Happy New Year!
Looking back, I think 2014 was my most productive year of quilting so far. I finished 6 quilts, an astonishing 4 of which were started and finished the same year. Well, that’s astonishing for me!
Top row: Canada Quilt, Sparkling Strings, Star Steps
Bottom row: Starlight Wishes, Sparkling Trail, Forty-Eight
I started and finished a few small projects.
Snowflake runner and pillow, Christmas Snowflakes, Birthday runner, Stretch
I also started and finished the top for my son’s next quilt. I have been hand quilting it and estimate that about 1/4 of it is quilted. My goal is to get it into the 2015 review of finishes!
I spent a good chunk of the fall designing snowflake blocks and turning them into patterns to share in my Snowalong Sew-along. I’m still reeling from realizing that each of the six patterns was downloaded at least 700 times, some as many as 900! Thanks for the encouragement, everyone!
I also added 4 new quilt patterns to my shop.
Now to start 2015! I spent the day today setting up my payhip shop so I can continue to sell to any European Union customers without falling foul of EU tax laws. I reformatted my “pattern for sale” page too (see the tab at he top of this page). It was rather tedious way to start 2015, but now that’s it’s all set up I feel like I have a clean slate to get started sewing and designing for the new year.
Off I go! That little owl I showed a couple of days ago is hooting loudly. He needs borders…
