It's amazing what you can do when you put your mind to it. Oh, having a deadline also helps. It's the third year I've run the UFO club, and the amount of work I've completed is insane. I can vouch for everyone in the two clubs when it's been a godsend in getting some of those old projects done. I'm shocked actually because there isn't anyone policing us; however, there is that $10 per month that we could lose.
And who wants to always miss the deadline in front of your peers? Not me!
Well, the same thing is happening in some of the other clubs. This year I also started the MANY blocks projects. These are the quilt with many blocks, like Dear Jane, the 365 Quilt, and Town and Country, to name a few.
There's no money involved in that club, but it's the PEER pressure. I don't want to let the group down, and I certainly do not want to let myself down.
Here's an update on the 365 Quilt. These are the blocks that I finished while at the retreat.
And to appreciate how small those 3½" blocks (unfinished) are, look at this flying geese unit. Now that's small!!!!
