2013 Quilting in Review and 2014 goals

I have been going through posts from the past year, reviewing my quilting output. My goals for 2013 were to finish more projects than I started, and also to finish at least 4 UFOs. I was successful on the UFOs, and came very close on the starts vs. finishes goal. 

I started 14 new projects this year. Of those, 9 were finished and one became a quilt top. Most that got finished were smallish projects--5 sets of placemats, 2 paper-piecing pattern samples, and 2 baby/children's quilts. The unfinished new projects are mostly throw-sized or larger quilts.

I also finished 4 UFOs and joined one old set of blocks into a top. All of these UFOs were started between late 1990s and 2003. Most were quilt tops that needed quilting and binding.
