When I started tracking my UFO projects several years ago I had over 30. I feel like I've made good progress in clearing many of them out but also have changed my habits a bit and are a little more thoughtful about starting new things. I don't really join quilt alongs or challenges anymore. I may get back to that but, for now, I want to spend my time on my projects.
Now I'm really itching to start a new project or three but before I start new projects make myself go through the unfinished list to see if there's something that I should tackle first before I start something else. I don't think Kathie Lee Gifford and her TACKL app can help with this.
I found this quilt top on my list. It's made with the Accuquilt Go! small tumblers and when I made this I had big plans to raw edge applique giant sunflowers on it. It was going to be for one of the twin beds in the guest house. But it's not really big enough and I lost interest in making more tumblers and completely lost interest in the idea of giant raw edge applique. I pulled it out and started thinking about what I can do with it. Check in later this week to see how I'm taking another UFO off my list.
The fish mosaic can now proceed again because I found a local tile distributor that could get another sheet for me! This tile was stupid expensive, including $20 for shipping, but it was worth it to be able to finish it with the dots.
My goals for July are:
- finish both mosaic walls
- one EQ lesson
- make something with the blue quilt
- start something new!
