Now what?

Now that my Baskets Galore is a top .... what do I do next? Start a new project? As tempting as that is..... no, no, no. With all the talk going around blogland about finishing UFO's and challenges to help us along, I sat down and made an actual list. Gasp (oh yes, I gasped) .... I have 7 tops to be quilted and 31 projects started. So, guess what I'm going to be working on next.


Browsing my list, this project caught my eye. I found the container and started pinning the blocks on my design wall. These other blocks are just waiting to be pinned up. I still need to make some more sashings and corner stones, but good progress has already been made. Oh yes, time to get this project to the top stage.

So, now you know what my personal challenge will be for the next wee while.

Have a great day!

Wow, that's going to be another beautiful quilt. I'm cheering you on. I won't be making a list, did that awhile ago and found myself in the same boat as you.

This looks like a great project to finish. You're encouraging me to stay on task with UFOs.

Connie said...

UFOs....got 'em too. ;D

Vivian said...

That is a really pretty one! Definitely bring that one in for a landing.

Thank you for introducing me to this designer. I had not heard of her but one look at the patterns on her website and some of these are definitely going on my wishlist!

Joan said...

What a lovely design - I love the blocks and the applique

Dolores said...

Good for you. It's a lovely project to work on.

liz said...

Definitely deserves to be finished. I'm glad it's at the top of the list. Wonder what else you've got there.

Kim said...

31 UFOs - Gasp indeed! That's alotta UFOs. I have to wonder how this beauty ever became one in that number, it is a very pretty quilt. I am working with my stash to make quilts that I had not yet started, but purchased the pattern and materials to make them. No doubt there is more than one UFO in my closet. I tend to forget about them! So it's no shopping allowed and working to slim down the supplies already in house - that's been my personal challenge for nearly two years now - it's slow going, lol. :-D
