Best of 2019

For the last five years, Cheryl over at Meadow Mist Designs has hosted the "Best of" the year event.  I always enjoy going back through my posts to see what quilts I made - some of my all-time favorites were made in 2019.


Early in the year, I finished my colorwash postage stamp quilt.  This one has become a favorite in my trunkshow.  People are always fascinated to hear how I made it and look at all the different fabrics used in this lovely scrap quilt.



I also finished my Splendid Sampler quilt this year.  This was probably the most work I have put into making a quilt - the blocks where 6" and many had dozens of pieces to them.  I did not make all 100 blocks and added in a few of my own designs.  I enjoyed the process of making this quilt but I found myself not that attached to it.  Right after I posted the finish, someone offered to buy it and it quickly was sent off to a new home.



The post with the most views this year was definitely my Scrappy Kaffe Fassett quilt.  I have made this design numerous times and it is always popular and shared by many.  This design is one of my Scrap-A-Palooza designs and I have been thinking about making another one.



The quilt most talked about was one I finished fairly recently.  It was a simple Color Block quilt that was one of last year's Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilts and was made entirely from 2.5" squares.  That's it!

I think that is what is so intriguing about this quilt.  



And my personal favorite finish for the year is my Improv Garden quilt.  It now hangs in my Livingroom and travels with me to trunkshows.  I start teaching this technique in March and can't wait to see what quilts get created in the future.



A big thanks to Cheryl for hosting this event.  I hope you take some time to check out her blog and the links to other bloggers that have linked up.  

You just might find some inspiration for your 2020 quilts!

  7. Love all your quilts Cynthia. Thank you for all the inspiration and eye candy over 2019. I look forward to seeing you create new and beautiful quilts in the new decade!! Doesn't that sound scary. If I had to pick one, it would be the colourwash one. Solely because I did a Y2K quilt out of 2.5 squares - 2000 of them colourwashed. Loved it. Hugs and blessings to you and your family for the New Year.

  11. Beautiful quilts and so remarkable since most are made with scraps. From following your blog, I know you are working on many different quilts at the same time, using up scraps and creating new ones. I am always impressed with your creations. Thanks for the show.

  20. Love all your projects, Cynthia, but the Colorblock quilt is oh so yummy!!! I am sure that the Improv Garden Quilt was a labor of love - one flower at a time. You have been an inspiration and I wish you lots of joy and creativity in the new year.
