Quilt Finishes for 2022

I sat down to write this post thinking that I really didn’t finish a lot of quilts this year.  Then as I started writing the post and pulling pictures, I was actually quite impressed with myself.  I just know that in the last few months, I’ve not gotten a lot of sewing done.  Between my daughter Kalissa needing extra help with her kids since her son Anders has been born, then her ear, then Gannon being sick, then the trim work and reorganization of my sewing room, and fostering pups, it’s been a long time since anything has happened in the sewing room…apparently at the beginning of the year, I was on fire.

Here are the quilts I have to share with you…

I started out in January with a finish of my Bitcoin quilt.  You can read all about it HERE.  This put a dent in a big bucket of 1 1/2″ strips that my daughter Kelli gifted to me.  I love this quilt!!

This is a Bonnie Hunter pattern that can be found on her blog.

Next, I finished Remainders.  You can read the whole post about it HERE.

The pattern came from the book No Scrap Left Behind by Amanda Jean Nyberg ( Find the book HERE).

The premise of the quilt is to use bonus triangles.  It was fun to make!

Our Tulip Fields quilt was featured in… American Patchwork and Quilting.  You can read about it HERE.

This one was a little out of the box for me.  Most of my quilts are scrappy and don’t use all of that white.

I made this little topper using a free pattern from Temecula Quilt Company.

I used bonus triangles so it was a quick project.  You can read more about it HERE.

I also made this topper.  Apologies for teaming it with 4th of July goodies.  I finished it in July.  You can read about it HERE.  There is a free pattern for the flying geese table topped that you can find by following the link.

I was into using up my scraps.  My Two-Step quilt really put a dent in my 2 1/2″ bucket.  I’d happily make this quilt again.  If you are a charity quilt maker and looking for a way to use up scraps, this is a great option.  You can read more about it HERE.

This became my grandaughter Georgie’s big girl bed quilt.

I made this quilt from leftover pieces a blog reader sent to me from her Bonnie Hunter Frolic quilt.  I had to make a lot more pieces to go with it to get the quilt big enough but the start was from a blog reader.  You can read about it HERE.

I was on a roll finishing up UFOs.  These Baby gray quilts were part of the push.  I blog reader sent me a bunch of gray bonus triangles and I created these quilts with them. You can read about them HERE.

Our quilt A Perfect Match was featured in Quilts and More magazine.  You can read about it HERE.   You can even more about it HERE.  My friend Carla of Longarm Quilting Inspirations did the longarming on this one…just amazing.  She did the work on the tulip quilt too.

Our from Extra to Extraordinary was featured in Quilter’s World.  You can read all about it HERE.  This quilt was also made with leftovers….mine and some sent to me by blog readers.  I love this quilt!

I finished my Scrap Vortex quilt.  You can read about it HERE.  This idea came from Crazy Mom Quilts.  It was another UFO.

I finished my chemo brain quilt and sent it to Ukraine.  You can read about it HERE.  Yes it looked like one of the quilts above but it’s different.

Our Inspired by the Past quilt made the cover of American Patchwork and Quilting.  You can read about it HERE.  It was in the February 2022 issue.  This quilt I will always keep.  I did a tutorial on how to make the blocks HERE.  This one was technically sewn in 2021.

I had leftover blocks so I made an alternate layout.  This is the quilt that came from that.  You can read about it HERE.

I just love that these were inspired by an antique quilt I found at a Vintage Store.

I made this one the year before but it was published in 2022 in Quilts and More.  You can read about it HERE.

I finished my Double Wedding Ring quilt.  June 2018 edition of American Patchwork and Quilting

I jumped in and said sure.  You can find the installments of the quilt along HERE.  There are 13 seperate blog posts that have instructions.

I finished the American Quilters Stitch Along.  You can read about it HERE. 

This one was fun to make.  I don’t always do sew alongs but often wish I did them more often especially when the result is a great quilt like this!

I finished my Red Diamond Crumb Quilt.  You can read about it HERE.  I have a Youtube video that shows how I made the blocks.  You can find that HERE.

Here is Garlic Knots.  You can read about it HERE.  This was a long term UFO.  It wasn’t the easiest getting this laid out as I don’t have a design wall.  It’s made from all batiks.  I love this one too!

I made a quilt for my grandson Gannon for preschool.  You can read about it HERE.  It’s not fancy…just a panel quilt with his name.

I made a quilt for my granddaughter Georgia for preschool.  You can see the whole quilt and you can read about it HERE.

I made quilts for my granddaughters Lucy and Lilly.  You can read about them HERE.

I finished Miss Rosie’s Quilt Company’s True Blue quilt.  This started when a blog reader sent me about 20 blocks.  You can read about it HERE.  The lighting in the picture makes it almost look black and white but it’s blue and white.

I made two baby quilts…these are in my stacks waiting for a baby to be born.  You can read about them HERE.

My friend Connie was so sweet and brought a few quilt tops for me to use as charity quilt projects.  I finished this one and donated it.  THANKS Connie!!  You can read about it HERE.

I’m looking forward to finishing a couple of others Connie sent.

I finished this charity quilt for my daughter Kayla.  It’s a Country Threads Bulls Eye quilt.  You can read the details HERE.

This is a charity quilt finish.  A blog reader sent the center of the top to me.  I added the border and finished it.  You can read about it HERE.

I finished another small tractor quilt for Kayla.  I never showed that.

…and that is a wrap.  That’s my quilts from 2022.  I ended up making quite a few.  I never quite know how to count the quilts that I made one year but were published in the next year.  I’ve put them in both years to save on the quilt confusion but have tried to note it for you.

I have a stack of UFOs that I’m slowed working through.  I have two quilts here that are machine quilted but need binding so hopefully you’ll see some finished quilts for 2023 soon.

  1. Count me as very impressed.
    Also reminded me that I have a few, maybe 7, tops done that need to be made into quilts that can actually be used. What stops me is that it is involved to set up my area to be used for FMQ. Once it is set up I feel I should do them all.
    And I don’t want to do 7 queen size quilts (yeah, I’m whining) at the same time. One of the benefits I get from your blog is, it gets me to think of different ways of doing things. The big involved thing takes maybe 15-20 minutes so why can’t I just do 3 or 4. Later I can take the not really big amount of time and set up again and do the remainder. Well, for one thing later I will most likely have 2 or 3 more tops done! Maybe once every 4-6 weeks I can designate as FMQ time.
    Thought about deleting most of this long post but wanted you to know how you influence at least this reader/fan. BTW, after your post on cleaning your sewing room, had every intention of sewing for a bit and ended up picking up. Thank you.

    1. Thanks for writing Polly. I love know I’m not the only one who struggles through making myself do some FMQ. It’s not my favorite!!

  2. Oh wow I was here with you all year and remember them all, didn’t realize it was that many!! I can’t seem to get anything quiltwise done, although I have the supplies, because of cross stitching!

  3. These pictures impress me! I actually have no clue how many quilts I made and I think this year I’ll start recording them in a journal. All your quilts are absolutely beautiful!

  4. WOW!!! That’s a LOT of quilts and seems that most of them are large quilts made from LOTS of little pieces!! I started a vortex when it was the thing but didn’t get anywhere near finishing a quilt. And love all the quilts for your grands. Now add in all your stitching and I have no clue where you found all that time along with everything else.

    I really benefit from making smaller projects as it gives me a sense of accomplishment. I would love to do a sew along on the Independence Day table topper and would also love to do the flying geese one as well! Happy New Year. This winter with all the snows, it is a good chance to get things done. No unnecessary trips to town, better to stay home and sew!

    Looking thru your quilts you completed for 2022, I am thinking, ‘WOW’! You got allot done, Super Woman status!

  7. You are AMAZING Jo Kramer!!
    Love your posts, shares and all of your active, messy and fun life! Happy 2023 New Year!!

  8. LOL it took me 8 (yes, eight) years to complete one quilt. Granted it had 9 blocks that had detailed machine applique that took me forever…maybe 5 years. I am so happy that it is done. Everyone loves it.

  9. Love everyone of those quilts!! All so beautiful. It was fun to see them all again. In spite of all you went through and did during 2022, you managed to finish many, many quilts!

  10. I am in awe of your accomplishments and the beauty you create. And then you share them with others. Your example of devotion to a larger cause, whether through puppies or sewing or grandmothering, is so admirable. I am loving reading your blogs.

  11. I think all your quilts are beautiful but I’m drawn to the bitcoin and scrappy quilts. I don’t quilt (wish I did) but if I did, I’d make all scrappy quilts! Also love reading anything about dogs! You are very talented in many areas Jo !
