I have joined some of the other quilters on MQResource to start whittling down our quilting UFO (unfinished) projects. Why?
This is why. The hangers are full of quilts of my own that need to be quilted. To the right of that is a huge box, filled with 2 gal. ziplocks with a project in it. Some are almost finished. Some barely started. And a few kits. The top shelf? 2 buckets on left are 2.5″ strips. Big bucket on right? full of more UFO’s in ziplocks.
UGH. See why I joined? I am not counting. I do not see the point. It would only make you feel much better about yourself, and worse about/for me.
So….. I started Jan 1 with that resolution mantra of Less is MORE. Right. Thinking I could start weeding out my house of all the crap I dont need or want.
and of course on Jan 1 I started an online Mystery quilt. Thus, giving me yet another UFO, right?? sick sick sick. I get it.
So here is what I have done since then….
I added the 2 borders (narrow red, then the wider focal print) to my OBW (One Block Wonder) quilt. It is now hanging up ready to be quilted. Yeah….. out of the UFO category to the UQ (unquilted) category. After it is quilted, it will go to the UB (unbound) category.
I added turquoise/brown/turquoise and wide brown borders on the sides, and a narrower brown border to top and bottom of the French Braid quilt. This one will be for our king size bed when we move our bedroom downstairs some year.
This quilt has also moved to the UQ lineup.
Yay me! I made progress.
