Here are my "best ofs."

This is an easy one. Far and above, the all-time most viewed post is "Susie's Magic Binding."
In the three-and-a-half years since the tutorial was posted in May of 2012, it has received nearly 650,000 views!
Not surprisingly, the most with the most comments is the Susie's Magic Binding video tutorial. Posted on February 2 of this year, it's also the second-most viewed post. It's on YouTube, here.

The most fun and lively discussions have been on "giveaway" posts. I loved the ideas followers had for using the Tonga Treats strips package given away on the 600 Followers post. The winner was Becky H., who planned a bargello quilt using the strips.

Another easy choice! My favorite all-time (not just 2015!) finish is the "Farmer's Wife" quilt. I used Marti Michell's templates for about half the quilt -- much easier than the templates in the book! I sent the quit to Idaho for a 50th anniversary gift to my brother and sister-in-law.

Since we've already celebrated Susie's Magic Binding, my second-favorite tutorial is another binding tute, Jean's Genius Binding. It's perfect when you don't want the flange of Susie's Magic Binding. Plus, my nails look great in these photos.
- Posts that are simply your favorites
The monthly UFO Parade posts are always my favs. It's so much fun to see what those participating in the UFO Challenge have made. But my favorite personal post is another tutorial, the one for the "Folded Corner Clipper." This is my favorite tool for making 45-degree angle cuts. So much more precise than drawing a line and sewing across it!
Linking up to the Meadow Mist Designs "Best of 2015" linky party.
I counted the quilts I've finished since returning home from Texas in October. Eight! I need to get My Little Sailor busy with the camera and write a "finishes" post!
Happy New Year, and happy quilting!
