Charm Pack Cherry - ALYoF August Goal

I am wholeheartedly back on the "Finish it up" bandwagon!  It all started when I thought I would spend a wee bit of time this afternoon straightening up my sewingroom.  As I sorted fabrics into their projects, projects into tubs and placed the tubs onto shelves, I realized quite quickly that I had a few more than the 26 projects I thought I had in the works.  A quick count of just what was in my sewingroom brought me to over 37!  (((Sigh)))

  Unfortunately, I have many more projects hidden away in other rooms of my house so the final count is even more than that!





Thankfully, there are a number of projects that are very near completion and just need a bit of focus on my part.


I had discovered some leftover charm squares a few months ago and decided to turn them into another Charm Pack Cherry quilt.  I had sewn all the blocks up as a leader/ender project....then, there they sat.


As I was cleaning today, I threw them up on my design wall and my goal is to get this quilt finished before the end of August!










I still have a number of projects that have been banished to the laundry room for now because I have no more room for them in my sewingroom.

Guess I will be updating my WIP list this evening and coming up with a game plan!



A Lovely Year of Finishes

Take a look at what others are hoping to accomplish this month over at Sew BitterSweet Designs.  I know I will be linking up a finish later in the month and will probably have a number of other finishes as well.  I see a whole lot of quilting in my future!

I feel for those poor projects banished to the laundry room. LOL I don't feel so bad for having so many projects on the go at the same time. Good luck!

I need to jump on that band wagon too! Great quilt! Have a fun and productive day!

Does it count as a UFO if you haven't cut the fabric yet? LOL!!!

ES said...

You can do it! I am sure you will get this one finished up in no time :)

Kaja said...

Wow, I can't even imagine have that many UFOs. Good luck bringing the number down a bit!

Hello, that is a lovely pattern! I see you are going for the "alternative" layout (where all the skinny bits line up). I like it better than the original layout, to be honest! Keep up the good work!

comforting to know I'm not alone!!

I appreciate your honesty, and I also admire how many quilts you make in a month/year.

Linda said...

You may have a lot of projects going but you are so productive! I am feeling sorry for the laundry room-banished projects. ;)

I love to piece tops and then they languish.

With the wonderful projects that you have already completed, I have every confidence that you will complete these quilts when the time is right. I know I have a couple projects that somehow keep getting pushed aside, but I love them, they will get completed. Thanks for sharing and we are all cheering you on and give you the support if you ask! Have a wonderful creative day!

Okay - you win! Quilter With The Most UFO's. Although, I'm definitely certain there is someone out there that can top 37. Get to crackin', girl!

Lovely wip on the wall, Cynthia. No doubt you'll get her done. Those banished projects look interesting too. Cute suitcase!

I need to do some counting of UFOs, but I am afraid to!!! How is it that I keep coming up with new ideas for quilts to start on?!
