So, do you know how many quilts you've finished? What about how many tops are waiting to be quilted? Or even how many projects (UFOs, WIPs, PIGs, etc.) are in progress? Now add in the kits and BOMs that you are hoping to get to one of these days.
Well, over the weekend I updated my inventory and now know why my sewing room is in total disarray! Here are the stats:
Finished quilts: 88 finished quilts, 27 of which were for my book Triple-Play Scrap Quilts, many were gifts to family and friends over the years, but sadly many are in piles throughout my house.
Unquilted tops: 33. This number is actually down by five over the past two weeks as I've quilted five tops since I now have HQ Pro-Stitcher added to my HQ Avante.
Kits and BOMs: 41. Now this was a shocker! My sister just started quilting. Maybe I need to share some with her.
And finally the WIPs (works in progress), UFOs (unfinished objects), and PIGs (projects in grocery bags): 20! In my defense, four of the 20 have all of the blocks done. I need only sew them together.
Now, add to this my fabric stash and I could probably make more than 150 quilts from what's in my sewing room. YIKES!
But the good news is that I am continually making progress -- whether's it's working on the underway projects or getting quilts finished. I even gave away a quilt on Saturday. A very belated baby quilt. The baby is now 2 years old.
The quilt photo above shows a close-up the quilt made with Hello Luscious by Basic Gray for Moda. I quilted it using a digital circles design by Nancy Haacke of Wasatch Quilting. I had a cone of Aurifil veriegated thread that they so generously donated to all of the attendees at Handi Quilter's Academy a couple years ago. The cone itself was kind of ho-hum. But it was fabulous when quilted! And it went so well with the fabric.
Two-year-old Piper didn't quite know what was going on, but her older sister Hadley is always ready to pose for the camera.
Here's another pic of the quilt:
The other finishes are being bound (thanks Mom!). I'll share them as I get them back from her.
I'm on a roll. Hoping to finish several more over the next few weeks.
