Quilty recap, the photos - 2015

2015 Finished Quilts

I wanted to take a look at what I have made in 2015. First, the quilts, and other projects. One of my goals was to focus on making quilts, not other things. I see that I mostly stuck to that plan. I finished 13 quilts and three other projects.

2015 Bee and Round Robin blocks

I was a member of Bee Sewcial this year, which is a bee that my friend Stephanie from Spontaneous Threads and I conceived of and run. Bee Sewcial will continue into the next year, and I am so glad as it is a source of monthly inspiration and challenge. I also joined an international round robin where 6 of us are making a mini quilt - so the challenge is to add something small to each quilt as it arrives. This mosaic has my contributions to each, as well as my contribution to Marci's baby quilt, which I also quilted.

There is also a link for your best - most visited - blog posts of 2015, so, leaving out giveaways, blog hops and link ups, here are my most visited posts, starting with the most visited to least:


1. Pow - Ta Da! and a tutorial

Big Tote

2. A bit about Quilt Market, Spring 2015


3. Hint - Ta Da!


4. Echoes Ta Da! & she was in the QuiltCon magazine too

QuiltCon 2015 Pin Swap

5. QuiltCon 2015 - there was sharing

I found this an interesting exercise, in that statistics are no always indicative of much. However, I was pleased to see that my blog gets the most visits when I speak about new quilts I made or about quilt industry events as those are things that I find the most interesting too.

And I went and made my best nine on instagram (at and this is what resulted. I guess I have shared a lot of photos of Echoes and people seem to like it too.

Well, that's 2015 recapped in photos, I'll see about reviewing some milestones and making a new focus in another post soon.

I'm linking up with Cheryl at Meadow Mist Designs, where you can check out a number of beautiful blogs too.

I hope you are enjoying the holidays, I have taken the week off and am still unpacking, organizing, visiting, eating and generally having a lot of fun.

Leanne, you had such a fabulous year. Your Echoes quilt is one of my favorites. So glad I got to meet you, if just for a short time!

Debbie said...

Beautiful. So good to see some of your makes again.

I found much the same thing about my Instagram Best 9 - I shared a lot of one particular quilt (and it was well liked, thankfully!). Going through the process of looking at statistics for the year was an interesting exercise, and it is good to know your readers resonate with what you enjoy most, too. I hope you have a very Happy New Year.
