Like many people, I'm much better at starting a project than finishing it. As part of my recent organizing efforts, I have tidied up my blog, including an updated WIP page. This is only a fraction of my UFO's. It is supposed to be the ones I am committed on working on this year. Some have been on the page for 6 years. One of the things that I teach in my day job is goal setting. Including "put it in writing" and being accountable to someone. So here you go.
If I remember correctly, I have the 2 main people sections done. The new design wall will make a big difference on some of the connecting sections. It seems like I ran out of the fusible I was gridding this out on and need to change to just regular piecing.
This is the watercolor by Terrece Beasley. I have most of the big sections of this done, but it was a project that spread all over the house so it's been hard to finish.
But my machine quilting has improved to the point that I am now excited to quilt this one.
Deserves to be hand quilted. I splurged on a wool batting this fall and think this is where to use it. And I decided on a recipient so it moves up the priority list. Just need to buy a backing.
Because I have a black batting I bought for this that is taking up a lot of space.
And I finally have the quilting skills to make this look pretty amazing.
Of the 80 squares I needed, these are the 9 that are finished. She's now 86. I may need to reconsider the concept and make it a highlight reel rather than a square to represent each year of her life.
I'm also determined to do more clothes sewing. But I say that every year too.
Addendum: I was invited by Archie the Wonder Dog to join a finish-along...so I will.
