    Oh me, let's see......

    I made a Texas quilt
    Gone With the Wind
    Fireman Baby Quilt
    Elephant Baby Quilt
    Wizard of Oz tree skirt
    3 table runners

    Currently I am making another baby quilt and there are two UFO's laying on my bed.

    Guess I have had a pretty productive year!

    I made a bargello for my daughter which is my avatar.
    A bargello for my son
    A lap size quilt with Dick and Jane fabric that my aunt bought from me
    A bright turquoise/fuscia quilt for my sons girlfriend
    And I'm currently working on a Friendship Star for my cousin that he hired me to make
    And as soon as all my fabric arrives, I'm going to start a quilt for my sister out of Univ of Alabama fabric (probably an Attic Window pattern)

    I finished a 12 year old UFO and made a pinwheel baby quilt, then I moved. After I got my sewing room unwrecked I made an applique wall hanging, and finished the binding on another wall hanging. Right now I'm finishing up the quilting on a lap size throw and I have another one ready to quilt as soon as I'm done with the first one. Then I have two queen size quilts to quilt.

    Completed
    Four baby quilts
    8 blocks for Just One Star
    BOM of Sylvia's Bridal Sampler

    I finally started working on Spangled Cabins a couple of weeks ago, a 62x62 lap quilt. I've had the pattern & been collecting reds, whites, blues for a couple of years, but other quilts had priority. Will probably have that done in a couple of weeks.

    I'm waiting to receive a kit from Operation Kid Comfort & I think when that's done, I'll get pictures for at least one other one. I'll use the reds, whites, blues left over from Spangled Cabins for that.

    I have 2 kits for lap quilts & 2 UFOs.

    I think that's enough to keep me busy for the rest of the year & well into next year. :lol:

    I've made several samples for my sister's quilt shop. Plan to post pictures sometime in the near future and am completing several projects of my own. Can't really count the ones in the planning stage.

    I am just guessing/estimating around 30 quilts from easy to advanced and about 5 Show quilts, one is at the finishing stage of Longarming & 4 more to custom quilt & finish before the end of the year.
    I teach Beginner quilt class, appliqué class & mixed techniques which requires different samples.
    I have about 12 more quilt projects in various stages of production, will post pics as progress allows. I quilt my own on a Longarm machine.

    As a slow sewer, I finished 3 quilts, 1 top is done (a gazillion of flying geese, YIKES!) and my Ocean Waves quilt is in the making and will be a WIP for at least another year. Can't do it in a rush or it'd drive me nuts ;-).

    Oh well, there is another quilt in the making, a memory quilt made out of mens shirts.

    Do ideas of quilts spinning around in my brain count as well ;-)?
    Happy quilting to all of you lovelies.

    I haven't done nearly as many as I'd like to, but am working away at it! Will be working on doing some LAing, and doing some aprons, coasters, pot holders, etc. Will work on UFO's too.

    My guild has had an ongoing PIG or finish your UFO's challenge. I set myself a goal of one a month. I now have a pile of 10 full to King sized quilts finished! It has never ever happened before. These were all completed tops that had been aging in my finished top bin. The bin is still not empty but the lid easily goes on now and I have a wonderful pile of Christmas presents to share. I am now working on my shoe boxes which contain finished blocks but have not yet been stitched into tops. Right now I am trying to decide on a setting for my 2002 Mystery Bag Challenge. I don't think I'll be ready to start anything new for a long time.
