Contemplating a Couple of Challenges...


Here are my selection of black and white fabrics that I came home with from our swap at the Minneapolis Modern Quilt Guild meeting last week.  I can add one solid fabric to the mix and the big reveal for this challenge is at our May meeting.  So I'm contemplating my color choice... I won't be starting it soon but perhaps you've noticed I do have a bit of paralysis of analysis issues?!  One of our members, Annik is giving away some black & white fat quarters so you should check out her blog, Mini Mushroom.

The other challenge I'm contemplating today is unfinished projects. There are several great UFO challenges out there, Judy's at Patchwork Times & Myra's PhD challenge.  I guess I didn't join those as I was hoping to make a more concentrated effort at the beginning of the year and wanted to choose the order I did the projects since a few were gifts.  The Butter Churn quilt that I finished last week was actually for my mother in law's birthday which was yesterday, so now that I have her and my mothers' gift sewn I can re-examine my list. 

I'm thinking of a bit of self induced fast & furious pre-spring UFO challenge over the next 2 or 3 weeks.  How many small projects can I cross of my list to make it shorter?  (Nothing too unrealistic, my house needs to be cleaned and I don't want to stay up late every night.)  I was wondering if any of you would like to join me, these things are always more fun to do with someone?  Not a ton of crazy rules either- I'm not making a list before ,only of what I do get done!  Leave a comment if you'd like to play along...

If I wasn't drowning under a pile of fabric, and quilts to be made. I'd join your UFO project. I just have to say, the sight of your Kona card and those black & whites makes my heart sing!

Great plan but now's not the time for me to put even more pressure on myself - I've got to keep plugging away on a few things. Good luck!

I love the challenges because they do put a little pressure on me to get into gear. It always feels so good to get them finished and off of the UFO list.

I love the B&W projects. I keep finding myself wanting to go back to the easy use of those fabrics.
