A Workable Plan to Get Them Out of Your Sewing Room!
If you’ve been quilting for awhile you probably have a few unfinished projects tucked away (commonly known as UFOs – Unfinished Objects). You may even have more than a few.
UFOs are the bane of most quilters. Usually the plan is to finish them up … someday. Until then, they can be a drag on your productivity and creativity, especially if they tend to nag at you. Not to mention the precious storage space they take up.

Jacquelynne Steves has written two excellent articles to get you moving toward clearing out your stash of UFOs. The first is about sorting through and evaluating them, and letting go of those you know you’ll never finish (yes, it’s OK to decide to let a project go). She provides a lot of very useful tips to ease you through the sorting process.
In her second article Jacquelynne focuses on how to get the remaining UFOs finished up. It, too, has many useful tips for evaluating each project and setting up a schedule for getting it done. You may be surprised how a few changes can make a project finish up more quickly.
If you’ve been struggling with how to tackle your UFOs, you’re sure to find these articles very helpful.
