So I've been doing this for a year now! It's a weird milestone in that it both feels like time has flown and that I've been doing this forever. I'm having such a great time and really enjoy interacting with my readers. Thank you all for being here. It wouldn't be nearly as fun without you!

This is my 127th blog post. I've decided I'll share a little of what I'm up to and some of my top posts. This month I've been teaching my son how to quilt. That's been super fun so far. I'm loving participating in mini swaps on Instagram. I'm trying to finish up some WIPs (ya know, so I can start some new projects!). Most importantly and excitedly I've been able to regularly work on my projects and I finished 11 quilts in the last year since starting the blog! For reference, my first 10 quilts took me over a decade. (gasp!) I'm excited by all the inspiration on Pinterest, Instagram and so many awesome blogs!

So what am I working on this week? I've cut out all my pieces for this fun rainbow inspired mini for the Rainbow Mini Swap on IG. Here's my palette.

My giant wonky star quilt is pinned and ready to quilt. (It's about time... it only took me 5 months to make the quilt sandwich!) It'll be awesome to knock it into the finished column next week.

And my newest quilt project: here's my Blogiversary Scrap Attack mini quilt top that I'll be giving away in my Grow Your Blog post this weekend in honor of my 1-year Blogiversary. Please come back Saturday night for your chance to win! (Pattern is Scrap Attack by Diane Bohn.)

Here are some of my most popular blog posts in the last year.
