I was amazed to see that this will be my 120th post this year! Wow!
1. I ended 2015 blogging about this quilt, and began 2016 with it as well. It is my Scrap Vortex quilt, which I finished at the very beginning of January, after working on it throughout 2015. You can read more about it here.
This post got lots of views and lots of comments! I really love this quilt and had a great time making it - it definitely stretched my scrappy quilt-making skills!
2. I participated in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge for the first time this year, and it has been lots of fun, both creating my own chosen blocks for projects throughout the year, and also getting to know the other quilters who participate. Being part of the RSC this year has lead me to blog more and to try all kinds of different blocks and designs - big and small. Two of my RSC projects are on their way to being finished, a 16 patch quilt and Scrap Jar Stars.

3. My post titled Unexpected, back in April, told about my experience with falling and breaking my wrist. No fun at all! But I sure appreciated my bloggy friends who offered lots of encouragement for me to continue sewing through the healing process.
4. In spite of my broken wrist, I was able to finish this wall-hanging, that I called "Circle of Friendship," for a special friend for her 60th birthday in May. I loved working on this piece, and am proud that my HST skills have really improved this year!
5. And finally, I tried some improv quilting this year! I participated in the Crosscut quilt-along on Instagram with Debbie from A Quilter's Table, and made this piece, called Cream and Crimson. You can read more about my process here.
It's been a fun and busy year in my sewing room and on my blog. I'm so happy to have tried new things and made new quilting friends throughout the year. Here's to a great 2017, friends!
