2012 UFO Challenge:
For a couple of years I have participated in Judy's UFO challenge to finish one UFO a month. Some months were more productive than others, but this year I was able to finish 7 of my 12 UFO's that are listed in my side bar on the right of my blog:
*1 quilt (February's Hip Baby) was given away as a baby gift,
*4 quilts were given to the guild's comfort quilt project (January's Batik Cats, April's Layer Cake Quilt Along, June's Plaid Split 9 Patch, and July's D4P),
*and I am still enjoying 2 of them (March's Gold Stars, and May's Hexagon Honeycomb) at home.
*August's Sunflower quilt got it's border and then I completely "fell off the UFO wagon" when I got a second job.
SO...that leaves 5 UFO's from last year's list. Each one of those 5 have seen some progress and moved to the next stage closer to being completed, but are not quite done.
Other Finished Quilts:
*This is the list of my finished mini quilts: the Pink Lemonade Quilt Along, Pink Overload, Kaffe Konfetti, Spring Pinwheel, Bingo, Mini Twister, Mini 9 Patch, Bowls With Borders, Summer Stars Quilt Along, and Wicked Witch.
*I did finish a few larger quilts too: a batik scrap quilt that I bordered, quilted and bound for the guild comfort quilt project, a baby quilt for a friend's great niece, made a Tshirt quilt for my nephew, "Dotty For Kaffe", Mountain Trial, "Joy Spring" and my Dr. Seuss quilt (that was last year's New Year's Day mystery quilt).
Most Exciting Finishes:
I think my most exciting finishes were "Quilter's Blessings" which was hand embroidered, and hand quilted, and my 36 Patch Quilt Along which was also hand quilted. I was also very excited to get my Journey of a Quilter top pieced and the hand quilting started.
Block sampler quilts:
*stitched 12 blocks for the Quilt Square Quilt Along (this will go on the UFO list for next year).
*completed 42 blocks for my Civil War Sampler with Barbara Brackman.
*sewed 12 Knot blocks and participated in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.
Other Quilty Accomplishments:
*created Slow Sunday Stitching weekly blog link party (so fun!).
*purchased a 1901 Singer Treadle machine, learned how to treadle, and occasionally write a "Treadling on Tuesday" post.
*made a group quilt for a friend (Marj Hearts Kaffe).
*participated in three blog hops: Bowls with Borders, Dots on Dots, and Wicked.
WOW! That's a lot of stitching that went on!
Now...what's up for 2013?
I'll work on that list and let you know...Happy New Year!
