Star Maker

There have been UFO challenges galore, and I've mainly stayed out of them because even though I've been planning on finishing my UFOs for quite a while, I never quite do.

This year, however, I have a better plan. I have joined Finn's challenge. We choose how many quilts we will finish by New Year's Eve. That's a while away, so I can do it, right? I decided to choose a small manageable number to start, and hope to move that number up to 100%. I told her I would do two.

The first one will be the blue and white stars I am making with Dot. I've been making stars. It seems like a never-ending bunch of stars. I'm a star maker. I have been working on them a little bit each day and don't have a lot of progress to report on it, and someday I will even finish up those stars.

I'm not sure what the second quilt will be. It will be something that is closer to completion. Either a top that simply needs quilted, or a top that needs a border before it gets quilted. I have several to choose from in both those categories, and my hope is that after I am finished with the stars, I can do several of those finishes.

If you're even able to get one UFO done, or and above the number you add in a given year, you're ahead. Good for you to set a manageable goal and work to succeeding.

It was so good of Finn to get us working on this. Why is it so easy to start quilts but getting them over that finish line is something else? I guess it is like so many things. Keep us posted on your progress.

Oh,gee... you are doing really good with your UFO.
and this challenge sounds very good idea. Although, I have way too many UFO which I know I can join this challenge! *S*
