Time to finish those pesky PIGS

I hope everyone enjoyed their Easter. It was quiet here. The boys were gone so I took the weekend to finish up all the little projects that have piled up over the years. I decided it was time to address those bags boxes, and piles of past projects. You know, those we just had to start, only to become enchanted with yet something else, so they get stacked up and pushed into a corner. While cleaning out thoses corners I found stacks of fabric, that I distinctly remember carefully picking out, but now I have no idea what it was even for! I have racked my brain, to no avail!

So no more for me. From this point on, I am putting my projects in Ziplock bags, with the pattern and anything I bought for the project. Not that it is going to help me with what I have already managed to collect, but hopefully as I get thru all the projects my mind will remember where some of these other things go!  :-)
In the mean time I have logged quite a few of the unfinished PIGS (projects in grocery sacks) and posted them on the the left side bar. As I finish them up I will log them as done, and my goal is to get thru this list this year. It's a hefty goal! I am the queen of "side track" when I see a new quilt in my local shop or at a show, but I am going to put my best foot forward and try to get thru these things. I will be posting my results as I go. I find that having a commitment helps me. Hopefully in my quest to finish up things, it will inspire some of you too. I get such great joy in reading blogs from quilters and find so many motivating ideas thru them. Let's all dig out our PIGS and dig in! I'll show you mine if you show me yours!  :-)  Anyone up to the challenge??

My first finish is this Purple Mystery Quilt from Patchwork Planet July 2009. The piecing has been done since that day, and I can happily say that it is now quilted. While it took way too long,  the timing is great with Spring on it's way. The flowers are just starting to come up in my garden and the snow is finally gone!  :-)

  1. Your quilt is lovely.

    I was looking at some of my unfinished projects recently and thinking "why are these not done yet" so I am going to finish them ASAP.
