While researching a pattern on the internet, I happened on the newsletter for Glad Creations Quilt Shop in Minneapolis, Minnesota. It it was an article whose title I quickly read. The article was called "Ready for a New Challenge? How about challenging yourself to " 52 Finishes" ?" Hmmmm.... It struck a chord.
The article goes on to detail the possibilities for what constitutes a "finished" project. But as the author points out you can, and are encouraged to, make your own rules as to what is going to be called "finished". Hmmmm... Another chord struck.
If I counted cutting the fabrics for a specific quilt top as a finish, as well as counting a completed top as a finish or even (a really finished project!) a quilted and bound (with binding counting as a separate finish, of course) quilt, I could have fun with myself and my UFO stash. Hmmmm.... The final chord has been struck!
I decided to just do it!
52 Finishes will appear as a separate tab on the blog. Check back next week to see my progress. My plan is to post weekly but since I am making the rules for my personal 52 Finishes challenge you may find more than one finish in a week. Multiple finishes in a particular week will allow me to get ahead on my finishes for those weeks we all have where nothing gets done.
Remember my 52 Finishes Challenge, my rules.
I already have enough projects to take me through several years of a 52 Finishes challenge.
So I am not fretting that I am starting this in mid July. I was never any good with New Year's resolutions anyway.
Will you join me in your own 52 Finishes challenge?
You can challenge yourself to include anything in your own challenge. It does not have to be quilt related. I plan to include some of those knitting and sewing repair projects that have been languishing.
Remember, my 52 Finishes Challenge, my rules.
Check the tab on Friday and see what I accomplish this week!
