Best of 2018


I would like to thank Cheryl of Meadow Mist Designs for hosting the "Best Of" linky party again this year.  We could chose 5 posts from the year and that was hard when you do a lot of posts.  Please be sure to visit - and even take part in - HERE.

 

I chose one of my scrappy posts to represent my usual style of quilting.  I do a Monday Making and Scrappy Wednesday post each week, but this one also represents the RSC (Rainbow Scrap Challenge) and my annual quilt for the Pantone color of the year.  I am not a purple fan, but this quilt absolutely thrilled me.  I used the RSC this year to make a full size quilt using the color of the month instead of a select block - so I had a lot of quilts this year.



I like to participate in a lot of blogger Hops and chose THIS ONE because it was also a new technique' to me for the year and I shared a tutorial.  I'll be expanding on this in the New Year as I plan to take a few classes on using different overlay technique's.


I had to select my post for the Pets on Quilts quilt show which I look forward to each year.   Both of my furkids have been top bananas in this show in the past, so this year I chose to enter in the pet themed quilt  catagory. 


Another annual event I like to participate in is the H2H as charity quilts are a priority for me.  I get a lot of scraps and estate fabric clean-outs gifted to me and I feel they should be re-gifted as quilty hugs.  You can read this post for 2018 HERE.


As I stated before, I love doing a lot of the blogger Hops and was thrilled to be invited to participate in the Quilters Meet & Greet which was my most visited post for the year.  THIS POST gave me a chance to show what I am as a quilter and share some of my most memorable quilt moments.

Thank you for stopping by and please be sure to visit the other link ups.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  7. One of the things I like about your quilts is that even when you dress them in modern styles, I'm still comfortable with traditional elements I can find in them. =) Beautiful quilts, and the log cabin bordered one (Pets on Quilts) is one of my favorites.

  10. I ended up donating a box of fabric to quilters in Paradise, CA. I have so little quilting time, I wish I could make quilty hugs, maybe in my future.

  12. Sharon, I always look forward to your inspiring, upbeat post and even this old b*&ch (I mean dog) has learned many a trick from you and am looking forward to learning more in 2019, My eyes and ear sure perked up when I saw and heard about overlay techniques. Happy New Year and Belated Birth of Our Savior, my friend!
