Good girl Connie! I am glad you are in! I need support too!
I don’t want to count. Not sure I can beat your record, Jean, but I know I have at least 25 UFOs and WIPs and Swaps unfinished, so I am all in for a let’s get it done 2019 Resolution. Maybe we can host one a quarter and see what we can finish. One of my UFOs is an oversized queen that just needs binding and another is a QOV that is partially bound....then of course there are the two FatCat BOMs that need to be finished......yikes maybe I have more than 25....
The only way it can work is if we check in every few days with photo updates. We have to be each other’s accountability partners :)
I agree, Connie. We can try to make this fun.
Absolutely!! Thats def. In the plan!! Accountability and fun is key!! I may do prizes too. Will have to see. Its still in the thinking process. Lol.
United we sew.
Yes!! Thats a cool way to put it!!
I look forward to seeing what a FatCat quilt is...but I promise I won’t start one, lol.
I was pretty pleased that i wasn't that drawn to them for next year. Lolol.
Oh JEAN!!!!!! WOW WEEEEEE HUN. that is crazy. I have around 14 i think of swap blocks. I need to quilt several tops too.
Yes you do NEED the finish the swaps group!!! Lololol. But i think several of us do. I am determined to get some done in 2019. They bring no honor setting in drawers unfinished. I have visions of all our hard work setting in zip locks ay a garage sale for 5.00. Lol. I would rather fonish them up. And seriously, the hard part is over! Its just a matter of connecting the blocks now. That goes pretty fast.
Each time you will choose the blocks you wish to work on. It can be any of the swap blocks or even just blocks you have had forever. You will work on connecting them and show pictures of your progress. Then hopefully quilt them and show a finished product. I cant wait. I am looking forward to it.
Yes, indeed, lol. Well, there’s plenty to enjoy over the holidays, anticipated grandsons, and so on and then we can dig in. I have those same visions of ziplocks and while it may be impossible to get all of them done, I had better start.
Anything is better than no finishes! And they can be as simple or as complicated as the person wants. You might look at some of yours and see if any of them would blend into one quilt too. Maybe some are close enough??
