I was at my local quilt group this afternoon and telling them about my UFOs….. They were very impressed! Then of course they asked me how I was planning on finishing them.. Was I going to start with the ones that were nearly finished so that I could get the list down quickly? Or was I going to tackle it by type, like flimsies? Or was I going to pick one and finish it, and pick another and finish that…
Well, I can tell you right away that I don’t pick one and work on it until it is done and then pick another one… I am just not that type of person. I mean, if I was, I wouldn’t have UFOs to start with, right?!
I prefer to work on more than one at a time. This way I don’t bored. Like the ones I mentioned in Day 11 – Early Show and Tell, I like to choose a variety, and then work on them a bit at a time. This may seem like a strange way to tackle them, but it seems to work best for me.
Choosing which UFO to work on can be as simple as picking one that has a time frame in which it needs to be done, e.g. a birthday quilt or gift for someone. (It was probably for that person’s birthday last year, but oh well…!) It could also be one that you really love and want to get done first.
Over the next few days I will share the two main ways I use to choose which UFOs to work on. They seem to work best at keeping me focused and on track, and helping me to actually get them done.
How do you choose which UFOs to work on first?
