Top 10 Blog Posts of 2019

I thought it might be fun to see the top 10 blog posts of 2019 and what was most exciting to my followers. While I don't have tens of thousands of followers, I do have a few thousand who visit each week to get quilt-y ideas and lots of patterns. Here is my countdown for 2019, ending with the post with the highest numbers of visits.

NUMBER 10: February 12 - Free Pattern Day: Frosted Blocks
This is a fun post that showcases not one, not two, not three, not four, but FIVE quilts of mine that use the same technique. Check out the most recent one: Frosted Blocks for Windham Fabrics

Candy Cane Lane: Frosted
Check out the link next to the date to see the other four quilts. Such a fun way to showcase some novelty prints.

NUMBER 9: July 17 - Hanukkah in July and Free Pattern

The Dreidel block is part of the Cookie Cutter Block of the Month series and you can make this for next year! I made three!

NUMBER 8: August 4 - Cutting Hexagons for English Paper Piecing

Check out the formulas that work for ANY size hexagon. You don't need a template for each one. There is NO guessing. I share a formula that works every time!

NUMBER 7: September 26 - Geo Pop and Seven Sisters Variation

Seven Sisters is a vintage pattern with a LOT of y-seams. I removed them (of course; I'm the Queen of Simple). I show several steps to get to this quilt using this new collection from Benartex Fabrics. Click the link to see some quilts from my students from a workshop in 2017.

And, the MOST POPULAR post from 2019 is the Cookie Cutter Hearts quilt and block! I have made a lot of variations. This one has little dancing hearts on both sides of the 10" center block.
