Best of 2015

Cheryl of Meadow Mist Designs is hosting a Best of 2015 linky party. It is the perfect opportunity to look back at all the fun I’ve had this year, and remember some of the quilts and projects I had forgotten about.

Best of 2015 Linky Party

I used a very scientific method to choose my ‘Best of 2015’ posts – they are just some of my favorites. I hope you enjoy this look back, and also take some time to visit the other blogs participating in Cheryl’s party.

You can click on the title to take you to my original blog post on each project.

First up: the release of my very first pattern – Floating. I had so much fun designing and writing the pattern. I released the pattern digitally on Craftsy and Etsy (links on sidebar), and was asked to provide paper copies to my local quilt shop. The shop sold 30 copies fairly quickly – to say I was psyched would be an understatement! πŸ™‚

Floating Pattern

 

Checkered Past. The fabrics in this quilt are from Basic Grey and some of my absolute favorites. This quilt sleeps with me every night; I can honestly say I am in love with this quilt!

Checkered Past Quilt Front

 

Timeless. This quilt was gifted to my Aunt last summer. I did a lot of matchstick quilting, which made my triceps burn, and the texture on the quilt is amazing. I definitely want to do more of this type of quilting.

Timeless - An hourglass block quilt

 

Hopscotch. This quilt makes me happy on so many levels. It’s colorful and fun, was a breeze to make, and I really played with the quilting designs. Each column has a different quilting design in color matched thread. There’s also a lot of matchstick quilting in the background pieces. What’s not to love about this quilt?

Rainbow Quilt

 

Last but not least – my Bee Hive quilt. Who knew that twelve women who have never met could interpret one block so perfectly? This quilt makes my heart sing and I love it.

Chainlink Quilt Pattern

I hope you enjoyed this review of my past year, and if you are a new follower of my blog I hope these posts give you a glimpse of the types of quilts I like to make. πŸ™‚
