PIGS: Projects in Grocery Sacks with Lori Baker

The Quilters’ Community | Episode 77

Here’s a quilt trunk show unlike any other! Quilters Newsletter creative editor Lori Baker shows off her unfinished projects and offers suggestions on how to reduce your own stash of quilt works-in-progress. When Lori realized she had completed just three unfinished quilt projects in the previous 10 months (a very low number for her), she established a rule that called for one hour of sewing each evening.

Watch as Lori describes why each quilting project went unfinished and whether she plans to finish them. Simple tools such as a rotary cutter, ruler, and template will lend a hand in finishing projects up.

  2. The first 3 minutes are repeated in the next three minutes…. Other than that, it gives a couple hints. But, I would not put things in plastic bags – I use very large zip lock bags so I can see through them.

    • I agree with you – I put all my Ufos or PIGs in clear ziplock bags and in clear bins. I’d hate to have to go through all the grocery bags – would take up all my hard to find sewing time! Otherwise sorting suggestions are okay.

  3. I am going to use this idea with our Guild. We are always looking for a challenge. It will be. Great way to collect some projects to donate. Thanks!
