It’s a New Year…Looking Back on 2019

Happy New Year.  Looking back on 2019, I would say I was definitely busier than a bee!  During 2018, I doubled my quilt production but had to slow down in 2019 since I injured my neck and shoulder doing too many quilts.

The two most exciting things to happen for me this year was having my Prince Cherrywood Challenge Quilt travel around the US, and will end up near Prince’s hometown in April, and my Rose quilt won a second place at our guild’s quilt show this year.

Here are all of the 52 client quilts completed in 2019. Eight of them were vintage quilt tops that I finished for Christmas gifts for a friend.  Oh and almost forgot the new memory bears pattern I will be adding to my collection on my website.  I had to do 8 of them!


Personal Projects for 2019:


I also created a two store sample quilts and a Stonehenge block kit for our local shop to sell.

This year I taught two t-shirt quilt classes at Huntsville Sew Creative and one Hexagon Quilt class at a local church.

I attended two quilt shows: Spring Paducah and worked and attended the International Quilt Festival in Houston.  We had to make two garments for it.  Here are some pics of them and the Education team!


I set some goals this year with my quilting.  I have a list of 30 quilts I’d love to complete in my lifetime and this year I plan on doing the following:

  • Cherrywood Challenge Princess Diana
  • Applique of Costa Rica Mosaic Tile – this will probably not get done in a year….it’s pretty intense and I’d love to be able to show it someday.
  • Finish my Flower Applique Karen Kay Buckley class
  • Start Autumn Love by Lori Holt
  • Finish my Sizzle BOM
  • Create an Alaskan Quilt – Cynthia England kit
  • Finish a Poinsettia Quilt – Cynthia England kit

I’ve got other UFOs that I might get done but the ones above are my top priority. What’s your plans?  I’d love to hear them!

Happy Quilting ya’ll!

Staying busy as a bee,

Sue Bee
