An embarrassing # of UFOs!

Today I quilted and quilted and quilted. I am 90 percent done with quilting my Modern Solid Sampler quilt. But as I was quilting I started thinking about what I want to accomplish this year. I'd like this to be a year of finishes....and to that end I made a list of STARTED quilts. This does not count quilts that are in kits or that have fabric bought for them.
Just ones I've started the sewing on....oh...what a list!!!

I looked back in this blog and found an entry showing pictures of some of these...and some of the UFOs from back then are now done (that feels good!)...but many havent been touched.

Now granted its been a busy few years for me with 4 moves, 2 houses built and a first grandson. But now I'm determined to get these done. So heres the list....Let's see what I can do in 2017....The YEAR of the FINISHES!!

I thought my list of unfinished projects was long, but Deb, I think you've out done me. Good luck to both of us!

Northern Deb said...

Thanks....Yes we're gonna need it. Isn't it great to know someone just a little bit worse? Haha....I'm still looking for my person!

Deb... that is my yearly mantra as well. I haven't listed them all out, but I know I have at least 15 tops be quilted, and several others in various stages of progress from single blocks to nearly done.... then there is the problem of my fabric room is stuffed to the gills! No purchases for me, other than thread and batting for awhile!

Happy New Year to you and Al.... and did I see you are expecting another grandbaby this year?

Northern Deb said...

Oh Denise, it's so good to hear from you!! I've missed chatting with you.
I've spent quite a bit of time unpacking and sorting. Every so often another started project gets found. Al and I laid out the round robin that you did all the little 9 patches on. Thats (hopefully) my next quilt finish. We both stood back with amazement at it!
Nope, no little one in the oven, just the one grandson, but Jenn is hoping to get pregnant. Lisa is married but no plans for kids right now.
Hope things are going well for you! Happy New Year!
