For me, there is a difference between a UFO and a WIP. A UFO - or UnFinished Object - is a project that I abandoned because I didn't love it and/or it had become too difficult/cumbersome to deal with. A WIP - Work in Progress - is a project that I am steadily working on, I am usually enjoying it, and I am more likely to attend to it from beginning to end without a lot of stalling.
These are my current WIP's:
My Little Apples string blocks:
I am getting frustrated with my inability to line up the corners of the red/pink strings. My last attempt at measuring and being very precise was horrible - my "eyeballing it" attempts have actually been better. If anyone has any suggestions/tips - please do tell! Here's one of the worst ones:
Now and then, I make a few selvedge blocks, 17 are completed so far:
I recently pulled this pile of fabrics:
and I got as far as making my own custom layer cake (about 140, ten inch squares). I plan to do a large version of the Krackle quilt.
Onto my remaining three UFO's:
This Mendocino clamshell quilt is very frustrating for me. I could've started a college fund by reselling these fabrics - but instead, I cut a bunch of them up and made a big mess of it by allowing each row of the design to spread out farther and farther. I have since seam-ripped the whole thing and would like to re-consider this debacle as a new project after I add a bunch of stash prints and start again:
My last two UFO's are hexagon projects. I have this quilt top, seen here. It just needs to be quilted and bound. And then I have several of these flower garden blocks - I have a patchwork-y plan in mind but it will take a while before I get to it:
It feels good to have dramatically reduced my UFO pile but I just wish they were all done. I will keep you updated on my progress.
Thanks for reading!
