I’ve been a bit under the weather with a cold, so I haven’t really felt like starting a new project right now. But having finished the purple and red projects, I thought this might be a good time to take a look at my UFO pile–maybe with an eye to elimination of some of them. Very unlikely that I will throw away a quilt top, but I could easily pass it on to my guild for a charity quilt. And, yes, I will feel guilty about not finishing it myself for our charity, but sometimes you simply cannot embrace a project enough to finish it!
I have pics of lots of UFO’s—that are still UFO’s! Most are samples for classes when I was teaching other people’s designs, so they are pretty old. I’ve been doing only my own thing for at least 8 years now, so they are at least that ancient!
There are some like the one below that may actually see the inside of a waste basket…or maybe it’s another one that I can pass on to someone who loves purple!
This one is less than a year old and ready to quilt….and sits in the pile, neglected.
And that’s just completed tops!
There are more and this time I am trying to be very realistic in my assessments. If I truly cannot see myself finishing them, I need to unburden myself. There is at least one that I really love and yet…it sits. That is a prime candidate for ‘quilting by check.’
And in the back of my mind, there are two new project ideas swirling around. They are pressing to become priorities, but I’m trying to hold back. Soooooo much UFO guilt that I need to get rid of…………………………………………..sigh!
