PHD in 2021: March Progress from Life In Pieces

Three months down, nine to go in 2021.  One of my goals is to finish 8 quilts this year, one more than I've ever managed.  I'm hoping Quilting Gail's PHD in 2021 will keep me motivated enough to reach that goal.  


March's report shows a finish, finally! 



So one finish in the bag, seven more to go!  


The binding for the Picnic Quilt (Red, White and Blue Stars) didn't quite get finished before the calendar turned over to March. But the first finish of 2021 came really early in the month.  

No other finishes for ...

PHD in 2021: February Progress from Life In Pieces

The plan for 2021 was to focus on finishing quilts.  Playing along with Quilting Gail's PHD in 2021 is supposed to help me keep on track and focus on those finishes. 



If you look at my chart for this year, I've done really well on the not starting anything new.  But the other side is still looking pretty anemic, no finishes at the end of February.  


No finish, but there has been visible progress on my four focus projects highlighted in blue. 



Red, White and Blue Stars was sent out for quilting in the middle of January and ...

PHD in 2021: January Progress from Life In Pieces

The goal this year, like last year, is to work down the UFO list a bit.  Also like last year, I'm playing along with Quilting's Gail PHD in 2021 as one of my motivators.  


My plan is to finish the UFOs while limiting new starts.  I've done really well on not starting anything new, but not so hot on finishing anything as yet.  



But there has been really good progress on the four projects highlighted in blue in my tracking chart.

Red, White and Blue Stars (Picnic Stars) started the year as ...

PHD in 2021 from Life In Pieces

It's the last day of 2020.  The pandemic has made life challenging in so many areas, but the year has been good in that I've been home to sew more. That helped take a small bite out of the UFO list.  Playing along with Quilting Gail's PHD in 2020 challenge was also a good motivator.  Gail is again hosting a PHD in 2021 Challenge, as my UFO list still has 22 projects on it, I'm definitely playing along again.    


I've selected 12 projects to focus on for 2021. My plan is finish at least 8 ...

2021 Quilting Ambitions from Life In Pieces

As 2020 winds down it's normal to look ahead to what the plan is for 2021.  Yvonne of Quilting Jet Girl is again hosting her yearly planning linky party, so it's time to commit to a written plan for next year. 



2021 Quilty Ambition #1:  Finish 8 Quilts in 2021

I've been aiming to finish 12 quilts in one year pretty much since I've started writing up annual goals.  The most I've ever finished in a given year is 7. 


As long as I'm working full time, it's doubtful I'm going to ...
