The year 2022 review, Quilting Projects I worked on this year.

I reviewed back on what I worked on this year or at least the one that has been blogged about. Because honestly,  I don’t really remember what’s being done in what year if I don’t keep the record on the blog. 

That is one of the reasons I love blogging. It is a journal of all the things that were made in my sewing room. 

This year I realized I haven’t finished as many quilts, but life with a 2-year-old, 6 and 11-year boys plus a full-time job is a handful already.

Crafting for my mental health.

I am blessed to call my quilting time, my “me time”. The time when I get to just have a mental escape.

I have been anxious a lot this year with more responsibility at work, so lots of break were definitely needed.

I am so thankful that I can still take those breaks, and recharged through my sewing. 

Getting things done and making things with your hand is truly satisfying and can surely improve the overall being. I feel relaxed and can just have fun.

So here goes, here are all the projects I got done this year!

Although some of these projects are not fully completed yet, at least they have reached a big milestone like becoming a quilt flimsy (a quilt top that has not been quilted).

I see a lot of machine quilting in the coming year but I have also been enjoying piecing so much this year that I can’t say I won’t start many new projects this coming year. 

We’ll see. Anyway, here’s to 2022:

You can click each header to read more about the projects. They’re all linked to a post and many of these are linked to FREE patterns or tutorials. 

Heart Quilt Together Quilt – Flimsy

I still can’t believe I haven’t quilted this! This was done early in the year of 2022, and I had so much fun piecing it using strip piecing techniques. 

I guess I am contemplating adding the final border around it. I usually don’t buy large amounts of yardage so I didn’t have any that suits in my stash. The fabrics for the blocks were mixed and matched from my stash.

Hopefully, I can get this one done in January!

I can see cute little hearts and loops as the quilting design. Time to get doodling!

Ribbon Quilt

Here’s a fun quick baby quilt using a few fat quarters. I made this one for my friend’s niece. It was commissioned which I rarely do. Once a year is okay for me. This was free pattern. You can read more details about the quilt in this blog post HERE>

All the trimmings Quilt

I finished quilting this one this year. The quilt top was done last year but I got it all bound this year. There’s a tutorial on how to do clamshell quilting with a domestic machine using ruler HERE>

Using the leftover of the Boo Crew quilt and foundation paper pads, this was a fun quick project to match the quilt.

Home Sweet Home Cross stitch

Okay, this one is not quilting, but I know many who quilt and cross stitch too! I had just started cross-stitching again and found so much joy in it. Watching floss tube has been a lot of fun too.

This year, I only got two cross-stitch finish but I hadn’t posted about the other one. This was one of them. I’ll post the one soon. 

I can see more cross-stitch projects in the future. 

Jelly Roll Rug

For September Jelly Roll Day, I sewed up this Jelly Roll Rug! It can brighten up any room and was surely a fun project this year.

Layer Cake Spool Flimsy

This was a project that came together with very little planning. I wanted to make an easy quilt in between other projects that I had. Since this pattern was released, I knew I wanted to make it someday. 

I grabbed a layer cake that I had in stash for years and started it straight away. The pattern is free and you can find more details about this project in the blog post HERE>,

Simply Stars Half Yards Quilt Flimsy

My latest quilt flimsy made for the year 2022, I have sewn the border on and need to pick a backing for it. It was fun making all the different size blocks for this quilt.

Well, that is it!
