2017 Quilty Love Quilts – A Quilting Year in Review

Find all of the 2017 Quilty Love Quilts listed in this post.2017 Quilty Love Quilts

2017 was a good productive year with way more quilt finishes than I thought.  Surprisingly I completed 34ish quilts in 2017.  I don’t consider a quilt finished until it is completely done.  Quilted and bound.

2017 started off kind of slow with quilt finishes but I made up for it at the end of the year 😉

2017 Quilty Love Quilts

The first finish of the year is this Plus Squared quilt using Bonnie and Camille handmade fabrics.  I love this quilt so much!  This quilt went to my sister in law.

This Scrappy Log Cabin Quilt is one of my favorite quilts of the year.   Those gorgeous indigos and blues were fun to sew up.  This one has a lot of texture with linens and Art Gallery Denims.  The quilt was gifted to good friends.

Oh wait… this is another favorite!  I hosted a quilt along early in the year for the Ombre Gems quilt.  This is a scrappy version of Ombre Gems that I made using all Bonnie and Camille fabrics.

And I made yet another North Star Quilt at the end of the year.   This time a Tula Pink Christmas version!

I also made these quirky little Mug Rugs from the extra fabric.  This picture is before the binding but they were a gift and sent out before I could photograph them more 😉

So there you have it.. most of the quilts made in 2017.  I think I’m missing one or two.  I really expected to only have made 20 or so for the year so I was surprised by the higher number.  12 of the 34 quilts are baby quilts which are nice fast finishes.  I don’t make baby quilts usually so this was the year that changed 😉

All links to the blog posts are included.

All quilts (except one) were pieced and quilted on a Janome Sewing machine.  My machine is a Janome QDC4120.   I started using a Janome MC6700P in October.

Most of these patterns are Quilty Love Patterns.  Visit the shop below.
