Year in Review, 2017 edition

and best of 2017 link up, hosted by Cheryl at Meadow Mist Designs.



Quilts finished: 10, including five long standing works in progress

Perimeter of those 10 finished quilts: 2019″ = 51.28m of binding sewn. Used six different binding techniques.

Gave three! bedsize quilts away. I wrote about one of them here. And then MARY FONS wrote about me on her FB page.

My Polaroid quilt has been very popular this year. (And is now done, come back soon!)


Other stuff:

  • 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!
