Judy L at Patchwork Times is going to be hosting a 2011 UFO challenge. Her idea is at the first of the month she will pick a number and your UFO associated with that number will be what you try and finish that month.
Today is the day we post our list of UFOs on our blogs. I found at least 12, they are not put in any special order, just the order I found them in.
So, these are some of the older and not so old projects I will be working on this year.
UFO #1 – is a floral appliqué wall hanging that I started years ago. I don’t remember when but it was prior to 911 because some of the appliqué was accomplished on a LONG plane ride to Taiwan. I was going to hand quilt this, did a little bit and decided that was not for me. To finish this I am going to take out the hand quilting, add another border or two to make it large enough for a lap quilt and put it on the frame and finally get it quilted.
UFO #2 – Is from a Convergent Quilt workshop I went to a few months ago. Just need to find some backing and get it quilted.
UFO #3 – is a nursey rhyme panel that I only put one border on. This needs a couple more simple borders.
UFO #4 – was made out of left overs from a quilt I made my grandson. It is only about 36 inches square so need to find something to add a couple more borders.
UFO #5 – My batik quilt. Recently finished the top but putting it on the list to make sure I get it done.
UFO #6 – Small Row Robin – these rows were done with a on line group of friends YEARS ago. Need to get this made into a quilt.
UFO #7 – Large Row Robin – this was put together with the same group of on line friends not to long after I started quilting. Think I am going to take the huge outer border off of it, quilt and bind it and it will be a nice sized nap quilt.
UFO #8 – Crazy blocks – I made these crumb blocks to make a table runner out of. This should be a quick and easy finish on this one.
UFO #9 – I made a tropical charity quilt last year and they are the left overs. Hopefully there is enough to make a small charity quilt from this.
UFO #10 – Swap blocks also made with on line group. I think I have 9 of them so should make a small quilt.
UFO #11 – These are some of the twin sister blocks (bonnie hunter pattern) I am working on now with left over 2 ½ strips.
UFO #12 – I made a Split Decision charity quilt last year and donated it to a wounded soldier program at Andrews Air Force Base. I had a bunch of blocks left over. I think with making a few more I should have enough for another quilt.
It should definitely be an interesting year!!
