My Best of 2018

Hi and welcome to my stop on the Best of 2018 blog linky party!  I had such fun going through my posts from the year to figure out which 5 posts I would be highlighting today.  It was a great way for me to review the year and revisit some finishes from earlier in the year that I had forgotten about.

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 details and pictures.

1.  Magnolia Mystery Quilt

The Magnolia Mystery quilt ran through the beginning of 2018 with a three day long quilt reveal (Day 1, Day 2, Day 3) in March.  The instructions are still available on the blog and you can start anytime!

2.  Pocket Full of Change

Pocket Full of Change was my most popular tutorial on the blog this year. This quilt design is perfect for using up larger scraps and left over bits of layer cakes to create a quick and easy baby quilt.

3.  Modern Plus Sign Quilts Book & Book Hop

My first book, Modern Plus Sign Quilts, published in February and we held a super fun book hop complete with over 60 versions of the books quilts shown.

4.  Modern Plus Sampler

Along with the Modern Plus Sign Book, I started a Modern Plus Sampler in July (wrapping up in April) that uses most of the blocks from the book in a new layout.  The quilt along is free to join (but the book is needed for the block patterns).

5.  Flutter

Flutter was my most popular quilt finish of the year.  Flutter published in the Modern Quilts Unlimited magazine (and is now available as a separate Meadow Mist Designs pattern with additional size instructions).  I also posted a tutorial on how I quilted the drunkard's path blocks.
