PHD in 2018
Oh me, oh my … Ann @ Laughing Gas Quilts has finished her first UFO of the year!!! Check it out HERE. At this rate, she may achieve her PHD by the end of the month, or maybe February!
Susan – is joining via Instagram … I will post details when I have them.
Two of my friends want to join in PHD in 2018. Marie has an Instagram account and I’m just waiting for her to approve me. Diane says she does Pinterest enough and is going to follow along at home. Ha! I know they just want that (now) coveted certificate of PHD in 2018!
First Finish of 2018
Here it is: my scrappy Irish Chain. As I mentioned before, most of the 2″ squares in this quilt came from other quilters. People that lovingly don’t want to deal with their own scraps, so they handed them to me. But, NO MORE!!! As fun as it was to sew with other people’s fabric – this did nothing to decrease my own pile of scraps. At any rate, I’m quite happy with how this quilt turned out! It’s 68x 82″.
Since most of the scraps from the above quilt came from others (and not added into my “Fabric Added” calculations), I estimate that approx. 7 yards of my fabric was used (backing, white background & binding).
Fabric Used this Week: 7 yards
Fabric Used year to Date: 7 yards
Fabric Added this Week: 0 yards
Fabric Added Year to Date: 0 yards
Net Fabric used for 2017: 7 yards
PHD in 2018 // UFO tally
I thought I had 56 UFOs … but NO … oh NO …. I found 3 more … Yes 3!!! That brings my total UFOs to 59! SEW – Since I originally said that in order to get your PHD you had to finish at least half of your UFOs or a maximum of 28, I will stick to completing 28 UFOs and finish all new projects that I start in 2018. I’m finding that 28 is stressful enough, 30 would be over the top for me!
