It seems everyone is linking up with Cheryl of Meadow Mist Designs to share their top 5 from 2016 so I must join the fun!
I checked my Word Press stats to see my top 5 viewed posts and although that captured some of my favorites it didn’t get them all so here are my top 5 favorite makes in 2016.
#5 Garden Gate (I just realized I never blogged about this finish!): This was made with Sundrops by Corey Yoder and a pattern received in the Sew Sampler box from FQS – what I love most about it is the quilting. I FMQ a design called Dots & Dashes, it was so simple but very striking.
#4 Memory quilt: A friend lost her husband 2 years ago and she asked me if I would take some of her favorite shirts of his and make a quilt. This was a labor of love.
#3 Blueberry Park Granny Square: This was another labor of love…my niece bought her first house and I made this as a housewarming gift.
#2 12daysofxmasinjuly: I participated in a sew along by Sarah of Confessions of a Fabric Addict to make my first ever Christmas quilt. This one was meant to be kept before I even picked out the fabric and it’s been draped across my couch all month!
and my #1 favorite make this year is
Oversized Postage Stamp: this was made using a tutorial from Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict. This quilt came together so quickly and although it took some time to quilt all those circles I am just over the moon happy with how it turned out!! This one was meant to be sold but I think I’ll just hang on to it 😉
2016 was a very quilty year for me and I can’t wait to see what comes in 2017!
I wish you all a Healthy & Happy New Year! ttfn…
