“How many quilting projects do you have on the go at once?” That was a question asked recently on “Quilting Down Under”, an internet quilting group. Members replied with all sorts of answers, some with only three or four, and others admitting to a dozen. One quilter commented that she was too much of a control freak to ever have more than two at once! Perhaps I’ll have a quick check around my sewing area and see what I’ve got on the go. And this is what I found.Burgundy and cream quilt for my niece – all complete except for the label.
Under the Sea stitchery blocks – ongoing take-along project.
12 Days of Redwork stitched hearts – stitcheries completed and awaiting 9 patch blocks to complete quilt.
Stitchery Angel cot quilt – pinned up ready for quilting.
Healing Heart blocks received from SCQ internet group several years ago when I was undergoing cancer treatment – started stitching sashing between blocks.Roll, roll, cotton boll mystery quilt – stalled pending other projects deemed more urgent.
Signature quilt from 2008 UK trip – same reason as above.
Oh dear, look what I found in the basket, a pieced table topper I started, plus another Christmas wall-hanging, both half done. I’m not even going to see what else there is in the basket.
Plus there is one single and one double bed quilt which I had previously started machine quilting (then stopped for whatever reason) lurking on my quilt rack. And most importantly, a memory quilt, and a healing heart quilt that I am hurriedly working on right at the moment to give to friends in their time of need.
But…………I’m not telling how many other projects I have stashed away in the spare room in various bags and boxes. Some time ago my pen-friend Carol from South Dakota wrote and told me she had counted up 81 UFOs! I’m not counting mine because I really don’t want to know, but it can’t be anything like 81, surely? Perish the thought!
