UFO Project List

I was supposed to have this list posted on Tuesday, but with the holidays it seems I'm a bit behind.  I'm joining the UFO Challenge over at Patchwork Times.  There are over 50 people now who are going to make a good effort at finishing some of those things that just need to be finished.

#1.  Honey Bee quilt, it just needs to be quilted and bound.

#2 Birdie Stitches quilt.  I need to finish two stitcheries, quilt, and bind it.

#3 Star Quartet by Glad Creations.  If you can believe this was a mystery by mail quilt WAY back in 2005.  It has been cut since then and just needs to be pieced, quilted, and bound.  The finished quilt will be 79" by 98."

#4  "Yours Truly Medley."  I searched and searched for all the fabrics for this and it has been cut out since (dare I say 2004).  I just started piecing it a couple of weeks ago.  It will be really nice to have this one finished!

#5  Starry Patch.  Needs to be quilted and bound.

#6 Butterchurn, needs quilting and you see a recurring theme here?

#7 Honeycomb...this needs work...I am going to finish this one, and I think it was a good thing to let it sit a bit.

#8 Farmer's wife...I'm hoping number 8 isn't chosen first...I will be continuously working on this all year and plan to see it finished.

#9 Vignette hexagon quilt.  I'm over 1/2 way with the hexie flowers, but will be continuing to work on this throughout the year.  It would be a huge accomplishment to finish this in a month.

#10 Cobblestone Lane BOM by This and That.  I have two blocks to finish and then on to the quilting and binding.

#11 Thangles BOM in the darker colorway.  I have three blocks to finish, quilting, and binding.  I'm glad binding is my favorite thing to do. :)

#12 Thangles BOM in the bright colorway...yes exact same quilt as the one above.  I have three blocks to finish and then I will quilt and bind it.

WOW...if these are all finished at the end of 2012 that will be an accomplishment.  At this point if I even work on some of them that will be amazing.  Most of the quilting has been left because my old machine wasn't the best for quilting...BUT a new machine has made residence in my home and it has a BSR, I have another machine quilting class under my belt, and I'm ready to start finishing some of these quilts.  It will be interesting to see how many of these quilts will be finished this time next year.
Happy Stitching!!  --Kristen

What a great batch of projects! My rule is that the quilt is finished when the top is done...they store better that way (less bulk) so unless the quilt will be given away or used right away, it just waits for the right moment. Good luck this year!

What a lovely array of UFO's to tackle in 2012. I have been working on my UFO's this year and am pleased to say I am down to 2 and it feels great. I am looking forward to watching your progress on these projects of the year. Have a great Christmas, Hugs, Sharon

I did a UFO last year on stitchaholics site. It was great to be able to make a list of those projects to finish and get them done. I thankfully didn't have many so it was quite easy. It did however make me re-evaluate a lot of patchwork that my mum started in the early 80s before Australia had decent cotton patchwork fabrics available and send at least half back to her that we ended up tossing anyway. Most ladies did well and found it great to be able to toss things or pass them on to others. I think the word liberating was used quite often LOL. So enjoy yourselves chatting and sharing your UFO challenge
