I’m not a big believer in making New Year’s Resolutions, heck . . I don’t have to make them. The same ones I’ve had for the last 20 years are still good because I never stick with them . . . lose weight, exercise more, get more organized, keep the house cleaner . . same old stuff. But I do think the end of one year/the beginning of another is a time to evaluation my situation and see where I can improve and kinda make some guidelines. One thing I’d like to do is finish UFO’s and stop starting projects before I finish old ones. I wish I could say that I will finish each UFO as I find it, not stick anything back in a bag or box but finish it. But, I know I won’t do that. I’m not ready to give the UFO’s away, or write them off but I’m also not willing to spend a lot of time on some of them. I decided to start going through the UFO’s with a real view towards finishing them. The first thing I came to was 14 of these blocks:
I vaguely remember using a bunch of these blocks in a quilt. Maybe I was going to make it bigger and then changed my mind. I didn’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. If I end up remembering later what they ere supposed to be for, I can always make them again . . they’re just scrappy. Here’s the plan I came up with:
This is how far I got on Sunday.
Depending on how much sewing time I get today, I could have this top finished by tonight. Just the top . . not the whole quilt, but it feels real good to be back working on projects like this. I think it will make a great QOV, don’t you?
