Although it was hard to narrow down the choices, these are my favourites:
1. First Finish of 2019
It was wonderful to start the year with finishing Circle of Squares which was a Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilt in production since 2016. It used up 160 different 2.5" squares. I enjoyed piecing the RSC blocks over the years, quilting the circular design, and even enjoyed the winter photo shoot with hearty friends!
2. String Quilt
This project was inspired by Gwen Marston and finished in time for the "Dust off a Quilt Book" blog hop hosted by Bea. I was proud of the fact that nothing was purchased to make this quilt. Everything was left over from other projects - the strings, the batting scraps, the backing strips, and the binding. This was the perfect retreat project - no thinking required and lots of hand stitching. I am preparing another one to work on at this year's retreat.
3. Save The Bees
4. Scrap Dance Tango
This was a mystery quilt from Carole at From My Carolina Home blog. It all started with the gift of HST blocks from a quilting friend and I just love how it turned out! Carole is planning another scrappy mystery for 2020 called The Twist so that will be fun!
5. On Ringo Lake
This is a Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt started in 2017. It is intensely pieced and quilted, and is very heavy. I love the change I made to the design by turned the sashing units into a lovely border and think the gold and blue combination is awesome in this quilt!
Pop over to the Best of 2019 linky party and see the amazing shares.
I am delighted that my collection of favourite finishes includes so many of my favourite quilting things - scrappy quilts, BOMs, favourite quilt pattern designers, Rainbow Scrap Challenge projects, and mystery quilts. Here's to more of the same in 2020!
Happy New Year quilty friends! You can probably guess that I am starting the new year properly... with a new quilting project!
HAPPY AND SAFE NEW YEARS. Happy sewing in 2020
Your quilts are all lovely! Happy Stitching in 2020.
Happy New Year! Great years in review.
Beautiful, beautiful quilts, Kathy! You really knocked these out of the park, no wonder they are your favorites. I love seeing them again, too. Happy New Year :)
I love your circle of squares quilt Kathy. I still haven't finished mine which I started a bit before yours. Well the top is done. I have to quilt it. 20 finishes is a lot. I am very impressed.
Happy New Year Kathy - love following along to see what you are up to and enjoy linking to you every Sunday
20 finishes is a great year. I really have to buckle down and finish some projects in 2020. I have 3 of Carole's mysteries, 1 Bonnie mystery (not counting Frolic), 1 Pat Sloan quilt along, 1 Diane Knott sew along (in progress) and numerous RSCs that all need attention.
What a great year of finishes! Best of luck for continued progress in 2020.
Lovely finishes for the year ! May your 2020 be a Happy, Healthy and productive one...hugs, Julierose
What beautiful finishes of 2019! Happy New year.
Congratulations on your finishes. Thank you for the slow stitching Sundays. A Happy and Healthy 2020 to you.
Good to see your Finishes! Have a Happy New Decade!
Great finishes for the year. Love the favorite ones you picked. Sending you good vibes for the coming year and hoping we get to visit more than one time!! Hugs friend!!
I really like your Bee block that you show. I did not participate in the sew-along but probably should have. Bees are important. So much more than a person would have thought.
Happiest of New Year's to you!
20 Finishes! That is awesome! You really had a great year.:) So fun to follow along with your on your journey!
Twenty finishes is pretty impressive! Congrats on a very successful 2019. Wishing you an even better 2020.
You always do a great job, so every finish is worth noting, but I think of the ones you shared here, Scrap Dance Tango is my favorite!
Some great finishes for 2019. Let's see what 2020 brings.
Happy New Year to you and your loved ones. I always enjoy reading your blog, so happy and enthusiastic, and full of beautiful projects.
It was lovely to see some of your lovely quilts like Scrap Dance Tango and Save the Bees. Wish you all the best for 2020 and then some! ;^)
Lots of scrappy fun in your sewing room all year--thanks for sharing all your projects all year. I am amazed at how much you get done on so many different challenges and mysteries! Happy New Year.
I've enjoyed reading about your quilting activities all year long. Enjoy your sewing today. Happy New Year.
Congrats on such great finishes for 2019!
