my blog in September which I took to the first UFO meeting of the season. Some of these are on my blog wish list and some are not. From this pile, I have finished two quilts - this one which was given as a wedding present in the fall, and this one which I am giving to my Aunt for Christmas. So, if you are keeping track of all of this...that still leaves me with
So, for 2011 I am doubling (tripling?) my efforts and am signing up for Judy's online UFO challenge group. Here's my list:
2. Celebration 9 patch
3. Houses and trees
4. Quiltville mystery
5. Quilt-as-you-go project
Judy's June mystery
10. Basket wallhanging
12. Garden Path
A couple of these are so old, they are from pre-blog (and pre-computer!) days, and I don't even have photos of them. #6 through #12 were started in 2010 so they aren't aged very well yet! I would be beyond delighted to get this list of quilts finished and out of my sewing room! Wish me luck in 2011!
If you want to join in the fun, click here to go to Judy's blog and sign up. Why not start your own blog and keep track of your quilting efforts in 2011? (It's easy - click here.)
I did just as you advised and started my own blog yesterday! So far so good...I was amazed at how easy it was to get started. I'm doing Judy's UFO challenge too...I think I'm up to 30 UFOs. And of course I can think of a couple I forgot to add to that list. It's just amazing how these projects multiply!
I'd like to know just how many UFOs you really have!
Oh Gail...I'm too scared to even go there!
Sometimes ignorance is bliss :)
I wouldn't call it a PROBLEM! LOL The last couple of years, on the first of January, I've made various lists of my projects -- UFO's, kits, wanna-do's, to-be-quilteds -- and 2010's had 49 projects JUST on the UFO's list. (It's not a problem; it's just that I'm a visionary! LOL) I finished 12 this year (and possibly three or four more, if I get to sew like I want to the next two weeks). That's progress! I, too, posted a list on my blog earlier this year after seeing your list (that's SUCH a good idea, so I stole it!! :-D) and it's help keep me grounded and not off in the clouds dreaming ALL the time! :-D Excellent job this year! And I'm off to check out Judy's challenge!
How fun, the frenzy of getting ready...your quilt will be just beautiful!
Great list. Good luck crossing some of them off in 2011. One step at a time, right?
good luck! It should be a fun year for us all!
YEA, Glad you joined all of us habitual UFO-ers... It should be a good year to get a few extra off those lists! One or two a month doesn't sound too hard to do.
Kathy -- re thread breakage. I love presencia and have had no problem with it in both long arm and domestic. Can't say more about it other than know it is cotton. And it has beautiful luster which is what I like. Have you tried a drop of silicon on the spool? Or a whole line of it? Or you might want to feel the thread path and see if there are any burrs along the path. A crocus(?) cloth will buff burrs out. Another thing that helps me is give up. And try the next day. It amazes me how often that solves my thread problems. Bizarre but what can you say. Good luck. B.
Awesome progress. Perhaps I'll join the UFO challenge as well.
