Here in the limbo land between Christmas and New Year’s Day it’s always fun to reflect on the year that was and think about the year to come. (Surely it’s got to be better?)
Cheryl at Meadow Mist Designs has an annual “best of” round up of quilting blog posts, which helps prompt such reflection. So here are my Top 5 blog posts for the year!
Number 1 – Lollies Quilt Pattern
This one surprised me! I love a good surprise. The post is very straight forward but I think it got a lot of interest on Pinterest, which helped its stats.
I still love this pattern – it’s so easy to whip one up from stash and it gives you plenty of room to play with your colour placement (diagonal rows, radiating out, etc).
Number 2 – In The Stars Quilt Pattern
Following on from No 1, No 2 is another quilt – this time the In The Star pattern. I think this version made from Ruby Star Society fabrics really popped.
Number 3 – Star Quilt Block Tutorial
After I made the Lollies quilt I had some HSTs left over which I didn’t want to see go to waste. Hence the need for this tutorial. This step-by-step shows you how to make a 9″ (finished) star block, but there’s also an option to get instructions for 12″ and 15″ (finished) blocks as well.
Number 4 – Alex Quilt Block Tutorial
Number 5 – My Great Quilting Idea
I really had fun with this post, which was written on 1st April. *snicker*
I feel sorry for the December blog posts as they don’t stand a chance. I’ve just released the Stash Knockout pattern and it’s such a great stash buster that I wanted to share it again.
If you’re after a fun, easy project to take you into the New Year with a smaller stash, then this is the pattern for you. 5 sizes, FQ, F8 and jelly roll friendly – it’s got you covered.
My overall Top 5 for the history of my blog (over 10 years’ of posts now!) doesn’t coincide with any of the posts for 2021. These oldies are all tutorials; it makes me so happy to see things I’ve written (some over 7 years ago – and it shows 😬) remain useful to readers.

Have a quilting blog? Join the Fun!
I’ll be linking up with Meadow Mist Designs Best of 2021, join the party if you also blog.
Sadly, blogging seems to have been on the decline in the past few years (not me, I love it). Link ups are a great way to find quilting blogs that are still active.
