I decided to join in over at The Joyful Quilters Summer UFO Challenge
. The goal is to pick at least 5 projects that you would like to get finished off by the last day of September. It sounds like as long as you finish ONE... you are good! Between the OMG and trying to actually finish
some quilts the second half of this year I figured I might as well throw in the hat and give it a shot!
Since technically a UFO - is an UnFinished Object..... I'm throwing in some I actually plan to work on this month... and a bunch of others in case the mood strikes (see, I learned from you Joy!).
1.) Umbrella Quilt - currently being hand quilted. ***Finished July 24,2020***
2.) Hoarfrost - Needs 3 snowflakes, to be pieced together and borders pieced and made. **Top completed July 2020.
3.) Cat and Mice - loaded on the frame to be quilted.
4) Save the Bees - I ***think I have 2 rectangles done, one in process and I don't know where the pattern for the bee is so I'll need to be creative. I do remember doing the hexagon part and I found the top right flower in process of being appliqued.
5) Midget Applique - blocks are together. I want to add an applique border onto the 5 inch yellow of some kind.
6) VQF quilt is a top
7.) 2018/19? RSC quilt.... yes the bottom right has been fixed. **Completed quilting and bound Aug 23.
8.) Baby boy magic stars/iSpy quilt. *** Finished July 12 ****
9.) Bittersweet Briar.... I have the kit and the book instructions. Will this be the time that I finally decide to work on it? It appears this one actually needs to be started to be included in the list..... So I'm going to start it by doing the first part - cut and sew the background square that the pretty applique will be added to this afternoon!
First cut made! It's officially started with the 40.5 inch background cut!
10) Hand Pieced Quilt Along. I think I want to add a blue border and hand quilt.
11.) Book Club - hand pieced this year.... so it will require hand quilting as well.
12.) Purple hearts need to become something!
The extremely sad part is I have a whole slew of other UFO's hanging around but we will see if maybe a few of these can get finished off in the next few months.
