As I’ve confessed before, I have many many UFOs.
I also keep taking on new BOMs, Quilt-Alongs, guild challenges, and anything else that crops up that I think will be fun.
I usually start out all motivated, and as soon as the next project comes along, enthusiasm for the first one wanes while I concentrate on the new one, then the next one comes along, and so on and so on, until I have the situation I have now . . . too many UFOs.
No, I didn’t count them. And I’m not going to, so don’t ask!
But I have made a new goal for this year . . .
I’m calling it The 350 Blocks Project.
With what’s left of this year, I intend . . .
to make one quilt block a day.
I’m going to choose from all my UFOs, and just pick one block to make each day that will get me further towards done. Any block from any UFO, as long as I make one each day.
It might be one block of my Farmer’s Wife Sampler quilt. It could simply be a 9-Patch for my Wild Nine-Patch quilt. It could be a hand-pieced Grandmother’s Flower Garden block. I love variety, so I’ll be choosing from a variety to keep my interest level up throughout this project.
Surely, after making a total of 350 blocks, at least one UFO will get finished, wouldn’t you think?
AND . . .
I’m inviting you to join me.
Are you up for the challenge?
Would you like to make one quilt block a day toward finishing up your UFOs?
If so, just jump on in.
I’ve created a Flickr Group for The 350 Blocks Project, so you can join the group and post photos of your finished blocks. I’m planning to post mine once a week on Sundays, as well as write occasional blog posts about them.
I’d love to know if you’re playing along. Please leave me a comment and let me know.
And if you want the button for your own blog, just steal it from the sidebar there, and link back to this post.
Good luck to us all!
