I had 4 goals for December:
- Finish Groovy 2
- Finish Dog Gone Cute
- Finish the sun print veterans quilts
- Grout the backsplash mosaic
I am thrilled that I completed 3 of the 4! I know that Groovy will get done in January because I'm about to get started quilting it. The rest of the month was spent getting my Christmas postcards done.
I started tracking my projects in 2016 and had 23 UFO projects at that time. It was pretty overwhelming. I'm much happier with a list of only 12 and that I reduced the list by another 6 this year. I don't ever expect the list to be zero but I'd love to see it under 8. That's doable if I can control new starts.
Here's how I ended the year:
Starting UFO 18 (15 in 2018)
Finished YTD 15
Started YTD 9
Ending UFO 12
Veterans quilts made - 9
Veterans quilts quilted - 40
Fabric Postcards - 152
Pet Beds 12
Quilted for others - 4
The UFO list only includes quilts and mosaic. Veterans quilts, postcards, pet beds, placemats, etc are just bonus. It was a big year for bonus projects!
Here's what's left on my UFO list:
Second mosaic wall section - beaded curtain
Pleiades II symmetry quilt
Blue vintage flower applique - started June 2018
Loony Moony - started June 2018
1 Groovy quilt
Kaleidoscope Block of the Week (Jackie's Choice)
Postage Stamp Quilt (the oldest UFO)
Vintage Flower appliqué (top finished in May 2018)
Shibori dyeing series (need to decide if I'm doing anything with them)
Flower appliqué on green wall hanging (need setting plan)
Dark red screen printed fabric (in gold) for placemats
Red leaf prints for wall hanging
I'd love to say that I'm going to do all of these in 2020. It would only be 1 a month but I know that at least 4 of these are going to be intense quilting projects and I'm slow as molasses at custom quilting. But I can easily cut this list in half. I have 2 new projects planned already but I'll try to at least finish one before each start.
For January my goals are:
- quilt and bind Groovy 2
- make placemants with some flower applique blocks because they will never become a quilt
- quilt 4 - 6 veterans quilts
- load Jackie's Choice and start quilting
