UFO Challenge 2011

I've decided to join Judy's UFO Challenge for 2011! I'm excited to work on these projects that keep being pushed aside. I don't plan on finishing them all, most of them, some of them I just hope to make significant progress on.

1. This is a BOM by the Garden State Quilters. They only have 5 of the 9 blocks online right now. 
Goal: Complete what blocks have been posted.

2. Dresden Plate Quilt from Material Obsession. I am only going for lap size (4 x4), and I am going to use yellow instead of white for the background. I have already started cutting out the pieces for the dresden plates. 
Goal:  Finish piecing the top. 

3. Glow Happy by I bought the fabric on a Cyber Monday deal. You can get the pattern, here.
Goal: Completely finish.

4. Lantern Bloom. This was in the Spring issue of Fons & Porter's Easy Quilts this year. So far I have only picked fabrics for it.
Goal: Have top pieced and ready for quilting.

5. Snowbound. This was the BOM by Bunny Hill Designs this year. I have 7 more blocks to applique and embroider. The chain blocks are complete.
Goal: Completely finish.

6. Use these fabrics to make a basket quilt for myself. I designed the wallhanging myself since I only have small amounts of some of the fabrics and had to design around them.
Goal: Completely finish.

7. Avalon. Another quilt from Material Obsession. These are fabrics I have selected so far. This quilt may end up being a gift.
Goal: Completely finish.

8. Patchwork Panache. This was a free BOM pattern at Block Central. This quilt is completed, just waiting to be quilted. 
Goal: Completely finish.

9. Rock Mosaic. Use some of my rock fabrics to make the quilt pictured in the center. I've been wanting to make this quilt for awhile and have kept pushing it aside. I can hardly wait to make it.
Goal: Completely finish.

10. Bow-tie Flower Garden. This is a quilt I designed myself. It needs stems and leaves appliqued on, and then quilted. I think it needs a good ironing too.
Goal: Completely finished.

11. Rainbow swap. These are the blocks that I received in the one and only swap I participated in. I have already picked some fabrics to go with them, just need to put them all together.
Goal: Completely finish.

12. String Quilt. I am half way done this quilt. I planned on making 6 more rows. I have all the foundation blocks cut and have most of the strings ready, just need to do it.
Goal: Completely finish.

Thanks for the challenge Judy! I can't wait to get started.


  1. I really love the fact that you've not only listed each project with a picture -- but also added your final goal.

  2. i can't wait to see what the rainbow quilt looks like!
