In an ongoing attempt to make myself accountable for my UFQs and USQs (un-started quilts) I give you…..number 2:
PROJECT NAME: Circle Baby Quilt
DATE STARTED: 2002
ORIGINAL PURPOSE: I signed up for a class at a local quilt shop, my first class ever, to make this for *I think* a niece or nephew who is way past “baby quilt” stage at this point.
CURRENT STATE: It is a finished top, it just needs to be quilted. The crazy thing is, it’s been folded in a box, in just this state, for about five years now.
REASON FOR NOT FINISHING IT: Not sure, my Mom helped me finish the hand applique circles. I really like it, and not sure why it never got finished. This is what the photo in the book looks like finished (the book is Blessed Events):
PLAN FOR FINISHING IT: Make the quilt sandwich this weekend, and when I’m feeling up to being back at my machine…get that baby quilted!!!
How are you going about setting timeframes or prioritizing your projects? I have so much stuff to do (obviously non-quilt related) and I have issues becoming distracted with the next thing.
You go girl! …..I am with you…I can’t usually pinpoint anything that made me stop work on a quilt….just that it gets to a stage and I put it away….but am working my way thru them…..!! Slowly but surely….I wasn’t going to start anything new, but if I didn’t there wouldn’t be anything for my swap partner in the cupcake swap…..and we can’t be having that can we!!! LOL
