Sewing Trends of 2010 and thoughts on 2011

Here's my Sew, Mama, Sew! survey on the sewing scene of 2010 and thoughts on the coming year.

Looking back on the sewing scene of 2010, what trends stand out in your mind?

Hexagons. Wonky quilt blocks. Ruffles. Pennants/bunting. There have been some great color combinations as well (aqua/red, etc).

What were some of your favorite things? (Trends, fabric collections, patterns, blogs? Whatever you really loved.)

I love the linen and brights trend, though I haven't done anything with it yet (plans though!). Some favorite color combinations are tangerine/aqua and grey/yellow.

What was your very favorite fabric collection or print? (If not listed above.)

My favorite collections this year have been Joel Dewberry's Modern Meadow and Heather Bailey's Nicey Jane.

What was the best thing you made in 2010? (Be sure to share a photo!)
The best thing? My son, by far. ;)

baby's first christmas

But sewing-wise, I really liked the black and white with red quilt I made for him.

What is one of the best things you saw that was made by someone else?
Oh gosh, I have so many things saved in my Flickr favorites and bookmarked from blogs...I don't even know which to pick!

What do you think 2011 has in store? (Again, trends, fabric, patterns, etc.)
I don't think I have enough experience to predict anything, but I think we'll see a continuation of the same things, but with a fresh perspective. Perhaps different color combinations, modern takes on retro ideas. I've seen a few things that might suggest that there will be a variety of abstract prints as well. I also think solids and monochromatic color schemes might come in to play a lot.

Anything you’re ready for the sewing world to get over?
Owls. Yes, they're cute. No, they don't need to be included in every pattern, print, applique, pillow, stuffed toy, and so on and so forth.

What’s on your sewing agenda for 2011? What are you excited about? What would you like to learn more about?
I'm excited to try my hand at a craft fair and maybe an Etsy store. I have a few ideas that I haven't shared on my blog (yet) and I wonder if I'd get any interest. We'll just have to find out, won't we?

What about you? Do you agree or disagree with my predictions? Wanna rail me for hating on owls? Let me know in the comments!

Oooh, good call on the hexagons, and the best thing that you made this year, and the owls...

You have a cute baby and that quilt is superb!

My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .
net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on numerous websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another
platform. I have heard excellent things about blogengine.
net. Is there a way I can import all my
wordpress posts into it? Any help would be really appreciated!

Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads
up. The text in your article seem to be running off the
screen in Safari. I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you
know. The layout look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon.

At this time it appears like Expression Engine is the preferred
blogging platform out there right now. (from what I've read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

Exploring I noticed your website bookmarked as: Blogger: The
Stepford Wife. I am assuming you bookmarked it yourself and wanted to ask if social
book-marking gets you a lot of targeted traffic? I've been looking at doing some bookmarking for a few of my sites but wasn't certain if
it would generate any positive results. Many thanks.

Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you're using?
I'm looking to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most
blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique.
P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
