2011: The year in which I made a bunch of stuff

This year I have spent a lot of my free time working on some sewing projects.  When I was going through our photos for the previous post, I came across photos of some of my projects that I haven't shared so I thought I'd go through what I worked on this year.  
I made this at the beginning of the year to keep in the living room because Tom said our other blankets were too small.
Quilt for Harper.
I made this for Harper's friend for her birthday.
I made this for no particular reason, but it has turned out to be a good play-on-the-floor quilt for Jonah.
Zipper pouch I made for Harper's crayons.
I made these little bags for Harper to give to her cousins when we had a little family reunion in June.
University of Utah quilt
Quilt for my cousin's baby.
Jonah's birthday present.  My grandparents bought the fabric, I made the quilt.
Twin quilt for Harper's bed.  
Queen size quilt for our bed.  
Quilt I made for myself.  It is only half-quilted because I got busy with Christmas stuff.
Advent calendar.
Christmas stockings.  I made the kids' last year, and miraculously finished mine and Tom's on Christmas Eve this year.  I will have to add our names next year.
Tree skirt. 
I made this for one of Tom's co-workers who just had a baby.  I finished binding it earlier this evening.
That's pretty much it.  I also made a quilt for my brother when he came home from his mission but I never took a picture of it.  I will have to get one when I am in Utah later this month.

I am looking forward to doing some more sewing in 2012 :)  By the end of the year our apartment might be overflowing with quilts.

Wow! Your great-grandmother, Sarah Chevalier, would be so proud! She loved to quilt! These are all great!

Amazing, Erica! I'm totally impressed! I think we need to move back to L.A., so that I can harness my inner-sewer/quilter/crafter with you and Morgan. You are amazing!

Your quilts are amazing! I need to make one for Jade and don't even know where to start.

Judy said...

These are all gorgeous! Do you do the quilting, or do you have a good quilter? I love the U of U one. I should make one of those for Bob. Maybe the U on one side, and BYU on the other. Then we could flip it depending on who is winning.

I'm impressed!

I love all of these! I also want to know--to you have someone do the quilting, or do you do it?

Jenna said...

Wow Erica! These are wonderful!! You are really, really talented. I'm jealous that you got all these done this year!

Tom said...

Erica does everything herself.

I would also point out that Erica just taught herself to do this, and is a relatively new sewer. She does all the quilting herself. Her corners, seams and bindings are all perfect. What a gal!
