UFO Challenge

So, over on Judy L.'s blog ( she is doing a UFO challenge, where once a month, she will pick a number 1-12, and we work on that UFO from our list, hopefully until it is done. I am going to give it a try. Of course I will have to work on other things also, but maybe this is a way to MAKE myself work on some of these. I might not get them done in the month, but if I stick with it, I will at least get a lot closer to being DONE with some of these projects that have been hanging around for a while. I am not going to count quilting, since I will do that as needed. I have no more space for finished quilts-yet. So, here it goes:
where to start?

#1-Homespun Charms-4 patches done, needs everything else!
#2-Morning Splash-Center done, needs borders (pic earlier on blog).

#3-Bill's Trip Around The World-Bill picked out the fabric. Strips are mostly made.
#4-Batik Circular-(looks like a cathedral Window)-some circles done, MANY more to go!
#5-Rhubarb Twist-(pic also earlier on the blog)-parts cut.
#6-Green and Purple Scrappy Toes-(Same as RWB one early on the blog!) strips cut.
#7-Sister's Choice-Strips cut
#8-Pinwheel Strings-Needs borders, one of them is a sawtooth....
#9-Shakespeare In The Park-this is it! Needs LOTS of work, probably one I won't get done in a month! But at least I will work on it! Fabric has been around for about 6 years as was the "plan". I still love it.
#10-Ancient History-parts cut. Free pattern from Andover, makes a 15" block. Only 12, so this should go fast! (Famous Last Words...Ha!)
#11-Carolina Christmas-most parts cut, some done.

#12-30's Pinwheels-blocks done, needs border blocks.

And as a Bonus-I got the HSTs for free, already done, so this is what I came up with. It was hard, since nothing was the same. 20-10" blocks-7 are done, do a border and donate. I will work on this if I get the others done for the month!

I still really like all of these, so that is good. It will make it easier. And yes, there are twice as much still there. Let the fun begin!


  1. Wow! You have a lot of great quilts to work on! Shakespeare in the Park is beautiful! Oh no, another one I want to do! Good luck!

  2. I like your philosophy that if not done, then closer to done or as patricia on our list would say, PH'Ds (partly done).

  3. Wow - what a good way to start. A month is not so long that you will get bored, but you will have a 'new project' every few weeks, so that will keep the creative ideas flowing. Good Luck!

  4. What a great list! I just joined the challenge and I'm looking forward to following along with everyone's challenge.

  5. Love your blocks! What a great idea to do one project a month. Sounds great. Can't wait to see your finished projects.


  6. Great choices, I love your tote stack. Very organized!
