What were your quilting resolutions this year? You probably hoped to (1) organize your stash, (2) finish your UFOs, and (3) clean up your sewing space once and for all. Of course, one way to eliminate clutter and organize your stash is to list your UFOs (Un Finished Objects), your WIGS (Works In Grocery Sacks), your WISPs (Works In Slow Progress), or whatever else you want to call them. You will be surprised how just listing these projects can motivate you!
Make a list of your UFOs, keep a copy for yourself and give a copy* to me. Then, get to work! When you finish your project, check it off in our UFO notebook and put your name in the jar for a quarterly prize drawing. Next, share your quilt with the guild during show and tell. How easy is that? You can list neo-natal quilts, dialysis quilts, entries in the Quilt Show, Challenge quilts, class projects, quilts for the small quilt auction, the list is endless! It’s a fun way to finish some projects and share them with your friends in the guild.
It’s hard to believe that five years have passed since we started our UFO project! How many items have you checked off your list? Just know that it's never too late to start.
*or, send your UFO list to: PO Box 6464, Carmel, CA 93921.
