WIPs on Wednesday

I was wondering how much progress I’m actually making with my UFOs. It’s really strange but just a few items on my original list of UFOs have been completed, I’ve finished quite a few this year but it seems most of them have been new UFOs!

Here are a few of the originals

This one is from 1999! I guess you can tell by the fabric colors. Lol

        WIP 005

This one is from 2010. Just not feeling this color combo anymore! 

        WIP 007

This one is from 2009. It’s the saddest of all, because I really love this one. I started hand quilting it using big stitch quilting with perle cotton and I didn’t like the look. So I tried traditional hand quilting and you know that takes forever. So it keeps getting pushed to the back of the pile. At this rate I’ll probably make a new one and get it finished before this one.     

        WIP 021

Am I the only one who does this? Do you have new UFOs and old UFOs? If they get too old do you just give them away to a nice home? Or keep them and hope one day you’ll get around to them?

I think it is great to see how your fabric choices change over the years! That being said if it is an older one I will donate it to a group or a charity to finish. Sometimes I just like to clean out my UFO's that way.

I still have UFO's that I started over 10 years ago. There's always the lure of something new to work on. But of late, I've pulled out a couple of the newer ones and started quilting on them

I love you 2009 quilt!
Yes, my oldest UFO is from that time when my son was 7 years old and He is 26 now so you can imagine it. :)
It would be a huge quilt with Grandma flowers, I have tons of blocks from hexagons! :)

I have new and old UFO's! I also end up with other people's UFO's...don't think I'll ever get them all done.

I am sorry for this duplicate links, but it seems my previous link doesn't work.

Congrats on finishing some of your UFO's! I don't really like to have UFO's so I try my best to finish them before they get too old. That said I don't have old UFO's, those I have are not more than 1-2 years old.
