No, that’s not a typo. I sat down this morning to write the blog post The Year in Quilts 2019.
The first step was to see how I had structured this blog post in the past. I went to my ABOUT page and typed in Year in Quilts.
In my mind, I have been writing a Year in Quilts blog post since the beginning of this blog, which began on December 27, 2012. Seven years ago!
The rules on when I actually finish a quilt are not clear—some quilts are started in one year and finished in another.
And some quilts (I have two in my studio right now) are finished in one year, but they are not photographed, sleeved, and labeled until much later.
So, today, I decided that the year a quilt belongs in is based on when it is finished AND photographed.
I am going to take the next few days to actually created The Year in Quilts for every year that I have been professionally documenting my work.
I hope you will enjoy following along.
In the early years, I really only finished and photographed a few good quilts.
So I am grouping the years 2004—2009 which also includes Stung by a Quilting Bee, my very first quilt.
Up next, 2010.
Happy Solstice People!
