In previous years, I've placed each UFO in a giant plastic bag, then numbered the bags. This year, most of my UFOs are in individual plastic bins.
Except for the ones in pizza boxes. Unused pizza boxes, of course! Boriello Brothers has the best "giant" sized boxes, and if you ask sweetly, they will give you some! They work great for large blocks.
So I decided just to list them on the white board. Each time I came across a project, I added it to the list.
I stopped numbering them at #12. I put the ones with deadlines at the top of the list. Now I can just check the list when each month's UFO number is drawn.
Lest you think I have only 14 UFOs, I didn't even count the BOMs (Blocks of the Month).
This list should look familiar, since all but one are carryovers from 2014! The first Monday of the month is designated as "BOM-day." I'm hoping to get back to that habit this year!
The list also does not include finished-but-not-quilted-and-bound tops. I haven't even attempted to count those!
As you finish each UFO, email me a photo (address to the right) so I can include your project in the next month's UFO Parade.
Are you up to the challenge for 2015?
