A report on my quilting resolutions: The list of completed unfinished quilts is so far my most successful category of resolutions. As a quick reminder of this particular resolution:
2. I will make a list* of five quilts that I will work on.
First list of five: Three of those quilts will be unfinished projects, and if I don't want to work on them, I will analyze why not. If I just don't like the quilt any more, I will give or throw it away. If I just don't feel like working on it because I'd rather work on something else, I will allow myself to do so. Two of the quilts will be new projects that I feel like doing using either the fabrics I set aside for that project OR choose as many as possible from my stash. If I need to purchase something to fill out the list of items needed, that's all right.
Second list of five: The numbers will reverse - three that are new projects that I want to work on and two are unfinished projects.
The first one is "Geisha's Garden", a large lap quilt begun in 2009 (yes, you read that correctly). This is the one I took to EC's home for our sew-in on Saturday where I completed the binding - a task that marks this quilt as finished (it already had its label).
The next quilt is a small one and was my second hand-pieced quilt. Spool quilts are among my favorite so I had been very eager to make this one. Even though it turned out to be one of two hand-pieced spool quilt I wasn't as enthusiastic about the actual hand-piecing. However, I really like the way this turned out, and I bound it on Sunday. Its label is still lacking because I am trying to figure out when it was made.
This next quilt is not completely finished, but now that I have added the pieced borders, it is ready for the quilter. This quilt, another hand-pieced one, is made using different combinations of the pieces used to make the churn-dash block (third row, middle block). As things go, this one is relatively new.
And the final one for this showing is the hand-pieced Carpenter's Wheel which I've shown before. Because it was officially finished last week while D was away, it counts as a completed unfinished quilt for this resolution. Yes, it does have a label.
Now I have to return to my second "new" quilt that I started in January. Once that is completed, I can move on to a new list of quilts.
