    i am very much up to this challenge!
    when i finished quilting the last required holiday quilt i started cleaning the quilting room...machine is going in for service and in the mean time we are going to paint the room and do some rearranging...but i digress...
    while moving things out of the room i found 2 or 3 projects i had forgotten about...i have a christmas quilt i started working on the summer of 2009 with hopes of it being a gift for christmas...did not get it together...pulled it out a couple months ago...would really like it done this year...well...other than being hung where i see it everytime i walk by, it is no closer than it was in 2009...i would really like to get it done...i have another christmas quilt i started in 2004......i have so many!!!
    do we have to (claim- admit to) all of them?
    part of my problem is i get overwhelmed thinking about how many of them there are...i know one at a time...so, i will spend the rest of the week (trying) to get them *organized* and a count...
    no shopping-no starting ANYTHING NEW until the old is done and gone!!! :thumbup:

    I'm in. Due to surgery and chemo last year (I'm doing great!...thanks for asking :lol: ), I am behind on customer's orders and my own "stuff." This morning I actually started making a list of customer's stuff that they didn't need for Christmas and began to prioritize it.

    WooHoo...Yesterday I started working on my shop. I am so tired of not being able to find stuff...or it's just stacked around. I am organizing fabric in the fashion of AlaskaSue, and as I go through I am sorting in to size increments and colors. I am finding a whole bunch of smaller pieces of fabric I forgot I had because they were mixed in with bigger pieces.

    Also, one of the first things is get my machine serviced. It still runs fine, but the "scissors" no longer work and that is annoying.

    While, organizing some fabric I came across a shelf of some really nice books I forgot I had. I decided to go through the books and pick out 4 "learning process" quilts and actually read the pattern and make the quilt accordingly. I decided, "why buy these books if I'm not going to really use them?"

    Well, that seems to be a start!

    Why don't we meet back here at the end of January for an update!!

    I want to focus on some projects this year and not purchase.

    Here is my list.

    1. Star Struck (currently quilting)
    2. 4th of July (top)
    3. OBW (sandwhiched ready to quilt)
    4. Log Cabin (top)
    5. Blue block quilt (sandwhiched ready to quilt)
    6. Floral Quilt (blocks)
    7. Bargello (partly pieced)
    8. Pin Wheel (HST's done)
    9. Fall blocks (from swap)
    10. Butterfly blocks (leftover from other quilt)
    11. Warm Wishes (piecing project)
    12. OBW 2 (piecing project)
    13. Diagonal Strip quilt (only have fabric bought)
    14. String Quilt (piecing project)
    15. Breast Cancer blocks (from swap)

    Numbers 1, 14, 13, 3 are my plans for this year. My sister also requested a baby quilt that I think I will use number 6 for.

    Kyia
    Wow! Kyia you're already organized and know which ones are a priority! Kudos to you! I'm still looking for all of mine!
    Welcome on board!

    You want the list?

    WIP

    2 Orion star
    3 square in a square #1
    4 square in a square #2
    5 butterfly garden BOM original
    6 butterfly garden BOM #2
    7 all borders

    There are also several quilts that are ready to layer and quilt. That list is longer. I'll be happy just to work on the WIP.
    Another impressive list! Welcome Scissor Queen! Make sure you take pictures of the progress! If you need fabric that's ok. Most of us have waaaay too much and need a 'fabric diet' of sorts!
    Blessings,
    MaryAnna

    Getting things DONE is my goal for 2011 (also no buying...at least for a few months) :(

    SUGGESTION: The last time I organized my sewing area, I removed anything NOT sewing related (and gained a bit of space). Then I put all my WIP, UFO, and collections together on one shelving unit. This unit is BEFORE my new fabrics and magazines and books. I HAVE to see them before I start something new.

    I'M IN - will post list later this week

    Welcome JulieM! Sounds like you are off to a good start, and I'm sure you'll find more projects.


    Welcome michelehuston, we've got the rest of the week to count & figure out which one's first. I say tackle the one nearest to completion- for that instant gratification.

    Blessings,
    MaryAnna

    I'll get cracking on finding all of my wips & ufos and I'll post a 'before' picture along with my count, and my priority list. Let's all post our lists & count by January 1st, and a 'before' picture would be great as well.

    How does the last day (or last Friday night) of every month sound for an 'all night PJ party?' Or you can pick a better night, just let me know. we'll quilt away the night in comfort!

    Blessings to all,
    MaryAnna

    Welcome onboard jaciqltznok! Just pick your battles....line them up and count what you can. just as long as you've got at least 1 to start on in January. As you get going, keep digging until you find all the rest.
    Blessings,

    Welcome quiltinghere! And what an excellent idea....organizing a shelf and putting our wips & ufos right in our plain sight, for some that might just be the ticket to success! And others might still need the organization and 'lining' them all up in order in a closet, and as they finish one project, then grab the next in order. But I love your suggestion! In either even, organiztion is key...knowing what you have and lining up your priorities.
    Blessings,
    MaryAnna

    I can't find mine to count yet. I am starting to go through my house one room at a time, and get rid of anything I haven't used in a year or two. One person just doesn't need all of this stuff, and I know I will be a happier person when it is finished. In the process I will find everything and get it organized.

    I do know what I am starting with.

    1. Super Fast Pink Jelly Roll quilt for my Great Niece.

    2. Baby quilt, Single Irish Chain, Focal fabric that has Monkeys.

    I honestly have no idea where to start. baby quilt and quillows as they will b the easiest and fastest to do. After seeing some of the postings, I do not feel so bad about my huge list! I have every intention of sticking to this..just have to stay out of lqs!!
