2020 Planning Party

Yvonne at QuiltingJetGirl.com is hosting her #2020PlanningParty. I got a lot done this past year, which I will detail in a separate post, and I have big plans for 2020!

I transferred all my WIP information into a Google Sheet, so I always know exactly where I’m at with each project. It’s helped keep me on track this year.

I have one quilt at the longarm quilter right now – Farm Sweet Farm. As soon as that one comes back, I can trim and bind it. Eventually, it will be a gift for my Dad. My maiden name is Sweet, so the title of the quilt is perfect. ๐Ÿ™‚

I have eight completed quilt tops that are ready to be quilted. Included in that group are my 2017 Designer Mystery BOM, Eight Carat Quilt Along, and two versions of the Merry Mini Mystery Quilt. I also have four that are just panels only, that I’m finishing to sell.

And then there are the fourteen others that I’m working on and the seven that I have scheduled to start and then the other one million that I’m thinking about. ๐Ÿ˜€ Theoretically, I’d like to finish the ones that I’m already working on, but we’ll see how it goes.

  1. Having a big tracking spreadsheet makes a lot of sense to me. I hope it helps you have a productive year and feel good about what you are working on!

  2. Laurel it is good to meet you. I’m gonna follow along with you in 2020. I too am a google sheet girl. It keeps me in check, so I know what I have going on and if I forgot to finish something somewhere.

  3. Hi Laurel, I need to put all my WIPs into a Google sheet too! I have all my completed quilts in a sheet but I have not cataloged all the various projects I have inflight!! Oh my I’m sure I’ll be quite surprised by what’s waiting to be finished!! I’ll check out Yvonne’s Planning Party…maybe I’ll get inspired to take inventory, lol

  4. I need to start a spreadsheet for ufos. I tend to start quilts, then put them aside for new projects, then forget to go back. Love your recordkeeping idea!

  5. I just made a tracking sheet too! I added time — I’m curious to see how long it actually takes to go from idea to finished quilt. But maybe I don’t want to know lol

    Good luck with your 14 unfinished quilts!
