2018 Quilt Plan

For the last three years, I've put together a quilt plan.  It didn't seem to help very much the first two years in moving projects to the finished state.  Though the 2016 plan had all the graduation quilts that needed to be done by May of 2017 on it as planned project starts.  All four of those quilts got done before the due date (the night before still counts as done before the due date).  For 2017, seven quilts moved to the finished list (including three of the graduation quilts).  

In 2017, I learned that setting priorities is key to moving projects off the quilt plan.  Participating in the One Monthly Goal over at Elm Street Quilts will help set the priority each month.  Linking up with American Patchwork and Quilting's 2018 UFO Challenge and with Patchwork Time's 2018 UFO Challenge will provide some accountability.  Hopefully all of this leads to finishes in 2018.
