52 Quilts Completed in 2013

I didn't plan on completing an average of one quilt per week, it just turned out that way. Some were bed sized, some were small; some were traditional quilts, but most were art quilts. (If you click on the links you will be taken to the original blog posts about each quilt.)

This year started out like the last few years, with the Project Quilting challenges:

 (top row, left to right) "Lime Squares", "Mountain Mist", "Coneflower Confection"

And there were several custom quilts:

Two custom T-shirt quilts 
 Two custom bed quilts
Two quilts started by another quilter (left) "The Blue Collection" and (right) "Barbara's Pineapples" 

Then there were some quilts that were made for other groups:

(Left) My slice of "Industrial Dayton" for the Miami Valley Art Quilt Network’s Dayton Landmark Redux quilts and (right) a collaborative "String Quilt" for the Children's Museum of South Dakota.

Plus two more pieces:

(left) "Red Sky at Night" which was a special Project Quilting challenge and (right) "Home Tweet Home", a fabric mosaic made for the Miniature Show at Would You, Could You In a Frame

And a series of quilts based on design principles for the Miami Valley Art Quilt Network study group:

On June 16 I posted on my Facebook page: "We're 24 weeks into 2013 and I've made 23 quilts/fabrics mosaics so far this year."

The next few months was getting ready for the Textile Art Group show at the Wind’s CafĂ© in Yellow Springs:

The Yellow Springs Americana Series:

Two more custom quilts made using the client’s father’s bathrobes and made for twin sisters:


Three more art quilts:

(left) "The Fragment of a Song" made for the Bound 2B Round show at Village Artisans and (right) "My Very Educated Mother Just Said Uh-oh, No Pluto" for the Miami Valley Art Quilt Network study group
(bottom) "Four Patch Bridge at Sunset" made for the Miami Valley Art Quilt Network's Fiver Rivers MetroParks exhibit for 2014

Two more framed pieces:

(left to right) "Orange Tree at Sunset" and "Sunrise in the City" 

And something a little different:


This little 3D art quilt and "Sunrise in the City" were the only piece I made all year that wasn't for a specific challenge, show, or client.

Did you count them? Yes, there are only 48 photos as three not mentioned here because they aren't ready to be shown, plus a custom table caddy that I didn't take a photo of before it was picked up.
