My #2017bestnine became 18. I decided to include other highlights like smiles on workshop attendees, charity quilt I helped organize @fabric_smart and being in @themqg Fresh Quilting episode, seeing friends at #quiltcon2017 and Meeting Eleanor Burns , being on the MQG Board and even seeing all the challenge quilts at #sarasotamodernquiltguild & making time for quilts for family and friends. Finally I published Patriotic Modern Quilts. WOW——WHAT A YEAR!! And still 2 weeks to go.

What a year this has been! It was #quiltcon2017 and #igquiltfest that introduced me to the quilt community here on Instagram. I’ve learned so much from so many of you, made new friends who didn’t turn out to be serial killer like my family warned me they might be, and generally had a fantastic time. Thanks #igquilters! You are the best!!! #2017bestnine #quiltyfriendsarethebest #makersgonnamake #lifelonglearner

My best Mine is once again dominated by my City Sampler. A Tula Pink Dresden Plate made the cut probably due to Star Wars in the background. My son and DIL with the scrappy appliqué world map I made for their anniversary. Also included my #talltalesblock made for the Mini Pink Swap. And then there is my Big Sis and I beaming with our freshly purchased and signed Cotton+Steel Berninas in front of the Aurifil quilt at QuiltCon #2017bestnine #berninausa #tulapinkcitysampler #scrappyapplique #worldmap #dresdenplate #quiltcon2017

I took the #allsewnupsewingkit workshop at #quiltcon2017. It's been sitting on the shelf since then. I finally took it down and finished it up last week in less then an hour. #maychappell #baltimoremqg

The new issue of @todaysquilter is out now and I am so happy that I can finally share my Siddi Inspired Cushion! This was the result of attending @shrutinow excellent lecture on Indian quilting at #quiltcon2017. @patchworknomad has written a fascinating article about Shruti and Indian quilting and my cushion is the accompanying project. Read more about it in my blog post here

It’s coming along! I’m almost half way done with the construction of the #quiltconcharityquilt top 😊 If it weren’t for the pesky task of removing all the foundation papers I would have it done by now. Mr. Bean has been trying to help, but not surprisingly his assistance is a little chaotic! 😂 .

Very tempted to start this tesselate quilt kit that I got from #quiltcon2017 thanks #redthreadstudio however I do have a lot of fabric coming in from cyber Monday for several projects for people. Thanks @stashfabrics for those awesome deals 😅 #quilting #piecing #ombrefabric #tesselationquilt #olisoiron #omnigrid

So... this week I took a deep breath and entered my quilt Shining Through into #quiltcon2018. I’m used to Quiltcon non-acceptances, so the possibility of another one doesn’t bother me.

Another page is turned! I can't believe I've done these #monthlymarker posts for a year😊 Pattern is by @nohatsquilts - purchased at #quiltcon2017. It was made as a #challengequilt for our guild. We were to make something using our birthstone color. #monthmarker #foundationpieced #foundationpaperpieced #bling #birthstone #decemberbirthday

Another one from #theQWOLmailbag! This anonymous writer makes me ask, Yeah, what support have we gotten from #theMQG lately?? Transparent? Not very. And how much TP are they going through anyway? #boycottmqg We Are #theQWOL!

Black and White and Red All Over is always good 😀😀😀 The blocks are made using the Orange Blossom stencil from @plumeasypatterns that I bought at #quiltcon2017 in Savannah. #curvedpiecing #challengequilt #blackandwhiteandredallover

Thank you to everyone who came out yesterday for day one of our Charity Quilt Sew-In! We made such great progress that today we should be able to start sewing the rows together! Yippee!!!! It’s so much fun to spend time with everyone and see the quilt come together in true community spirit 😊

From #theQWOLmailbag...This is a great idea for guilds out there being threatened by #theMQG. It's unfortunate that they still do this, but they do...just ask the Tampa MQG.

The only way to get your guild to vote on leaving #theMQG is to talk to your board! If you don't speak your mind they'll never know what you're thinking... #boycottMQG We Are #theQWOL! #MQG #quiltcon #quiltconreject #quiltcon2017 #showusyourmqg #modernquilt #modernquilting #quilt #mqgswap #mqgsewday

Day 11 of #bpsewvember is [sewing buddies]! One of the highlights to moving across the country a few years ago was moving closer to my sewing buddy, @kati_bannister!!! Little did I know that would be happening but it did and it's the 💣. While we may not get to sew together much, we've gone to #quiltcon together, inspire and challenge one another, and talk, text, and share our love of sewing more than humanly possible 😂 I'm so lucky to have found a sewing buddy who gets it and has become a true friend. She also makes super adorable & sweet kids too 😍

Day 10 of #bpsewvember is [everyday]. I include sewing in my everyday life by 1) trying to sew everyday when possible or figuring out projects 2) talking sewing with my sewing buddy @kati_bannister 3) creating for my business, friends, family, and of course myself and 4) wearing sewing related things like my cool #quilter shirt from @makervalley. I love when it sparks quilting conversations in the wild. That's how I keep my love for sewing alive everyday. •

Day 6 of #bpsewvember is [bargain]. While not all of this was a bargain, a good chunk was. This is the haul from #quiltcon2017. My first ever time to quiltcon and holy moly! The giveaways, projects, and fabric deals were abundant. @kati_bannister and I were there when they opened and stayed til it closed. Well on the last day we found out Cotton and Steel would be giving away all the fabric they brought for their project table. We arrived as they brought out boxes and boxes of fabric! It was glorious! We also scored a jelly roll from the ladies @freespiritfabric on our way out. I came to quiltcon with very little quilt shop quality fabric due to cost and not having any shops nearby. Now that I have a nice stash from that trip, my love for the fabric has quadrupled! I want it all! So in the long run, it's probably not a bargain since I want to own all the modern fabric 😂

From #theQWOLmailbag...Yet another example of #theMQG being a hindrance to guilds, not a help. Empty promises, empty threats, and now thanks to them, one less quilt guild.
