Sandie has invited, and I signed up for a UFO/WISP Challenge 2007
(UnFinished Objects or Works In Slow Progress.)

Its a low stress fun way of finishing some of the projects that I have started.

The funny thing is I am not alone into this challenge. It is always nice working together. And here you can visit the others.

The reasons, why I have many unfinished projects are several. One reason is time. Another one is I have become impatient or bored with my work. The most common reason would be that I have started other projects. I love something new.
Anyway, when I look at them, or think of them, I know, I just can’t throw them in the bin or give them away. Once I loved them (I think I still do), and it would have been nice to finish them. Therefore I have promised my self to try to complete as many as possible of my UFO/WISP’s during the year 2007.

I am also aware of that we, (my DH and I) are going to build a new cabin this summer. (The old one burned down last winter) I know it is time-consuming to build something, but the cabin needs new quilts! At least one for each bed…..

I have not shown you any of my WISP’s. I am not proud of myself throwing these away into a corner, behind something else, in my sewing room. I will start bringing one at the time, into daylight. This is the first one:

I am not going to tell you when I started this one. For those of you who have been quilting for a while, might recognise the fabric.
I just loved the idea of pre-cut fabric and the sets of colours. Did I need them? No. But I just had to hvae them, LOL. During the years that are gone since I started this, I have had several ideas of the results. I think I will go for the last one. You wait and see. I will tell you later in my progress, of reaching my goal for this quilt.

Nina, thank you for the nice comments on my blog. It's early morning (I'm up preparing salads for Thanksgiving dinner) and I had to come see yours. I can soooooooo relate to the squares! lol I have a bunch too and I "just had to have them" so hoping to get something done with them during this challenge. I'll be back to visit some more.
