I hope to see many of your own answers to my challenge. But for now here are mine:
1. I have 2 slide shows, one to show off my completed projects and second one to prove I do make large quilt tops – – just don’t like the quilting part.
First slide show is 27 completed projects in 2007 – meaning they are done with binding and 60% of them were given to someone else.
Second slide show is to show off I do make tops, but don’t like the quilting part – so, I end up with many completed tops. One of my goals this year is to get them all quilted. Keep in mind, I do have several other tops from before 2007 that also need to be quilted.
2. My UFO list is still long – I blame working at a quilting shop. I don’t count completed tops as UFO’s, because I plan to send them out to be quilted. I hope to cut this list down to 15 UFO’s within the next month, right now my list is well over 50.
~ 16 tops to be quilted
~ Sunflower Quilt for my bed – still working on the “name”
~ Tara’s Baby Quilt
~ Dear Jane – ongoing project, figuring another 2 years to fully complete-hoping to complete at least the blocks this year
~ Circled by Pirates – for me
~ The Dread Pirate Roberts Quilt – for my son
~ Stars Around the Garden
~ Beachy-Tiki Quilt
~ Quilt Pink Tops – probably 3 before February, so shop can quilt and donate
~ Christmas Presents Quilt
~ Yellow Brick Road Christmas
~ Coffee Cups
~ Batik Block Kit
…..need to finish going through my UFO excel spreadsheet and update
3. My 2008 Goals:
~ officially have a sewing studio set up
~ get quilted my tops previously done before 2008 – 16 total
~ keep a month goal list and accomplish at least 70% of it
~ visit 2 quilt shows
