2015 Finished Quilts



Sometimes you don't realize what you accomplish until you take the time to review your efforts. I was a bit disappointed to realize that I only finished 4 of the 12 quilts that were on my 2015 UFO list. However, when I reviewed my quilty adventures from the past year I was delighted and amazed to realize that overall I finished 20 quilts, only 4 of which were on the UFO list!  You can see all those blog postings here, but this is a summary list:

*5 miniature quilts (Tucker, Times Nine, Tiny Tumble, Wisdom of Friends, Hugs and Kisses)

*5 wallhangings (Country Roads, Cozy Afternoon, Always Home, Light Side of the Moon, A New Beginning)

*5 lap quilts (Scrappy Braid, Scrappy Carolina Chains, Under The Sea, Polka Dot Batiks, One Stick at a Time) 

*5 bed quilts (Starburst, Confluence, Hero's Homecoming, Pointed Prisms, Big Stitch Sampler)



Don't you think it's a little bit odd that I finished 5 quilts in each category? And is it also weird that 5 of the finishes were hand quilted?!? 
FIVE was the number of the year for 2015!
Give me a high five!

5 is a great number. Espcially on January 5th. Great job of finishing things up this year. Even if they weren't the ones on your UFO list, it was a fabulous year of finishes.

That is wonderful! And so funny about the five each. It really was your lucky number!

Mary said...

YES! The finishes out weigh the Non-finishes. You were very prolific last year. Scrap Squad helped that total. Big high 5 from a #5.

What a coincidence! Five was your number last year.

That's an amazing year! Thanks for taking the time to blog. We all enjoy seeing your quilts and the links on Slow Stitching Sunday. Hope 2016 turns out to be just as productive.

Congrats! I write down what I work on, each day, in my sewing room. It helps me to realize that I DID accomplish stuff each month.

Congratulations on a great year of finishing! If you are still disappointed about the number of UFOs you manage to finish, just realize that all those other finishes kept the UFO list from getting any longer.
