Best of 2016

It's always nice to take a look back at your year...
and this year I am participating in the Linky Party with

Cheryl is hosting the Best 5 of 2016.
~Thank you Cheryl~

1. Snowballs and Celebrations
One of the projects in this post was a really 
fun opportunity of pattern testing for Whole Circle Studios!

I now have a thing for flowering snowball quilts!
This was just my tester quilt... I have a king sized version 
in mind for 2017!

2.  Most Comments Category.
(that didn't include a giveaway)
This post was about how "life" happens.
But with it I was able to make a quilt that took my down memory lane...
but I refer to it as my Paper Route quilt.

I was able to participate in a red and white small quilt challenge (of sorts) for Moda
I made two small scrappy red and white quilts and sent them to Moda,
 (along with the other people who did the same).
Then they were made into beautiful quilted pillows! 
The Moda Cutting Table post of these pillows was amazing!
 It was called Christmas in July.

I was so honored to be
a part of the group!


4.  This was a special personal challenge...
I hadn't made an Orange Peel quilt before but it became the one
I had to make for my son's wedding this year.


5.  In the most views category
 was my post for the First Blush blog hop.

I got to celebrate the first line of fabric by Red Ruby Designs!
I loved this fabric... and still have a lot of it stashed away!
The fabric was sent to me and 
I was allowed to do any pattern I wanted
with it. So I had fun... you can read about it in the post!

But the fun part is that it was partly
 a promotion for Fat Quarter Shop.
They have a block of the month 
starting using First Blush and a special book and ruler they designed.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!

I love your Paper Route quilt. I have that pattern (Summerville) and was wondering what fabric you used for it. Thanks.

Do you recall the pattern name for the log cabin Zen Chic quilt you pictured first on this post?
