Best of 2016 :: Top Five

You never know just how productive your year has been until you revisit it and have to pick your five best posts to share!  Cheryl @Meadow Mist Designs is hosting 'The Best Of 2016' Linky Party.  



How do you pick the top five?  Was it the posts with the most views?  Your favorite quilt? The most comments?  That is left to the blogger to decide!

#1:  Raw I
This is one of my favorites!  It was hands down one of the craziest, insane and certifiable projects I ever attempted.  Raw edge weaving with the tiniest of tiny scraps.  This was my first and certainly it won't be my last.  Exploring new and different...I like that!  




#2:  Anomalous
I seem to always go for the scraps!  This quilt was the first quilt of 2016.  Unintentionally the past few years had always started with a quilt made with my hand dyed fabric.  This time I used scrap strips that I saved from numerous projects.  As always, I knew they would one day find a home and a place in a quilt...and they did!  


#3.  Micro Mini Mini Quilt
It was the year of the Mini Mini craze and I felt the need to see just how small I could go. When I made this, I was sure it was the smallest thing I would ever try or paper piece.  Well, let's just say never say never!



#4.  Wonky Block Tutorial
As far as tutorials this year, this was pretty darn popular!  I showed how you to give something a 'wonk' without too much work!


#5.  Phantom Triangles
Oh how I love this one!  Favorite quilting, favorite design, favorite idea!  It was just plain fun from start to finish!


Looking at my picks for the top five, it appears I have an obsession with rainbows. Hmmm...I'm pretty sure most of my year was filled with any number of rainbow concoctions! 

The recap of 2016 is complete!  I'm looking forward to exploring, experimenting, excavating and excogitating in 2017!
