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!
