, but I think my favorite was meeting so many absolutely lovely people - whether in real life or online - who also hoard fabric share this fun, creative, quirky hobby.

Thank you awesome friends.  Happy New Year and best wishes for 2012! Can't wait to see what it brings.
