My reasons for UFOs:
1. I got bored with a technique
2. Before I got my new machine I hated fighting the other one
3. I found something more interesting to start
4. I couldn't figure something out and was too frustrated to continue
5. I got bored
6. I screwed up somewhere and my OCD would go haywire.
7. I get scared of making a mistake. Especially if it's an expensive or hard to find fabric project
8. I'm stuck on a quilting idea and need time to think it out.
9. I got bored
10. I suddenly got intimidated as someone else did it better. Fear of failure or being laughed at
1. My Blue/White Embroidered Quilt. It needs beautiful quilting and I haven't figured out the perfect design. I keep going over and over it in my mind, but nothing.
2. My Compass quilt. Again, needs the perfect quilting in the compass points and the binding done.
3. My machine applique quilt. I cut the bottom side short (OCD problem) and it's a quilting issue.
4. My husband's quilt he picked out. Needs backing and batting. He got picky about the backing and I haven't ordered the backing yet.
5. My Rambling Rose Quilt. For some reason the directions don't work in the book and I really need to sit down and figure out the measurements. It seems like way too much work. And for some reason I despise the colors.
6. Embroidered Napkins. I just need to do it.
7. My skirt. Scared of making a mistake
8. My Carousel Horse quilt. Needs backing and quilting.
9. A Lone Star top that I found. Same problem my friend Anita had. It needs the sides fixed. A friend wanted me to make it for him. I made it before knowing how to do one and I don't know if I can even find the exact fabrics after 4 years.
10. My Aquamarine Ambience quilt. It scares me to death. The fusible fleece isn't cheap. If you don't have it marked right you can mess up the entire block and may not know it until you get to the last couple of designs. Then you've ruined the block. I'm still scared of my embroidery machine too. I keep waiting for it to explode on me.
