My Small Tumbler quilt is finished! It’s #10 of 10 to be bound and 10 were also quilted during this quilting/binding marathon. This is a UFO that I cut and kitted in GA at our Big Canoe condo in 2014. I didn’t assemble the top until 2016 and it sat for another 4 years waiting for quilting. One reason this one waited so long was I wasn’t sure if I would keep it or not but now I think it’s going to be donated. I’ll hang on to it a little while just to be sure I don’t change my mind. And those straight edges don’t bother me at all. I’m glad I decided to trim them even rather than fuss with binding the irregular edges this time.
It was hard staying focused but I’m in a good place with my goals as we head to Big Canoe. I’ve finished 7 UFO’s this year – goal is to finish 12 each year. I’ve started 12 new quilts and finished 15 – goal is to finish at least as many as I start to keep my total UFO number where it is or lower.
I know a lot of you sew for fun and don’t set goals like I do but for me, it keeps me focused on what I want to accomplish and with all the travel I typically do during normal times, and with having a place in Big Canoe again, I need to stay focused or nothing will get finished!
