Five Favorite Finishes in 2022

Cheryl with Meadow Mist Designs hosts a yearly linky party to celebrate projects made in the past year. After much deliberation, I present to you my five favorite finishes of 2022. First up is my Wolf quilt that was completed on 1/4/22. The pattern was Wolf Abstractions by Violet Craft, and the quilt measured 60″ x 65″. This was the first quilt I had quilted by Rebecca Grace Quilting. Please read her post here that shares the details about all the extra time and effort Rebecca puts into her quilting.


My next favorite 2022 finish is a project I wanted to make for a few years and finally had the time this past summer to focus on it. It is called Murmuration, and it measures 62″ x 72″. The pattern is by Rebecca@Bryan House Quilts, and it was also quilted by Rebecca Grace Quilting. See details about this quilt here.

I have one more favorite finish that was also masterfully quilted by Rebecca Grace Quilting. It is my Offset Gradients quilt that measures 54″ x78″. Read more about this quilt here and here.

My last two 2022 favorites are small projects that I actually quilted myself. The herringbone placemats pictured below were a belated housewarming gift for my niece, Mary Frances. Read more about these placemats here and here.

Finally my last favorite finish for the year is a small rectangular 10″ x 15″ pillow with a center of Sashiko cats stitched with Weeks Variegated Caribbean Size 8 thread, and the bordering fabric was quilted with Aurafil Jade 50 wt thread (4093).

    Hi Mary! What a fun retrospect of your quilt finishes. I have admired each of them individually, and I’m really glad I don’t have to pick a favorite. The wolf quilt – WOW. What did you do with that masterpiece? Was it gifted or are you enjoying it? The Offset Gradients is gorgeous and it reminds me slightly of the temperature tops you are working on now. Finally, the kitties on that alluring aqua/teal fabric is just fab. Great job, Mary! I can’t wait to see where you take us in 2023. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne
