What to do... what to do

OK, so yesterday I finished someone’s quilt. And I am very pleased with how it turned out and I can’t wait to give it to her. But now which project to work on…. I have so many I just can’t decide, LOL!

I have a whole list of UFOs, but I just don’t feel like working on any of them. Two of them are just blocks. The school house quilt just doesn’t appeal to me any more, even though the blocks are done and I have the fabrics for assembly, I just can’t get into it anymore. And I’ve already made one 3D Log Cabin and gave it to my son… these are the left over blocks from that which I’ve saved to make myself one for my collection, but again, just can’t get into it.

My 2007 Retreat project is almost finished being put together. I worked on it at the Spring Retreat last year, and haven’t touched it since… Same with the Tea Garden Bullseye, I worked on that at the last Spring Retreat and haven’t touched it since. Maybe I will take that with me to work on at this retreat. That one I would like to see finished, I think.

My Purple Kitties and Friends Quilt is partially machine quilted, and I was finishing the kitty features by hand myself, but the hand work hurts, and I don’t like what I’ve done, and can’t even begin to think about ripping it out and starting over and … it’s going to stay a UFO a little longer I think.

I have 19 small quilts and/or wall hangings that I plan to quilt myself, if the mood ever strikes me. And right now I have two quilts ready to go to a long armer, but money is tight so they have to wait.

And that leaves 19 other quilts on the list, all in different stages, and I just don’t want to work on any of them….

I’ve cut strips for three new projects to take to this years Spring Retreat, and if I can find where I’ve stashed them, I will take the Tea Garden Bullseye and 2007 Retreat project

Just finding them will keep me occupied for a little while…

Here are two of my UFOs, #4 and #6


  1. Your 2 featured UFO's are gorgeous. The flower one is very timely as it's now spring!

  2. The kitty quilt is great use of blocks. I had to really look at it to see how you pieced it. I assume you did the two left columns as rows first, then sewed them together. You did the last column as a column and then sewed it onto the other section? Very clever! B.
