It’s that time again.
Last year I participated in Judy’s UFO Challenge. Sort of. I have issues following other people’s rules, especially when it comes to my own creative expression. By the second half of the year I gave up pretending to work on the UFO that Judy picked, but I still worked on UFOs.
So if I felt that way, why am I signing up for another round?
Because I finished SEVEN UFOs last year. Four were on my challenge list. Three weren’t. I also started and finished three other quilts this year, for a total of ten quilts. Given everything else that happened in my life last year, that’s downright miraculous.
Keeping my attention on those UFOs made a huge difference. And since it worked, here’s my list for next year:
1. Heart quilt. I’m working on this now and haven’t posted it yet.
2. The Still Life, from the Esterita Austin class in 2011.
3. The Poppy quilt, from the Lenore Crawford class in 2010.
4. Snippet Butterfly, my oldest UFO from 2000. No, that’s not a typo.
5. The Bell quilt, currently in process.
6. Retro Charm. I finished the top over two years ago and still need to quilt it.
7, 8 &9. The 2009 Applewood Farms BOM because sometimes a girl just need to piece. This one will take more than one month.
10 & 11. Two donated charity tops that need quilted and bound.
12. The stamped cross stitch kit I’m working on now. It isn’t a quilt, but I WILL finish it next year and start something else out of the “kit drawer”.
Maybe I’ll work on these or maybe I’ll work on some of the others, but either way I’ll work on UFOs.
To see all other lists posted by the challenge participants, pop on over to Judy’s blog. It’s great fun to look at pictures of other people’s quilts.
