2021 Roundup

Whew, what a year. What a couple of years! I thought it would be fun to do a quick roundup of the past year.


The Zoe Quilt in Starry - Kitchen Table Quilting


Recently I updated my "Finished Quilts" catalogs for each year that I have been blogging - you can view them all by clicking the links below.

I also updated the Tutorials (divided up into categories: quilts, giant blocks, and techniques and tips) and Quiltalong posts so that you can view everything in one place.  


The Taylor Quilt Pattern - Tula Pink Version


My next goal is to make a page for each quilt pattern with links to each version of the pattern that I have made - that way you can get pattern inspiration all in one place. That will have to wait for early 2022!


Here are my stats for this year:


The Beatrice Quilt in Darlings - Kitchen Table Quilting

Finished Quilts - 51! 

I will have to look back, but I think this is my most ever. A couple were baby quilts, and I actually have one or two more that are finished but I can't share yet so I will count those for next year.


The Virginia Quilt Pattern - Kitchen Table Quilting

Patterns Released - 10

Naomi, Sylvie, Taylor, Penny, Virginia, Zoe, Abigail, Beatrice, Carly, and Diana


The Julia Quilt - Kitchen Table Quilting

Patterns revised - Julia and Tessa

Both of these patterns received new graphics and additional sizing. There will be more of this in 2022!


A Pink and Purple Violet Quilt - Kitchen Table Quilting

Quiltalongs - 2

We quilted along to both the Violet and Penny Quilts this year.


A Valued Scrap Quilt - Kitchen Table Quilting

Tips and Tutorials - Lots!

In addition to one new PDF download (the Valued Scrap Quilt) I have shared lots of tutorials in my reels and stories on Instagram.


The Carly Quilt - Kitchen Table Quilting

Most popular pattern of the year - a very close call between Penny and Carly

I have a lot of plans for 2022, although the past couple of plans have taught me that making plans can sometimes be pointless. Here are some things I would like to accomplish in the new year:

  • Two new scrap tutorial PDFs in the shop
  • Ten new patterns
  • Revising at least 2 existing patterns - adding additional sizing and updating graphics and the cover quilt
  • Make more reels, but do it in a way that works for me. I know that not all of you are on Instagram, but it makes the most sense for me as a business to increase the time I spend developing content for the platform. I want to participate more, but expect to see more things like tutorials and 0 reels of me dancing. I do plan on adding more of these videos to Youtube so that I can link to them from the blog as well as having them on Instagram.
  • Stop working in the evenings. This is a hard one for me, but now that all of my kids are in school, I would really like to make this happen!
  • Increase accessibility around the blog and shop - I want you to be able to easily find what you are looking for.

I think that is about it. Do you have any quilting-related goals for the year?

  1. Well Erica, I can also pretty much guarantee you won't fine reels of me dancing on my IG either! I am also setting a goal of increasing my consistency of posting to IG and FB for my longarm quilting business, at the moment I feel like once a week will be an achievable goal but will still be a huge improvement for me. My biggest quilting-related goal is to provide full-time income with my business this year! The other goal is to get to bed by 9:30pm, so I am starting that one tomor... tonight LOL!

  2. I just wanted to say I really love the mock ups you are doing. And the new patterns this last year have been great. Can’t wait for the new stuff in 2022!

    My New Years resolution is to finish some quilt tops. The quilt top itself is done but sandwiching, quilt, and bind type of finishing. Yah 2022!
