Best of 2016

As 2016 comes to an end, we like to think back about everything that has happened this year.  Not all good by any means, but what year ever is?  In my little corner of the world, I have experienced a lot of good this year.  Especially when it comes to my quilting and blogging.  :)

Cheryl over at Meadow Mist Designs is having a Best of 2016 Linky Party for everyone to share their best/favorite blogs posts of the year.  What a great way to go back and see some of the amazing posts from some great bloggers!


Here are my Best Posts,Favorite Memories, and Firsts of the year:

1. "Knots" of Color
This one has to be my very favorite.  After years and years of thinking about it and starting and stopping, I finally finished my first pattern and listed it on Craftsy.  This was a very exciting moment for me.  I made it all the way through the process!  It was so much fun to be able to share this with everyone.  I had a huge grin on my face the entire time I was writing this post. 

You can purchase the pattern HERE.

Another Favorite post would have to be for the 2016 New Quilt Bloggers group.  This is more of a favorite experience really.  I had barely started my blog when I was invited to join the New Quilt Bloggers group.  This was exactly what I needed, right when I needed it.  It was an amazing experience.  I learned so much and more importantly, met so many fabulous people.  And they were all quilt bloggers!!  

This post is one of my favorites because it has such a wonderful memory attached.  My aunt (who is my great quilting inspiration) came to visit me.  I was so thrilled to have her come see me and we had the most fabulous weekend.  It was one of those mini vacations that I will never forget!

4. Shadow Block Mini Quilt-A-Long & Hop
This post was another first for me.  Janice from Color, Creating & Quilting and I worked together to gather a few quilters to make some mini Shadow Block quilts.  We finished off the quilt-a-long with a blog hop and Janice has a gallery of all of the beautiful minis that were made.  This post is one of my highest views and comments.  It was a great time and both Janice and I agree that we will be doing another one soon. 

5. Cloud9 New Block Blog Hop - Blooming Berry
This post was part of our New Quilt Bloggers group.  We were given the opportunity to design a block with some scrumptious Cloud 9 fabrics.  This was my first tutorial and it was so much fun to see the diversity of the blocks that all of the bloggers came up with.  

So, those are my favorite posts from 2016!  I hope you have fun reading them.  Also, make sure to hop over to the linky party over at Meadow Mist Designs to see what everyone else has shared.  You just might find some new inspiration.

  1. They are all outstanding, stunning, gorgeous, but I like the seat under the Quilt Bloggers hop. ( and that quilt was my pick for a favourite today ) I want one of those, a perfect stand for photo shoots. Happy New Year.

  2. Wow! They are all beautiful! Your design is outstanding and the shadow block is awesome. I've been a blogger since 2012 but I started quilting just this past summer and follow you on Bloglovin, I can't wait to see what inspiration you share next!

  3. Beautiful finishes, all of them! I really enjoyed seeing your quilt along progress and see all of the different variations of the design across blogland.

I love receiving comments from you. It makes my day. I try to respond to each and every comment via email. Unless of course you are a no-reply blogger because I don't have a way to respond to you, but I appreciate and read the comments just as much.
I hope you have a wonderful day.
Happy Quilting!
