the last wip wednesday of 2009

wip wednesday has been good to me.
it has been an eye opener as to what i'm working on.
what gets finished.
and so on.

it has been almost 2 months since i admitted to 14 wips in jacquie's challenge...
and in early december i told you i had 7 done.
well i'm still at 7.
and i don't see myself finishing anything in the next 34 hours.

so here are some wips that will hopefully get done in 2010.

my nest braid just needs quilting.
but i keep changing my mind on how i want to do it.

same thing with this one.
its been done as a top & left that was for over a year!

and then there are these.
two done. four to go.
remind me why i decided to do all the stitching by hand??

i did finish over 50 quilts/projects this year.
not bad.

so with the end of 2009...
comes the start of 2010.
a fresh slate {minus the wips}
a new day.
new goals.
new resolutions.
new hope.
new dreams.

and lots of exciting things to come for jaybird quilts...

so have a happy new year.

and in the words of rent...
forget regret or life is yours to miss


  1. Great finishes!! Looking forward to seeing what is up for next year! Happy New Year!!

  2. Sometimes deadlines are a good thing... makes you finish things quickly! All the best for the new year :)

  3. I love the nest braid...those fabrics look so fantastic all together...must find some...
    happiest of new years to you.

  4. Happy New Year here's hoping you finish those WIPs...because I know there will me more in 2010, for me anyway.

  5. Nice projects. I'm especially interested in that braid quilt top. So pretty. How is that made? Seems simple enough, but I don't guess I can see where you begin. Jenn

  6. Looking forward to see what you're up to in 2010. Congrats on a successful year.

  7. 50 projects is AWESOME in one year! Congratulations!

  8. 50 projects in one year is nothing to sneeze at, that is about 1 a week!

    You are amazing!


  9. not bad!?! 50 projects...That's incredible...

    I too love the Nest braid. It's gorgeous. How to quilt is a big decision indeed.

  11. Wow! I love seeing all of your work and I look forward to seeing what you create in 2010! Happy New Year!

  12. Ah beautiful wips Julie...Happy New Year to you xo

  13. Completing 50 projects this year has been beyond amazing for me to witness, YOU are awesome. You have also been there to support EH & me during this roller coaster year, which was quite time consuming!!
    My hope for 2010 is for Mom to get to spend more time doing "fun & fabric" with my amazing Julie:) Love you so much.
    Thank you!!

  14. I'm in love with that braid quilt! Great fabrics! I hope accomplish even more in 2010. Happy New Year!
