UFO Challenge update

Another UFO bites the dust!  Judy's pick for November I had swapped out for this Christmas block swap project that has been waiting a turn for several years.  My goal was to have a completed top and in the waning hours of the deadline the borders were attached.  The dark green pin dot border is an Essential Dots print from Moda.  They come in a very wide range of colors and I'm getting low on my favorites.

I must give my thanks to the Yahoo Group members of Quiltbiddies who made these blocks.  I believe this is the third project I completed this year from one of the swaps that we had in years past.  While I am still a member of the group I have not been active, essentially since I started my blog and got involved with all the wonderful folks in blogland, like Judy!  See more UFO busters on Judy's Patchwork Times.

Judy picked #4 for December, which I had already switched out.  I am left with only one number on my list, #8, the Moda Greenpiece BOM.  This BOM had four blocks per month, two pieced and two wool.  Since I was working 3 jobs at the time the BOM started, I barely made any progress.  I think I have four months of the pieced blocks completed and none of the wool blocks, though I do recall cutting the background squares for the wool blocks.  Time to get to tracing on freezer paper and cutting block pieces!

That green dot border makes a great frame for these blocks. You have a great holiday quilt there!
I love Essential Dots and have been sad as I use up some of my favorites. They have been so handy!

The border really frames the quilt nicely.

So will you be caught up with all of your UFOs after this month? :)
