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!!
