My Best of 2019

It’s HARD to choose just one quilt that is my favourite for this year!  SEW … as you can see, I chose 8 of them.  I finished many many more, but these 8 are my favourite!  Well, there’s probably a few more that are also my favourite … but I figured I needed to limit the number!

You can see the original posts for the quilts by clicking on the quilt name.  All but the first quilt, Good Fortune, used Island Batik Fabrics (you can see all the Island Batik quilts HERE.)  Good Fortune was made from my stash and was a Bonnie Hunter mystery.  All of the quilts used Hobbs batting … 80/20 or wool … Aurifil thread was used in each project.  Each quilt was quilted on my domestic sewing machine – Janome 8900.

Friday Finish or Not

I have no finishes this Friday, but the quilt below is ready to be quilted.  I used the left-over fabric from a baby quilt I started in November.  I was able to cut most of the 5″ squares from the left-overs … I was a few squares shor … mostly because I cut some at 4.5″ instead of 5″ 😦 …  sew … I took the pieces that were too small and pieced a bunch of them together and then cut those pieces 5″ square.   It will work.  This is a pattern where you sew the blocks straight, do a few big cuts, rearrange the big cuts and you have a quilt that is on point.  Missouri Star has a YouTube Video that shows basically how to make this.   It’s pretty easy!

This quilt will also be donated to the guild.

One who sleeps under a quilt is covered by LOVE!

Happy Quilting!

  1. Hi Gail, your quilts are all so lovely. It’s always hard to choose favourites – just like our children! Those are such cute baby quilts, so colourful and fun. I’m sure that they will be well loved. Thanks so much for linking up to Free Motion Mavericks.

    • Hi Emily!
      I’m finding that I usually need to make 2 quilts with fabric … the one quilt is planned from the beginning and the other is made of left-overs.
      Happy Quilting! 🙂


  3. Hello Gail! I hope you are enjoying your Christmas season! I certainly have!
    I have been missing from my sewing room and blogland for a spell now. I have also been horrible at my PHD work this year. If you host again, I will participate and hopefully do much better in 2020. I will be browsing your blog to check out all that you have been up to lately.

    As for this post, I am loving your butterfly quilt so much! The corner blocks are so perfect for this quilt and really frame it beautifully. I do think my very favorite is your blue one. If feels sort of stained glassy to me. It is gorgeous! I love the way you alternated lighter blue blocks with darker ones.
