What a Year! 2013 Craftiness Recap

Welp, the holidays are over, the kid's back at school and I'm back to work. But before I really give myself over to 2014, I wanted to recap the stuff I made this year.

I used to dread these recap posts, worried that it would highlight how little I actually accomplished, but then I'd see the mosaic of makes and realize that I actually DID make some stuff. So this year, I skipped the dread and went directly to looking forward to creating my Mosaic of Makes!

I made 10 quilts (but could only fit 9 in my mosaic):

And a bunch of other stuff, a sampling of which is pictured here:

That bottom-right mug rug is one of 10 I made for my colleagues, and blogged here. I'm particularly proud of those finishes.

Another finish I'm particularly pleased with is the New Wave quilt I made for my niece - that was a long-standing WIP. I never stopped liking the project; I just ran out of steam. So glad I picked it up again.

I'm going to milk these recap/goal-setting posts for all they're worth so stay tuned for a separate Goals of 2014 post!


  1. A lovely year for you! My absolute favorite is the tumblers quilt!

  2. Great year Felicity! I don't even bother with the recap post so you're a step ahead of me!!

  3. I love your mug rug, it would look great in my MINI Cooper. Perfect theme! I'd like to recap my year but don't even know how to lay out my photos like you did. Oh well, there's always next year.

  4. You're such a rock star felicity! Love your blog

  5. I think you had a great year and I hope that 2014 is even better for you.

  6. Your mosaics are full of gorgeous makes! Hope 2014 is a great year for you :)

  7. I don't know if you will see this as the blog post is from January. I love all the quilts but I would especially like to know how you did the Baptist fans? Where they with FMQ or could they be done with a walking foot? I live in Caracas, Venezuela and am trying to sort out how to machine quilt a top I finished. Thanks.


I *love* comments, and I try to respond to every one by email (but I can't if you're a no-reply blogger!). So go on, don't be shy - leave one to let me know you've stopped by!
