2012 UFO list

OK, I have to decide what I want on my list for this year. I'm going take a number of them from last year, and few new ones. Let's see...

1. The one block wonder quilt, it needs to be sandwiched and quilted...the top is already done.

2. The brights round-robin quilt. It is a wall hanging and the top is done.

3. The jewel box quilt...needs to  manicured and then sandwiched and quilted.

4. The stack n whack undersea quilt.

5. The Zippy Strippy stack n whack

6. Then there's this one..the Big Ezy. I like it and it's done. The block that shows as out of place here, is fixed. Didn't notice it but readers did, so I fixed it.

7. The dresden rainbow plates. Top is done, needs to be quilted.

8. This stack n whack 4 patch.

9. This one. I think I might add a border before I quilt it again. This is one I quilted with fleece, and then the fleece melted in the drier, so I took it off...unquilted it if you will.

10. this one is even pinned, just needs to be quilted (come on, Mary...get it together! :^)

11. This one needs about 1 hour more of work...I will get it done...I will!

12. the picture above is going to be Jack's Chain and the one to the right is Judy's peaches and dreams. I don't know if I'll get both tops done, but I like them both and at the moment I'm motivated.

UFO Report for 2011

So, I have four quilts done that weren't before, that's better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick. I also made a very involved wall hanging for our pastor, from nothing to done in 2 1/2 months. I made 3 quilts of valor from start to finish, and tops, tops, tops, 7 new tops,4 finished , not a good ratio. I also made 3 cord baskets, a professional tote and upholstered a couch. Below is what happened with the UFOs I listed for Judy Laquidara's UFO challenge. Some are going back on the list for next year.

1. Disappearing 9-patch swap quilt-done quilted and will be gifted this season. (one down)

2. One block wonder--this one still needs to be sandwiched and quilted. Didn't even touch it. It was sometime after June, I don't remember when, and that's when I fell off the wagon!

3.Brights round robin quilt--also waiting to be sandwiched and quilted. Also didn't touch it, though I know where it is!

4. Done, done done. I still have this in the closet, it may be gifted before the end of the year, too. Just don't know who to.

5. Not done, not touched. It needs to be pressed and all the threads trimmed from the back. I made this and used it as a duvet cover. Washed it once and decided it would fall apart if I used it again. I love it, and just need to do some manicuring on it, then sandwich and quilt.

6.Done, finished, gifted. I know when I give things away, they should be without strings, but I didn't even get a thank you for this. Ah well, I love it and enjoyed making it.

7. Another one I didn't touch. It only needed some kind of border, then to be sandwiched and quilted. It's just wall hanging size, so not too difficult.

8.Not touched. It was another that was towards the end of the year (well after June at least). It's wall hanging size and I need to decide what to do with it. I think it needs some kind of applique, but not too much. I think this will go on the list for next year. I could get pretty creative.

9. I was about done, and ready to finish it...just the borders to be done. I showed it to the recipient, and she asked if I could make it about 8 inches wider on each side so she could use it as a bed cover. That stumped me, so I've been avoiding it. I decided I will finish it as is, and she can buy something to put under it, but I just can't figure out how to make it wider without going insane.

10. I finished this and hated it (because of the pain in the butt it was to finish it), but I use it almost every day now when sitting at my computer. It's about the perfect size for putting over my lap to keep my legs warm, and because of all the seams it is warm!

11.I did end up getting the borders on this one, but now it needs to be sandwiched and quilted. I like it!

12. I didn't touch this one either. Probably going on the list for next year.
