I keep track of all my quilts and quilted projects on an Excel spreadsheet, and I just took a look at my totals for 2012. Hmmm, something has happened to my momentum!
In 2008 I completed twenty-eight quilts, nineteen of which were for charity. This stack and slash quilt was made and hand-quilted for baby Seth....
....and I made this quilted stocking for our grandson, Aidan.
In 2009 I completed eighteen quilts. Two of my favorites are this "Wacky Blues" quilt I made and hand-quilted for our great-nephew Phenyx....
....and this quilt I made for our grandson Noah's bed using a Hockey print for the focus fabric and red, white and blue alternate blocks.
In 2010 I completed fifteen quilts. One was a Black & White & Bright baby quilt for a friend's new baby, Max....
....and one was a little quilt for Noah's stuffed monkey, made out of the leftovers from his quilt.
Then in 2011 I completed twenty quilts. The only one I haven't blogged about in a previous post is the baby quilt I made for our great-nephew Christopher. I used some blue strips I found in my sewing room and pieced them with white squares, similar to the Allegro pattern by Terry Atkinson, then hand-quilted it.
That brings us to 2012, which will be ending in one more day. That is not much time to bump up my totals, so I will admit that I only completed seven (yes, seven) quilts this year. That includes not one single UFO. ((sigh)) And I even blogged about all of them so there isn't anything else to add. Except maybe one of the reasons. Better make that THREE of the reasons.
