Closet Confessions of a Quilting Procrastinator

>> Thursday, September 2, 2010

I have been overwhelmed this week with the discovery of all my unquilted tops. They have been piled, rolled, shoved and stacked in piles in my sewing closet. After writing all 12 of them down {yes, 12!} I made a "September to do list". And I'm doing it!

Here's a peek at the back label for my sister's housewarming gift. I don't think I'll reveal it here until she receives it, but I'm hoping to be done the quilting today. Then binding over the weekend.

Right after completing my list of unquilted projects I got out Tong's fabrics for this month's Sew Modern Bee block. I know, I know! But it's just 2 blocks! Then I mail them away and she has to put the quilt together:)

Old habits die hard for me. I really want to participate in Pat Sloan's Lucky Charms Sew Along.
And I saw that Esther will be having a quick Christmas BOM.
Plus there will be the Minnesota hop with all those designers and their enticing projects!

But I really want to FINISH some things in my closet. I have plans for more and different things for next year and I really want to finish and enjoy what I've started.

I really want to get back to work on my Halloween 1904 quilt.

This is what I will cut and sew when I feel like I need to piece.

Wish me lots of luck, but more than that, perseverance!

With Joy,
Sarah Vee

I struggle with finishes too. It is always a goal for me.

12! I didn't take the time to count, I just filled one big bin with unfinished projects. We should have our own challenge to see who can get more things completed before Christmas.
Oh, and thanks for the house warming gift. I can hardly wait to see it, so finish it up!
