Oh, fun, I thought! I imagine little gems when I look at these blocks. I immediately wanted to make more and I have plenty of strings. I asked myself, is this a UFO or just a few blocks, maybe not even a WiP? Because if it's not a UFO those blocks need to go back where they were so I can work on a true UFO -- one that's further along than 17 blocks.
So I put that question to you, dear readers. When is a project a UFO?
No (I think)?
- you made a few blocks and aren't sure you want to continue so you laid them aside to work on something else
- you made a few trial blocks to see if you like them and they're on your design wall
- you've made blocks without a specific intention for their use
- the intended dozen blocks are made, you just need to choose sashing and sew
- all the pieces for the blocks are cut, they just need sewn
- you ran out of the fabric you used and are searching for more
- all you have to do is add the border
- it's ready to be layered and basted
- it's ready to be quilted
- only the binding is left to sew
- it's been laying in your closet for 10 years waiting for the quilting lines to be marked
- it needs a little tweaking (for any number of reasons)
So please tell me, how do you decide whether you have a UFO on your hands or a WIP? At what point does it become a UFO?
I couldn't help myself. I made a few more of those little quarter log cabins.
I have an idea or two in mind for them. But I should probably get back to a true UFO, right?
