My Favorites of 2014

Janus-VaticanInstead of revisiting my posts that attracted the most readers in 2014 I want to feature posts which didn’t get a lot of love. You may think this is perverse, but I enjoyed writing them, and I like to think they represent the territory this blog covers.

Old Quilts Are Perennials features a very local quilt show with wonderful old quilts.

Not for the squeamish, Bits and Bobs offers an insider’s tour of the bric a brac jumbled in my mind.

In Modern Curves I review Angela Pingel’s A Quilter’s Mixology, which I consider one of the better quilt books of 2014.

What Happens After You Find Your Voice? explores my efforts to develop a unique style.

I do yet more navel gazing in The Difference Between Art and Craft and ponder where my work fits.

Since I love eye candy, I always enjoy revisiting A Must-See in San Diego, and the Nickols quilt collection.

With this post I’ll put 2014 in the done pile. I’ll tackle my plans for 2015 later this month.

  1. Thanks for this post. I discovered your blog recently so I had fun reading these older posts. The Mingei collection – WOW, thanks for including the link to that collection!!

    • I gather that not all the Nickols collection at the Mingei is on display at any one time, so the online archive is a wonderful resource. I do love the idiosyncrasies of the quilts.

  2. You know me, I love navel gazing. Off to re-read a couple!

  3. I, too, sometimes go back and re-blog older posts that I don’t feel got enough attention so I definitely understand the impulse behind this post! And I’m glad you did make this list–it got me to go back and read what I hadn’t and that gave me new things to ponder! Thanks!

I Love to Hear From You
