2013 Quilting Accomplishments

About a year ago I made a list of quilts I had in my mind, some of which had been bouncing around in my head for years. Over the past 12 months I've kept track of the quilts I made from that list, as well as the ones that were surprises - unplanned and unknown at the beginning of the year.

The results: I made 9 from the possibilities list, plus 15 surprises. Of those two dozen quilts, 16 were throw size; the rest were wallhangings. Whew!

Here is the list of possibilities and finishes:

I enjoyed that experiment so much, I'm going to do it again for 2014. See here for the current possibilities list. For the next few weeks I'll add to the list as I remember projects.

Follow along and see what happens in 2014!
