I checked in with my master list, which says I have 8 quilting projects in progress right now. I'd like to get that down to 4 by the end of the year and eventually down to only one ongoing quilting project (plus one garment project and one crochet project). Rhonda in my local modern guild has no UFOs ever because she always finishes one project before moving on to the next. I can totally do that, right?
For a motivational boost, I brought out the projects on my list and took pictures. This list is more or less in the order than I plan to work on them, but who knows! Inspiration may strike. I'm eyeing #7 pretty hard right now.
|A flimsy right now that will be backed by this Denyse Schmidt dot from Joann's (P.S. why is that fabric so freakin expensive?? It's at JOANN'S!)|
|The striped flimsy is the "top" and the grey and print HST flimsy is the in-progress "back" to this double sided quilt.|
|These blocks need to get sewn up and quilted! I'm pretty sure my niece is ready to start using this.|
|5. Wedding Quilt|
|The top is complete but I don't know what to put on the back. It's pretty girly, so should I roll with that or try to counteract it?|
6. Queen of Embarrassing Toasts' Quilt (Modern Quilting Bee)
|My sister has spoken for this quilt. The more I finish it the more I like it!|
7. Giraffe Quilt (Tethered Threads 2 Bee)
8. Secret project
What? It's a secret. No pictures!
I'm glad I pulled them out because it reminded me that I have projects stored away that I LOOOOOVE... I just put them away because something more urgent came along.
So spill the beans... how many projects do you have going? Anybody like Rhonda with only one project? Or are you as bad as me? If you want to join in the UFO busting fun, the Project UFO Flickr group is filled with enthusiasm and support, so head on over!
