I completed another baby quilt from a panel, and came in just under the wire to claim my final finish for the year!

I've been pretty consistant in my fabric usage, but did better "shopping my stash" some years than others. Some years the clearance sale sirens sang a louder song than others, and this past year, we spent more time with our grandson, and I didn't make too many larger projects. I also quilted more quilts for my guild's community quilt program over the past year, and I quilt with my Bernina B710, with a larger throat, but still much slower than a sit down or long arm machine. Next year I will be starting with a deficit, as I have ordered 25 baby quilt panels, which will be completed and donated to my guild over time. They haven't arrived yet, so I didn't have to count them for 2017!
I'll still keep track - I love adding a finished project to the list, and seeing the list grow over the year, just as I love all the aspects of quilting from start to finish.
I wish everyone a wonderful "quilty" and productive new year!
