A Little UFO

At the end of every year, I like to make a list of all the quilts I finished that year. This year wasn't as productive as some others have been, as I was out of commission for three months, lying on the couch with my broken foot.  I also like to make a list of all the UFOs still to be finished. This year there are only (ha) about 13 of them left, including this little birdhouse,which I pieced maybe 20 years ago but never quilted. Don't ask me why; I have no idea. But there it was, just waiting for a little TLC and for someone to sew on its buttons.

This was actually a kit I purchased at a quilt show in York, Pennsylvania years ago.  I put on those little "quick triangles" on the back for hanging.
After going through my started and unfinished projects, I decided to count up all the finished quilts in the house. THAT was a real eye-opener. There are about 70 quilts of all sizes stashed away here and there, displayed on shelves, stacked in closets, draped over sofas, and covering beds.  Guess I've been keeping busy!

Good for you for taking "stock". I love all your big and little projects and look forward to seeing more finished unfinished projects.

You have your work cut out for you. Looks like you'll have a busy winter. Ahh...the life of a quilter. What would the world do without us?... Probably be pretty chilly. I'm looking forward to seeing your quilting accomplishments.
