My Sewing Year in Review 2016

I do like to look back  over the past year to see what I have created with my fabrics and threads.  Here is what I made in 2016:

I apologize for the horrible formatting.  I had so much trouble posting all these photos.  I may never do a "Year in Review" post ever again!  I'm a much better quilter than blogger.


  1. That's a lot of work for a year. As for posting photos, if you have photoshop or something you can put 12 pictures on one 12" page and only have to post one picture to the blog.

    1. Thank you Barbara! Unfortunately I don't have photoshop...

  2. Girl is there 36 hours a day in your area? You put in a lot of hours on all of this last year. I commend you. Did you use flannel on your rag quilts like the black and white and the peach, purples and yellow. They look so thick. Thank you for sharing.

    1. Bevenator, I 've got to do it. I am a part time teacher 4 days a week and this is helping me to earn extra income.

      I did use flannel on almost all my rag quilts on 1 2 or all 3 layers. Sometimes I put fleece in between to make them really fluffy.

  3. Flo, For so long I have admired your talent and how forthcoming you are with all your tips and instructions. I finally decided to try a small rag quilt for my first grand baby on the way...yikes..i used a cotton top, fleece middle, and flannel back...well have you ever heard a sewing machine "grunt" was everything I could do to sew the seams I doing something wrong? Yes I put on a walking foot... and clip? I think I have permanently damaged my wrist and fingers, I told my husband I don't think I can cook or clean EVER again.. lol could you share with me how I or what machine to go through all the layers and what do you use to clip your seams....Thank you and don't ever let someone tell you rag quilts are easy!!! In love with your work!! Glenda from Canada xx

    1. Hi Glenda!!! I have done cotton/fleece/flannel many times with no trouble so I'm thinking it may be your machine. I use an all metal, old model (1980's) Kenmore. Do you have a more modern machine that's all plastic. Maybe just try cotton/flannel/flannel. I think the best scissors for cutting rag quilts are called heritage. They have blue handles. I will post a picture on the blog. I hope that helps. 😊
