In looking back on 2015, I see that I did more stitching than I thought.
Here is a mosaic of my makes.

The Motley Wheel
I also made several garments for myself (5 skirts, 2 dresses, 2 tops) and my girls (4 skirts, 3 tops and 2 dresses). I first started sewing by making garments and it felt like I came full circle by getting back into garment sewing again this year.
Of these makes, I have my favorites:
Ascend: I almost didn’t make this quilt because I didn’t think I had enough time to get it done, but imagine if I didn’t, I wouldn’t have won an award at QuiltCon 2015!
Red X: This quilt taught me that you can do a lot in a little bit of time. A late night moment to make a quick improv block inspired a whole new quilt.
The Motley Wheel: My first independent pattern.
My Japanese X and + mini quilt: This quilt was among one of the finalists in the Cotton & Steel IG mini quilt swap.
Sewing Circle Tote: This pattern has more than 80 steps, and I added some extra steps by sewing in a zipper. When I finished it, I felt a major sense of accomplishment.
I’m hoping that 2016 will be an even better year: more stitching time, more finishes, fewer scraps, and a smaller w.i.p.s pile!
What are you hoping for in 2016?
