My Best of 2021

Hi and welcome to my stop on the Best of 2020 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'm looking forward to 2022, how about you?

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

1.  Macaron Mystery Quilt

The Macaron Mystery Quilt kicked off in July and is going strong.  If you want to join in the fun, you can find all of the information about the Macaron Mystery Quilt here.

2.  Morewood Mystery Quilt

The Morewood Mystery Quilt kicked off in July 2020 and wrapped up this April.  The reveal parade had over 400 Morewood Mystery quilts in it!!  Check out all of the quilts here.  

I was so excited to release by second book this year, Just One Charm Pack Quilts and the response was so awesome!  I love seeing the quilts everyone is making from the book, using up their stashes of charm packs.  

I really enjoyed the blog hop where so many of my friends joined in to make and share quilts from the book.  You can find the wrap up of the hop here with links and pictures of all of the quilts and I just saw that the book is on sale on Amazon right now for $18.80 (affiliate link).

4.  Irish Puzzle Pattern

My most successful and poplar new pattern this year was Irish Puzzle which I made using one of my favorite lines of all time, Chicopee by Denyse Schmidt against a gray background.  You can see more pictures and read about the quilt here (you can find the pattern in my shop in both digital and print versions).

5.  Favorite Tutorial - Photo Stand for Quilts

One of my most asked questions is how I take my flat quilt photos outside by myself.  This post shows the photo backdrop holder I used along with how I attach the quilt to it.  

Thanks for stopping by my blog!  I hope you will consider linking up your favorite posts from 2021 or stopping by to see other blogger's best of 2021 posts!  You can visit the Best of post right here.

  4. What a wonderful year you've had and I do enjoy your blog & joining in with your QALs & picking up some great tips along the way. I've not made anything from your book yet, but have a couple I may play with in the future. Not had any mojo this year & not linked up for the finishes, but hopefully will be better next year and am enjoying working on the Macaron Mystery. Thanks for being you, take care & hugs.

  5. It was a great year for you Cheryl. I love your Mystery QAL and am planning on getting caught up with Macaron now that the holidays are over. Happy New Year and all the best n 2022 🥂
