The next morning I was still thinking about those UFOs. In the past I would try to distract myself with all kinds of nonsense to forget about ideas that wouldn’t go away. Since then I’ve learned to just embrace them and roll with it because I’ll end up acting on it anyway.
So I started thinking about what I could do right now to finish another UFO. I like them all, so no giving them away or tossing them.
OK, so what if I sent some of them out for quilting?
Bingo. I dug around and found this top I finished back in 2008. If I hadn’t quilted it myself in the past three years, I never would. It was time to let it go.
Only one quarter of it shows because it’s folded. I was too lazy to spread it all out before taking the picture. Ignore the yellow. That’s yet another quilt.
I called my long arm quilter and made arrangements to meet her. The top went home with her yesterday. She doesn’t have much of a backlog, so I’ll probably get it back in a week or two.
Time to start looking for the next thing.
Who is the person that is doing to the long arm quilting?
I would be interested in the long armer as well. My quick turn around gal quit doing it last year for a “short time” and she hasn’t started back up yet. I always send out anything larger than a baby quilt because it just stresses me out to try to figure out how to quilt it and then actually do it. I feel the money is well spent because I’m not the one putting the time into the thing. Unless it’s for charity or something special, my time is worth more than that and truthfully I don’t enjoy the quilting process all that much to begin with. HA! Wish I had one finished so I could sent it out!
