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!
This morning, I discoverd that I have actually only written a Year in Quilts blog post twice—in 2013 and 2017.
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!
I look forward to seeing all these posts of previous quilt years…many before I knew what a quilt was or knew who you were!!
Thank you Jill! Happy Holidays!

Daisyandjack- If you go to my about page and type in Albert Hoffman’s Obit there will be at least one more post about that quilt. Thank you for your comments and happy holidays!
I did enjoy seeing your older quilts. I think everything changed with Family Plaid.
