I can't say that my sewing room is perfectly tidy...it's tidy-ish. LOL But I can say that all my UFOs are finished, more or less.
I had a self-imposed deadline of December 31 to quilt my pile of quilt tops. All ten tops are now quilted! I still need to add the binding (which are all made) to them. Since this is my sewing space, I'm calling those UFOs now finished. 😉 The bindings will be added in the coming week.
I gave away a UFO that was partially pieced to a guild mate, and she finished it the next day. Clearly it went to someone who could appreciate and love it.
I decided not to complete the 2017 Milky Way Sampler -- I only made two blocks. Why did I decide to make a paper pieced pattern back then when I had no love for paper piecing?
I also decided not to complete the Sewcial Bee Sampler. I pieced my 12 finished blocks. This is one of the ten tops I quilted. Stay tuned for a post on that finish.
And yet another project I've decided to end before it's actually finished -- Stellar Stars 2018 Block of the Month. I won this pattern in a giveaway, which included the fabric and thread. I ran out of the background fabric and wasn't able to find it in Canada (too costly to order from the US). This is a very old UFO, and I'm ready for it to be done. So I need to figure out a layout that works with the blocks I have finished to date.
That leaves two remaining UFOs -- two temperature quilts. Temperature Quilt 2020 is half done - I have pieced January to June. I got out of the daily habit of making each block, and then before you knew it, I was behind. And I'm still working on Temperature Quilt 2019. I didn't consider the best way to piece this, and so I am struggling with piecing the long columns for each month to the previous month. These are not priority projects, and they'll get done eventually.
I have five current projects on the go:
Morewood Mystery QAL - This QAL started back in July 2020 and will finish up in April. I am current with the instructions and think that we'll begin piecing the top this month.
Bokeh QAL - I'll be sewing along with Yvonne @ Quilting Jetgirl. My fabrics are chosen, and I'm ready for the cutting instructions which will be released next week.
Exploding Hearts QAL - This is another QAL that starts next week, hosted by Laura @ Slice of Pi Quilts. I washed my fabrics today, and I'll be using my Accuquilt to cut the pieces.
2021 Monthly Color Challenge - I'm sewing along once again with Jen @ Patterns by Jen. I'll be blogging along with Jen, with January and August being my months.
Stay at Home Round Robin - Gail @ Quilting Gail is hosting another Stay at Home Round Robin, and I'm one of the bloggers involved.
I'm not going to make any goals for 2021, other than that I plan to quilt all finished tops as quickly as possible and to only make things that make me happy. Happy New Year.
