Year in Review {2019 Finishes}

While this list might not be as long as last year's list, I am very proud of how many of these finishes were longer-term WIPs! I have marked the quilts that were on my WIP list in January with an asterisk.

1.* Blocked Rainbow: This was technically finished in 2018, but I didn't share it on the blog until after we moved in January.

2.* Dashing to the Chapel: This was made for an Island Batik blog hop featuring our Dashing to the Chapel pattern.

3. Stars at Play Mini Quilt: This was my February Island Batik project; I used scraps to make a cool mini quilt. Pattern available here.

4. Blooming Bear Tracks: This baby quilt was a double duty project; it was for a Benartex hop and was made for a sweet little lady born in March! Pattern available here.

5.* Orphan Block Mini Quilt: a quick and easy project to use an orphan block!

6. Twirls and Stripes: This was my "vintage inspired" project, and I am working on a pattern for it!

7.* Drift Away Quilt: This was a wedding gift for a college friend, made (almost) entirely from scraps!

8. Pink Stars Baby Quilt: Another IBA project, made with my Accuquilt cutter!

9. Faboolous Halloween Spooks Table Runner: This is the first of two iterations of this pattern that I made this year!

10.* Daisy Chain Baby Quilt: This is the test quilt that I made from our Daisy Chain pattern; it was finished in 2018, but I didn't share it until May 2019!

11. Plus Sign Quilt: Another IBA project made for our modern challenge!

12. Christmas Churns Quilt: I designed this for Moda Bake Shop using Little Tree by Lella Boutique.

13. Patriotic Table Topper: This really big Dresden Plate mini quilt is the perfect table topper!

14. Artsy Fartsy Hand Tree Mini: I had fun forcing my husband to participate in this project.

15.* Good Fortune Quilt: This was Bonnie Hunter's 2018 mystery quilt; I made half as many center blocks and adjusted the borders to fit.

16.* Double Delight Quilt: Another Bonnie Hunter pattern, this was my scrappy project in Spring 2018.

17.* April Showers Medallion Quilt: This was my Coast to Coast Travelling Bee quilt in 2107, finally finished!

18.* Magnolia Mystery Quilt: This was a mystery quilt that I did in 2017-2018; I modified the pattern slightly from the original.

19. Cotton + Steel Pineapple Log Cabin Quilt: I made the top as part of a Fat Quarter Shop hop.

20. Starburst Wall Hanging: I used our Starbursts pattern for my August IBA project.

21. Ohio Star Baby Quilt: This was an Accuquilt inspired project for Island Batik.

22. Scrappy Star Table Runner: I am on a crusade to crush my scraps, and this project did just that!

23. Moxi Charm Pack Quilt: This top was made on retreat and used up two charm packs I won in a giveaway years ago.

24. Halloween Spooks table runner in Island Batiks: The same, but different from my earlier Halloween Spooks table runner!

25 and 26. Hip to be Square quilts in Little Sir, Little Miss: these quilts are made with our Hip to be Square pattern and will be donated!

27. Faceted Churn Dash: This was such a good scrap buster! Pattern available on Payhip.

28. Jelly Hearts Table Runner: This is a new free pattern from the Fat Quarter Shop, made with a jelly roll!

29: Patchwork Stocking: I made this as part of a Fat Quarter Shop hop!

While I had a lot more finishes in 2018, I did make a small dent in some of my WIPs! On to 2020...finally!


  1. A year well spent. Those Island Batik challenges sure to force you to finish up projects. Good thing most of them are smaller sizes. Happy New Year.

  2. So many wonderful quilts! You had a banner year, Alison! I had forgotten about the Bake Shop pattern and am going to go look at it again. I might just need to make that one in non-holiday fabrics this year :)

  3. Wow, that looks like a productive year to me! I look forward to seeing what you make in 2020.

  4. A very busy, creative and productive year!! What more can a quilter ask for??!! 2020, here we come!!!

  5. Amazing! I have my Blocked Rainbow in a flimsy now, which I plan to quilt this year for sure. Happy New Year 2020!

  6. What a lot of finishes for 2019! It's always nice to finish UFOs that have been around for a while. Happy New Year!

  7. You've got so many great finishes. I loved your Daisy chain QAL. I wasn't able to finish mine but made progress during the break. Looking forward to seeing what you make in 2020!

  8. That's still a lot of great finishes! You had a really productive year. Wishing you equal success in 2020. Happy New Year!
