2014's UFOs

A slightly reduced list from the last two years. Eventually, I'll get all of these finished!

UFO #1  - This is my 2010 Pizza Box blocks from Dogwood Quilt Guild. Two of the members, knowing how cat crazy I am, machine appliqued cats for me. My instructions on this project told everyone to make any sized blocks out of a selection of batiks. I have 12 blocks, so I'll need to make a few more (more cats, now that I know how to applique?). To do: add blocks and borders, make backing, quilt, bind, label.

UFO # 2 - For my 2011 Dogwood Quilt Guild Pizza Block, I asked for uniform 12 1/2" blocks. I usually ask for blocks of different sizes in my pizza boxes, but since I usually get 12 1/2" blocks anyway, I decided not to fight it. I also limited the number of fabrics I provided and did not allow for additional fabrics to be added. I requested some of the yellow floral in each block. I love these blocks! To do: add blocks and borders, make backing, quilt, bind, label.

UFO # 3 - This quilt top is a sister to one one that I made using a different focal fabric. I used the same coordinating fabrics in both. The green sashing is different in the two quilts as well. I need to decide what I want to do about borders add applique to the borders. To do: border (done 07/12), applique (decided against applique), make backing, quilt (done 04/13), bind, label.

UFO # 4 - This group of pieces will one day be a gorgeous wall hanging. I took a class at Sager Creek two years ago, and this is as far as I got on the project. I rarely get to take classes since I work full-time, but I made the time for this one. Unfortunately, I badly injured my foot just days before the class, and I was on crutches. I couldn't stand, and I could barely sew. I kept the instructions, so one day, hopefully this year, I can get this finished. To do: everything!

UFO # 5 - Here is another quilt made with the 7" exchange blocks from my Eureka guild friends. I started this quilt about three years ago using another free Stash Pot Pie pattern from Sager Creek. I combined my purple exchange squares with a white confetti background. To do: make more blocks, add border, make backing, quilt, bind, label.

UFO # 6 - This is a polka-dot quilt that I made for my niece. She hated it. I guess the yellow border was just too much for her. Anyway, now that I know how to applique, I am going to applique large and small "dots" all over the top beginning in one of the corners. I already have the backing for it. To do: applique dots, quilt, bind, label.

UFO # 7 - This block is another free pattern from our Stash Pot Pie days a few years ago. I used four blocks sashed in purple and four blocks sashed in green to make a reversible wall hanging. Jennifer from Just Jennifer bought it at our quilt show small quilt auction in 2009. I used these three blocks for a table runner. To do: make backing, quilt, bind, label.

UFO # 8 - Both of these pictures are blocks using fabrics from my 2009 Dogwood Pizza Box exchange. The top photo shows blocks of various sizes (and shapes!) made by our guild members. The lower photo is small (4 1/2") blocks I made to go along with the larger blocks. The challenge of this quilt is to integrate all of the different sizes, shapes, and styles of blocks into one quilt. What fun! To do: create more blocks, design and complete top, sew backing, quilt, bind, label.

UFO # 9 - I forget the name of the book this pattern comes from -- I"ll have to look it up. The pattern is a bargello, so no wonder it's taking so long. I couldn't decide which color to use for the rings, so I used them all! I have a beautiful batik border picked out for this quilt. To do: finish blocks, add border, quilt, bind, label.

UFO # 10- My signature blocks! My friends! After chairing the Q.U.I.L.T. of NWA quilt show for six years (three bi-annual shows), I stepped down in April of 2011 to make way for fresh blood and new ideas. As a thank you, the guild members gave me and my co-chair (Mom) signature blocks. Mine are in brights and Mom's are batiks. What great choices to match our preferences. Mom just showed me her completed signature block quilt, and it's beautiful! I guess that means that I need to get started on mine. I won't be able to come up with a setting nearly as creative and beautiful as Mom's (I'll try to post a picture of hers). I need to give some thought to a setting that will do these wonderful friends justice. To do: design setting for top, add borders, make backing, quilt, bind, label.


UFO # 11 - This is one of the Christmas quilts I make just before Christmas 2012. It's a variation of a free Stashbusters pattern. To do:  make backing, quilt, bind, label.

UFO # 12 - This is my Day and Night pattern by Eleanor Burns. I started it at a class at Guthrie Quilts in Colcord, OK, summer of 2012. It is almost finished, but I got distracted by other projects and abandoned it. Time to finish it for 2012! To do:  finish blocks, add borders, make backing, quilt, bind, label.

UFO # 13 - This is another quilt that I started summer of 2012. I think Callie has claimed it. This is a Farmer's Market pattern. To do:  finish blocks, add borders, make backing, quilt, bind, label.
UFO # 14- I fell in love with the Mexican pinata pattern of this Hobby Lobby fabric. I started the quilt in 2010 or 2011. I have the entire top made except for adding the borders. I want to make a lozenge border for this. To do:  add borders, make backing, quilt, bind, label.
UFO # 15 I won these pre-cut fabrics as a door prize a few years ago. The quilt top hung in the shop for about a year after it was finished. I am machine quilting this quilt and have very little left to do to get it finished. To do:  quilt outer border, bind, label.

UFO # 16 This is one of my very first quilts. I am hand quilting it, but it's hard to see the markings on some of the colors, so it's taking me longer than it should. To do:  finish hand quilting, bind, label.

UFO # 17 Another early quilt just waiting for me to finish the hand quilting.To do:  finish quilting butterflies, finish hand quilting borders, bind, label.

UFO # 18 An African inspired quilt top I made, again, several years ago. To do: finish hand quilting, binding, label.
UFO # 19  A simple quilt that is almost finished. It's been in hiding for years. To do:  finish machine quilting, binding, label.
UFO # 20  This is a quilt that is intended for my aunt and uncle. To do:  Finish top, quilting, binding, and label.  
UFO # 21  This is the first quilt that I ever started. It is a crazy patch quilt that needs to be finished soon! To do:  lots more embellishments, lots more seam stitching, tying, label.
