Many of you have embarked on an ambitious endeavor to complete 17 UFO’s for 2017 hosted by Pomegranate andChintz. I gave this one a lot of thought, but decided I’d have a lot more fun watching all my Blogging friends feel good about their accomplishments. I am much too nice a person to steal anyone’s glory!
Many of my Blogging friends have posted this week about all the quilts they made in 2016. I thought about this one too, but decided that
I was way too lazy it would take away too
much of my quilting time to go back and grab photos of what I finished last
year. So, I invite you to scroll through my past posts if you are so inclined.
All kidding aside, I do hope you will take some time and scroll through your favorite Blogs to see how much we do accomplish in our little quilt world. We have a lot to be thankful for in our little community. We make quilts for those in need. We lend support to fellow quilters and advice when
needed wanted. But, most of all (at
least for me) we relive the stress of everyday life from our aching shoulders
by simply picking up a needle and thread.
My list of ongoing quilts to make is far too long to finish in one year, but I have crossed off a few. Of course, for every one of my 39 (yes 39) quilts on the list I eliminate, I add at least one more!
So, here is a list of the ones that I
think know I will finish in 2017:
1) Log Cabin quilt-a-long with Cecile and Bea (please check out their challenge here)
2) Shenandoah Valley Botanical Album quilt (another quilt-a-long, check it out here)
3) Quilty 365 – finish hand quilting (another quilt-a-long, check it out here)
4) Pot Luck - my most recent potholder quilt
5) Ruby Red – a challenge for our annual show this July
6) Mini quilts – for our annual benefit auction this summer
Now, that is only 6 out of a list of 39. I know there will be many more than this, but since I am such a creative flea, I just don’t know which one I will “jump” to next. Tune in next January to see how I did!
