In 2007 I finished 17 quilts. In 2008 I finished 19 quilts. In 2009 I must have been completely crazy – it appears I made 34 quilts in 2009. So, did I slow down in 2010 – well, maybe a little bit – I made 27! Here we go with the photos!
#1 FLOWERS OF HOPE (48″ x 62″) was made and quilted by me for the victims of the tsunami in Japan. As it turned out, I didn’t have confidence in my ability to quilt so I was embarrassed to give it away – so I picked another quilt to donate. I kept this one.
#2 MAIN STREET HOUSES (81″ x 96″) was a block swap with four friends. My daughter, Jan Stark, has this quilt and it lives in Corona Del Mar, CA.
#3 STAR STRUCK (65 1/2″ x 65 1/2″) is a Bonnie K. Hunter Design that I started in a class with Bonnie in Williamsburg, VA with the CPQG. It was a wedding gift to my nephew, Dustin, and Amy Albertson (and given that Dustin is in the Coast Guard, this quilt has had multiple homes!)
#4 RAISING CANE (50″ x 51″) is a Dorothy Young design for A Pocket Full of Mysteries that I donated to the babies in ICU.
#5 OSCAR’S WALL HANGING is a small quilt (28 1/2″ x 28 1/2″) that I made for Kerry Albertson for her nephew, Oscar’s 2nd Birthday!
#6 BLAKE’S MILKY WAY (69″ x 82″) is made from Augusta Coles’ Cutting Bee workshop and was given to my Grandangel Blake as a High School Graduation gift.
#7 BABY BOY COOK RAG QUILT (44″ x 54″) was made from cozy flannels for my grand-nephew, Mason Cook, and this quilt lives in Kansas!
#8 MODA SELVAGES (76 1/2″‘ x 90″) was a Quilter’s Corners block of the month project and was given to my Grandamgel Brennan Stark for his high school graduation.
#9 BABY GIRL RIBBON WEAVE is a quilt (48″ x 61″) that I donated to the babies in ICU.
#10 CAROLINA CHRISTMAS STARS (61″ x 77″) is a Bonnie Hunter design but I put one of the blocks together to makes this quilt and the OTHER block I made into another quilt that I called Carolina Christmas Poinsettia! This was quilted by A NEEDLE RUNS THROUGH IT. It has found a home (with the matching pillow) with Grandangel Leanna Epps, Christmas 2016.
#11 Here is the CAROLINA CHRISTMAS POINSETTIA (the other block in Bonnie K. Hunter’s Carolina Christmas quilt.) Pictured below is my dog Pepper and cat Daisy May HELPING. This was quilted by A NEEDLE RUNS THROUGH IT. Also this quilt has one of my INTERESTING pieced backs. This quilt has not found a forever home yet.
#12 The NEW YEAR’S EVE 2009 MYSTERY quilt (44″ x 49″) was designed by Ann Smith. I donated it to the babies in ICU.
#13 CHICKENS, CHICKS and CHERRIES (43″ x 43″) was a group exchange with quilting friends at Quilter’s Corner. We each made 5 blocks of the same chicken and mine was the black one who was eating. It was quilted by Sara Parrish.
#14 AMIMAL HUGS was donated to Downey’s Quilts for Kids Organization.
#15 LILA SCOTTY QUILT (38 1/2″ x 29″) was made for and donated to the babies in ICU.
#16 ABY’S QUILT was made for my nephew dog. I hand quilted it because I wanted to learn how to hand quilt and I figured the dog wouldn’t mind if my stitches weren’t perfect. The quilt lives in Kansas City, MO with Aby and my brother Fred.
#17 PEACEFUL HOURS (73″ x 87 1/2″) is a quilt designed by Michelle Pease and quilted by A NEEDLE RUNS THROUGH IT. This quilt has not found a forever home yet.
#18 COUNTRY PIECEMAKER’S BLOCK OF THE MONTH QUILT (44″ x 61″) designed by Sandie and Catherine. It does not have a forever home yet.
#19 SUMMER STARS (61″ x 84 1/2″) was the Summer Mystery designed by Ann Smith and quilted by Sara Parrish. It was a wedding present for Jessica Ward – my great niece and it has a home in Arizona.
#20 30’s CLUB STARS (64″ x 81″) was made as a monthly block project of the 30’s Club at Quilter’s Corner. It was quilted by A Needle Runs Through it. It does not have a forever home yet.
#21 THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS (26 x 26) was a Piece and Plenty Challenge – quilted by Sarah Parrish and gifted to my sister-in-law Elaine Albertson in Kansas City, Missouri after it was displayed in the Virginia Quilt Museum September 3 – December 18, 2010. The snowmen represent my brother Fred, sister-in-law, Elaine and their two sons, Eric and Joey Albertson.
#22 PUMPKINS GONE WILD is a panel that I hand quilted. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and I will keep this one to decorate with every year!
