Merit Badge Awardees (click for latest awards)
My featured Merit Badge Awardee of the Week is … Debbie Klann!!!
Debbie Klann (#770) has received a certificate of achievement in Stitching & Crafting for earning a Beginner and Intermediate Level UFOs Merit Badge!
“Making a list of my UFOs was enlightening … and a little shocking! I am one of those that LOVE the excitement of starting a new project … but there’s that in-between time of starting and finishing when I can get bored.
I made a list of all of my started projects by category. I have them all separated with all of the supplies I need for each one.
I had been planning on working on just what I had at home as a New Year’s resolution this year, but I was so excited when finishing your UFOs was made into a new merit badge shortly after the beginning of the new year. I have gotten into a routine of working on projects during the day if I have free time or in the evenings. I have made it a personal challenge to not buy or start any new projects. It’s now become as exciting to FINISH a project as to START … and such a satisfying feeling to keep crossing projects off of that list!
Here is a photo of a small tabletop-size quilt that I finished right away. I won’t tell you how long it’s been waiting to be finished!
In making my UFO list and going through each project, I did decide that I didn’t have an attachment to some of the projects anymore. Those I donated. This left me with what I had to finish for my Intermediate badge.
I had this quilt top that I knew needed something special to really make it stand out. I sent it to my quilting friend to finish on her long arm.
I also had an applique quilt that needed the quilting finished … I had put it off and put it off … now was the time to just get it done!
Eva Marie did a beautiful job, just like I knew she would. I was so pleased with her work!
I cannot believe that the pink quilt is FINALLY done! I had posted pictures of both quilts on the chatroom thread for UFOs. I said that after so long, when that final stitch was complete, I felt like one of my children had left home! It feels so great to have it done!”
Debbie, your finishes UFO quilts are beautiful !! Thanks for posting photos and congratulations. You are really on a good roll!
As the arch procrastinator of all time, I applaud you for getting these quilts done!! Very lovely indeed!
Congratulations! They are beautiful!
Way to go, Debbie! Your quilts are gorgeous! Can’t wait to see what you do for expert level!
