I think they are really creative...especially the one on the right, which has great detail!
I have been pondering making a list of my UFO's, as many of my fellow bloggers have bravely done (go look at Meredith's list). But I know that would be too time consuming, overwhelming and probably discouraging for me. In 2005 I started a list (didn't dig too deep) and came up with over 50 UFO's. I made a short list of 12 projects to work on and by the end of the year had finished 7 of them. In 2006, I made another short list of 9 and finished 3 of those. I did like having this list to keep me somewhat focused, and might try to do that some time this week.
I thought it might be more fun to review my accomplishments for 2007 and here is a summary of what I accomplished:
Mini Quilts - Abstract Challenge: finished 3 pieces ("family", "country", and "orange" themes)
Paper Pieced Mystery blocks completed: 3 blocks sewn (still just at block stage)
Mini Quilts - 7
Wallhangings - Pieced 56 blocks and quilted Guild President's Challenge by the deadline
Pieced and Quilted the Spring Shop Hop banner
Baby Quilts - 2 finished and given away
Lap Quilts - 2 for nieces; pieced and quilted Christmas Quilt (made of 80 HST blocks)
Mystery Quilts - 3 tops completed (2 sizes from Quiltaholics spring mystery and 1 from fall)
Charity Quilts - made blocks for the UFO group quilt last year and blocks for this year's
- Assembled blocks and quilted one guild BOM quilt; quilted a second BOM quilt
Classes - took 3 classes this year - a Quilted Vessel class with Christine Ford, a Bead making class with Judith Eckhardt, and a Paper Piecing class with Denise McKenna
Teaching - Taught 23 local quilting classes
Other quilting highlights:
-attended a 2 night/3 day quilt retreat; attended Quilt Festival, where 3 of my quilts were displayed; lectured at at the Georgian Quilt Guild; lectured and taught at the Orillia Quilt Guild; made a halloween costume for my son (no quilting involved but lots of sewing); hand embroidered and sewed 10 pillows for Christmas; went on 2 Shop Hops
Ongoing projects started in 2007:
1)Bead Journal Project - finished 4 months so far
2) Journey of a Quilter - finished stitching 4 1/2 blocks
3) 365 Quilt - finished 8 months
It was a very busy and fun quilty year! I look forward to continuing my ongoing projects and finishing some of my UFO's from previous years. I would really like to get my scrap management system improved. The problem being that once I start playing in the scraps, I get distracted and start making things instead of organizing...click here to see the last time I tried!
Well, I better get going on making some supper, and retrieving the children from their friends' homes. This is the view I enjoy from my kitchen window this week...takes me longer to cook when I keep gawking out the window!!
Happy Quilting in 2008!
