Well, I’m cleaning up my studio shelves that are full of UFOs, anyway.
The recent Making Connections blog hop quilt that I finished was one of my oldest UFOs. Finishing that up made me realize that I can finish up some of those projects pretty quickly, so I looked through the piles and found a quilt-as-you-go table runner that I wanted to add more quilting to before binding it.
So I did.
Then I found two little experiments I had put together after a guild workshop where we played with paints and stencils and hotfix crystals. All they needed was binding.
So I did that, too.
Now that I’ve taken care of the lowest hanging fruit, I have to assess the next steps.
Most of my UFOs are lap-sized quilt tops, folded up with backings and bindings, just waiting for me to pull the trigger on the quilting. A friend’s daughter liked one a lot, so last night I got it basted with the last of my glow-in-the-dark stars fabric pieced into backing (there wasn’t quite enough of it left for the whole back) and should have it finished within the next week.
I think it’s time to make a plan to empty these shelves! Do you have a stack of quilt tops waiting for quilting, or do you always finish what you start?
