Good Morning Quilters!
The new quilting year has started well for me. As I usually do, I took a look around at the projects I hope to work on in the future. The list is long, but after reading the internet definition of a UFO (Un-Finished Object), I decided, I don’t have any. You see, the internet defines a quilter’s UFO as “something you started, but haven’t worked on in over a year”. I reasoned that if this definition is true (and it must be true because I read it on the internet) then I can change my perspective.
With a brand new year ahead of me, I could eliminate all of my UFOs. Because, when I work on every one of them in 2022, they will change status and be WIPs! This is a much nicer definition for them, and it will provide us much variety every Monday as I give updates We all know I need variety.
The box of plaid fabrics occupied my quilt room this week. I sorted and cut plaid fabrics and now have three future quilts planned from this box.
The first is a square block surrounded by smaller squares.
This future quilt will have large blocks finishing at 16” square (center 8” square surrounded by 2” squares.). All squares are cut, and four blocks assembled. The remaining block parts are separated into zip lock baggies, 49 pieces per bag, for the next time I work on it.
The second one is made of very large hsts, and the quilt top is planned out and blocks made. The blocks are in baggies by rows, ready to assemble into a quilt top. Here it is lying on the floor for a picture before being bagged up.
The hsts will finish at 9” square, so the quilt top will be 72” square.
The third future quilt is just a box full of cut squares, which will finish at 6” by 6”.
This quilt is planned to be very simple, just sewing these blocks together. It is a project for one of those days when my brain in not ready for anything complicated.
So my week was spent taming the overflowing box of plaid fabrics. What was your week like? Please join our Design Wall Monday Linky Party, and show us.
