Time to tally up and see what was accomplished in the quilt workroom in the year just past.
Most of the quilts can be seen if you click on the '2014 quilts' tab above. I thought I'd let you do that if you're interested instead of making a very photo-heavy post. Hope that's ok with you.

This just counts the quilts I finished in 2014 - not any of the works-in-progress, or UFO's. That's an entirely different list - and I'm not sharing that! But all-in-all quite a bit was accomplished this year.
Yards purchased in 2014: 55 1/2
Yards used in 2014: 76
Stash reduction: 20 1/2 yards!!!
I think I'm most excited about using up 20 more yards than I purchased this year. (at least as far as I kept count) I really tried to keep my fabric purchases to just what I needed to finish up a project. With very few exceptions, I really stuck with that this year.
I hope you will stick with me in 2015 and leave a comment when you stop by, so we can share with one another the fun we have when we get the chance to quilt awhile.
