My Polaroid quilt has been very popular this year. (And is now done, come back soon!)
- stepped down after three and a half years of being guild president
- tried teaching, didn’t love it
- submitted four quilts to two shows, all four rejected
- moved house, have more sewing space
Budgeting for quilting:
I had also wanted to spend less on quilting supplies this year. I spend a smidge more than in 2016 but less (and much less) than 2015, 2014, and 2013. However I spent only 38$ on 4.1m of fabric that was for no specific purpose, ie stash.
Every other dollar spent was to finish a quilt off (so mostly backing, batting, binding, thread). I declare that a complete success and when looked at by project, I am very, very pleased with myself.
And that is a somewhat random look at the year that was. Here’s to our very best 2018!
