My 2018 Best Sellers!

This will be the first time I get to include my Best Sellers list on my blog...though I've featured them each year in January, on my social media accounts.
Another reason to love having this place to share and keep these details about Victoriana Quilt Designs!

[Clicking the pictures will take you directly to that pattern page.]


My Patchwork Sewing Machine cover is back on the list...
More pictures & details about this 'sew pretty' pattern available here.


Next comes the Scrap Happy Baby Ribbons pattern, which continues to be very popular, because it's pretty and my instructions make it 'sew' easy, with everything figured out!
Details here.


Down to the third highest seller - Scraps Galore
You cut the squares and my easy plan with directions take care of everything else!


Scraps Galore 2 is my newest scrap quilt design...and it made it to the number two spot last year!


And the #1 2018 Best Seller was...
The Stuffies Family - With Gerome the Giraffe ahead of the rest.
You can see them all here.


Emmett the Monkey is coming soon! 

Anyone interested in a virtual Stuffies Stitch Along later this year? 
I have two 'layouts' for baby quilts now.
I'm thinking of combining a bunch of them into an even larger 'junior' quilt.
Would you be interested in those directions?

Let me know, so I can plan...

Happy 2019 Stitching!

My Off Grid Adventure Letters


Two people, in the last few days, have asked me about My Off Grid Adventure Letters...The Adventure Continues posts, and why it's only available to my Members.
I did move it to that section a few years ago because I now live alone, and it became unsafe for me to continue posting about my life – open for anyone to read.
If you'd like to read my posts about living off-grid in a forest, you can buy a Membership (which is now non-expiring) as a way to be able to read what I post, even if you don't use the quilt pattern part.
I did think of removing it completely, but after much encouragement I decided to give my sweet Members access – as they are the ones who best support my living here. 

January Offer: If you join this month I’ll gift you the pdf ‘book’ I’ve made up of the first 3 years I lived here - [The original 'My Off Grid Adventure Letters'], which I have for sale on my site.
[Please send me a note after you join that you'd like a copy.]

Thanks for your interest!

If you've not yet treated yourself to my non-expiring quilt pattern Membership - today would be a good day!

Best of 2018


Cheryl from Meadow Mist Designs - you might remember her from my 2018 Online Quilters Meet & Greet - is holding her fourth Best of Party.
The only rule is to share my favourite 5 posts from 2018.

I tend to be most interested in my latest quilt designs.
My Blue & White tile quilt pattern series will begin in January, 2019.


Here's a sneak peak at the first block, which is ready to layer and add the quilting using embroidery floss.
I'm very excited about this wall hanging quilt!
[I'll also be including larger size blocks, for those who prefer to make it a bed quilt.]

But if I had to pick...






If you haven't read those before, I hope you enjoy reading them now!

And for more great Best of posts from other bloggers who quilt, visit the Linky Party list here.


Happy Stitching in 2019!

Progress of a Different Kind

Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy!!!!
It's a mostly sunny afternoon here, and all the batteries are being charged back up.

The early, extra cold weather has made it necessary to re-stock my mudroom with wood, already!
I am, of course, enjoying seeing the animal tracks in the snow.
Of the larger animals, I've spotted coyote, bobcat (not surprised with the many, many rabbit tracks around), grouse & deer - always fun to see evidence that they are around!

I've been making good progress...of a different kind, too.


Hand stitching, of course.
This is the back view of my Stained Glass Strings quilt.

And I've not even needed to get out the deck of cards to entertain myself.
All of these need no electricity, and allow me good creative thinking time!

That's lead me to design, in my head, a whole bunch of interesting quilts.
I did make a sketch and note of each, of course.
There are sew, sew many new quilt designs I hope to add to my site, as I'm able.
Stay tuned, as the adventure continues! :)

Happy Stitching!
