2015 A Year In Review

I'm running about two weeks behind already this year.  Being in Arizona with the grandkids put me a little behind but it was well worth it.  Of course that's the story of my life.  It seems like I'm always a day late and lots of dollars short.

It also seems like 2015 was a blur... Not sure where it went....

January's finished projects included this cross stitch project for the Tammy For All Seasons Blog Hop.

February brought a Post Card exchange

March brought a move to the Frozen Tundra, aka DeKalb IL.  It was sub zero temps and wind chills of negative 30 degrees the 3 days the moving truck guys unloaded all of our life possessions.

April was finally back to quilting

I published a new pattern Hearts Desire

Some Flimsy quilting...

After all the years in quilt guilds, I finally have a name tag!

Another Flimsy finished... Strip Twist by Bonnie Hunter

Addicted to Scraps for Quiltmaker Magazine ... Idaho Square Dance with Texas Swing... 

May was graduation, graduation, graduation!

Nine Inside Nine ... my own design

Another of my own design... Friendship Nines...

June, yikes the year is half over!

A QOV finish in July... another one of my own designs

The EQ7 Seasonal Sampler in August

Queenie was struck by lightening in September so not much completed projects for that month.  

October happenings included...

Wow!  November is here already!

Two more Flimsies finished...

Retro Happy, my last project for Quiltmaker's Addicted to Scraps Team

Jeepers!   It's December!  Another year down in the history books.

Another Lone Star finish ....

A few Art Satchels and an apron for Christmas gifts...

2016 promises to be just as exciting.  I have goals for Magazine publications and maybe a book, lots of blog hops, a quilt along, some linky parties, and a block of the month starting soon.  I have it designed,  just need to get the first few blocks going.  Can't decide if I'm going to do a mystery or show you what it looks like first.  What do you prefer?  



  1. All of your projects from last year look amazing Doris! For your block of the month, I don't do mysteries, I'd hate to spend all that time on a project only to find I didn't like the end product. I know others love the mystery element though - Cheryl from Meadow Mist Designs did a quilt along recently and she left it a mystery on her blog, but emailed a picture of the finished to quilt to those who wanted it at the start. It would make a little more work for you, but would probably result in more people joining in.

  2. I can see where last year went for you - you were super prolific!!! I'm with Jen, I want to see the finished quilt first! It helps me with choosing fabrics and colors. I've collected the the clues for some of Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilts, but didn't care for the completed quilt, so I didn't make them. I need more control then a mystery quilt gives me!!


Your comments make my day. I love to hear what you have to say. Please leave me a comment.
