I'm trying something new for my quilts in progress. Hopefully it'll prove to be a long term success!
Yesterday at Target, I picked up ten 6-quart Sterlite plastic boxes, marked down to $1 each. They stack up very nicely.
My idea is that any new quilt project I start, or any UFO I pick up, it goes into the box until it's a quilt top. I'm not going to round up all my UFOs. That'd just get too overwhelming. (And I'd need 50 more boxes, at least!) Instead, it's any project I work from here on.
The other thing I'm doing is sticking half of a 4x6 index card with the quilt name and the date I stuck it in the box. Then I know what the pieces are supposed to be for, and how long they've been sitting around.
The one on the left is a Disappearing 9-patch. The other one is a Crayon Box.
If I fill up all ten boxes, then I'm telling myself that I have no choice but to complete a quilt top before selecting another pattern. Think it'll work? ;)
