My one recommendation is to have a time limit for finishing a UFO-is it possible? Here are 3 reasons you should consider this challenge.
1. You may not be able to find the pattern for your project. When I pulled this quilt out, I found that I didn't have the pattern. Luckily I had put one of the blocks together so I could figure the pattern out. It would have been a shame to throw away all of those neatly cut little pieces.
2. You may not like the quilt or pattern when you decide to finish it. Styles and colors change. Something that was trendy and interesting 4 or 5 years ago may seem dated and uninteresting when you dig it out of your UFO pile.
3. You may not be able to find fabrics you need to finish your quilt. As we all know, fabrics go out of print and you may find yourself in a pickle when you are just short of the amount needed for the finish.
All three of these things happened with this quilt. I was able to cobble together a small quilt from the fabrics that were cut out. The fabrics are old enough to be out of print and the colors are a little dated too. Luckily I LOVE anything blue so I can live with the colors. The ideal binding would have been the pansy fabric but I didn't have enough. I auditioned many different fabrics for the binding and this was the best I could do. I don't love it but it works.
