It is always fun to look back at a year and see what has been my best blog posts of 2018 that everyone is interested in. It wasn’t a surprise to see that the quilt tutorials have been the most popular.
Best of 2018
This year I have created a Resource Library which has all kinds of free tutorials that can be downloaded just by signing up for my newsletter.
I took a class called List Love which has really taught me a lot about the importance of growing an email list and also using ConvertKit.
My mailing list has grown to almost 3,000 people since August when I started it.
With the recent changes that Craftsy has made, I am glad I have a pattern shop on my website and a great group of people who enjoy my website. I used to have 40 patterns on Craftsy and now have 4. I am hopeful that the changes coming in 2019 with Craftsy will be good.
I was also using WooCommerce on my website to sell my digital quilt patterns but I have now switched to a store on Shopify.
Truthfully my Christmas tutorials have been the most popular but I have been sharing them so much lately that I thought I would list a few of the other popular posts.
This sweet little table runner tutorial has been very popular this year. I think having a downloadable PDF has been very popular also. If you have some charm packs in your stash, you’ll have fun making this table runner. This is a simple 9 patch that uses little 1½” squares that you can pull out of your stash or use a charm pack like I did.
How about a precious little baby quilt made with batik hearts! I shared this tutorial as part of the Put a Little Love in your Quilt blog hop at Just Le Me Quilt. It doesn’t matter what time of year you make this quilt but if you are looking for a quilt project around Valentine’s Day, then this is a good one for you. Use some fat quarters of batik to make this!
This is a quilted wall hanging that is fun to create and perfect for Valentine’s Day or any time of the year.
I have been going back and updating some old tutorials like this one which continues to make it a popular post.

Thank you Cheryl from Meadow Mist Designs for organizing the Best of 2018 Linky Party!
I hope you have enjoyed my Best Blog Posts of 2018! If you make any quilt project using these or any of my patterns, I would love to see them!
