A recent tidying up of my sew/craft room found containers, baggies, boxes… of quilt UFO projects. This begs a question: Why do I lose enthusiasm towards some projects?
My latest completed UFO project, one I once looked forward to, had become a chore. It wasn’t turning out how I envisioned. I was simply tired of it. I found excuses to work on other projects. I even started to work on a new quilt made from the scraps of this quilt (Huh?).
I think all quilters must go through quilt burnout at one time or another. I think it happens to me when I let my room get disorganized, messy and over run while fabric scraps pile up. The recent toss out, cleanup and straightening of the room, servicing my machine and a good vacuum helped to inspire me again.
I’m so happy that this quilt is completed that I named it, “Sásta.” Now. I’ve set myself upon the goal to conquer and complete all UFO projects before starting a new one. Let’s see if I can live up to this goal! 😀
Have a good week – – Joanne
