My Best of 2019

Hi and welcome to my stop on the Best of 2019 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.

Click on any of the titles to be taken to the actual blog post for more details and pictures.

1.  Mosaic Mystery Quilt

The Mosaic Mystery Quilt kicked off in July and is going strong.  The quilt along posts are always among the higher view count posts of mine.  If you want to join in the fun, you can find all of the information about the Mosaic Mystery Quilt here.

2.  Rock and Roll Baby Quilt Tutorial

The Rock and Roll baby quilt tutorial was my most popular tutorial this year.  You can see more pictures on the blog post and get the full tutorial on the OLFA blog.  This quilt was great to use up some strip shaped scraps and was gifted to my friends' new baby boy.

3.  Favorite Finishes Monthly Linkup

I have wanted to start hosting a monthly link up for for a while so I started the Favorite Finishes Monthly Linkup Party in March of 2019.  I really enjoying seeing all of the finishes linked each month.  Here is the link to November's party.  The Best of 2019 linkup is taking the place of the Favorite Finishes Linkup this month, but it will be back in January :)

4.  Camden Road

My favorite finish this year is Camden Road.  I love the modern take on a classic design and its color scheme.  There has been a lot of interest around this pattern, so Cindy of Hyacinth Quilt Designs and myself will be hosting a quilt along starting at the end of next month for the pattern (more details coming soon).

5.  Candy Stripes

Candy Stripes was my favorite quilt publication pattern this year, appearing in the 2020 Quilter's Planner magazine.  The quilt has fun pops of color and brightens up my room.  I love the new smaller size of the Quilter's Planner for this upcoming year and am excited to start working in it in just a few days.  There is still time to get your own Quilter's Planner.

  2. Thanks for hosting the linky party Cheryl, and thanks for designing such beautiful quilts. You keep many of us busy throughout the year.

  3. I really love Camden Road, too. I think the monthly favorite finish link up is a great idea and I look forward to seeing what 2020 has in store for you!

  4. How did I miss Rock and Roll. Just pinned for future use on baby quilts for charity next year! Thanks for hosting the link up.

  5. Thanks for all the great linky parties you host! I'm excited Camden Road is going to be a quilt along, as I got the pattern just a few weeks ago and was debating when to start it. I also love the clean and simple aesthetics of Candy Stripes, I think that one's definitely on my list too!

  6. Oh how I love that Camden Road quilt!! I am really enjoying the Mosaic QAL Cheryl. It is a lot of fun to sew with so many great people. I am not caught up tho - haven't started December yet. There are three more days to the month? Maybe if I get lucky???

  7. Fabulous "bests", but by heart goes with Candy! Unfortunately my thighs will agree with me on that! LOL!!!!

  8. Always enjoy seeing your quilts so much. So sorry that I had to drop out of Mosaic Mystery. That was during the time of my twin sister's illness and untimely passing. Looking forward to seeing all that you will do in 2020, including the Camden Road quilt along. Thank you for hosting the Best of link party again this year.

  9. They are all wonderful! I’m looking forward to seeing more of your beautiful creations in 2020!

  10. All great accomplishments especially agree on the favorite finish - such a beautiful quilt! xo Melanie

  11. It's always fun to see what each blogger picks as their top 5 posts. You had a really good year with finishes and new designs. Have a very Happy New Year!

  12. Lovely finishes!!! Candy Stripes is sweet :-)
