Fall UFO 2022 Challenge

It's that time of the quarter - to post the UFO list for the Challenge. I was very productive in the Summer quarter and got to remove 7 projects from the list! I added a couple of block collections I have been adding to this year with the RSC 2022. I am hoping for 5 finishes this quarter (mostly finishing up the RSC2021+2022 collections!). Wish me luck.

 Block Collections.

1.) I know I have at least one more cut somewhere to fill that open spot for a 7x6 setting. These are hand pieced.... and might need a little fixing along the way on some of those middle joins.

 2.) Hexagon flowers on a black background. These are a stack of blocks I hand pieced a few years ago then hand appliqued to the black background a couple years after that!  Not sure if they will become one or two quilts....

3.) Midget Applique quilt from Sentimental Stitches. I need to add more flowers and leaves and the vines... and the bottom yellow border. This one is completely hand pieced.

4.) Ella Maria Deacon blocks - make a few more and finish them off into a top. I believe I was making these by hand. Patterns from Sentimental Stitches.

5.) Purple applique hearts... need to figure out how they want to be set. They think they want a nine patch alternate block in a white and solid purple. I'm not sure if I should listen to them?

6.) Midget block collection - I started these in Vermont in 2010! I have a light blue for sashing.

7.) Civil War Blocks

8.) Birds in the Air block collection

9.) Harmony - hand pieced project started March 2021- one 28 inch block completed - 3 to go.

10.) Erin's Butterfly - I made the wings in 2021.  Need to add one more set of wings... thinking 9 is a nice number?

11.) Garden Path blocks - a few more got added last quarter. missing light green. I made 2 orange during the orange month.

12.) Full Stop Sew along.... 2021 . Re thinking this one - might eliminate some of the white space and make a few more of some.....

13) extra strips from a quilt that might become a mini 'coin' type quilt? Or placemats?

14.) Crossed canoe blocks from RSC2022 ** Completed 10/23/2022.

15.) 16 patch blocks from RSC2022

16.) Brimfield Awakening EPP. I did start this and have the first fabric thread basted in purple!

Quilt Tops: 
17.) Cat and mouse is on the frame in process of hand quilting but has been sadly neglected.

18.) Vermont Quilt Festival Booth Hop from either 2008 or 2009.  it is 71x71.

19.) Green Tumblers - a hand pieced top. 

20.) Hoarfrost - top is done ** blue floral print backing cut for it.

**21.) Baby Bear Paw quilt top. Made back from a class in 1999 I think from Yankee Pride.  Hand quilting started 9/27/22.

22.) Trip around the World - 2 inches hand pieced. 60x60.

23.) Y2K Joann's BOM - quilt top

24.) 1857 Quilt Along Top

25.) Spring Hexagons - not sure if this wants to be bigger or not.... 

26.) Triple Irish Chain - green. 80x80 I think. I did find both fabrics extra with it... Might need a green or cream border first or both... Made in the early 2000's. circular feathers in open spaces.

Found a few more and added to the list on Oct 7 before the close time!
27.) mostly cut out and some 9 patches are made. Hehe... from the first quilting book I had and made a quilt from. Introduction to Quilting 101 - the basics by Sharon Hultgren. I think this was Sunrise Surprise! The four patch from this book is at my Mom's hanging over a crib still!

28.) I forgot I had this. It is a cute birdhouse wall hanging but is foundation pieced, which I dislike. Maybe I can deal with it enough to get this done? Or rework it?

29.) This is a kit I purchased mid-90s - butterfly's. I think all the parts are there and I did start arranging them.

Only 26 unfinished quilts. Wish I had so few. Good luck choosing which ones to complete. As Gretchen always says, choose the ones closest to completion ti finish first. Glad to hear the storm moved away from your area.

So many wonderful projects; so many hand-pieced projects! I have that problem too with the 8 points star; the middle is not always pretty. I've concluded that I'm not very good at hand-piecing but if it happens to you too, well, maybe, I'm not so bad. Congratulations on finishing 7 projects in the last quarter. I can't even finish 7 in a year, haha. Great job all over, Deb. Enjoy! ;^)

I don't know how you do it. You work, have two kids and a husband to deal with, a household and you still sew circles around me. All I can do is applaud you for your determination and diligence. Bravo.

That’s a nice “healthy” list of UFO’s. And there’s so much variety that I don’t think you’ll get bored! Good luck on finishing another 8 in this last quarter. Oh, wait. Holidays. OK, OK, how about 5? LOL.
