My commitment for March is to work on long neglected projects – no new starts! Some are old enough that I don’t remember they exist, so I dug through the closet to find what I could list.
In the to-be-done pile:
Scrap-in-a-box quilt top – needs trimming, pinning and quilting
Floral diamonds quilt top- needs pinning and quilting
Purple floral quilt top – needs quilting
Scrappy stars quilt top – needs pinning and quilting
Strings blocks table runner – need more blocks
Red and white quilt blocks – need more blocks
Oceans quilt blocks – need to finish the message-in-a-bottle quilt block and make the rest
Snowflake quilt block – finish paper piecing and sew into pillow
Then there are various orphan blocks that need to be turned into something.
Those are just the quilting projects (that I found – more may be lurking). Knitting, embroidery, crochet and spinning will need their own long lists and finishing months. Wow. I’m really much more of a starter than a finisher! I knew this, but writing it all down has made me realize that I really need to become more of a finisher.
I am working on it. I finished the Night Sky quilt this month, and I’ve started quilting the purple floral. I finished my spring mini-quilt yesterday. And this morning I trimmed off the excessively wide border on the square-in-a-box quilt to make it more proportional.
This coming week I’m going to try to get over to my sister’s classroom so I can pin a couple of quilt tops. There just isn’t enough room or suitable floors around here which is part of why they sit neglected. I also like making blocks more than quilting which doesn’t help.
