Like most quilters I have tons of quilts that I have started but never finished (UFO). I either get excited about a new project and start it before I’ve finished the current one…..or I get sick of looking at the current project and need a break….who really knows why we do it….but I’ve got lots of UFOs. I’ve joined the 2013 Finish-A-Long (FAL) to help me tackle my growing mound of outstanding quilts. Basically, participants identify and photograph UFOs that you want to finish in the upcoming FAL quarter. The goal is the get each of those projects done and out of your sewing room. They have to be projects that you have already started not something new. You have to prepare your list of UFOs, blog about it and at the end of the quarter you will post links to your completed projects. I am hoping that this will be the boot-in-the-fanny that I need to get some of these projects off my to-do list. Here is a link to the 2013 FAL if you are interested.
Now I just need to identify the list for the first quarter. The 2011 Block-of-the-Month (BOM) quilt that I started almost 2 years ago will be at the top of my first list. The annual BOM quilt show is on January 14th so I really need to get my butt in gear to meet that deadline too.
