For several years Cheryl has hosted the Best of 2020 with just a few rules and suggestions for selecting 5 posts from the year. I decided to chose 5 that represent me as a quilter.
I had a lot of people confused with my 'goal' theme on the side bar. I had collected a number of family fabric, patterns, and designs of various animals I felt it a good year to get to them. AND it turned out to be a good way to deal with the stressful 2020 year.
There were large quilts of bears, moose, horses (and a Unicorn), cat theme fabric collection used up and these fun CHICKENS using up a lot of my homespuns. There were smaller quilts of kitties, dogs, ostriches, triceratops and owls. I still have a few animal quilts to make, but will save those for some'fun' days of quilting to ease any stress in 2021.
I love to participate in a lot of Blog Hops thru the year and 2020 saw almost one a month. This was a really fun one and showed that even the simplest 'SQUARE" could make some great quilts. The boxed square is a pattern I frequently use to eat up scraps and for making donation quilts.
This was the first year that I participated in OMG - one monthly goal - and it made for a lot of projects moved into the next phase and even pushed the envelope on getting a LOT of quilts "quilted". This one is special as it was a finish of one of my Mom's 'project in a bag' from 50 years ago.
MY GUILD is a big part of my quilting and these people do so much for their communities from heart to hand. We were so missing our gatherings due to lock down, that I called an outdoor social gathering once restrictions lifted. Yes, we have some 'roosters' in our coop. They enjoyed this so much that we decided to meet once a month thru the summer (we usually take the summer off) as outdoor social time and they were well attended.
Another blessing came from the Covid Lock Down - my daughter working from home finally had time to enjoy her quilting as well as teaching the next generation quilter. This is my 5 yr. old grand daughter who loves scrappy and bright. She even likes to design her own - maybe there's a book in the future?
