Patchwork Times UFO Challenge

Procrastination is part of my makeup.....not the type we put on our face, but the makeup of our being. I always admired quilters who actually finished projects, but I have many, many unfinished quilt related projects. So I am going to join Judy of Patchwork Times UFO challenge. One finish a month done by the number listed and drawn each month.

So here is my list. Some are easy to finish,binding and label, but others will require planning, much sewing and maybe by the end of the year they will be done. I am doing this from memory, because I can not get to the containers tonight and still make the dead line for posting.

Here is my list:

1. Make a quilt using the red and white basket blocks.
2. Bind the red/white/blue Lover's Knot.....ignore the quilting as it was my first
time to use a quilting machine and it has polyester batting.
3. Quilt,bind and label green baby quilt.
4. Finish quilting, bind and label twin retreat quilt.
5. Remember Me Baby Quilt. Four blocks are complete, two blocks just need circles
and three need to be appliqued. Want to complete the quilt.
6. Finish portable ironing board cutting mat carrier.
7. Finish or give away oriental lady applique.
8. Finish piecing, quilting, binding and label Layne's quilt.
9. Finish cat quilt.
10.Finish original design quilt with the brown, gold and yellow green quilt. I know it
sounds awful, but it isn't.
11. Piece quilt in box 1.
12. Piece quilt in box 2.

Eleven and twelve are already cut and some of the piecing is finished. I don't remember the patterns, but they are scrappy and were from an exchange with a quilt group.

Wow! I know this is very ambitious, but I want to finish or get rid of items that I no longer want.
