My first post of 2019 was about the Paradise Fire quilts that we made together. Quilters from all over the world sent me any block they wanted from the Little Miss Sawtooth quilt. There were so many blocks, I was able to make three quilts. One of the quilts was queen size for Rochelle ( a fellow quilter ) and the other two were smaller and for her children. Y’all sent so many blocks that I made the quilts and still had blocks leftover, which I ended up donating to another quilter that needed to make blocks for another cause.
I also made my very first version of Bad Girl. I’m still so in love with this quilt and pattern, but I did end up selling this particular quilt. Oh, I’ve got a little surprise for this quilt coming out February. I can’t tell you yet. It’s forbidden. 🙂 BUT it’s going to make making this quilt much easier!
Diagonal Seam Tape is a perfect solution for sewing straight diagonal seams without having to mark any lines! The special washi tape is strong, thin, and removes cleanly after sewing projects. Simply place the tape in front of the feed dogs with the red line in front of the needle as the stitch line. The black lines on either side of the center line represent a perfect 1/4″ seam allowance and are a great resource to use when making half square triangles, or learning to keep a perfect 1/4″. Each roll is 10 yards.
I finished my 8th version of Little Miss this month. I used it for making all the videos during the quilt along, but it was also a very well timed commission quilt.
I also finished my third Bad Girl quilt that was part of a quilt along. This one was quilted by my friend, Tracy, and she really sparked a desire to get better with my quilting. They’ll be more to come with that next year. I’m plotting something special.
Are you learning to piece quilts? Are your blocks the wrong size, wonky, or leaving you frustrated?
I designed this course to help with all those hair pulling moments and more. There’s video tutorials every step of the way as I walk you through making a quilt. Maybe this is your first quilt or maybe you are just frustrated and need to take a class to help you learn the correct way of piecing. This class has everything! It also comes with two quilt patterns. Click the tab below to find out more!
I don’t have any quilt finishes in September, but I did finish this runner. It was one of my projects from Michael Miller. My ambassadorship runs out this coming February, but I had a good time getting fabric surprises in the mail from them all 2019.
We also began the Little Miss Sawtooth quilt along in September. It’s my biggest quilt along to date thanks to you! The posts are here and here.
I finished my 3rd Trippy in October. I feel like this is where all my love of gold really showed itself. 🙂
Next I finished my 4th Migration quilt. My very favorite version of this quilt yet and I REALLY want to make this one again! I just gifted this quilt to my sister in law for Christmas.
I also finished my very first version of Tea Time. I’m absolutely in love with this quilt, but though I haven’t sold it yet, I do have it for sale here. This momma has two kids in college and am spending a small fortune on it. I’m not happy about having to sale this one, but you get it I’m sure.
I finished my second version of Morning Sun this month. I really want to redo this pattern to look I’m using now and redo this quilt along too. This is a very fun quilt to make and it’s SO MUCH EASIER THAN IT LOOKS!
I’ve not posted any of my quilt finishes in December, there’s only been Para Para and I only finished it moments ago. Ha! So while I’m counting it as a 2019 finish, I’ve not posted about it yet. I will be showing it to you very soon though. I have posted about it’s progress here and here.
Little Miss Sawtooth quilt along is nearing its end with posts here and here.
So that is it for my 2019. One thing I will be doing a little differently next year is keeping a monthly list of personal highlights too. I’m not good with keeping up with the personal as well as the quilty. Haha.
I hope your 2019 was the bestest! Thank you for spending this year with me for quilty stuff and I hope to see you next year too. Later this week, I’ll be talking about plans and goals for 2019. Hugs!
