Pat Sloan UFO challenge pile 1

Hi !

Quilters tell me this all the time, I have so many Unfinished projects (UFO in quilt talk)! What do I do, i just want to start new things!

We bribe ourselves to finish something, we hide them in boxes under the bed in the other room, we look at them, feel overwhelmed, then put them back.

The one thing that really stress out a quilter is a UFO. And if they start to pile up, it's really not much fun to have them hanging over our heads.

Notice I said 'our heads'.

Since I run a business, i have have accumulated a LOT of UFOs. I start things and never get back to finish them. I'm a pretty normal everyday quilter.

I also have plans on how to get rid of them. How to think about if they are worth doing. How to decide which I'll spend my time on.

It's been awhile since I've done a UFO Busting series. The truth is, I need to do it for my own as much as to share with you!

I'd like to get your input. So I wrote a quick article where you can tell me what you think ..RIGHT HERE

The deal of the week is the Spelling Bee Book on sale!

I've had a love affair with the alphabet forever! My favorite childhood books were alphabet books. The new Spelling Bee book is super fun. It's spiral bound too, which makes it so nice! The letters come in 2 sizes and there are other blocks.

Right now I'm not sure WHERE I'm going with this. A whole quilt for... mmmm... a great niece? for a Great nephew... for .. me?

I have an idea I posted and would love to hear what you think.. and you can see All my Spelling Bee posts

TIP - Auditioning Setting fabrics for your Grandma's Kitchen

Now that you have the layout you can tie all the blocks together with the sashings and additional setting blocks. This is how I work
* Put the blocks on the design wall
* Look at your color balance. if blocks need moved for color, do that. They don't need to be in the same order as mine
* lay fabric in the position where it will go to 'audition' it.
* Visit my online group photo pagefor people sharing their rows, they look fantastic!



SAVE The DATE- On Nov 4 I'll be at the Virginia Quilt Museum with my quilt exhibit all day. I hope you'll join me!
