June has started so I’ve picked a “UFO to Finish” this month. I made this quilt top from some gorgeous Japanese fabrics ages ago but never got around to quilting it and finishing off the quilt. So this month my goal is to finish it. I’ve picked this one first because my friend B is “travelling” to Tokyo this month in her If Project so it seemed to fit.
This means I need to
- find the quilt - wherever it is stashed in my craft room!
- find a backing for it
- baste it – this is where you lay out the top, the batting and the backing ready to quilt them together
- quilt it
- bind it
- label it – I’m very slack at labelling my quilts although I know I will regret that one day so I’m adding this to the list here. I probably should add the label to the backing before I quilt it really.
So there you have it. That’s my UFO Challenge goal for this month. Sounds a little overwhelming right now but I’m hoping that breaking it into steps like this will help me to aim for one step at a time.
Now how about you? What is your goal for this month? I know some of you have signed up to the Finish a UFO Challenge and it is not too late – you can join in anytime! You can add your goal in the comments of this post if you want to put it out there, or tell me over on the Facebook page.
