    A shoutout well deserved. Yes, I must STOP looking at people’s blogs, fabric shops, shop hops, and free pattern notices! I must have a thousand on my computer already!

    Loved your I Like Thursday likes by the way. I like Donnalee’s line too about seeing a pattern and thinking of using scraps. I don’t even have that many scraps but I think like that. But I do have some Tilda fabric that I bought online and oh, the inspiring things folks are making. You guys have quite the list there and isn’t it lucky you have four hands!:)

    Certainly great to finish and donate. UFO’s abound for most of us I think. I make scrap quilts that i am not sure what I’ll do with and sometimes donate. The quilts I like best that I make are the ones I have someone in mind for. Then I can think of that person all the way from start to finish.

  4. Yep I’m with you on the UFOs. It’s quilter ADD and I agree with what Wendy said… aka squirrel! I did make a list at the beginning of the year with Tish’s UFO party in mind but it would help to revisit that list more often, and It would also help to NOT visit Pinterest, Instagram other bloggers…lol

    Hello Roseanne, Wowsers do you and Sue have a list! I shouldn’t write it like that, due to the fact that Pinterest somehow became my list! ROFLMAO seriously!!! I love quilts in all aspects. Until several years ago, about 5 now, I always finished each quilt. I do not know what happened, but I now have a tote full of UFO’s. I am slowly working on getting each one done and am proud of each one I do finish. I do agree with donating the ones that we do not want or finishing them and then donating them. Your post was a great read and once again inspiring!! Thank you for sharing and have a great day!

  6. Enjoyed reading your post! Donnalee is an inspiration!!! I know that working on my PHD (finishing UFOs) has helped me to decrease the number and finish all the projects that I start!
    Happy Quilting! 🙂

    I don’t cal them UFO’s. I call them Works in Progress! LOL I have a lot of those in my head too.

    Thank you Rosanne for all the nice compliments and bringing up the subject of taking some time to quilt for charity. Every community has agencies that can use a helping hand with quilts. Almost all of us have stashes from years back that we might never use. Making a quilt for charity purposes is the solution, Get it out of there so there is room for new stuff. LOL.

  9. I only have one UFO…and reading your post made me think of it– I never quilted my 2018 Autumn Jubliee quilt! I can only manage one project at a time — I have a great many quilt layouts sketched on graph paper so I tend to have lots of “not started” projects instead of not finished.

  10. Sometimes UFOs remain UFOs because there is no ‘purpose’ to them being finished…purpose as a charity quilt opens up an option for some of those for sure. This then opens up a whole other realm of following favorite charities to contributing on-the-fly to others.
    Right now, my UFOs are non-existent…that’s not a brag, just a fact. I rather like having a few of them around, personally!!!! HA!

  11. For me, for every UFO that gets finished, there’s at least one more new project that takes its place – haha!

  12. I had a good handle on my UFO’s but everything is at a standstill at this time – darn! Hopefully I can catch by December! Hugs
