I guess I was busy in 2010.  Its funny how I can’t quite remember doing much all year….but when I stick it all in a collage and have to leave 20 or so pictures out…I feel like I need a nap and a Dr. Pepper.   Here’s to a maybe not-so-busy 2011!

    What a beautiful assortment of quilts. I love them all. Now I feel inspired to get something done in 2011. Thanks for the little push to get going.

    It's amazing how we forget what we've done throughout the year until we put the pictures in a collage. Your work is amazing.

    To Kristie's comment above, haha. Seriously. I would say this mosaic makes ME feel like a slacker (uh, it does, kinda…) but 2010 was a weird different year. Your blog has been amazing and creatively inspiring. So I'm taking some of that inspiration along with me into 2011. Thanks!

    So many awesome, amazing quilts. Makes me really want a close friend that loves making quilts and loves giving them to her close friend!

    I think one of my favorites of yours are the ones you made for your two sons' room – the raw edge circle quilt – just love the dimensional effect and the wonderful color/pattern. Someday, I tell myself, SOMEDAY!

    Um, you made all these lovlies AND gave birth! I feel like such a slacker.

    Great job! I have several of those patterns and one of my goals is to make them in 2011! Happy New Year.

    My husband would be so happy for me to make all those quilts, and I am semi retired! You are an inspiration to me, and my favorite websight. I look forward to your websight in 2011!

    Allison, I would say "you were quite busy" and didn't you have a new baby in 2010 and move. Wish I had accomplished half of what you did. Keep on inspiring me. My resouloution this year—start my own blog—-you motivate me. BettyLou

  29. Mary on Lake Pulaski January 1, 2011 at 3:06 pm #

    What a wonderful year in review Allison! Now what would you do if you were cranking out those beautiful quilts that pop into your head? Hope your new year is everything you want it to be!

  30. Cindy January 1, 2011 at 3:52 pm #

    Thank you too for teaching me soooo much!!:) And for giving me a heads up on your favorite quilt shop (Miller's Dry Goods) here in Ohio. It is an awesome shop and I was half tempted to ask them if they knew Allison!:) I'm sure they would have said yes! Wishing you and your family only the best in 2011!

  31. Terriaw January 1, 2011 at 4:26 pm #

    Wow, you were busy and productive in 2010! Just look at all those beautiful projects you created. So inspiring to see them in such a fabulous mosaic. Happy 2011 to you!

    WOW!!! I am so inspired to stop typing and start sewing right now! In 2011, I want to do a better job of accomplishing instead of admiring and take better pictures of what I do make. Thanks for the inspiration with each post. Keep it up, although maybe not so much if you don't want the Superwoman award…

    Wow! You were crazy busy in 2010. I am patting myself on the back for finishing ONE quilt last year.
