This is the beginning
To truly begin you must know where you are starting from,
So I have hauled out all of those UFO's and
The sorting process is truly an eye opening experience. In the past I have made what I called a UFO list, but now I see that it was in no way all inclusive of the projects that I had in waiting. I love the idea Pat Sloan had of sorting them into the groups. It has felt good to finally get rid of some projects that I had started and had for years given me grief and guilt for not finishing. It is alright to have changed what you like and move on in your quilting life. So are you joining me in this sorting......purging process?
Drum roll please............and here is my list.
Group A: Almost Done
- Brown/Yellow braid quilt (it is in the longarm now)
- Blue & Yellow Star Quilt (top is pieced, needs quilting, shown on far right in picture)
- My First Round Robin (Top is complete, Just needs quilting. Shown on left in picture)
- Fishing Theme Quilt (Top is finished, just needs quilting. I am going to finish this as a gift for our son & daughter-in-law in Washington state. Will be a great Christmas gift for this year. to the right of round robin in picture)
- Cathedral Window (This top is close to the size I want, think you can pick this one out....hehe)
- Black & Brights wonky star (A secret sister quilt from Debbie Miller 2005, all 24 blocks are pieced, forgot to put into the picture above, see below.
- Halloween Mantle Cover. (I designed this in 1995 and started hand appliqueing the pieces, but have never finished the project. I truly think this is going in the toss pile, loved the idea I had but have outgrown the project) Wow that was hard to do and say.
- Burgundy and Blue Block of the month blocks- these were started in 1996 and are going into the bag of scraps for the guild meeting.
Kaleidoscope Quilt in browns (20 blocks completed and lots of parts for other blocks.)
- Patriotic Scrappy Bargello Quilt- (This quilt I started a few months ago to give to my uncle who was sick, unfortunately I did not make it in time for him to receive, but I have decided to complete the quilt and give it to his son Jason, I think Jason will appreciate the rememberence. So now it will be a quilt in memory of his dad)
