I have to admit, I really enjoy doing my yearly recap post and seeing them all throughout blog land. It gives the sense of 'wow, I really did finish something
this year when it feels like you just never finish anything! It is also a wee bit dangerous as you see so many beautiful quilt and boy, don't I want to make a version of them all!
First - the look back at some finishes this year. Thank goodness for my yearly album of quilts on facebook. I think I need to make another one of these - It was fun to do a heart a day....and I have a charm pack of reds that would make a lovely little heart quilt.

Now the unfinished parts....
I did an umbrella a week this year and made this little top. I have plans to hand quilt it and think I found the backing fabric and have the batting. I hope to pin it over the next week so I can have it by my chair for a little hand quilting here and there.
I did a hand piece along this year. I made 2 of each block for a slightly bigger throw. This was so fun to make and I hear they might be having another one in 2020. I think it needs a border to finish it....
I also made this little 32x32 wall hanging top - my version of Happy Little Things.
I also started a sew along that will run for over a year - Ella Maria Deacon. I have decided to hand piece these blocks - 4 a month. It should be doable! I am using muslin as the background and a variety of blues to make my top. The original was red, green and yellow.
I also turned this pile of hand pieced hexagons into ..
this pile of blocks! They were hand applique down onto some black background squares. I see one to go. Maybe these will get sewn together into a top in 2020?
I'm sure there were other parts and pieces worked on but those were the major ones moved along.
Now to see what parts and pieces, blocks and tops will be worked on in 2020....
