I picked my top 5 posts by the posts with the most views (minus any giveaway posts). Click on any of the titles to be taken to the actual blog post for more information and pictures.
1. Sheets as Quilt Backings
My post about using sheets as quilt backings (and tips for successful sheet selection) was my #1 most viewed post ever with over 14,000 views! If you hop over to that post, be sure to read the comments as the quilters that commented added a lot of knowledge and value to the topic.
2. Meadow Mystery Quilt
The instruction posts each month for the Meadow Mystery Quilt have been some of my highest view posts for the year so I am going lump them into one best of entry. We are piecing together some blocks this month, there is still time for you to join in :)
3. Midnight Mystery Quilt
The Midnight Mystery Quilt posts have also been very popular, especially the quilt reveal parade post which has over 100 versions of the quilt! (You can see the parade right here). The instruction posts will always be available on my blog so you can start anytime!
4. Canvas Lines Quilt
I designed Canvas Lines with a slight tribal feel with alternating diagonal geometric shapes and negative space. Canvas Lines combined some of the prints from the Doe collection by Carolyn Friedlander for Robert Kaufman with some crisp Kona white fabric. The Canvas Lines quilt and pattern are available in the Quilter's Planner (and my plan is to release a full pattern including baby, lap, and queen sizes early next year).
5. Kiku Quilt
I made the Kiku quilt for the Quilts from 100 Blocks Magazine Fall 2016 edition from my block Cloud Burst which was a paper pieced block design. In Kiku I enlarged the block, added partial blocks on either side to finish off the secondary patterns, and added a bunch of negative space. Johellen George quilted a pattern of double swirls on the quilt. I just found out that the quilt was accepted into QuiltCon in the piecing category (under the original quilt name Cloud Burst).
