I’ve been avoiding looking at my own WIP list on my sidebar for about three months because it horrifies me. I cant believe I’ve started all that stuff and not finished it. Some of it has been on there for a very long time. (That poor Dresden quilt has been lurking for about two years – and I started the hexie flower garden quilt in October 2011) If my sewing life was school I’d be getting A’s for the “starting projects “ part and “incompletes” for everything else.
So I hereby decree July to be a finishing month. I’m over staring at the stuff on my WIP list . I will not allow myself to be distracted or tempted by the quilting fairies into starting any new projects until some of this stuff is finished !
Here are my goals for this month and yes I know I said I wasnt doing goals anymore but I feel like I have to put this out there in order to motivate some finishes.
The binding is machined on to Superheroes 2 I just need to spend some time sewing it down to the back. Started that last night and got sick of it after about 8 inches because my cotton was misbehaving. Doesn’t bode well for an eventual finish does it ?
The recycled shirt quilt is currently still in pieces. Im going to finish that this month too. That’s kind of essential because it’s a present for my brother in law and his birthday is on the 26th.
I started cutting the fabric for the triangle quilt a few months back and then felt guilty working on it when I had so many other things languishing. The pieces have been stuffed in a box ever since. I’ve decided to finish that too. I mean really, how hard can it be to sew 400 triangles into a quilt top?
The poor Irish chain quilt has been neglected too... Im hoping to finish that top this month too which will be interesting because so far I only have 5 blocks done out of the 70 or so that I need. And everything I need to do something to this quilt is hiding somewhere in my sewing room unable to be found ...Im hoping the quilting fairies have taken it away to finish it but I fear that is unlikely.
