Judy's UFO Challenge

 A project just jumped to the top of the list. I have a friend whose son was in Afghanistan. He just came home injured (a double amputee above the knee) and I am going to make him a quilt. He has a long road ahead. I'll be working on the quilt as soon as I get information about what colors or theme he would like. 

I've decided to give it a try. I don't know if I'll finish them all, but it will be fun to see how many I do finish.
Here they are: (they are also linked on the right side of the blog with the amount finished so far). I've also added a page with ALL the UFO's I've found at the moment. You can see it at the top of the blog.

1- Disappearing 9-patch swap--DONE
2- One Block Wonder
3-Solar Flare (don't like this one, we'll see if I just happen to "skip" it by mistake). Since what this needs is basically quilting, and I'm not going to spend a lot of time on it, I'm adding a Professional Bag to this month. I've got all the supplies I need, I just have to get motivated.
4- North Winds group quilt--DONE
5-Jewel Box--started this probably in about 2000--I really like it so want to finish it BAD!
6- Round Robin-brights
7- Feathered Tiles
8- Checkerboard Convergence
9- Rainbow Spiral (replacing Butterfly Blooms--it should be done before Christmas)--DONE
10-Totally Tubular-still in pieces. This one needs a lot of work.--DONE
11- Underwater - needs borders to finish the top, and then quilting like everything else.
12- Zippy Strippy

Sad to say I have more than this, but there is no way I  am going to finish more than one a month unless something drastic happens. If I finish all of these, it will be very good!

Other folks are working on UFOs in 2011, too. If you want to see what they are working on, check Judy's blog.

Dang - that's a lot of UFO's! I have every confidence in you though Mary, you'll get 'em done!

Isn't this going to be a fun challenge??? I think it's great that so many of us will be accountable for each other. I work well that way. I think with your #3 that you dislike so much, add a happy border or 2, quilt it with a super fun, funky backing and give it away with a smile on your face. Some one will love it to pieces!!
