Judy at Patchwork Times sure does her best to keep us motivated, involved and sewing, doesn't she? She's been beating us up for three or four years to bust stash. She's providing a ton of gorgeous quilt patterns for us to sew up during Quiltathons and sew-alongs. And now she's insisting we bust our UFO stacks! I have it on good authority that she was a drill sergeant in another lifetime!
Just kidding, Judy! You know I love you more than my luggage! (Name that movie!)
Anyway, there's the new UFO Challenge 2011 that I am determined I'm going to do. I'm not linking very well tonight, but I snagged the click-on button that's over in my sidebar, towards the bottom. Just go over there and click on it and you'll get all the info you need. Please, do it! As Mom used to say ... let's hold hands and do it together. It won't hurt so badly that way!
I'm going to list a few UFOs here that I want to get finished up next year. I'll be changing around the order of them over the next week or so to accommodate my busy life at work the first few months of the year. But after a year of practically no sewing, I'm going to just do it!
1. Bears in the Barnyard -- figure out those pesky mitered borders.
2. Judy's star BOM - blocks are made. Assemble and finish.
3. Designer Mystery BOM from the Fat Quarter Shop. Was that 2008? 2009? That gorgeous Moda Peace on Earth fabric. Blocks are made. Assemble and finish.
4. Rabbits Love Embroidery by Bunnyhill Designs. Figure out appliqued scallops on borders.
5. All Things Christmas by Bunnyhill Designs. Figure out appliqued scallops on borders.
6. A New Day by Brenda Riddle at Acorn Quilts. Assemble and finish.
7. Borders and backing for Diagonal Four-Patch Medley.
8. Borders and backing for Heritage quilt. For my bed!!
9. Holly Jolly quilt -- take apart and fix the border I messed up.
10. Pennsylvania Dutch BOM - finish last two blocks. Assemble and finish.
11. Sweet Treasures BOM - Assemble and finish.
Well, that list obviously needs tweaking. It's amazing the amount of unfinished projects sitting around here, most of them just needing a final border. Like Jane says, when we get to that point, we know what the quilt looks like!
I'll come back later and add pictures - so I can remember what they are! :)
Okay, I'm committed! I hope you are, too!
