a few favorites of 2009

so 2009 was a big year for me, in that i finally began sewing with some really nice quality fabrics.  and man, if you can afford it, why wouldn't you?  they feel so good and are easier to work with.  and i also realized that if you take advantage of the great sales online, you can get them for a pretty good price. 

the katie jump rope collection i won from pickled pear studios is still sitting there, making me happy when i look at it.  one of these days i will put it together in a quilt.  here's some others that make me happy:

Favorite Quilting Weight Cotton Collection - Nicey Jane

AND Sweet by Urban Chiks

- Favorite Trend (Motifs) birds

- Favorite Trend (Colors) I love that gray is taking over chocolate as a great neutral with all sorts of colors.

- Favorite Overall Designer is Heather Bailey and Heather Ross

- Favorite New Designer- Jessica Levit, whose Timber line will come out in 2010!
