100 Finishes

After my buying binge

last month
I decided it's time to
get to work
finishing what
I've started...

So no more buying
until
100 of my UFO's
are finished...
can I really have than many
???

between
quilt tops
hooked rugs
cross stitch
punch needle
fabric covered boxes
prim stitchery
and more
there is no doubt
more rather than less
would be an
accurate estimate...

I'll share photos of unfinished

then completed
pieces...
today's photos are just
two quilt tops in progress...

the patchwork above
was done on the machine
using fabric from my scrap basket
it can use a border
and applique
small enough for a table topper
or hung on a ladder


the baskets quilt

is a Jan Patek design

not sure where to go from here
since I no longer
wish to make the whole quilt

I do have other blocks
done for it too...
at least one more vertical row...

will tackle a few simple
finishes first
to get my momentum going

Those are going to be beautiful. I don't think I have one hundred items, but I do need to finish things and stop starting new ones;)

Beautiful pieces! I'll be here to rally you on! Might even try to do the same thing your doing... I think I can stick to that... unless Betty or Stacy releases a pattern... ;-)

Those are two great quilts Kelley!! I love them both and can't wait to see how you finish them. It's going to be fun and inspiring to see your items before and after finishing!!

I think we must both must like to have lots of different projects to keep us busy...100 or more UFO's I'm right there with you we certainly won't get bored! I think I'll "tackle" some of mine and see if I can't finish up some myself!
