Since I got my new Studio, I have been sorting and organizing all my stuff that has been in boxes or storage since I got back from Arabia. Sadly I have a lot of UFOs in amongst all that stuff! On a positive note, however, I actually got excited finding most of them and I am keen to get them done!
My UFOs range between about 15 tops that are ready to quilt, to quilts that I only made a block or two of….. and then somehow got distracted…. Probably with a new project or moving house!
As I sorted through everything, I think I have just about found all my UFOs…. My first tally was….
Ahem…. 148… which I thought was quite impressive, right? But then I found some more…. so the magic number (until I find some more hidden away) is…
Wow…. that is a lot of quilting UFOs 🙂
So what have I classed as UFOs as opposed to WIPs, WISPs, or PHDs?
Tops that I have finished and set aside to quilt on Emmie G, but due to having had her in storage haven’t quite gotten there.
2. Forgotten Projects
Quilts, table runners, and wall hangings that I have started, then set aside for whatever reason to finish another day. I may have needed to buy fabric for it, or some other necessary item, or I got sick of it… or.. Or.. You get the picture.
3. Class Samples and Market Items
Because I teach classes and had a shop, I have quite a lot of samples that I started but didn’t finish the actual quilting. I also have lots of smaller items. like quilted table runners and bags, that I started to make for sale and haven’t finished yet. When I make items for my shop or for markets I tend to make about 5 or 6 at the same time because I like to sew production line. Which results in lots of unfinished items.
I talked to Alice and asked her if I had to include these in my UFO list? And she said I did. So there you go. Alice is my quilting conscience. So I am being a good girl and have included them 🙂
So, 176 Quilting UFOs… can you beat that or am I really the Queen of UFOs?!
