Best Quilting Posts | 2017

Hello and happy Wednesday! I've been seriously working on getting organized this week...and on making plans for the blog for next year!  So I thought today would be a great day to share my top posts from this year (just in case you missed any of them...and because a lot of them do have helps for beginning the new year)!



 I'll start with number ten and work my way up to number one! It was interesting and fun to note that a couple of these posts were actually from previous years but are still being visited enough to make the top ten!

Small Projects Round Up

Hello! I've made it a tradition to review my year in quilts and projects as each year comes to a close.  This year I believe it will take me four posts:  Two posts will focus on the large quilts, and an additional two will share the mini quilts, table runners, smaller projects, and bag finishes. I decided to start with the smaller projects and bags since some of these are quick projects you might still have time to make before Christmas.


My first small project last year was this fun Zip Organizer that I keep in my

Christmas Log Cabin Quilt

Happy Monday! The king-size scrappy log cabin Christmas quilt is complete (wow...try to say that fast five times!). I had forgotten how long it takes to bind a king-size quilt.  Luckily I had a few episodes of  Fixer upper and some others to catch up on!


For some reason,though, I'm a little bit sad to be done with the making of it.
