When I wrote my last post, I was sure that’ll be the last post for the year. However, I started seeing posts from other blogs I follow listing their top 5 posts of 2016 as part of the Best of 2016 linky party hosted by Cheryl of @meadowmistdesigns I figured I might as well join the party and review year 2016.
Earlier in the year, I wrote a post titled No resolutions only commitments and in that post I mentioned that reflecting back on 2015 so many goals were left under achieved and resolutions unfulfilled but I have another chance to make things right in 2016. To that effect, I decided I wasn’t making any list of resolutions but I instead made these commitments:Read more: In retrospect…end of year review
Wow!!! I am truly beyond excited, you all are far too kind for visiting and leaving such amazing comments.
Like I said, it was my first day back at work and I was looking forward to a very stressful day but none of that mattered because every time I have a minute to check my mail or follow up the progress of my blog hop post, there’s a wonderful comment that puts a huge smile on my face. I couldn’t contain myself…it still feels so unreal that I took a chance that paid off way beyond my expectation. My stats for yesterday blew me away for sure!
When I created the tutorial page on the blog, it was just a motivation to one day work up a tutorial but I never thought I’ll have one to share so soon and definitely nothing as successful as my Cloud9 Blog Hop Posthas been so far. I am not very good at putting myself out there and I seem to be doing a lot of that lately thanks to the 2016 New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop and subsequently the just concluded Cloud9 New Block Blog Hop. I am so grateful for the amazing quilting friends I’ve made since all these started and most importantly, I am grateful for the level of growth I am experiencing in my Quilting even if I do say so myself 🙂 . It certainly doesn’t feel like I am that lonely quilter in my little part of the world anymore and that feels great.
If you miss out on all the fun posts, don’t worry, here is the permanent landing page: http://quiltingjetgirl.com/2016-cloud9-new-block-blog-hop/ for all the Blog Hop posts. I certainly will be referring back for some fun blocks to make and there are lots! In the meantime, I will catch up on all the posts from yesterday I am yet to visit.
Thanks again for stopping by everyone. Your visits and comments are the reason behind all the excitements so thanks for keeping them coming.
P.S: I have been responding to comments via this blog apparently there’s a way to reply via email which I have now discovered, so henceforth I shall make effort to respond to your comments via email and when I can’t, I’ll continue to respond over here.

Welcome everyone, Long post alert but it’s my first tutorial y’all! My name is Sola in case you are visiting for the first time via the blog hop, I do hope you enjoy looking around and find a reason to stick around! In other news, sadly (yes I did say sadly )I’m back to work today after my long holiday . It feels like yesterday when I was tracking my fabric delivery hoping it gets to me before I left for my holiday but guess what, they delivered it a day after! Anyway, 3 weeks later after lots of hiccup and dragging my husband out of bed at 6 a.m., I finally got the fabric. Wait…what fabric am I on about?
Well I’ve had exciting things happening since I took part in the 2016 New Quilt Blogger Blog Hop and somehow I took a leap of faith and signed up for this blog hop (the reason why you are here). The Blog Hop is sponsored by Cloud 9, and hosted by (Thank you Ladies! 🙂 )Yvonne of Quilting Jetgirl, Cheryl of Meadow Mist Designsand Stephanie of Late Night Quilter! I believe there are almost 70 bloggers creating new blocks using the fat quarter bundle of the oh so soft and oh so pretty organic Cirrus Solids generously provided by Cloud9 fabrics and the palette we got is called “Berry Harvest” how befitting and clever. Before I forget, Don’t miss out on the (3) separate fat bundle giveaways, visit the hosts for entry details! Another cool fact, all the new blocks are going to be pieced together to make a charity Quilt.Read more: Welcome to Cloud 9 New Blog Hop
I am really glad you are here, thanks for stopping by like I always end my blog posts! On one of those random days I actually decided to scroll through my WordPress reader, something interesting caught my eye. Someone had posted about a New Quilt Bloggers group and I wanted to find out more. I definitely found out more and while I didn’t think I was even qualified to participate based on the stated requirements, I filled the form anyways and I have to say that’s probably one of the best decisions I’ve made all year! Fast forward couple of months later and here we are, it’s finally my turn on the Blog hop but first, a big thank you to the hosts of this 2016 New Quilt Bloggers advisory group Stephanie @Late Night Quilter (I belong to Stephanie’s hive and we are the Hive Sewciety) Yvonne @Quilting Jetgirl, and Cheryl @Meadowmist Designs. Please stop over at their blogs to find out more about other new Quilt bloggers and for your chance to enter amazing giveaways by the sponsors.Read more: Thanks for stopping by…I’ve been expecting you!
