Have you ever created a written record of all your UFOs? Actually made a list of ALL of them, and what is required to turn them into a finished quilt, bag, placemat, etc?
I recently did this and it was a humbling experience. Page after page of unfinished projects, many for this blog, but many more for myself, family, and friends.
For myself, I'd really like to finish this quilt of all 365 squares from the original project:
Also these goddess faces that didn't work for Power of Now could easily be made into a tote bag:
And there's all these unfinished quilt tops, neatly folded in plastic bins just waiting to be basted and quilted...
So how about it? Shall we make a date - just ONE DAY out of the week to work on our UFO projects?
Not only will this keep us all on track for getting projects completed, it's also a terrific way to make gift quilts for the holidays.
Rather than start all new projects from scratch, start pulling out those old tops and figure out which ones can be quickly completed to create a wonderful gift for someone you love!
Best of all, we're going to link up with this new series, so if you have a quilt top that's been in the closet for years because you just don't know how to quilt it, get a photo of that troublesome top online and link it up on these posts to get some advice!
On Sunday's we'll link up with any progress we've made on our UFOs or a photo of a UFO quilt you just don't know how to finish.
On Mondays, I'll post again with tips and advice to help you bust through the roadblocks stopping you from finishing those quilts!
Remember, this is just 1 day out of the week. Pick a project you can pull out quickly, then find a bin or drawer you can stuff it into after your UFO day is done. So every Sunday from here on out the Free Motion Quilting Project is
going to be UFO central - whatever you got, pull it out cause it's time
to finish it.
See ya next week with some UFOs in tow!
