My list of four has gone fungly

Lazy Gal Quilting has issed a challenge: make a fungly quilt (it's ugly and fun together). This is just the sort of thing that would help me use up some "unspeakables" in my stash.

I will just go and have a peek through some bits and pieces.

Hang on a minute....!! What about my list of four!! I've been working on the civil war hexagons, but that is such a long term project that it will take me a few years to finish it.

Ok, if I finish 2 off my old UFOs list can I start a fungly quilt? The Christmas redwork squares shouldn't take long and then the binding on Kaffe and Liberty. No, it's still not enough. I don't even have time to put the fabrics into a bag to add to my list of PIGs (Projects in Grocery Sacks).
I must think about this rationally!! It will take more than putting on a binding and making a small wallhanging to justify my urge to make a fungly quilt.
Here's my new proposal:

  • Work on list of four:
  1. Kaffe and Liberty binding

  2. Quilt red white and yellow cherries quilt top

  3. put together French Collection stitchery quilt (waiting for fabric)

  4. working on Civil War Hexagons (this is a pick-up and put-down project)
  • Goals in order to start Fungly quilt:
  1. binding on Kaffe and Liberty (this will let me add another project to the list of four)

  2. make Christmas raffle blocks into a wallhanging

  3. make Old Chooks raffle blocks quilt (quilt as you go?)

This is do-able and I can stick to my list of four! Hurrah! I knew I could sort it out.

Too bad I already started putting together the Christmas raffle blocks! oops! Now where is my camera? Here they are, basted and ready to quilt.

It sounds like a good plan to me.
There are so many quilts to make that it is hard to finish the ones I've started before I want to move on to the next one. Your plan sounds like a great way to motivate you to finish the older projects.

Thanks for your feedback. I have nearly finished the Christmas wallhanging... mind you, I do have some non-quilty stuff to get done this weekend!

I wish I were good at prioritizing lists of quilts I want to make. Instead I go in circles and not get anything done. eek. looking forward to seeing your fungly!
