Nerd alert! You have been warned.
I have a spreadsheet called “lifetime quilt tracker.” It should be fairly self evident what the purpose of it is. I discovered this week that I have been somewhat lax about keeping my stats up to date. Like really freaking lax, for more than a year. Oops. So I spent an hour? two? today pulling out quilts, measuring them, and counting the number of pieces in them. And then I inputted all of it and sorted by the finished date. Then I added the start dates when I knew them. Then I found out that spreadsheets will calculate time for you, oh the joy!
Stats for you….
Fastest quilt ever: six days (it measures 20″ x 18″). Slowest quilt: 447 weeks and counting!
Smallest quilt: 3.75″ square. Largest quilt: 98″ square.
I have made 49 quilts (unless I’ve forgotten a few more). I have 13 in progress and one more being started next week. And a million more ideas.
I made my first quilt in January 2004. I started my second quilt in October 2007. My third quilt was May 2010 and I haven’t stopped since.
I never bought any of this fabric:
But when it came out I loved it. It’s SPREADSHEET fabric!
