Judy L has been discussing UFO’s on her blog. Thanks a lot, Judy…you guilted me into pulling this old UFO back out 😉 I started this in either 1998 or 1999. I sewed up a storm on it, until…..I got to the part of adding all those last logs that will make the stars when the blocks are sewn together. I do NOT like sewing those. I really want to finish this quilt. It is intended for my bed. I am trying to figure out a system to get it done, that won’t seem overwhelming to me. I have 77 more blocks that need the last logs added. Finish a block a day…a block every other day…If I did one every day, I would have the blocks all finished in just over two months. Somehow, I don’t see a block a day, every day, happening. Maybe you guys can hold me accountable on this project. Like, if I haven’t given a blocks done update in awhile, scold me for not working on it! 🙂
I really don’t have too many UFO’s. I can think of three off the top of my head. What I mostly have, and I really don’t want to know how many there are, are WOBs. What are WOBs? This is a term I have made up for all my quilts that are Waiting On Bindings. I’m awful about getting the quilting done, then off to another project. Unless it’s a quilt I’m getting paid for, then I seem to get right on that binding, but my own just lay around, bindingless. I am even using one on my bed right now :-0 How awful is that? And it’s not the first one I’ve used that way. And months ago, I made my son a cute lap quilt with golf fabric. Guess what it is still lacking?
I can think of 4 PIGS that I have, that I need to start on. Well 5, actually, if you take into consideration that one of those PIGS will actually make 2 lap quilts. One for DH & one for me.
I have two waiting on quilting, one personal, one customer. The customer top is waiting only because I had to order the batting for it, and it hasn’t arrived yet.
I did make the binding for Mom’s quilt today, and hope to get it stitched to the front of the quilt this weekend. I have my cousin’s commissioned king quilt to start on….
Oh dear, and here I am piddling away the minutes on this blog. Guess I better get off of here! Yea, thanks a lot, Judy!
