UFO Challenge 2012

My participation in Judy's Patchwork Times UFO Challenge 2011 was enjoyable but spotty.  Of the 12 quilts on my list, there were four complete finishes (see the page for updates).  I did work on all of the quilts except for two that were not touched at all in the middle of "Wedding Central" time.  All of these quilts were for ME, and I worked on gift quilts and projects every month as well, so I didn't disappoint anyone but myself by not finishing them :)  It is my dream, however, to have a stack of finished quilts of my very own, so in joining the 2012 UFO Challenge, there will be some repeats.  

1.  Judy's Mystery Quilt--The center of the top is complete.  Needs borders, backing assembled (already purchased), quilting and binding.
2.  Caramel Blues--The center of the top is complete.  Needs borders, backing assembled, quilting and binding.
3.  Cheddar and Cinnamon--The top is completed.  Needs backing, quilting and binding.
4.  Any Witch Way--Two small quilts.  One top is complete. Letters for names are pieced for the second, which needs to be completed, then both quilted and bound.
5.  Patriotic Fields Doll Quilt--Sandwich completed.  Awaiting hand-quilting and binding.
6.  Yuletide Blessings--Sandwich completed.  Needs quilting and binding.
7.  9 patch Quiltbuddies--Cut setting squares, assemble top, add borders.
8.  Greenpiece BOM--Some blocks completed.  Make remaining pieced blocks and all wool blocks, assemble tree medallion.
9.  Table runners--Two table runners.  Baby Boxes needs borders, backing, quilting and binding.  Party Time needs the applique stitched down, backing, quilting and binding.
10.  Jewel Box--Make 32 additional jewel box blocks to make a throw sized top.  Assemble top. 
11.  Quiltbuddies Christmas block swap:  Cut sashing and cornerstones, assemble top.
12.   Double pink and brown/tan 9 patch blocks--Make X's and O's small quilt.

Looking forward to having more finishes in 2012!  Thank you Judy for having the Challenge again.

I'm going to try to get mine done again this year too. I only got a few done last year. Started getting behind on my very first one as I couldn't find fabric to finish some of the blocks with. We only have a joanns and I still have not got that fabric yet. LOL Maybe this year I'll get it done.

I had a hard time coming up with 12...and then I realized it's because I don't HAVE 12 UFO's! LOL! Still, it's going to be a bit of a challenge and I like setting a goal, so I have something to aim for. You've got a nice list put together and it will be fun to watch these projects come to pass!! :)

I'm with you on the spotty participation in 2011...and a lot of the same UFO's on next year's list. I'm ok with it cuz it made me aware of some of the projects I have outstanding. Of course there is also the box of "kits" I made before I moved back to NY when I didn't know if I would like the fabric here. I guess it's time to take apart some kits or maybe add them to a monthly list so they get used as well. It might be time for a little cleaning in the studio...

Oh yeah, I was spotty too. Some months I just didn't even sew. I did finish up 3 and I'm happy with my progress. So I'm back in it again. Good luck and have fun working on your quilts. I'll be cheering you on!

Impressive list, Annie! I'll look forward to seeing all of them next year ;>)

Looks like a good list. I'm still deciding if I'm going to play along or not. I only have 4 or 5 UFO's.
