Honestly, this week Baby C shared his cold with me, so very little machine sewing was accomplished. I did manage a bit of progress on my baby quilt, however!
I was able to sew the strips of together.
Next, they'll be cut up into squares and sewn into rows!
to Finishing Up UFOs!
My son-in-law asked my daughter a great question:
"Why do you and your mom have so many projects going? Why don't you finish one before starting another?"
Ahhh....the innocence of non-crafters. :)
Just to prove I don't have that many UFOs, I inventoried them.....Here are the results.....yeah...not pretty. There are so many inspiring ideas, tutorials, patterns and so much beautiful fabric, it's easy to have 45, 50, or more UFO's. However, my storage space is smallish, so I decided to finish up those projects so I'd have more space for....I don't know....fabric!
I'm finding I accomplish so much more if I break up my quilts into daily goals. For example:
Day 1: Pick pattern and fabric
Day 2: Cut out my fabric pieces
Day 3: Sew my squares (or rows in this case)
Day 4: Finish up sewing my squares (or rows in this case)
Day 5: Join my rows.
Day 6: Finish joining my rows.
Day 7: Sew my borders.
Day 8: Make the backing, binding and label and prepare the batting.
Take good care, my friends!
