First Finish of 2020

It’s the perfect way to start the new year, finishing a quilt.  Yes, all it needed was to be bound, but a very important step.

The top had been completed for 3-4 years and it was machine quilted this past summer.  I did pull a piece of fabric from my stash to make the binding, well, because I was unsure where the extra from the backing was.

So, I’ve identified several problems I have with my stash, too much fabric and an inefficient storage system.  My goals include creating storage that works for me, whittling down the amount of fabric I have, and busting through my UFOs.

There are many ideas floating around the internet on how to store and categorize your fabric, notions, rulers, patterns, books, etc.  Not all solutions fit every quilter.  Everyone’s space available for quilting and crafting are different.  We don’t all have a She-Shed in the backyard!

Over the next few weeks, I’ll be pulling out and categorizing my UFOs.  Some will need to be finished, such as putting bindings on.  That is low hanging fruit my friends!  I think I currently have 3 quilts in that queue!

Until next time
