UFO Challenge List

UFO Challenge 2012

This year, I've decided to join  2012 UFO Challenge at Patchwork Times .  I found Judy Laquidara's blog last year, but it was too late to join in.

I love challenges, so I'm hoping to get most of these done and off my list.

The idea is to list 12 quilts and on the first of each month Judy will pick a number and the UFO that corresponds to that number is the one that will be finished that month.

After searching through my closets, storage boxes, etc. I found so many UFOs (unfinished projects) it was hard to pick only 12 .  They are now all rounded up on a couple of shelves and a few boxes.

I decided to break them down into large, medium, and small sizes, so I would not end up with all large projects every month. I chose some I would like to work on, some that can be given away and some I thought had been in hiding forever and should come out of the closet.

So, here is my list:

1 – Blue Log Cabin

This has been around a long, long time and I just want to get it done. It is king size and it will be long arm quilted. I have to prepare a back, have it quilted, label and bind it. Measures 106” x 106”.

2 – Sampler

I have several sets of sampler blocks that I made while teaching my Sampler Classes so it would be great to get another one finished. I have an idea for the setting for this one, so this one it is. 15 – 12” blocks are completed, one to finish piecing.

3 – Brown Pinwheel 

Top is made, needs borders and everything else. Measures 40” x 50” without borders.

4 – White Blocks

These are blocks that I had totally forgotten about. I'm pretty sure these were made as part of a Mystery Quilt from a magazine. Probably from the early or mid '90s, I started quilting in 1988. There's all kinds of pieces cut out and 18 blocks made , some cotton, some polyester. This one should be interesting. 10” blocks

5 – Going in Circles

Finish quilting, and bind.
This one is almost done, it's been a stop and go quilt for years. 
Measures 36” x 36”.

There's even a label stitched in, reads 2007, and I know that's just when I got to the quilting. Had good intentions.

6 – Advanced Sampler

These are 6 of the 12 blocks, all are finished. Needs to be set, quilted, labelled and bound. 12” x 12” blocks. These blocks were made when teaching, see Original Advanced Sampler here.

7– Strippie

This was a guild project where a strip was made each month. All the strips but 2 are liberated blocks (no patterns). It needs to be set, quilted, labelled and bound. Strips measure 30” long.


8 - Mine Shafts

Not sure what I do with this one. Needs quilting and binding. Measures 33” x 43”.

O Tattenbaum III,  IV and V

There were four of these and they were originally going to be part of a table topper, but have already made one into a small wall hanging. Will finish these individually as wall hangings or cushions. These blocks measure 13” x 13”. See O Tattenbaum I and II here.

9 - O Tattenbaum V
O Tannenbaum V
10 - O Tattenbaum III (as above)

11 - O Tattenbaum IV(as above)

Good luck! You've got some very pretty projects to work on. Is the Going In Circles an original design? I love it!
