I made 70 quilts, 3 wall hangings, 10 pillows, 6 placemats and a table runner this year. I participated in 5 quilt-a-longs and tested 7 patterns for Myra at Busy Hands Quilts. My goals were to make 36 quilts (20 of them from the bin). I reached part of my goal in making the quilts, but I didn't get into the bin enough this year. I've had a lot of fun quilting this year!
42 quilts - These are my regular yearly quilts. I love making these lap quilts. 11 of these had fabrics that came out of my "bin". I hope I can get into that more next year and get that fabric used up.
19 minecraft quilts - These also came from my shop. I offered custom block choices and 4 sizes of quilts. I think my customers enjoyed having choices with these quilts. This was fun, but a lot of work! Here is just a few of them.
Goals for 2017
1. Make 40 quilts again this year.
2. Get better at some new quilting designs and venture out into free motion quilting.
3. Use the stash as much as possible. Have a net change of more than 48 yards.
I know there are big changes coming in my personal life, so I hope to get as much time to sew as I did this year. I am thankful for all that I was able to do this year and for my quilty friends online.
Happy New Year to all of you!
