Best of 2015

Cheryl of Meadow Mist Designs has a brilliant way for you to share your 'best' of 2015.  She has some suggestions on how to select your five best posts, write up a post, and then share on the linky party.  This certainly helped me as I was trying to compile my end of the year post and this works perfectly for it.

This post on borders helped me to realize I AM NOT ALONE - so many others put off adding those borders, question how to border, and is it the best border.  OR like me, chose quilt patterns and designs where there is just no need for a border.

Hands 2 Help is a very dear project for me as I do love to make charity quilts.  This year there was an awesome share of 'sweet 16' patterns to encourage quilters to participate.  Some super quest quilters sharing posts - to which I was pleased and honored to be one of them.

Dust Off Those Books
A project and linky I started in 2014 and 2015 saw some amazing projects, too.  An idea to hit those books, magazines, filed away projects and actually use them rather than having them collect dust!


I know it has been a huge help to me in finally playing with some great projects that never would have come to be.  And by pulling those books, I found more inspiration - did some clear out (we grow in our taste) - and library shared with some students.

Coming in August! 

Another dear project to me is the annual Pets on Quilts Show hosted by LilyPad Quilting.  Many quilters are pet owners and/or pet lovers and we all have those photos and quilts to prove it.

And I rounded out the end of the year (fall into winter) with doing some traveling to demonstrate and teach handquilting and history of quilts/quilting.  Sharing the venue with other local fiber artisans at many of the events - meeting wonderful people and such joy in the experience of sharing this with others. I look forward to doing this again next year.
