My good friend Cheryl from Meadow Mist Designs is hosting the Best of 2020 link party where we get an opportunity to highlight our “best” 5 posts from 2020. There are no rules on how you define and share your best posts, and I hope you join in with us!
Most Popular Tutorial – 12 Block Circle Setting Quilt Top
While the 12 block circle setting quilt top tutorial is probably not my favorite tutorial that I’ve shared this year, it has the most page views and honestly I have already been tagged on Instagram with several quilts that have been made using the tutorial, which is excellent! What I love about the tutorial is that it encourages quilters to turn orphan blocks into a finished quilt.
Most Popular Pattern Release – Downstream
I released 11 (!!) quilt patterns in 2020, and hands down I can say that people were the most excited about Downstream. Downstream was designed while thinking about the intersection of glassy corporate office buildings, urban living, and natural spaces. The modern, off-grid pattern is offered in six sizes: wall hanging, baby, lap, large lap, twin, and queen.
Most Viewed Finish – Splendid Sampler 2 Quilt
Perhaps it’s because my Splendid Sampler 2 quilt finish was my first finish of 2020, but I suspect that it’s a popular quilt finish because I created my own unique layout using the 42 blocks I pieced during the quilt along.
My Favorite Finish – Mum’s Garden
Hands down my favorite finish this year is Mum’s Garden. It was a very unusual color palette for me and I loved working with the rich, warm colors. It started my creative juices flowing and lead to a lot of piecing exploration, and it was gifted a friend who means a lot to me. There’s nothing I don’t love about Mum’s Garden!
My Second Favorite Finish – Sesen
It’s hard to pick favorites, so I’ll round out my top posts with my most recent finish, Sesen, which is high on my favorites list, too. It must be something I like if I’m already planning to make a second version!
