We quilted 282 customer quilts in 2018, and 14 Quilts of Valor. I repaired 11 antique quilts and made 11 customer tee shirt quilts. I also made four large bed quilts for one customer, and 23 charity quilts, both large and small. I made and gifted another 9 to new babies and family members. I made and kept only 2. The only regret is that I haven't had enough time to make more quilts just for fun. Like everyone else, I have a huge pile of patterns, magazines and books all earmarked for future quilts. I guess my resolution for 2019 would be to quilt a bit less for customers and sew more for fun. Let's see how that goes. Meanwhile, here is a compilation of the quilts I made, both for my customers, my friends and family, and myself.

We had a good old fashioned Wazoo family Christmas...yesterday. My son and his family had to leave today to go home. Work awaits. But when there is a 3 year old involved, you can stretch the truth a bit and have Christmas on the 24th, Today will be a quiet (ha!) day, enjoying some old movies, a walk outside, and leftovers. I hope your Christmas was also fun and filled with joy.
