Jumping into another UFO

My list of unfinished projects (UFOs) is relatively long.  I keep it on my phone and update as needed, but to make myself feel better, I also keep a list of finishes.  And, indeed, I have finished quite a few things this year already.  I only have one top waiting to be quilting, and I don't like it.  One of these days I'll think of a way to enhance it with quilting so I will want to finish.

Meanwhile, I joined in another row by row swap with an online group, and here's my first row.  It's not the best photo - I took it with my phone because Paul is out at a cemetery taking a photo for a power point presentation he's doing.  I used purple fabrics that I bought last year.  I buy things because I like them, and then when I get home, I'm not quite sure what I'll make.  But eventually something comes to mind.

This package will be on its way to Janet early this week.  She'll make a row and then mail it on to the next person.  When the package returns, six other people will have made rows that I will put together.  It may be a rectangular quilt, or, like a couple of others, it may surround a medallion.  We'll see!

Next on my agenda is a return to "Atlantic Crossing," which I started in a class with Deb Tucker at the Vermont Quilt Festival in June.  I was waiting for some fabric to go with the background I had used on the borders and center.  Now I have a whole bunch of flying geese to put together.  I want to hand quilt it since it's wallhanging size.  Maybe  I'll work on it in Alabama this winter.

Hi Marianne,

I know what you mean about having a lot of UFOs. That is going to be my next year emphasis. I keep adding to the pile though. Love your fabric choices for the Row by Row swap and I look forward to seeing what develops again this year.
