Visual To-Do List

It's a challenge to keep track of my unfinished quilts but because I made a vow to complete them all, I came up with a system: I took a photo of a block from each one and pinned the pictures to a large bulletin board. I also added pictures of four favorite quilts I wanted to make in the future. As I complete each unfinished project, I draw an X through its photo. As further incentive, I allow myself to start one of the quilts on my favorites list after completing an unfinished quilt top.
