Quilts of 2014

2014 Quilts!

This year was one for the mini quilts!  I made 17 mini quilts, 2 large wall hangings, 1 full sized quilt and 1 queen sized quilt. You can get the links to each of my quilts from my pinterest board.

In between all the quilting I sewed up some other stuff:
-Two Super Totes (Super tote #4 and Super tote #5)
-My first Washi tunic and a matching Black Bird tunic for my daughter.
-Two Geranium dresses (green dress here and butterfly dress here)
-I reworked the Zipper-Mouth Shark pattern and created a tutorial.
-And more little zip pouches then I could keep track of!

Other 2014 sewing projects

I finally joined two quilting groups here--The New Mexico Quilter's Association and the Albuquerque Modern Quilt guild.

And this was my first year of swaps!  I participated in a couple of individual swaps, a couple through my guild, a birthday swap group, the instagram mini swap and The Sisterhood of the Traveling Quilts:

You can read more about Ashley's medallion quilt here, Laura's luminous quilt here, and Jessica's jewel tones on black quilt here.  I've sworn off all swaps next year, save for the sisterhood quilts again and individual swaps.

So it has been a very full year of projects, even though most of the time I feel like I work at a snail's pace!  Next year I'm already booked up through April!  Here's to a productive and fulfilling 2015!


  1. LOVE this! You had a fabulous year and I'm so happy to be a part of it! <3 I'm partial to the sisterhood mosaic - we need to make one for all of us to post when they are all done. What app or service did you use to make the collages?

  2. You made nearly 2 quilts a month, and with several larger quilts that is super impressive! It is also awesome that you are booked through April!! I really look forward to seeing what you create in 2015. :)

  3. You have made some really amazing pieces this year, Renee. And I always love seeing what you are working on next. Good for you having all things lined up and knowing what you will be working on until April. I must become more organized like that! Happy New Year! Come on 2015!

  4. Happy New Year to you and your family Renee! That is a very impressive list for 2014 and I can't wait to see what you create in 2015!

  5. You are doing great. Watching your progress on IG makes me feel like I'm a snail :) All the best for 2015!

  6. Wow! This was a super productive year for you. :D I just love watching everything you get into.

  7. Wow, what a fabulous year you've had. I love seeing a whole year of sewing projects all together like this. I can't wait to see what 2015 brings you!

  8. What an impressive collection. Congratulations on being booked out. I hope you find the year ahead incredibly rewarding. Happy New Year!

  9. What beautiful projects in 2014! Cheers to 2015!

  10. Isn't it fun to be surprised by how much you have accomplished? I know I tend to focus on what still needs to be finished, so my recap was a pleasant surprise too. Claire aka Knitnkwilt

  11. Busy, busy, busy! Like the bees in your bee mini quilt!
