A recap of sewing goals for 2017.
Use 200 yards of fabric from stash --- used 155.18 yards
Finish 1 UFO per month --- finished quilting 7
Not buy any fabric --- bought 1/2 yd. and was gifted 3 fat quarters
Make 5 QOV - made 8 (3 quilted, 5 tops to be hand quilted by our QOV
I also made 20 bowl cozies for gifts, a few kennel quilts for animals of the fires in California, pillowcases for charity and QOV, 3 baby quilts not on the UFO list and several group quilts with friends for QOV. In addition to quilting, I finished several pairs of knitted socks .
I'm happy with the results for the year, but hope to use more from my stash and lower my UFO list by 12 or more.
Here's a few pictures in review of some of the quilts.
