As noted in the previous post, I was able to complete all 12 months of UFO Challenge's (except for one which I shelved to design a new back for). Six of these UFO's were entirely completed projects (as opposed to just a block), so that feels pretty good. And four of them were long term UFO's--so nice to have them finally finished!
|Entirely Finished in 2011!|
But in 2011, I started ELEVEN NEW PROJECTS! Good heavens--what was I thinking!?!! So much for the UFO Challenge helping me to finish things!
While I did finish the goals I'd set, I found the limited sew time I had after meeting my goals seemed to "encourage" me to start something new rather than drag out another UFO, and I obviously did just that!
So here is my collage to help me remember the 2011 and 2010 UFO's I need to continue to work on! (I'm not making any promises though)
Here's a listing of the photos above (left to right)
1. Courthouse Steps - blocks made
2. Maple Leaf Rag - pieces cut--barely started
3. Capriccio Too - barely started, just some leftover scraps used
4. Single Girl - strips cut, colors picked out
5. Strippling Vine - top completed, backing purchased, needs quilting
6. Portraits in My Garden - completed top, needs quilting
7. French General Reine des Abeilles - completed top, needs quilting
8. Flower Garden - 9/24 flower blocks completed, 0/4 borders
9. King George III - 2/13 blocks completed, 2 cut out
10. Coming Up Roses - squares cut out and piecing started
11. Hugs and Kisses - have begun sewing blocks together
12. Roseville Album (2010) - 10/13 blocks, 1/4 panels, 0/4 borders done
Yikes that's a bunch! Add to that at least 50 (? maybe more) other UFO's from the thirty odd years I've quilted off and on, and I'm not sure I'll live long enough.
Then there's the problem of all the tempting projects being shown daily in Blogland. I know there are several I won't resist this year. There are way too many groups making BOM's I'd like to participate in. One project that's sounding really tempting to me (at least today) is the Building Houses From Scraps project here.
And then there is the stack of new patterns just waiting to be made. Guess I better get to work--wish me luck!
