I am hoping that UFOs will be a major project of mine this year. I easily have 50 or 65. Lots of tops that just need doing. Most are from years ago when it was too expensive to send them out and I had no way to quilt them at home. As my machine power grew (and grew to the Avante) I began to complete the quilts. But they have backlogged. Most are no longer my preference and don't seem so important, but they still need to be quilted or used in a different way.
I have to make two united quilts for my new vibrating bed. It is so large (and I like the separateness of two quilts since Frank is a cover hog) that I need two long, thin quilts that each have half the pattern. Yes, I like that idea. Now to start it.
Bonnie Hunter - I have completed the first and second step. She probably is on Step 42 by now. I want to finish it, it is just coming too fast. And at Christmas time no less. I am sure lots of others are in the same boat. I need to work on step 3 this week.
Quilt the Swamp - will need to be competed in two weeks. Or less. One week. The Oil Derrick is nearly complete and ready to quilt. I did, however, do a small map quilt that I will enter as well. It is testing my early skills in map making. However, after looking at numerous "accomplished" artists online, in SAQA exhibits and in magazines, I think it will pass as fiber art! OMG there is some stuff out there. It seems if you have a SAQA membership and can throw fabric on a base, you can sell it for $750. I need to get me some of that.
Cleaning up the quilt room - is an ongoing project. Why didn't you make me clean it up 3 years ago? Why did I buy fabric? What is all this stuff? Why did I think I wanted to save ever blasted thing I ever saw? Why did Oswald kill Kennedy? Was it a Mafia Connection or just Russian?
These are questions I must ask the Universe.
