Stats for 2011 / Goals for 2012

I am only counting fabric out of the stash when the quilt is 100% finished. Makes counting the fabric so much easier.

Of the 47 quilts finished this year about 30 only needed to be quilted and bound. I used 443.28 yards of fabric in 2011 - remember some of these finishes are more than 2 years old.

Here are a few of the completed quilts for 2011 -

This is a king size quilt 135 inches sq for my Daughter in law for Christmas. It is adapted from JudyL's book Weekend Quilts. I made the stars different as I already had some green 2.5 inch squares cut and waiting to be used. She wanted it big enough for a pillow tuck and their mattress is a huge pillow top. She seems to like it. It barely fit on my long-arm frame. After making this quilt I made Bill promise we would never ever get a king sized bed.

This baby quilt was made from a yellow flannel charm pack,

Tumbler quilts are one of my favorite scraps quilts to make. This one is twin size.

Had some red and green strips and made this small lap quilt.

While cleaning out one of my cupboards I found a bunch of 6.5 inch star fabric sqs and made this QOV.

I bought 75 yds of fabric in 2011.

Total yards used for 2011 was 368.28. Yippee!

My goals for 2012 are simple.
1 - make one QOV each month.
2 - make one quilt for Ronald McDonald House each month
3 - finish one already started quilt each month (have about 20 of these, some more than 3 years old)
4 - if I complete the above 3 goals each month I can start one new quilt

fabric used YTD - 0
fabric bought YTD - 0

So far so good.......

OH. My. Heck! That is a lot of fabric used. Your goals appear to be very reasonable, also, given your past performance.
