It's been a year of colorful minis. I've participated in quite a few swaps. At the moment I'm only signed up for one in 2016. I'm going to try to resist joining a bunch in favor of some larger finishes in the coming months. As a quick review of 2015, I'm sharing my five most visited 2015 blog posts here.

Linking up to the Best of 2015 Linky Party.
Your Sew My Stash Mini Quilt Swap just got another view. Somehow I missed it. I so appreciate the way you combine colors and fabrics. I've never seen that fabric before that has the squares within squares. It reminds me of millefiori squares I've used in mosaic projects. Great recap of your minis.
Thank you, Mary. I play with my fabric a lot. Making piles of stuff I like together. Sometimes it becomes a project (like my swoon, which produced the sew my stash HSTs). Sometimes it doesn't. :-)
I love all your favourite finishes Sarah, but in particular I love your Tula letters mini and the texty dresden. YES, they are my favourites.
Thank you, Helen. They are two of my favorites, too. The text dresden is mine. I made myself a copy when I was making the swap mini to send away. I'd love to make a whole quilt of envelope blocks. They are 6" finished, I think... so that's a lot of blocks necessary for any size. We'll see. ;-)

Your top 5 posts are definitely very colorful and fun! I hope you have a wonderful 2016. :)
Thank you, Yvonne. :-)
What rainbow goodness! I love all of these finishes, thanks for linking up!
Thank you, Cheryl. Thanks for hosting!
Beautiful quilts! Love the Dresden especially. Happy new year!
Thank you, Mari. I'm really happy that I went for it with a Dresden project. I'd never made one and they were faster and easier than I thought they'd be.
Wonderful finishes! I love the pouch and the rainbow dresden! Great work! :)
Thank you, Laurel. I sure love rainbow. I finally snagged more of that fabric I used for the pouch and look forward to using it.
Always such lovely fabric selections and quilting! Can't wait to see what you create in 2016!!
Aww... thank you, Mel. Working on finishing that Midnight Mystery quilt, first and foremost. Was initially thinking about an all over quilting pattern, but wonder if I should try for something more detailed. Alas, I'm ahead of myself, as there's still quite a bit of piecing necessary to finish the quilt top first. :-)
I've been mulling over some quilting designs (especially since I used all solids that will make the quilting really pop!!). Can't wait for the January instructions to see the final quilt top assembly instructions!!
I can't wait to see what you come up with for the quilting!
