Mar - UFO Report

Goodness, has another month already come to a close?! I didn't get near as much done as I had hoped, do I ever?

Here's my month summary:
Unfinished Projects at Start of Month: 26
Finished Projects/Quilts this Month: 1
Projects Added this Month: 1
Unfinished Projects at End of Month: 26

I finished my Art Auction Animal Totems Quilt. But that was a foregone conclusion, because I had a hard fast deadline on that one! I really like that one, and I save some fabric to make a little wallhanging for me.

I know I shouldn't have added any projects, but I couldn't help it, I had the opportunity to take a workshop with Bonnie Hunter. She doesn't get out to the west coast for workshops that often. In fact, she said she isn't going to be doing another west coast workshop until Road to California in January 2011!

So I took this workshop and started a Star Gazing quilt for my middle daughter. She picked out several Moda fabrics from the 'Sweet' line. Pictured above are four completed blocks.

Active Projects:
I am actively working on the following projects:

  • Lap Quilt Swap IV - This is a swap quilt that is AWESOME! I only did a few of the blocks but others have done so much more.

  • Gabriella's Baby Quilt - This little baby was right on time, but I wasn't!

  • Star Gazing - From Bonnie's workshop, it will be a twin size.

Year Averages:

    Time Passed: 3 Months
    Avg. Proj Finished per month: 1.7
    Avg. Proj Started per Month: 2.3

Clearly I'm starting more than I am finishing! This must stop.

Ok, my goal for April is to finish THREE quilts and to add NONE!

I like the way you keep everything so organized. I think that you are doing great getting your projects done! I have three UFOS that I am working on, so I am trying to finish them as you are.

I know I shouldn't giggle but...really, you're not going to start any new projects in April! (I wish I had that sort of self restraint!)

Sara said...

I certainly added more ideas/projects than I finished. At least you are still at 26! Good Luck with your goal for April, Can't wait to see all the finished projects!

I'm a retired math teacher so I enjoyed all your stats today. Personally I don't want to think about the unfinished projects, it would really put a damper on the fun of planning new projects and shopping for fabric for them.

Love your star gazing blocks, Dionne, very pretty fabrics.
