I really want to finish quilts, get them off the UFO list so I feel freer to do new things. Luckily there's some fun linky parties that are making it easier to focus on the getting to the finish. One is To Do Tuesday over at Home Sewn by Us. Setting a weekly to do list has helped keep the focus on moving at least one project closer to finished each week.
Only three finishes to date, but also only one start. One of my other strategies that came from the Finish part of the equation was to limit new projects. There's only been one to date, but I have selected fabric for the Morewood Mystery that started last month.
I've not cut that fabric yet, so it doesn't count as started yet. I'm still tweaking the selection, but I'm pretty sure that 3 of the 4 fabrics will go into the new mystery.
Lastly the One Monthly Goal over at Elm Street Quilts keeps the focus on one project for the whole month.
For August the goal is to get Storm at Sea cleaned up and ready to send out for quilting.
I keep putting this step off. Cleaning up the top and the backing isn't the most fun on my list of things to do. But if I want the next finish, that's exactly what needs to happen. I've got the next 2 days off work, so I'm hoping to get a good start on August's OMG.
The 2019 Christmas Mystery quilt just needs a back pieced and Frolic just needs two rounds of borders added to be a finished flimsy. That will make six finishes for the year if I can get that far.
So my one word challenge seems to be going reasonably well for 2020 (it may the only thing that that is this year). Having several supporting regular linky parties certainly hasn't hurt.
