Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
This year's New Years Resolution was to finish 120 UFOs of my over 130 then stopped counting projects. It has been an uphill battle. Some months it seems to fly by and I amke the 10 set for each month but other times I miss the mark and have to make it up the next month. This is one of those months that I am having to make up 4 more on top of the 10 I expect to do.
If you would like to see the finishes thus far, you may look in my photos. This all started when my daughter helped me clean up my sewing/l;ongarm studio in the garage. She is quite the organizer. In doing so, she started writing down a list of my projects that needed to be done, when she hit 130, she proceeded to tell me I have a problem. I did never realized it was a problem having all these wonderful projects to work on. I was just making quilts. That being said, I acknowledged her deduction and proceeded to start finishing some of them up. Well, once you get a nice longarm you can finish up qilts that need quilted, and I am sure none of you have these right? Well, that was the first couple months worth of work, just quilting and breaking in the new longarm anyway. Then it was a matter of just assembling tops to get them done. I found that I do have a couple of friends that are dear to me and volunteered to assemble tops for quilting. Well, I can do that. So now I have theirs to quilt and my tops get done. This has worked well for me to get approximately 9 quilts done, and then the binding, oh my did I have a stack of binding to get done. Yep, trade quilting for binding, that has helped but if you want to enter a show, it has to be the work of one person, you to win the prize money. Well, I am now educated to the fullest on doing bindings and it DOES make a difference on your quilts.
