When you move to a new studio, you find out just how much stuff you have… I even got rid of a bunch when I moved last time, but it just grows 😂 One of the things that I had even more of than I realized was UFO’s. Those projects that get started and then abandoned for various reasons! I am determined to go through them and see what needs to be finished, and what needs to be let go. But in the meantime, I found a great way to organize them 😂 I had been wanting one of these sheet pan racks for a long time for organizing my quilted greeting card kit parts. They’ve been in tubs, so we have to lay everything out every time we pack one. But with these trays, they can stay set up and all I have to do is grab one, plus another tray for the parts that go in every kit. But I also discovered that it’s great for UFO’s! I have more half sheet pans since this photo, but I still need a few more full sheets for the bigger kits and bigger UFO projects. My previous method was to stack them with foam board sheets, and that also worked pretty well. And I will still need to do that if I have more projects than pans… I even do small projects that I can finish quickly partly to help prevent this, but it still happens for various reasons! Some are potential kits that run into a snag, and some I just get sidetracked, usually by a new idea 😂😛 But it’s also great for projects that I haven’t abandoned, I’m just still in the middle of them. I’m so thankful to finally have space for this unusual piece of ‘furniture’ 😂
How about you? Are you a UFO collector, or do you finish one thing before moving on? Happy sewing! Beret

I am a homeschooling mom of three fun kids, who are now old enough that I have a little time to pursue my passion for sewing! After several years of making quilted cards and art quilts, I'm now designing kits and patterns. Some of my designs have been in Keepsake Quilting and Art Quilting Studios magazine! I teach classes online, and am starting to do more traveling and teaching. I also have many tutorials, including some on YouTube. I am blessed to live in Alaska where I am surrounded by the inspiration provided by the beauty of God's creation!
Free card pattern and also an e-book, and a quilt planning checklist!
