1. My favourite mini quilt this year is Moody Blues.
It's my own design. I thoroughly loved every bit of the process of making it. It is one of the quilts that will be hanging at the Kingsville Library in January. I was asked to be the featured artist once again!
2. I ran my third annual QAL with great success: 18 quilts and/or flimsies got linked up in the final parade. This year it was another of my own designs, Beothuk Star. I remade it for the QAL as a baby quilt.
I'm pleased that the pattern is actually together and for sale in my Etsy shop! I have two other QAL patterns that have yet to get put into PDF form.😬
3. An extremely meaningful make for me this year was Nana's Closet, a quilt I made for my nephew out of my mum's clothes that he and my sister had set aside and sent to me after my mum passed away.
5. My favourite bed-sized quilt this year is My Mother's Lilacs, featured in the July/August issue of McCall's Quilting.

I am so proud of my work on this one: the design itself, how the centre 12" block is the Mother's Choice block, and the entire quilt is a gigantic 86" Mother's Choice block, and especially of the quilting I did.
Sadly, as of today I am suddenly locked out of the ability to comment on people's blogs on my MacBook. I've checked the previous fix I used to get me back in, which was unchecking the box 'Prevent cross-site tracking' under privacy, and it's still unchecked. So I am flummoxed. Anyhow, hopefully I can get it back in short order.
Here's to a wonderful 2020!
