I am counting three “Finishes”, but did cheat a little. The last 2 weeks I have been looking over my UFO pile along with my pile of
current projects and thought I needed to kick some of these house guests out.
Some have been here for 3-4 years! A fellow crafter sent me an Email about
Project Linus having “National Make a Blanket Day”, Feb 18th. Great luck, the
local chapter was having a planning meeting Jan 12th. Several of the UFOs
were headed for this organization, they just remained in the flimsy stage, never
maturing to a completed quilt. Shopping for backs is not a priority. Yes, it was a
little selfish on my part to gather up some of the UFOs and attend the meeting,
but I went with 4 items, and 3 are out of my hands completely. Mission
accomplished, well not exactly. I came home with 2. See the math does not add up. Here are photos of my finished items, fun, easy, quick quilts.
It was a nice afternoon meeting the other quilters, picking and cutting backings
for my UFOs and other donated flimsies. My UFO that came home with me
that needs a border and they even had fabric for that.
No picture of the extra project I came home with that needs reconstruction and
borders. They are having another meeting in 2 weeks so maybe I can
a few more UFOs.
