Any measurable progress is good, right?

Well, I’ve finished one languishing quilt UFO so far. That’s progress, right?
This started as a Merry Mayhem New Year’s Day Mystery Quilt-along. 2015. I think it might have been Case #138 “Regatta.” The directions included a ton of half-square triangles. When I saw the final outcome I wasn’t all that enamored. So I found a different way of arranging all those half-square triangles.
I think the inspiration for arranging the half-square triangles might have been the block in Thimble Blossom’s quilt called Fireworks. I just made four giant blocks and sashed them with the polka dot fabric. The only fabric I may have purchased was the backing fabric – most likely on sale somewhere – as I was intending to donate this quilt to charity.
At the time that I started this quilt top I was part of a Do.Good.Stitches group and we were donating quilts to an organization that rescues young women from human trafficking. I’m no longer part of the group and the group no longer donates to that organization. I need to find another place that takes quilts without a size restriction!
There is progress in other areas as well. I finished another belated baby gift this week. Also, sorting and organizing our bookcases felt really good. I found an app called Libib where you can scan the ISBN code (if it has one – or manual enter all the info) and keep track of all your books (and music and movies too!). If you are willing to pay for the pro version you can even keep track of loaning materials to friends. It’s made me think twice about which books I really want to keep.
Have a great weekend!
