Looking Back at 2016

There are so many ways to evaluate a year's worth of blogging.  For this blog I've chosen to share the five most viewed posts.  Most of them were viewed because they were finishes linked to Amanda Jean's finish it up Friday at crazy mom quilts.  I'm grateful for all the bloggers who have link-ups where other bloggers can share their posts.

In reverse order, these were the five most viewed posts.

Fifth.  Proportion, Size, Symmetry, Balance -- How Does a Quilter Decide?
There were many comments and lots of great feedback on this post.

Fourth.  Morning Stars for Isaac:  a Finish
I like the symmetry and rhythm of this quilt combined with the uneven stars.

Third.  Scrap Hot Pads
Who would have thought a post about scrappy hot pads would have so many views?!

Second.  A Finished Top
This post published before the fourth place one, above.

First.  Little Four-Patch, Finished!
This was my first finish of 2016, a very small one.  But a finish is a finish, right?

I'm a slow quilter and most of my quilts get posted several times during their progress from first cut to finish.  Thank you to you readers who visit and read, and especially to you who leave kind comments and are patient with the repetition. 

I'm linking this post to Best of 2016 Linky Party at Meadow Mist Designs.  Thanks for hosting, Cheryl.

Happy New Year to you!



  1. I love the quilt that is listed as the fifth most viewed post. It looks so comfortable and cozy. My favorite part is the pale striped border.

    1. I like that quilt, too, Robin. I wish I'd made it but it was one I saw at an antique mall. As I remember, it was very thick and I thought it would be wonderful to be cuddled under it.

  2. The nine patch quilt is my favorite.

    1. Yes, I like that one a lot too, Karen. It was one I saw at an antique mall and it just looked so comfortable and comforting. I wish I could get the hang of making quilts that look old.

  3. Morning Stars for Issac caught my eye.
    I too am a slow quilter, I just took a month and a half off from any projects to focus on the holidays.

    1. Morning Stars was a fun quilt to make, Tami, and so easy. If I make another, though, I think I will tame the colors a little or make it much larger so the colors repeat more. I'm just about to get back to quilting again after not touching my sewing machine during December. I love the change the December holidays bring but I love getting back to a regular routine, too.

  4. Great finishes! (I love Crazy Mom Quilts' Friday link up too!) Thanks for linking up with the Best of 2016 linky party!

    1. Thanks, Cheryl, both for the comment and for the link-up.


I appreciate your comments and look forward to reading what you have to say. Thanks for stopping by.
