Judy L's UFO Challenge

Tuesday, September 16, 2008

Am I Brain Washed? I went to Golden D'Or with a friend on Saturday. This is the place where I recently purchased a large amount of fabric. I was very close to finishing my last UFO and had just read on the Stashbuster group to repeat to myself while looking at fabric "I have an obscene amount of fabric. I have an obscene amount of fabric." I didn't mean to have that mantra run through my head. It just sort of popped into my mind and wouldn't go away. At one point I even picked up a bolt of fabric and said...."This is pretty but won't go with anything I am currently working on." My head snapped around looking for the impostor with my same voice. What did she say??!?!?!?!? Ultimately I walked out with 1/2 a yard of lace for my crazy quilt collection at a whopping total of $2.17.

Quilt Kits I made my list of 12 quilts to work on next. In order to be on the list I must already have the fabric and pattern in my possession. It was way to easy to make that list. Last night I went and bagged up the corresponding fabric and material for each project in a 1 or 2 gallon Ziploc bag. I have to admit I am missing 2 pieces of fabric and 1 pattern to finish this task. I was interrupted with math homework. I will find those last two items and the pic you see here will include all of the kits.

You showed amazing restraint. I am duly impressed.

Wow! I love your idea for organizing future projects! I wish I had your forthought and could plan that far in advance. I'm such a "whim" type of crafter, but that also means I probably spend too much on "whim" projects that I don't have all the supplies for. I think I will try and make 3 or 4 project baggies with ONLY things I have on hand tonight and see what I come up with! They remind me of those book and tape sets you'd get at the library that come in a baggie. :)

I've been trying to go through and put my projects together. Mine are in tubs. I have the fabrics together but love the idea of putting the pattern with it. Then I wouldn't have to go searching for it every time.

Since you're done with all of your UFO's do you want some of mine? Ha ha!

You are awesome! I'm getting there, but have found I can only manage to not go through the door. Once in the shop, I'm done for.

I too, keep my projects and kits bagged or F&P boxed for future "makin's" works well.

So, now you are my inspiration...

I have an obscene amount of fabric, I have an obscene amount of fabric, I have....

I wonder if it's sinking in!

Cheers!

I'm impressed with you kitting up your next quilts - I have a list of quilts I want to make for when I allow myself to start something new. In the past, whatever I'd seen most recently was what I went with.
