Quilt Inventory

Quilt Inventory:

Here is a compilation of quilts that are in my life! I would love to note the prices I paid for quilts I have purchased. Can you imagine calculating the cost incurred on making some of these?

I would also like to have an idea of when I made some of these. I don’t have labels on many of them because most are still works in progress. All my labels would read Jan 1989 to October 2008!
