When trying to figure out why last year seemed so darn weird, I reviewed both my photos and my blog posts. (Sense of weirdness explained here.) I also checked my stats to see which posts had the most views. As it turns out, only two posts from last year finished in my top 10. First was the aptly named How to Finish UFOs. The other one was Carousel,the Kaleidoscope Quilt. The quilt is pictured above. My all-time most viewed post, including last year, was Economy Block ANY Size! (With Cheat Sheet).
There are a few other blog posts I think are worth highlighting, though they are not necessarily about quilting or quilts.
The posts I most enjoy writing are those that teach me something. Whether it is by articulating process on my own projects, discussing design principles and elements, or considering how we limit ourselves with labels, these posts push me farther in understanding how and why I create.
As we go into this new year, I thank you sincerely for reading. If you follow this blog, thank you for that, as well. There are so many ways you can spend your time, and I’m touched that you choose to spend some of it here.
P.S. WordPress just notified me this is my 500th post on this blog.
