something rosemade: Best of 2017

I'm happy to be joining the Best of 2017 Linky Party hosted by Cheryl Brickey of Meadow Mist Designs and  sharing my best five which I have to admit was hard but they do reflect the highlights of my most wonderful year which I became:
or :
Sadly I could not include the other highlight of 2017 which was a quilt dream finally coming true with, moi, taking a workshop with the Quilt Man himself, Kaffe Fassett, in October but did not write a post about my wonderful experience; probably because I still haven't fully recovered from it.  Once I finally finish the workshop quilt in 2018 I'll be sure to write a post then.

Now, I'm ready to sit back with a cup of tea and cookies to spend some time reading all of the great posts other bloggers are sharing on Cheryl's Best of 2017 Linky Party, (you can read them here).

Enjoy and thanks so much for visiting.

Wishing you a very Happy New Year filled with wonderful Quilt Joy!

  2. Flutterby is one of my favorites that you've made. I was just looking at it on pintrest yesterday thinking if it would work for this pile of fabrics I have out to use. It won't work for this pile, but I am keeping it on the list to make soon! Congratulations on a great year!

    1. Thanks Shannon! It's been great getting to know you and seeing your wonderful quilts. FYI, I used the Accuquilt Half Rectangle Triangle die and changed Jen Kingwell's measurements so I can use my dies. Please let me know if you have any questions. Have a Happy New Year!

  4. Knowing firsthand the utter joy of a grandchild, Micah gets my vote for number one of the year! When you look back, it is very rewarding to see all the accomplishments and joy that that 2017 brought you, right? Here’s to more wonder in 2018! And I cannot WAIT to read and drool over the Kaffe post.

    1. Thanks Sandra! It's been a very wonderful year and you're right Micah is my number 1. Hopefully I can get the Kaffe quilt done so I can finally write the post. I'll always have the video of him giving a critique of my quilt. Thanks for being such a good blog buddy and someday we're going to have to get together and share some more laughs. Happy New Year!

  5. Rose you had a great year! I can hardly wait to hear about your class and see that quilt. I bought fabric for your jelly roll charm quilt, but haven't got it going yet. It will be done in 2018! Happy New Year to you and your family!

  14. What a wonderful year you have had. I love your Flutterby quilt, it's on my wishlist, yours is a wonderful example. I'm not surprised that Micah's quilt is your top favourite, she is such a cutie and we fall so deeply in love with our grandchildren. You have had a most wonderful year Rose and so well deserved, may it continue into 2018, I look forward to seeing what you do next.

  16. Well that was fun! I just looked up all of your links above and of course then I had to go down the rabbit hole and read all of your posts. I know I've seen bits and pieces before, but not the whole package. Congrats on being a first-time Gramma. I was reading one of your posts and laughing to my husband about never referring to "the kids" but the grandkids "and their parents." We got our priorities straight for sure. Have a beautiful new year! And stay warm! (Quilts will help.)

    1. Thanks Janine Marie for visiting the rabbit hole; there's a few squirrels in there. I remember our past conversations about whatever our grandchildren want comes before any project-they're more than a DREAMi aren't they. Yeah, my son and his wife sort of have a new referral designation now. I hope you have a beautiful year and stay warm too! I like looking at snow just not being in snow.
