Looking Back Post

I thought I would answer a few of the questions from Sew Mamma Sew's Blog.  It was a very busy sewing year for me.  Most of the sewing was for myself and some for my store/other people.  

Looking back on the sewing scene of 2010, what trends stand out in your mind?  There were alot of black and citrus and brown and aqua (colorwise)  
What were some of your favorite things? (Trends, fabric collections, patterns, blogs? Whatever you really loved.) I really liked all the prints with Owls and fruit/even chairs and objects.  
What was your very favorite fabric collection or print? (If not listed above.)   Hooty Hoot by Riley Blake  having boys i love how many boy prints that are truly beautiful are being made.
What was the best thing you made in 2010? (Be sure to share a photo!)  I think my Green monster maybe not the best thing I made but the most challenging.  The Pattern was sub-par and had to make adjustments/plus i added a few rows to make it a king sized quilt.  I also had it waiting for me most of the year and finally finished quilting on my sewing machine proving that you can quilt a king sized quilt on a small machine.
What is one of the best things you saw that was made by someone else?  My friend Valerie made an awesome Halloween Costume this year.  I am always impressed with creativity and ideas that don't take alot of effort!  
What do you think 2011 has in store? (Again, trends, fabric, patterns, etc.)  I have no clue...hopefully some cute patterns for big girls lol
Anything you’re ready for the sewing world to get over?  The citrus and black thing...
What’s on your sewing agenda for 2011? What are you excited about? What would you like to learn more about?
This year I have a few quilts to finish for my shoppe, and one to finish for a son.  Then I plan on tackling my very large scrap bin.  I think i will cut all my material into 10" squares and then anything smaller into 5" squares and anything else i will throw away.  


  1. What a cute costume! Great idea - something my son might like for next year - I could just make him into a construction worker. I hope to see more bright colors in quilts this year - and more use of batiks!

  2. Not sure how this post escaped me, but THANKS for the shoutout! Of course, all of inspiration comes from my creative friends and blogs. It's amazing how much talent there is in the world, isn't it?
