2020 Final Countdown Recap

It’s time to do my 2020 Final Countdown Recap.  Shelly over at Prairie Moon Quilts hosts the Final Countdown each year so we start the new year with a clean(er) sewing room.

Task One was Clear Your Main Work Surface.  Here it is 7 days into the new year and the main work surface still only has the current project on it.

Task Two was Fabric Storage and Stray Fabric Piles.  The above picture shows one of my biggest problem areas. It’s still a mess, but it’s better than it was.

Another place was the fabric  shelves.  Most of the fabric was backings, so they are now stored with my quilt tops.

Task Three was Take Stock /Organize/Deal with UFOs.

I did a several things here.

  • Passed 4 unfinished projects to friends and family
  • Sorted my quilt tops. I’ve now have a box of tops with the fabric I’ll need to make the backing and a box of tops with wide backs, no backing and backings without tops.
  • Finally started the binding on my ModaU quilt which was quilted several months ago.

The sewing room is not perfect.  I still have a pile of fabric on the sewing table to enlarge the backing for Frolic, and if I load anything on the longarm, I’ll have to move a couple of bags, but I think the room is in a better place than it was.

There was a bit of piecing as well.  I finished the lavender Broken Dish units for the wedding quilt and pressed and stitched a few seafoam HST.   Those finished seafoam Broken Dish units were from before.  I need 32 of each color for the next 16 blocks.  Even with this progress, neither my 350 Challenge # nor my  Easy Breezy # has gone up.

 

  • 350 Challenge = 15
  • Easy Breezy = 92
