This week I read Wendys post on how she is trying to manage her UFO/WIP pile. It turns out that allpeoplequilt.com have developped a simple, yet seemingly effective way of tackling a pile of UFO/WIPs. The steps are as following:
So I did:
And the reason I did was because a lot of my stash is from fabric purchased for a specific project/quilt. Now I recently blogged about my desire to sew my stash in 2015 and linking to that my participation in Leasas
It just seems like the next logical step. More on the UFO of this month later in another post soon.
But speaking of 'sewing my stash' I'd like to share with you my WIP baby boy quilt which will be my first sewn from stash project in 2015. I was given a lovely bundle of FQ's and decided to make a quilt for my friend who is expecting her second baby boy in february. I had decided on HST, but when it came to the border I found myself automatically wanting to buy fabric. When I became aware of this I made myself do one more round of my stash and found 2 lovely, very matching fabrics that together with the the leftover solid green they made a very nice border, if I do say so myself.
I did think that the best binding for this quilt would be a solid, so I 'indulged' in buying some solid grey/anthracite. Not heaps, just about enough for the binding, with a bit of scrap left over for which I do already have a plan in mind.
Till next time,
