Actually, I found it motivating to get each project out of the closet, touch it, and admire it....there are some fun quilts here! Look...
1. Fortunate Friends...I've been working on this quilt for a few months now alongside my friend, Vicki. The top is close to being complete. Course, I gotta quilt it, too!
2. Mazed...The blocks, made as leader/enders while piecing other quilts, are complete. It was on my design wall once, but my grand-daughter "helped" by taking it all down!
I look forward to playing with the parts again and finishing this quilt that can be put together several different ways!
3. Orange and Aqua Sampler... The blocks for this quilt were collected during two quarters last year, from members of the 3X6 Mini Sampler Bee. As you can see, I've kept them in the envelopes they were mailed in,
for reasons that I don't recall.
4. Postage Stamp...There is a BIG stack of these 16-Patch scrappy blocks... enough to make a full size quilt. I made them as leader/enders. It took a whole year. Why did I stop there? Beats me. I do know that I''ll loooooovvve this quilt!
5. Crossroads....Another set of blocks collected from a Bee.....this time from some members of the Kansas City Modern Quilt Guild. In 2011. I think. I made this quilt once before and it is now gracing the bed of a sweet girl in Rwanda. I loved it so much, that I decided that I'd love to have my own. The blocks need put together and quilted. I might need to make it a bit larger.
Aqua, grey, red, pink....yum!
6.Birds... Oh, boy. I may detect a theme of procrastination here with Bee blocks! Here's another set of gorgeous blocks from the One Block Over Bee, all with that cute bird print for the centers. One member never completed her blocks, but fortunately, she mailed the fabric back to me last month...a year later!
I'm looking forward to working with these again!
7. Paint Dipped...Remember this one? All it needs is quilting and binding.
8. Batman...The top is complete...just waiting for more Kona coal for a border and then I can quilt it. February is my deadline on this one!
9. 1600 Inch Race... The backing is picked and just needs pieced together, then I can start the quilting on this simple quilt. It was pieced during a quilter's retreat last spring using a jelly roll of Denyse Schmidt's Flea Market Fancy.I wish that these nine quilts were the the sum of my UFO's. They aren't. If I finish them, or even some of them, in the next 3 months, I'll add a few more from my seemingly endless supply of unfinished projects. Nine is plenty for now....after all, I do have some new starts to work on as well, you know!!
Lynne is also getting on the Finish it in 2013 bandwagon by sponsoring another UFO group. I'm linking up with her, as well! Join me?
