Okay...I'm not very good at keeping up with blogging...
...which led me to miss the not only the 3rd Quarter 2016 Finish-A-Longs...sigh...but also the 4th Quarter.
Sigh...[insert sound of palm hitting forehead]
But in the spirit of end of the year wrap-ups...(only six days late)...I did make my goal of having only 40 (yes 4-0) UFOs remaining on my list at midnight on December 31st.

By December 31st, I had finished: (drum-roll please)
3 Bed-sized quilts (one twin and two king)
|My 1st King size quilt!|
19 Lap quilts
|Big Lap Quilt|
10 Small quilts (think wall size to cat size...or baby size, whatever)
|Started at QuiltCon...finished for Rooster (the cat on the right)|
That's a total of 32 finished quilts...29 quilted by me and 3 quilted by credit card (thanks MSQ and Sew Shabby Quilting!)
|Quilted by Me! (from this awesome pattern)|
Also...I purged some really old fabric stash (to friends and charity) and 13 UFO projects that were just never going to get finished (again to friends and charity)...let's be honest, tastes change.
Speaking of really old UFOs, the 2016 finish that wins the prize for being the oldest (started in 1997!) is this tiny Irish Chain, which now keeps my washing machine nice and dust free! Thank you!
|An oldy...but goody (37"square...and it took 19 years to finally finish!)|
|Added...AND finished this year!|
|I think I need to work on my picture taking skills|
