Congratulations! I like all of your tutorials-you definitely have the knack-but my favorite is the perfect binding tute. There are lots of instructions online but yours is the one I return to. The best bit? Advising the user to trim that 45-degree angle - "Do it now." !!

Corrie said...

I love just seeing all the wonderful things you create and love tutorials.
http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2010/05/giveaways-going-on-in-blogland-wk19.html
is not necessarily my favorite post but one of my favorite things about your blog is the weekly list of giveaways. It's such a great idea (even if I don't ever win any of them!)Congrats on your blogversary!

Vicki W said...

I read your blog because it is so well written in all aspects! I love your tutorials for their completeness and great photos. I am just waiting for someone I know to have a baby girl so I can make the dolly dress quilt. Happy Blogiversary!

Gale's Goodies said...

I love reading your blog to see what you are sewing now, but one of my favorite posts was the one about organizing your fabrics. I had to order some of the bolt thingies from Polar Notions and start putting my stash in order.

Congratulations on a great year!

Katie Bishop said...

Well I just love every post. But I think, for me the one on quilt labelings the spoonflower way was the best. And so cool.

This is one of my favorite blogs, which I found through Moda's Bake Shop, and I love following you!

Lynne said...

I like your giveaway posts, I like seeing what you're making but most of all I like Sunday stash and I picked this one:sunday stash..wk18... i found a new LQS! because it has lots of my favourites in it as well as some hexagons. I like things to look pretty is what I'm saying. Congratulations on your blogaversary. I'd love to make that fab quilt. And here's some love XXX

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

Congratulations Julie on your one year blogiversary! I love your blog. You are creative. You are fun. I love the pictures you share about quilting and your family. I think my favorite posts were the ones about quilt market. But everyday is a fun day with "jaybird quilts"!

Robin (rsislandcrafts) said...

Congratulations! It has been a wonderful year full of fun in information.

I loved when you went on a family hunt to find out who made the wedding ring quilt you have.

Alicia said...

I like the post you did on labeling. (And I love your labels). Congrats!

~ Sara ~ said...

HAPPY blogaversary!! For my part I would have to say the "bee" posts... they make me think and expand on what can be...

Bailey said...

I think I'd have to say this was my favorite: http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2010/01/perfect-binding-tutorial.html

I only recently found your blog when searching for a binding tutorial....so glad to have found it, you have some wonderful posts!

Congrats on 1 year!

Marisa said...

Congrats on your 1st year! I actually just discovered your blog about a week ago, so I have so say my favorite in the last week was your baby circle around in Nicey Jane. I just love it! Thanks for the giveaway!

Susan said...

Well, I hesitate to mention this post what with the big South Beach Diet ad up there on the page, but this post, about the chocolate covered pretzels is my current favorite, although I like all your tutes, Julie.

http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2010/03/loaded-chocolate-covered-pretzels.html

I mean- just look at that! My mouth is watering as we speak.

Thanks for a great giveaway and congrats on your blogaversary!

Petit Debutant said...

I'm a recent follower of your blog. I don't even remember how I stumbled upon you but we have similar taste and I just love seeing pictures of your quilts and quilts in progress. I really like the tutorials from the hexagon quilt along and I love that you share the info of giveaways going on!

Darkangel said...

I think I cant choose only one link, I really love all your quilts and your great tutorials, Im reading every post and like to come back.

but congratulations for your bloganniversary

Hugs Cornelia

Bietje said...

Gosh, I only can pick 1 blog? That's not enough. I enjoy mostly all the blogs about quilting, the struggling with some patterns, the solutions you come up with, the trics, the patterns, the fabric, the Affo's, the WIP's, ...
Well you name it. Thanks to your (and other) blogs I got the guts to try quilting. AND I LOVE IT.
Thank you for that

Caryn said...

Today for you...tomorrow for me!...fellow Rent fanatic here! I just recently found your blog and my favorites are the hex tutorials b/c I have just become addicted to hexagons! Happy Blogaversary!

Debbie said...

Oh gosh, how do I pick just one...I swear, you're the only blog that I follow faithfully, and because you make it so easy to find the best blogs out there :)

If I had to pick one, it would be these ones (is plural okay?) LOL
http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/search/label/about%20me

I love that your favorite color is orange, and RENT well my sister and her hubby sing the songs all the time, I couldn't help liking it. And to just read about your journey is inspiriing!

Needled Mom said...

Happy blogiversary!!! How can we choose only one favorite? I have been inspired by all of your wonderful projects. The one that I am really enjoying is the hexagon quilt along. Keep up the great work.

Jennifer said...

http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2010/02/dolly-dresses-tutorial.html

I loved this dolly dress tutorial - it made me think of when my infant daughter will be old enough to play with dolls and little doll clothes!

Thanks for all your posts - this is one of my favorite blogs!

ritad said...

Just one year? I'm a recent follower and thought you had been around a lot longer. All you post are so filled with great info, my favorite tute would have to be the mitered border tutorial. It gave me the confidence to give miters another try. Thanks for all your great inspirations, and congradulations on your one year anniversary.

Jewel said...

THis is my favorite post http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2010/01/i-miss-this-kid.html but it is not the reason I come here. I come here because I love seeing a young lady like yourself that is so in love with quilting. You have a great joy that is contagious. Take care.

tong said...

Happy Bloggaversary! I love your Sunday Stash posts, they make me feel so much better knowing that I'm not alone in my fabric hoarding obsession. And this Sunday Stash post is my favourite, http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2010/04/sunday-stashwk17-blame-it-on-guild-and.html

The littls gasp, running towards the bolt of Full Moon Forest, I totally understand!

Peaceful Piecer said...

My favorite recent post was the square city post. I had the magazine and plenty of fabric so it fit it to my new use what's on hand plan. I've been pulling fabrics and plan to start on the quilt this weekend.Enjoy your blog very much. square city

Jodie said...

I am going to say happy anniversary, because that is so awesome. Not going to enter your wonderful giveaway, because I already purchased your great kit! Thanks for blogging for all of us!

RWL said...

congrats!!! your blog has - and continues to be - such a source of inspiration for me as i've started to quilt this past year. my favorite post (it was hard to choose) was this one: http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2010/03/breakdown-or-breakthrough.html as it's something i have to remind myself to do. keep up the awesome work - it's so nice to "know" another young, creative quilter (i'm 27 too!). :)

Beth said...

Does it count if I pick the post where you featured my idiocy with the hexagons?!?!

Congrats!

epban said...

Congrats on one year! I like to start my day with your blog and am loving the circle around quilt as well as your hexagon quilt along. Also enjoy your giveaway listing each week...Here's to a wonderful Year#2!

moira said...

I'm fairly new to quitling so am inspired by your blog to keep going. Loving your tutes (does that sound rude?)!

Marcia said...

Please enter me into your "oya giveaway". There are too many of your posts that I like for me to comment on one as a favorite. So, will list one that is representative about what I *heart* about your blog. Humor (the pedicure) and enthusiasm; stash report with good photos of fabric; how tos and tuts (really enjoy the hexagon posts recently); your family celebrations; and of course the weekly giveaway post. You actually quilt which is very important to me -- I read blogs for quilting. And, your photos load far faster than most blogs. http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/search?updated-max=2010-05-07T09%3A15%3A00-04%3A00&max-results=5
sunday stash..wk18... i found a new LQS!

Val Miller said...

Hi there !! Happy blogiversary! I do enjoy coming to vist you and reading all your great tutorials, but must say I get great joy from your stash reports!! In a sick, I am a fabric junkie way, I get great pleasure in seeing other people buy as much as me :) I love that you bought tula pink hushabye to hide away until the day you maybe have a child, I love that you find full moon forest even when you aren't looking for it and buy it all, and I love that you tell us all about it !! Here's to another great year!!

crickets said...

Congratulations! In one year you've grown so much! Love your blog, love the inspiration and motivation. Hard to pick just one, but I really REALLY love your lifecycles quilt tute here http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/search/label/tutorial.

Even tho' my kids both have baby quilts (they're 6 and 2) I am making them each one of your quilts complete with messages from family and friends.

Thanks for what you so - it's wonderful!

Sew It UP! said...

I first came across your tutorial, and blog, on Moda Bake shop and since then I have been a follower and blog stocker .

http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2009/11/essence-turnover-topper.html

Congratulations and thank you for having such an amazing blog! It's like talking to a friend face to face.

Barb in Mi said...

First of all: congratulations to your blog anniversary! I am always amazed at your creativity and how you manage to get so much done - not only sewing, but also blog postings! As for (one of) my favorite postings on your blog:
http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2010/03/square-city-in-mccalls-quilting.html

This is the posting of your McQ magazine article & pattern with your mom in it. I can't really explain why though. I just really, really liked the approach of you teaching & including your mom in your favorite past time! And in a magazine article. How much better can it get?
Best wishes for the next year fo blogging! And thanks for the giveaway!
By the way you got me addicted to Tula - but I didn't know which of your postings got me hooked :)

Stacy said...

Hi friend! One of my favorite posts is this one: http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2010/03/breakdown-or-breakthrough.html

I really liked her talk on Q102 also. It really resonated and it was good to see someone else felt the exact same.

I like the life posts intermixed with crafting. I don't think you can get a true picture of someone just by their crafting (although it tells you a lot!) and it's nice to know a little bit more.

QuiltyGoodness said...

This one made me laugh--that picture with the toy car is hilarious.
http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2010/03/wip-wednesday-elijahs-twin-quilt.html

wishes, true and kind said...

Happy, happy blogiversary! You have definitely touched me and made me laugh! I want to pick one of the posts from the hexagon quiltalong because I am loving that right now, but I guess I'll pick this one:
http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2009/07/label-tutorial-spoonflower-way.html
with the quilt label tutorial. Now I just need to do it!

Thanks for all the inspiration encouragement :)

The Pink Fawn said...

Happy blogversary! I really like your doll quilt post:http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2009/09/doll-quilt-swap.html
Such a cute free-form project!

Robin said...

I would have to say your turnover topper project...I have three turnovers and honestly didn't know what to do with them...Now I do! YOur blog is awesome...Happy Blogaversary!

Lori's Quilting Confessions said...

Wow, just one huh? Happy Blogiversary! I like your Sonnet Post from May 2009. All your posts are very engaging and you always throw in a tip or two!

angela said...

Wow - I can't believe it has only been a year! I loved the post about your friend and her apple pie (yummy, too) - and your log of huge amounts of fabric in and out - and that tour of your friend's super quilty house. Love all the tutorials and sharing the fun of publication.

Congrats on one year! (And I REALLY want that circle cutter and quilt kit - been eyeing both of them!)

Robyn said...

Congrats on one year! I follow you in my reader and always enjoy your posts. I just checked and I have all the hexagon piece along entries 'starred.' It makes such a simple and bold quilt. It's on my to-do list!
Thanks for a wonderful giveaway!

mandy said...

My favorite post was http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2009/10/shabby-rose-take-2-done.html. I just love that shabby rose quilt, it's at the top of my to-do list! Love your blog and love your personality that shines through in every post! Congrats, girl!

deserae said...

My favorite posts are the hexagon quilt alongs! They are so fun and educational!

Jolene said...

The reason I started following your blog, ( I guess I'm not an actual follower, but I read your blog all the time) is because of the weekly giveaway list. Then I just kept on reading because you have lots of cool projects on the go (like the hex quilt-a-long which I'm still thinking of doing). Here's my fave post:
http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2010/03/wip-wednesday-my-oldest-quilt-still-in.html

ErinB said...

I am new to your website and I am now checking it everyday to see what new things you are doing. Everything I have seen so far is beautiful!

Amanda said...

Exciting!
I stop by everyday just to see what great things you have created. I have learned a lot from your blog and for that I thank you. I like the fun posts/pictures from quilt market.

Amanda R.

Ginny said...

Ohh hard to choose.... I think it would be your labels post, since that is the one that gets used on every quilt :)

Sandy said...

Your anniversary post made me cry "happy tears" Love is what makes the world go around. This world is a better place because you are an important part of it! Congratulations on a year "well done" I look forward to the next 525,600 minutes!!
with love & gratitude
Mom

Walden said...

I only found your blog a few weeks ago because of your hexagon instructions. However, I like your attitude in the blog posts. You don't talk down to your readers and you seem to have an attitude that none of it is difficult if you just try it.

Tricia said...

Love that song!

Congrats on your blogiversary and everything you've achieved this year! I couldn't imagine how one person could accomplish so much and still blog, if I didn't know you. My favorite post is this one: http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2009/12/wedding-funeral-and-some-much-loved.html. The one where you discover you weren't the first quilter in the family. I"m still waiting to find that out, so for right now it's just me although I've inspired younger generations in the family.

Always Sewing said...

I came to be a follower with the hexagon quilt along. I am so loving this project, thank you for all you great directions and ideas.

Quiltingdaisy said...

I've been following along with you for 7-8 months and it feels like a lot longer because of how connected I feel to you. It's like a camaraderie.
I can't get enough of tutorials and quilt-alongs. There is so much I want to learn and not enough time to create. But I am hoping that your tips, tricks and examples will sink in somehow.
I do remember being totally struck and fascinated to see your 'studio'. It felt so intimate to be let into your 'personal' space. I'm trying to organize my own personal design space and it's helpful to see how others are able to pull it off.
LOVE
Sharon

Nicole Morris said...

Wow all this in a year? My favorite post is the one where you got the mag cover. I love that you share your good news with us. You have a presence on the quilt blog circuit that is energetic and fun, keep it up!

teresamnj said...

Hi Julie! Happy Anniversary!!! I think my very favorite blog post of yours is one of your firsts, "The Beginning". http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2009/05/beginning.html

I love the story of how you "borrowed" your mom's sewing machine, and how you came to see quilting in a whole new light after watching "Simply Quilts" with Alex Anderson, as that show also got me hooked into quilting. I look forward to spending many more happy moments with you reading your blog, and learning all kinds of cool things. Thanks!

why not sew? said...

Congratulations!
My favorite post was about your grandmother and finding her quilts. Learning that you had the same talent as your granma is awesome! I was really happy for you.

Erin

Erin said...

http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2010/04/jif-it-isnt-just-peanut-butter.html

that one is my favorite. i think that is close to the neatest personalized present i have ever seen!

happy blogiversary!!!

Gene Black said...

Pick a favorite? Just one? You are kidding, right?

Okay fine, it seems you introduced me to Tula Pink and her NEPTUNE line at this post http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2009/06/neptune.html

But I must say your tutorials are excellent too. I learned to cut a circle with a CD from one of them, but oh that cirle cutter would make it so much easier

twinkid said...

I've been as my friend Jodie calls it "a blog stalker" for quite sometime. It wasn't until recently that I made online names for myself and such. I remember when you talked about your sorority sister/friend having lost her battle with cancer. It just stuck with me for several reasons. I love Maya Angelou. And I have a son in college and boy/girl twins that are 16. It just made me realize everyday is a gift and lives can change in an instant. I clicked on the buttons for her site and read what you have continued to do in her honor. What a true sister!
I started sewing at age 14 and have loved it ever since. I took private tailoring lessons right after I got married (24 years ago) and you remind of me! I love to see young girls mastering the art of sewing!! Rock on, Julie!!

Meg said...

Happy bloggiversary, Julie! You're an inspiration, and you get me to try all sorts of new things outside my comfort zone. Like this: http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2010/04/hexagon-quilt-along-cutting.html

I never, ever, would have tried this quilt without your influence, tutorials and quilt-along. And I am having such fun with it--thank you!!

Kaye Prince said...

Woohoo, congratulations! While I (of course) love all the quilt and stash posts, I think my two favourites would have to be the post about the Jif pillow (hello, so fun!): http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2010/04/jif-it-isnt-just-peanut-butter.html and the post about your friend Lauren and participating in the 5k run: http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2009/11/halloween-and-remembering-lauren.html

Can't wait to see you next week!

Staci said...

I came for the giant pincushion and stayed! (Made two of them!) I enjoy your MBS projects and tutorials, but just love seeing what you are making, how you use colors and patterns together, and appreciate the humor and enthusiasm I find here. Thanks for a great blog!

Mai Future said...

Congratulations on not only one year, but a really good one. It's hard to choose a quilt post because so many of them have given me inspiration, so I choose your studio one. I find it interesting to see what environment surrounds the birth of these creations. http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2010/02/my-studio.html

MAMACRAFTY said...

hexagon quilt along...Block #1
This is the first time I found your blog. I saw your hexies and thought I would follow along. Then I saw your cool weekly posts on give away's. From that moment on I have been hooked. First thing on Saturday mornings I click on your blog to see if you posted the newest hexie for the week. Thanks for offering such an entertaining site!!

Rosie1925 said...

I have no specific post to cite! Many of the blog pictures are blank rectangles with red X's! Oops! But, I follow you in Bloglines, and your blog is one of the "honeys" that I am eager for! You teach as well as show, and that is a big plus IMHO. That is what keeps it on my list of "gotta read first!".

Brooke said...

I love your Giveaways Going on in Blogland series. I wouldn't know about half the giveaways if it wasn't for you!

Cara said...

Happy Blogiversary! My favorite posts have been the quilt alongs. I love the communal feel, and watching everyone's ideas come together in different ways!

Blue Is Bleu said...

Happy anniversary!!!! :) I started singing the Rent song and my husband started sighing at me. Hmph.

I love your post about your mommom's passing and all the quilts with family history.

Jenniffier said...

I first found my way here from moda bake shop http://www.modabakeshop.com/2009/08/candy-box-youth-quilt.html while I was looking for a baby quilt. But what keeps you on my list are the great posts. I enjoyed seeing the hexagon quilt-a-long and I really like the stash reports. Thanks for sharing. I enjoy reading your blog.

audrey said...

Congrats on your blogiversary! My all time favorite post is your binding tutorial. I love the 2.25" binding, SO much nicer! It's even linked on my blog :)

Jamie Mueller said...

Congrats on your blogiversary! I love reading your blog and check it everyday! You are so talented and bring a lot of inspiration and thats why I check back with your blog everyday! My favorite posts are your new creations! Thanks for blogging!

uffizi said...

http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2010/04/and-winner-is.html

That is my favorite! Can you guess why? :)

Tracey said...

My favorite blog post? I'm going to have to go with http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2010/03/hexagon-quilt-along-supplies.html. Why? Because that bundle of Nest fabric by Tula Pink has send me into a frenzy trying to find any of it I can!

Mary Grace McNamara said...

I have enjoyed each post I have read on your site, but one really made me want to do something fun and messy with my children, which in my book makes it a winner...the chocolate covered pretzel post!

The quilt is darling and the magazine is fabulous and I've been tempted many times to purchase the half circle template but haven't yet, so I'd love to win any one of these wonderful prizes!

Happy anniversary! It's nice to have a way to look back on your year and see what you've accomplished.

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

It can't be just one year Julie!! You are amazing. Happy Blogiversary!
My favorite post is one of your awesome creations http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2010/03/square-city-in-mccalls-quilting.html
I'm a Hunky Dory fan AND a Rent fan!!
Here's to many, many more!!

Marilyn said...

Happy One-Year, Julie!! It's incredible how much you've squeezed into your blog in just one year.....which is what I love about it! I can come here and be inspired by your finished quilts or pick up a tutorial or find where to buy something or where to enter to win something! Thanks for your sharing spirit and your sweet humor! Favorite post?...any with a photo of Concrete Garden--I LOVE that quilt!!!

rachael said...

happy blogiversary, girl! my favorite moment isn't exactly blog inspired but it's what i hope you keep doing with your blog, "just keep driving... just keep driving.." ;-)

PioneerValley said...

Happy blogiversary!

and thanks for putting "Seasons of Love" in my head. I LOVE that song -- and all of Rent, really.

Shannon said...

Julie Congrats on the 1 year. I have to say you really impress me...you have accomplished so much. I've just started my blogging journey and I aspire to be as productive as you. My favorite article/post? I have 2 - the one where you were first published in a magazine and your binding tutorial. You being published in a magazine is inspiring to me and as a new quilter....your binding tutorial is the BEST! Kudos to you and Sew On!

Tammy said...

Congratulations! There really isnt just one entry I love...I love your blog because of your wit, your beautiful creations and how talented you are! I love the time you put into the blog and the tutorials and how you answer our questions personally. Your blog is awesome!!!!

Ariane said...

Wow! You have had an amazing year! Congratulations. I do love your blog and it was really hard to chose which was my favorite. But I do love your hexagon quilt along. I haven't had the time to try it out yet, but it's on my to do list. I've been watching every step. Thanks for all you share. You inspire us all.

Kat said...

COngratulations. I have only been following for a few weeks, so I will link the post that started me down the rabbit hole.

The One and Only said...

Since I'm new to quilting I always like to look at tutorials so I really like your Spoonflower label tutorial. It opened my eyes to getting your own fabric made which I then told a friend about who does his own clothing line. Thanks for opening my eyes up to a whole other world!! Congrats on your blogiversary!!

traceyjay said...

Has your blog only been around 1 year?!? I can't believe it!

Congratulations!

I love WIP Wednesdays... and don't know if I have a favorite. Actually, maybe my favorite post of all time was the market preview with you guys laughing setting up booths.

I love the multiple mitered borders tute.

It's been fun to connect with you!

Sunday stashes are great too. :)

What Comes Next? said...

Wow! You have packed a lot into a year of blogging - congratulations! I've been following you since I think, about last june, with my favorite blog todate - I love so many it was tough, (and thank you for the reason to go back through your archives!) being the Spoonflower labels one (http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2009/07/label-tutorial-spoonflower-way.html)
This was fabulous - introduced me to Spoonflower, and while I haven't yet tried it out, I am constantly thinking about what my label would look like! Your tutorials, your apple pie recipe - yum! your studio space - your drooling over new fabric lines! Love it all, thank you!

blueberrymoon said...

It's so hard to pick just one post!
I return to your blog often while in the midst of a project. Inspiring and informative you are!!! But my favorite is the "Candy Box" quilt post. I love the design. THX for all you do!

Melissa said...

Okay, this may seem dumb but I have a soft spot for your "Canon vs. Nikon" post, simply because it was the newest post when I discovered your blog. I've been reading ever since! Happy blogiversary!

karen said...

Congratulations on your blog anniversary. I was introduced to your blog your through Dana's Old red Barn Co Quiltalong and your hex quilt. Your instructions are so clear and I love the variety of blocks you can make with your pattern.

My favourite post is
http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2010/04/jif-it-isnt-just-peanut-butter.html

What a great unique idea - it sure made me laugh to see the little guy hug his pillow.

Rachel Locke said...

I just started reading your blog with the hex quiltalong. I really enjoy it. Thanks for all that you do!! Looking back through your old posts I really liked the binding tute (although half the pictures didn't show up :( )always looking to improve my binding. I also really liked your giant pincushion Tute. I want to go try one now. :)
Thanks for such a great giveaway.

Micki said...

Congrats on your blog anniversary! I love everything about your blog, but your tutorials are wonderful and I have tried a few of the techniques you taught. You are a sweetheart , and that shines through your blog.

Patty said...

I love seeing all of your great quilts! The post that's helped me the most though is the perfect binding tutorial because I'm still learning alot of basics. Thanks!!

Sequana said...

My fave post of yours is the one about your Moda Bakeshop cushion couture project 'cause that's the one who brought me over here.

I've had you in my Bloglines reader ever since and never regretted it.

Happy Blog Year!

whatktmadenext said...

Wow, I didn't realise you've only been blogging a year! Happy Blogiversary! I think my fav post is the tutorial for your dolly dresses quilt. I heart that quilt!

eatmoresmores said...

I really liked the posts about market - here's a link to one - http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2009/11/market-post-2-modaland.html. Quilt Market is one of those things I would love to experience someday! Thanks for sharing your time there. and Congrats on your blog and quilting success!

Heather said...

AAAAAAaaaahhhhhh (screaming fan - hands wavin' in the air!)Wooohoooo.... This is my favorite blog post of yours! Rent is also my all time fave - especially the movie version. Thank you for all of th daily inspiration in amazing vivid color.

Crafty Maine Mom said...

My favorpost was the announcement of the next siggy swap. I love connecting with other quilters.

Martina said...

Congratulations! Actually it's hard to say what was my favourite post. I love to read them all. But the one I just needed then was the tutorial about binding on January 4.2010. This helped me a lot. Love all your great quilts and I am looking forward to read more! Thanks so much!

Luv 2 Kreate said...

Congrats!
I love your blog for many reasons. It is informative, creative, an fun. One of my favorite post is this http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2010/04/jif-it-isnt-just-peanut-butter.html BECAUSE for one it was an adorable gift and two I loved seeing pics :)

PamKittyMorning said...

Happy bloggiversary!

charlotte said...

happy blogiversary, julie!!! i look foward to reading all your posts, but a favorite of mine would have to be: http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2010/01/little-bit-of-love.html.
i had been on the fence with the love fabric collection due to the large flower prints, and your birdie sling inspired me! i also related sooo much to you in that i tend to plan last minute projects just before leaving town(:

courtney*adele said...

my true fav would have to be you being featured on moda bake shop, because that's how i came across your blog in the first place.... but i also liked your recent circles post http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2010/05/baby-circle-around.html because i've been planning on doing a circle quilt next. you gave me motivation to get going on it (after my stiff neck quits hurting!!) thanks for all the inspiration!!

The Farar Family said...

Although I drool over basically everything you make, I REALLY liked cushion couture!

http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2010/04/cushion-couture.html

I have it in my stash of "Thinks to Make" only I intend to use the patterns to create a quilt rather than pillows.

I am new to quilting and I really enjoy your projects and tutorials. You make it all look so easy! Thanks!

CJ said...

Happy Blogiversary!! I love to see all of your creations and get inspired that way but I love me some tutorials!
http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2010/01/perfect-binding-tutorial.html

Erica said...

I especially loved http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2010/04/jif-it-isnt-just-peanut-butter.html
because it's funny!
And I follow the weekly-giveaway-post...

a.niza said...

Congratulations ! It was your post "P.S. I Quilted" and I started to follow your blog and flickr. Overall, I like your fabric choice and colourways.

Leigh Ann said...

I love everything about your blog! I am a new reader, but I've gone back and read almost everything you've written. My favorite post would have to be the perfect binding tutorial. It's what got me to your blog in the first place.

Christina said...

Amazing giveaway and congratulations! I'm new to your blog in the past month or so. I really appreciate you turning me on to Tula Pink! Like here http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2010/05/sunday-stashwk19.html
I'm interested to see the rest of the hexagon quilt along too! Best wishes.

The Jenkins said...

Your "Play quilt" brought me here from Moda Bake Shop. And I've been hooked looking at your patterns and the awesome quilts you come up with.

Megs said...

http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2010/05/baby-circle-around.html

I'm a new follower of your quilt so my favorite is a recent post - but I just adore the baby circle around quilt! I love the frayed raw edge applique and Nicey Jane is quickly becoming one of my favorite fabric collections.

Of course, your binding tutorial is pretty awesome as well! I'm kind of a binding freak....

Congrats and happy celebrating!

holly k said...

http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2010/04/sunday-stashwk15.html

I haven't been following your blog for very long but I think this is something that captured my attention...your photos! I love seeing what you are up to, your fabric selections, close-up pics (I love photography). And I like how you have your name imprinted into the corner of your photos (I want to do that on mine!!!) It's just fun to see what you are working on. And I thnk one of my other favorite posts was the one with all the junk food photos...I can relate...but seeing it in photos reminded me maybe a diet change would be good for me!!! :) Real life...that's what keeps me reading...you are real!

Brittany said...

As my little brother once put it ... Congo Rat Shoe Lacings ... on your 1 year anniversary. I first encountered your blog in the ORB Hex Along that you are hosting ... many thanks on that, we are having far too much fun. But aside from that the reason I love to read your blog is the way that you write it. Everything is very clear, but put in a creative manner. Like today's post instead of flat out telling us it is your one year anniversary, you used modified Rent lyrics ... great choice :-). Keep on keeping on ... and again congrats. :-)

Julie said...

Your creativity and energy are great. Yes, the bibding tute is great- especially the part about connecting the ends- ugh wish I had found that two days ago!!! Happy Anniversary :)

Alyson said...

Congrats!! That is an awesome year! And very busy!

Carrie said...

Julie,
I really don't think that I can pick a favorite. I am a new quilter who reads your blog daily. I enjoy following another young quilter who also loves fun fabrics and modern designs. Your tutorials are always very easy to understand and the finished product...stellar! You are a great inspiration with a great sense of humor. Keep up the good work!

kaiolohiakids said...

Probably my favorites & why I keep coming back are your tutorials-especially on the mitered corners on the double borders.
But I laughed so hard at this one -
http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2010/01/sunday-stash-road-to-cali-version.html
And I guess it made me feel better to know I'm not alone!I just got back from Cali yesterday with a similar haul.
Keep up your most excellent blog-there is a reason you have so many followers!

Rafael's Mum said...

Congratulations on your blogiversary! I only just discovered you throught the ORBC hexies and have added you to my bloglist. I am looking forward to discovering all the lovely posts everyone is raving about !

Megan said...

Woohoo! Congratulations! Lately, my favorite posts have been related to the hexagon quilt-along, but I also like your other weekly themed posts - WIP Wednesdays, etc. I always love seeing people's projects in progress, even if it does distract me from what I'm supposed to be working on. Here's to another great year of happy blogging!

free indeed said...

I think I started following because of the hexagon quilt along. I saw your quilt and fell in love and since hexes are an unknown entity for me, there is safety in numbers and I like to have someone hold my hand through the process. More of the same handholding would keep me coming back! Congrats on your milestone!
SHelley
PS. I bought 2 jelly rolls (couldn't find that neptune ANYWHERE for decent money, but still want to do with similar colors. Am waiting on my 60* ruler....

Monica said...

Congrats on a year! (Rent is my favorite broadway play too! Love the song "Seasons of Love".) Anyway, I really enjoy the tutorials you have on your blog. All of them really. As a brand new quilter, it's great to be able to have references like this. And I also like seeing your finished projects and dreaming about the day I'll be able to make something like that.

Ann said...

I am really enjoying the hexagon tute! I am a bit behind but I know where to find it when I get to finishing it this summer or next year! Thanks.

Kati said...

My favorite posts have been your hexagon quilt-along posts because they have inspired me to make hexagon quilt. I never knew how easy they were and was always intimidated until I saw your posts. Thanks!

ladmquilter said...

I love the current hexagon quilt along http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/search/label/hexagon%20quilt%20a%20long but I have been following you for quite a while and you are a wonderful inspiration to us all. Congratulations on your anniversary and keep it coming I love watching. Thanks for the chance to win.

sewcolorful said...

My favorite posts of yours is the ones about your funny nephew, especially in his viking outfit. They are written with love and the way you adore them so much comes through which is just so refreshing.

Magnolia Bay Quilts said...

Congratulations! Here's to many more of your wonderful posts!

Patty said...

Julie, I enjoy reading your blog, I like your tutorials and I think you blog reflect a very positive and creative attitude. The one blog that sticks out in my mind and the the one that hooked me was your post about your Mommon, love the picture of you looking at her quilt and love the history you discovered that day.What a beautiful story and what a treat to have found a connection with you history.
Congratulation on a wonderful year of blogging.

Cindy said...

The binding tutorial - so helpful!

Sara said...

Congrats! What a milestone (I think so since I'm not the best at consistent blogging). My favorite post of yours.....(http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2009/12/dolly-dresses-quilt.html) Dolly Dress quilt. I've never been a girly girl - ever. Now, I have a 14 week old baby girl that has me thinking about dollies, tea parties and dress up!

Freda said...

Congrats! I really liked your cushion couture. I just recently came across your blog via the modern siggy swap and I love your blog. Again Congrats on one year!

Prissy said...

Happy Blogiversary! I've been following your blog ever since the jumbo pincushion tutorial on the Moda Bakeshop. I love that pincushion. Well, and then you went and taught me how to make chocolate covered pretzels! OH. MY. I love this blog!

Carrie said...

I have to say what brought me to your blog in the first place was that you live in Philly, just an hour south of me! I was so excited that there was a very talented quilter blogging and living so close. I keep coming back because I love your sense of humor, your talent, and your honesty.

Nichole said...

yay! happy blogiversary!!!

My favorite post would have to be all of the ones with pictures of your studio. I love seeing where other people do their creating...

this one in particular is my favorite!

http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2010/02/my-studio.html

KarrieLyne said...

Happy Bloggy-versary sweetie!! Time flies by so quickly, hm?

I think I first found your blog from the Moda Bake Shop. I don't know that I could choose a favourite post but I can tell you the post that drew me here and kept me here.

This one. http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2009/11/its-up-to-mom.html

The one where you were doing you're 100th giveaway and you let your mom choose the winners and how she read all of the entries and blogs. I knew that if your mom was that amazing, you must be too. I was right.

You are truly an inspiration and I'm lucky to "know" you! :)

Kari @ Fresh Cut Quilts said...

Happy Anniversary Julie!
You do a great job on your blog and I am inspired by what you do, your quilts, and how much you can accomplish.

kelliemorgan said...

The one I found the most useful is
http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2009/07/label-tutorial-spoonflower-way.html . I love all the moda bake shop tutes. However, I am hoping to win one of these giveaways with my favorite favorite, the circle around quilt. Thanks so much. Happy Blogiversary!

Kimberly said...

Congrats on your blogiversary!

I love all of your Sunday Stash posts. Mostly because I love the eye candy and it makes me feel better about how little I have purchased in comparison. :) I can tell my husband, "See Julie purchased x amount this week and I only purchased one!."
I also love all of your tutorials.

I think my absolute favorite post is from Oct 11 last year. That is the post where you got to meet Tula Pink and quilt market. I know how happy I would be if I got to meet my favorite fabric designer. So I am so happy for you in that post. :)

Jantine said...

It was the hexagon quilt a long that got me here and since then I stayed. Or should I say kept coming back?
I really love the bright colors you use in your quilts and it makes me long for them too. But until now I keep going back into my own safe colors and stash. Maybe some more stashbuilding in bright colors is in order... If only I could get those bright Australian fabrics here in Holland...

lynnquiltsalot said...

Congrats on your blogversary! Love your blog and all of the tutorials. My favorite has to be http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2009/11/sweet-sugar-swirls-tutorial.html. The dresden plate is not the easiest block to make. But your step-by-step instructions helps anyone visualize a completed block. Thanks.

lisa said...

this may seem corney, but my favorite post is the one that lead me to your blog. http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2009/12/giveaway-day.html I entered the give away(and did not win) but looked back over past posts and decided to "follow" you. I've been happy ever since!!

Jenny said...

i was going to say i love your giveaway posts, but that is too easy...so i just looked in my starred favorite posts in my google reader and quickly found your post on your studio.

Congratulations! I'm loving the Hexagon Quilt-a-Long because that's how I found your blog. Thank you for your tutorials and inspiration. Keep up the good work!

Barb said...

Nov 26, 2009--the shop is open
Finally a way to get some cool jaybird stuff!! But mainly, who could resist pics of a cute little guy with blue frosting on his face!! LOL ;o)

Deb said...

I hate to admit this cause is sounds so shallow, but I love your Sunday Stash reports. They make me laugh so hard and want to mark "fail" on your report card. I also love seeing the stuff you buy, my dream stash grows through you!!!

Jennifer_Hannah said...

It would have to be the Vera Bradley post of June 2009. LOVE Vera Bradley and your idea of using VB napkins was genius!!

Karen said...

Congratulations!!!! I enjoyed your 'market post #2 - modaland'. Loved all the eye candy in this post. Thanks for the tour.

Susana said...

Congrats! And many more! I love the tutorials, especially the quilt-along, which I am only reading, but which has made me a little less frightened of hexagons. Thanks!

Lisa said...

I love the hexagon quilt along posts, I'm part of the ORB flickr group and I am loving how easily this is coming together!

Kristy said...

I read your blog every day.....YES that means that sometimes I read the same post more than once. :)
Congrats on your blogiversary! I have many favorite posts, but one I keep referring to is http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2010/02/dolly-dresses-tutorial.html...it is saved to my desktop. I also like the hexagon quiltalong. I really, REALLY want to win that kit, as my FIRST grandbaby is due in November....and as I don't know if it will be a girl or boy, I am thinking your quilt would be PERFECT for either. And as the musical RENT says it is all about LOVE.....and I just want to spread the love. Kristy in Ohio

@home said...

Look at the time you posted your very 1st blog and now look at how many followers you have 1year later.
Congratulations..... Just of to check on my 1st blog !

irridescentstar said...

I love the tutorial at http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2010/01/perfect-binding-tutorial.html

My bindings are no longer bunchy and horrid.

And I wrote you a big long RENT comment but blogger ate it, so suffice to say: RENT love is another thing that makes you awesome.

Dianne said...

My favorite post of yours is definitely the perfect binding post/tutorial. This is going to sound super cheesy...but it has completely revolutionized the way I bind my quilts! They're perfect now :) Congrats on 1 year...and here's a raised glass to many more :)

live a colorful life said...

Your tutorials are really well done, and I definitely want to order some labels through Spoonflower. Favorite post. Hmmmm...I'm working my way through the complete post archives, so I'm not sure....yet

Mrs. Olson said...

I have just recently started following your blog, but have seen several of your tutorials on Moda Bake Shop. I don't have a favorite blog post, but did fall in LOVE with your Circle Around quilt when I saw it in Quilts and More, and then to see it on your blog as a baby quilt...!

Congratulations on your one year anniversary!

Misty said...

Congratulations! I loved your post on Chocolate covered Pretzels http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2010/03/loaded-chocolate-covered-pretzels.html because chocolate and quilting definately go hand in hand, lol! Seriously, thanks for the Hexagon Quilt-a-long and all the neat ideas you share!

OrangeRoom said...

I *big squishy heart* this post, actually. Love rent, love your blog, love this theme, think you're fabulous. I had my 2nd blog anniversary on April 16th and completely forgot about it! Worst celebrator ever!

My favorite post is your Cushion Couture post because I've already made 2 of those pillows and have more in mind, lol.

Debby said...

Wip-Wednesday, March 31, 2010, is my favorite post. It gave me the courage to sort my stash, redo my sewing space, and be more productive! I do love your blog!

Heather said...

Great, now I have that song stuck in my head! Not that it's a bad song or anything.

I like just seeing your progress on things, you have a fun blog, and I wish we could be neighbors, we'd have fun sewing! :D Congrats on the blogaversary!!

Alisa said...

Happy 1 year anniversary! Favorite post, well this is hard because I really love your blog and your work is beautiful. I just loved the "Life Cycle Quilt". Everything about it was wonderful from the tutorial to the absolutely adorable picture of your new niece aliyah. It was such a sweet, sweet photograph. Thanks for the chance to win such great prizes. Many happy more blog posts to you!

Barb said...

Congratulations! I love your Hexagon Quilt Along Tutorials! Thank you so much.

SoozeM said...

I love your hexagon quilt along posts, I love how they are all done by machine and how many variations there are, and you make it seem so easy!! I have my fabrics ready to go, just have to get started :)

Mary said...

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! It's hard to believe you've only been blogging for a year!

My favorite post has to be the Vera Bradley post http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2009/06/vera-bradley.html

I love that you were crazy enough to buy a bag to "harvest" the fabric because you just had to have the print. Love it!

Also, as much as I love quilting and sewing, I love it when you take little breaks to write posts that are a bit more personal. It's fun to learn a bit about the blogger behind the awesome quilts! :-)

Mikelle said...

I love reading your Sunday stash posts. I like to see what people are buying...makes me feel less guilty when I indulge myself with fabric!

RenegadeQuilter said...

Julie - Many congrats on your 1st year!!! I came across your blog from ps i quilt and I have been stopping by here almost everyday since. You inspired me to start my own blog! My favorite post is your binding tutorial - I have printed it out and everytime since when I bind a quilt I refer to it. You rock!!! Keep up the great work!!!

I am in the middle of Circle Around right now! Love it!!!

Silka said...

I enjoyed this blog post about circle quilts( (http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2010/05/baby-circle-around.html). I'm hoping to do circles in a quilt soon.

Jackie said...

Congrats on your big blogiversay!! I have to say that my favorite post was the very last one because you showed us your photographic faux pas. I love it!

SarahB said...

Happy Bloggiversary!

I love all your stash and project posts, but the one that always sticks out to me is your post remembering your friend Lauren.

scottylover said...

Congratulations! I now have that song from rent stuck in my head, going to have to find the CD and listen to it now...maybe I'll just find the DVD and watch it. Can you tell I like it? :)

This is my favorite post:
http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2010/04/sunday-stashwk16.html

It is the one that really got me interested in the Tula Pink fabrics. I HAD to go see what the fuss was about and now LOVE her stuff!

Cheers to many more years of blogging!

benbel said...

y favorite post has to be http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2010/05/five-hundred-twenty-five-thousand-six.html because at first read it brings back that beautiful music from RENT. And it speaks of your wonderful year! So happy for you!

Laura said...

http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2010/02/my-studio.html

I really enjoyed seeing how you have your studio set up. Happy Blogiversary!

ladybugquilting said...

Congratulations! My Favorite post is on the 20th Dec.
Yes it may be sad to start, but when you post about the Vintage Quilts and the history of who made them you had me enthralled, I wish I too had a quilter that far back.My Mother is an exceptional Embroiderer,My Grandmother a seamstress/dressmaker but I am the first Quilter.
The good news is that since I have begun my love affair I now have a few who join me.
My mother,and sister in law are avid quilters now so it will definately be passed through the generations to come.
Thanks for your blog,You inspire me daily!
Linda.

passingdowncrazy said...

I liked your post on all the Neptune quilts. I'd totally forgotten that my quilt was one of them. Maybe I should get that thing quilted!!!

Congratulations on your huge success this year!!!

Sarah said...

Your hexagon quilt tutorial is my fav. Someone may get a hex quilt from me for the holidays.

Thanks for sharing your quilting knowledge with us on your blog. It is one of those that I save to read last.

Janet said...

I loved the "We have a baby" post. Your quilts are beautiful and I love seeing what you're doing but the personal touches make it real for me.

Nicole G said...

I loved your post just after you redesigned your blog with photos of behind the scenes. I also keep coming back to see how you are doing with your stash management plan. How in the world can you buy so much fabric?! It makes me feel not so bad about my fabric compulsions =)

Lynne S of Oz said...

I have two favourite posts - the one for perfect binding and the one for mitred borders. http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2010/01/perfect-binding-tutorial.html
I also have to make some sweet sugar swirls for my aunt in law. She'll love them.
But I also love any of the posts where you say more fabric in than out. Sounds familiar! LOL

I am Arizona; a person, not a place. said...

My favorite post is the one where you show the layout of your studio. I have a decent sized studio, but i still feel that I haven't used the space as efficiently as I can. So, I love seeing other people's studios to get ideas on how to change mine. Here's the link to your post:
http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2010/02/my-studio.html

Michelle Lovatt said...

congrats on a year. I love reading all your blogs. I enjoy the hexagon quilt along and plan to make one sometime soon.

Susan said...

I just discovered your blog recently, but have really been loving it. Congrats on your blogaversary!

nanotchka said...

congrats on your year anniversay and congrats again for all you have accomplished! I enjoyed the hexagon quilt along with everyone else but I must say that I really loved the cushion couture tutorial! I loved all of the pillows and made the whole set because I had the same Moda fabric collection! I made two of the other pillows for gifts in another colorway! Thanks for such clear instructions and all of your inspiration!

Molly said...

Perhaps this is cheating, but I really like this post - what a nice way to sum up a year of blogging! I'm also very fond of your spoonflower label tutorial, and will use it one of these days...write on, Julie!

Katie said...

Congrats!!:) And THIS is my favorite post because I LOVE Rent and I'm going to have this song stuck in my head for the next 5 days!:)

My favorite post is about the one that originally brought me to your blog - your giant pincushion tutorial on MBS (http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2009/07/giant-pincusions-giveaway.html)

I loved the tutorial so much that I had to know more about the maker and have been a fan of your blog since! Thanks so much for the giveaway and happy blogiversary!

momto2wasd said...

I've only been following your blog for a few months, so I decided to look through some of your past posts. I really enjoyed the one called sonnet. It was a fun love story, and those are always good. http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2009/05/sonnet.html

Happy blogiversary! You've done a lot in one year!!

Doina said...

Happy Bloggiversary! I like all of your tutorials, but my favorite is the life cycles quilt!

http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2010/01/perfect-binding-tutorial.html

Candi said...

A year?? That's it? Congratulations!! I like how your personality really comes across in everything that you write (especially when the guild made you increase your stash)! ;) I loved the post about your sewing studio.

polly said...

Congrats! I found your blog when looking for binding tutorials. Your tutorial for perfect binding on 1/4/10. It helped alot! Thanks for the giveaway!

Congrats Julie! What a year of accomplishments for you. And a new niece, too! Here's the post that is now my go-to source for binding - http://www.jaybirdquilts.com/2010/01/perfect-binding-tutorial.html
It definitely improved my binding skills. Thanks for the chance.
