UFO - UnFinished Object .... We quilters own them and love them ... hey we must.. we have alot!
This year I'm following American Patchwork & Quilting's UFO challenge to finish one a month.... let me tell you how I'm doing.. and then you tell me how it's going for you!
The idea was to create a list of 12, number them, then as the random number are given out, you do that number in that month. It's a great idea.... and works so well...
... except for me ...
I can't seem to do the number, so I'm working on what I'm motivated to work on instead.. This has not changed for me.. But the motivator is that each month there is a reminder....
This is how my UFO logic has gone for selecting a project .. I'm sure YOU don't think like this...
I decide that all my 'most logical' UFOs to finish would go in my Moda Laundry Basket which is adorable, it rolls, and I made it an darling insert.. I may talk to it.. I love it so much!
Did you notice I said 'Most Logical'....
I am a computer nerd and my whole life has been logical thinking.. so of course to get a project completed I pick ones almost done... makes sense right?
I decided to switch gears and find all the ones that needed binding..
Here are 4.. PLUS 5 MORE that come ahead of this for work quilts.
I do almost ALL my binding by machine or I'd never finish anything.
And I pulled all the ones I REALLY want to finish and put them in my Koala Studios newly named 'UFO DRAWER' .. that way I feel it's more fancy to have them in my studio and my 'logic' is that will encourage me to work on them.
The jury is still debating on how this will play out, but the drawers are amazing!
The Darling case with my Splendid sampler block on the front is a pattern you make. All the details about it at THIS ARTICLE .. they are so cool to do!
I selected one the other day and got it DONE! I did a Facebook LIVE too
AND BINDING DONE! With a straight stitch on this time
Only thing left is to stitch the hanging sleeve!
