And I finished quilting my Happy Flower Garden Quilt! I’m waiting for the binding fabric to arrive in the mail, because I accidently used it for a different quilt. While I wait I think I will baste start working on the next quilt on my list!

This past week, I decided to go with scrappy binding for my Cloudy Day Quilt Sampler! And I’m so happy I did! I’m loving how it is looking so far. I made my binding on Monday, sewed it to the front of the quilt Tuesday and then started hand sewing the binding to the back of the quilt on Thursday. I’m hoping to have this finished soon!

I also sewed the binding onto my stack of pot holders, next I need I need to finish sewing the loops. Then I can hand stitch the binding to the backs.

How is the 2019 Finish Those UFQs going for you?

I set the goal of working on my UFQs for 1 hour a week! I started out the week working on some pot holders, because starting new projects is so much fun! A customer had requested some pot holders in the colors Eggplant, Pumpkin and Cream. I found this gorgeous Autumn Vibes fabric designed by Maureen Cracknell for Art Gallery Fabric.

It was Wednesday and realized I still had not worked on my UFQs yet! So first thing Thursday, well after I had some coffee. I pulled out my Cloudy Day Quilt Sampler! I made the top when I hosted the free quilt along in my Happy Cloud Creations Quilt Along Group in end of 2018. I had finished almost half of the quilting and set the quilt aside to work on other projects.

So I decided it was time to finish this quilt!! I quilted it for about 1 hour before the kids woke up. Now I have less than 1/3 of the quilt left to quilt! I’m so excited to finish this quilt!

Seeing others in the group finishing quilts really has motivated me to work on mine too! I hope it will motivate you too!

Join me today at 1pm PST in my Facebook Group for a LIVE Chat to talk about what you are working on and what your goals are for next week!

Happy Quilting!

Finish Those UFQs!!

Most quilters love cutting into new projects, so they end up with a big pile of UFQ’s! Most people refer to them as UFO (Unfinished Objects), but I’m trying to focus on my UFQ’s, Unfinished Quilts!  I have a bigger pile than I would like. Some people have 2 unfinished quilts and some people have 50 unfinished quilts!

So, I’ve decided this November and December I’m going to try to make my pile smaller! I’ve created a PDF where you can list 15 of your Unfinished Quilts, check off which stages you have completed. If you have more than 15 UFQ’s, print off as many sheets as you need.

DOWNLOAD The FREE Project tracker:Finish Those UFOs

I’m hoping this will keep me more organized and help me visualize what I can finish before the end of this year. It would be awesome to start 2020 with no UFQ’s, but I don’t think that is physically possible. I have 6 unfinished quilts and 2 New ones I know I work on before the end of the year. So I’m hoping to finish at least 3 of the UFQ’s and work on my 2 new ones!

To accomplish my goal, I plan to spend at least 1 hour each week on my UFQ’s. This way I can still work on new projects, but I’m still chipping away at those unfinished beauties!

You can choose to work 10 minutes a day, 1 hour a week, 5 hours a week. It’s up to you!!

JOIN ME!! From November 1st to December 31st
