2014 in Review

Wow, it was an exciting year around here this past year. We had so much fun! It started with a Mystery Quilt. I was thrilled to see all the gorgeous quilts that resulted from that little adventure. The entire pattern can be found here for free.

And there were quite a few mini of the month patterns, not every single month, but I tried! It was so fun that I think we will have a few more of these next year.

I went to my very first Quilt Market in Pittsburgh. It was overwhelming and amazing!

Then there was the flood...do we really need to discuss that again? Ugh. Glad that is history!

Then there was the American Made Brand debut that I was lucky enough to be a part of.

And lots more 10 minute tips.

Not to mention some teaching and workshops. I love meeting quilters and spending time with folks who love this crazy fabric obsession as much as I do!

And let's not forget that I had fun with my family on a Cruise and a quick trip to California.

There were also a few more tutorials...

And more than a few book reviews.

I was honored to be on yet another calendar!

But the quilt highlight had to be my very first COVER quilt. I still can't believe it!

2015 will bring many more adventure no doubt. There will be more magazine quilts, another calendar quilt, and the very best event will be finishing my book and waiting for it to be published in early 2016. I'll see my girl turn 18 and enter her senior year (sniffle) and watch my boys turn 17. There will be lots more horse shows and track meets, cross country races and local runs. There will be travel adventures and lots of puppy kisses. There will fun, fabric, family and surprises I can't even predict. I hope you will continue to join me on this crazy journey.

No wonder I'm so tired.

Enjoy every stitch!
