I am not alone, of this I am certain. A recent email discussed the problem and how we can address it. The National Quilters Circle Group has an interesting article about just this subject. I know, beyond a doubt, that I will always have UFO's but I want to join in the beginning of the year movements that deal with this quilters dilemma. So that is my plan, in 2018 I will focus on 6 UFO's. I cannot do it now, I am still working on Fall and Christmas. Have you started making plans for 2018 yet? I call that optimistic.
These already quilted panels are waiting patiently for assembly....in their own little box. I am sure I heard some rumbling coming from there....."what's going on?" "we are supposed to be in he motor home and on our way!" "where is she???"
I did manage to get these blocks cut, in fact I slipped and sliced one up. The rest went into their box too because the plan was for 12 blocks, not 11. A new plan is required.
For the week ahead:
- one last row of embroidered stitches on the candle mat, apply binding, finish binding
- make scrap binding for "stackers" quilt that I have named Rosita. I will explain that soon. Attach and finish binding on that one.
- Cut and dry the garden herbs. No small feat I might add. As in the past I will make my Thanksgiving baskets for friends and family. These include an assortment of my organically grown dried herbs.
- Layer and load one of the finished quilt tops onto the Coronet. Need to hit the quilt store for some batting.
