Finishes in 2020

>> Thursday, December 31, 2020

 It's been hard this year to keep track of time and accomplishments. I'm so grateful that I had this time off to look back on what I finished this year. 

Believe Word of the Year quilted mini

I started the year with a mini quilt for my word of the year. Who knew how much I would need to believe this year!

rainbow stitched pincushion PFAFF performance icon QUILTsocial

I kept the rainbow theme going in February with this fun pincushion! It was one of my featured projects for my posts on QUILTsocial. You can find all the links in this blog post:

Oh My Stars quilt Pat Sloan pattern

I made and finished this Oh My Stars quilt in February and March. It was my guild's fun day project. This quilt has stayed in my house and is currently on my daughter's bed.

Rainbow quilt Pat Sloan May 2020

My daughter came home for a bit earlier in the year. We made a quilt together! This rainbow quilt lives with her and definitely was a highlight of my quiltmaking this year. You can read more about it and see that it has another quilt as it's backing - from 2015!

Modern Baby Quilt QUILTsocial

Time to create again with the PFAFF performance icon which led to this fun modern quilt. I played with the radiating stitches and used a story to help me quilt it. You can find the links and see closeups of these happy stitches in this post.

Bunny Lady quilt

At some point I also finally quilted my Bunny Lady quilt. This was a 10 year old UFO - I know I have more from 10 years ago that still need finished but this post is about finishes so we won't go there ;)

Free motion quilted heart cushion cover QUILTsocial

I tried free-motion quilting this year, thanks to the features on the PFAFF performance icon. This heart cushion cover was a fun challenge for me. 

#quiltblockmani Sleeping under the stars Summer Sampler quilt

Cushions are a quick finish! This one was fun too - a free block and one of my new patterns combined for a summer project. 

Dropping In quilt Sew Joy Creations

In August I hosted my first Sew Joy Sew Along and finished another quilt.

The Dropping In quilt is a quick project and a great pattern for bold fabrics. 
You can still follow the sew along posts to make your own this year.

Vintage Holiday Quilted bed runner QUILTsocial

Teaching full time during a pandemic left little mental time or energy for quilting for the last few months of the year. I did still have a few more projects for QUILTsocial and this bedrunner was one of them. I'm not sure if there hadn't been a pandemic that I would have reached into my saved fabrics and made this project.

free pattern 9s a Charm placemat pattern Sew Joy Creations

I now have 4 of these placemats finished. I wanted to update the photos for this free pattern and now I have a set of placemats to use between Christmas and New Years!

Pincushion and matching threadcatcher QUILTsocial

I finished up my QUILTsocial posts this year - with another pincushion! Can you really have too many LOL! I guess I'll have to put my thinking cap back on for next year's projects. 

Looking forward to another year of creating in 2021!

With Joy,

Sarah V
