    Wow! You're productive! Start sorting and lining them up, first ones should be the ones that are closest to being done.

    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.
    Sadiemae, that sounds wonderful! And what a great idea to go ahead and declutter your whole house! I've been doing that as well, and wow what a difference it makes. You'll be better and more energized once that's done, and your home will look bigger! Your projects are perfect to start off with, and yes you'll find more as you clear out 'stuff'.
    Blessings,

    Thats what I have found so far...think I will stop looking!! lol
    Yes, michelehuston...you've got a list! Before there's order, there's always a bigger mess, but it will get better. I'd tackle those quillows and baby quilt first, then the rest. If you want to stop at 15, that's fine. You can look for more once these are done, if that suits you.

    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

    Fabric Diet - I like that term. I am off today and as soon as the house warms up (it's nippy in CA today) and I can pull myself away from the QB I WILL start on some UFOs. The pile is still impressive and I have two Robins looming.

    On the other hand - my new favorite LQS is going out og business and they are at 50% on everything.....heavy sigh.

    Hey Wip & UFO gang,

    Another member of the board also recommended a yahoo group called stashbusters, they've got a Wip/Whim/Pigs and a separate UFO challenge categories. They 'charge' a fee of 2 FQ's & 50 cents (for mail) for the UFO group and I think 7, 2.5" strips of fabric & mail costs for the Wip group. At the end of the year a 'winner' will receive the FQ's in UFO group & all the 2.5" strips from the Wips group.....sort of an incentive to finish. They too offer support, creative challenges, etc.

    If you'd like to join that group as well as this one, that would be great.

    In any case, on this thread we'll have creative 'challenges' along the way to finish up our projects.


    Hugs to all!
    MaryAnna

    Hey MadQuilter! Join in our fun....yes, I know a 'fabric diet' sounds harsh, but it's not, sometimes we do have to get control of things in our lives. If you have opportunity to find fabric at great prices, then it's a good time to review your projects and if you need fabric to complete them, well purchase the fabric you need. And that's the trick, purchasing what you need as opposed to buying just to be buying.
    I know of several of my wips & whims that I will have to buy some more fabric to complete as I don't always buy my backing or binding fabric when I buy my project fabric. But I'll try shopping my stash first.

    Blessings,
    MaryAnna

    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,

    Ok WIP & UFO gang..... it's the 31st! By today you should have found your projects, or at least a few to get started on tomorrow. The 1st is our start date and if you're over booked on that day, try to do 15 mins to a half hour of sewing/quilting on a project sometime on the 1st.

    I work 2 jobs, so I need to work in some time everyday in order to get things done. We'll have some 'quilt retreat' weekends and/or PJ parties (all night sewing sessions) planned. So that should help out. Let us all know if you've got a special night to devote to projects and have your own PJ party....we might be able to join in!

    Let's check in with each other weekly at least to see how we're doing, and don't forget to post pictures!

    We can do this! Even me with 33 projects.

    Blessings,
    MaryAnna

    I can't make a list, but I have a general idea of where they all are ... fortunately, for the most part, I keep unfinished things close to me. The PJ parties ought to be interesting. I will be watching to see whether I can participate or not, but I know I am a good cheerleader
