Welcome to the Quilting Board!
"I don't buy vintage quilts. By the time I finish the quilts I've started they've already become antiques." ~ Mark Lipinski

I finished 19 projects last year, according to my latest count (but I think some are missing). Only 3 of those were previous UFOs and the rest were new starts last year. In addition, I added 9 quilt tops to my pile of UFOs. I have no idea how many are still hiding in the closet from earlier years - at least 4 off the top of my head. And in the past 2 days, I've added 3 more tops to the list. So, lots of finishing to get done this year.
I think what I need is a moratium on new projects, so I can get some done. When I bought my longarm 1.5 years ago, I had a stack of 7 quilts by the time it arrived (prior to that, I didn't do UFOs - eveything was done before I started another). I told myself I'd get one off the list, for every one on. Apparently that didn't work too well, since I added 9 this year and only pulled 3 off the old pile.
I need a board to motivate me to start a project!! I go out and shop and a project starts to form in my mind. I buy fabric and that's it!! I really must start some projects this year
Count me in! Currently I have three UFO's . One baby play mat quilt, one sampler lap quilt, and a wall hanging. My goal is to finish them in that order. This thread is great motivation.
Is it ok to hang out and quietly take everyone's work in? I can't promise that I can finish one UFO a month, but I think I can get encouragement if y'all will let me just watch from the bleachers!
By the way, what a beautiful kitty! I'm not normally a cat person, but wow, what a beauty!!
Hope you all have a great week!
Ok, so I've reread both threads, and I get it now, I think. After taking a quick look in my sewing room, I have ten UFOs to start with. I've decided to start with an embroidered Flower of the month BOM that I just loved doing. I have 6 small bees to do before i can finish it off with machine quilting. I wish I could post pictures, but that will come. A Simple Life, I just love your quilt and your kitty. And Fraew, what a neat signature quilt! Happy quilting to all, on this snowy New England day!
I'm in. Tons of UFOs, WIPs and PIGs. Right now I have a WIP - a scrappy for my sofa. Pix when my husband comes home with my camera.
Feel the fear and do it anyway!
