This morning I told you about the quilts I finished for the last Dirty Dozen UFO challenge.
In this post, I’m going to show you the UFOs that didn’t get to the finish line…and I’ll tell you if I added any UFOs to the list.
This one is a top…sort of. I have the center section done.
This is the original quilt….
But..when Kelli and I were in Moline for a quilt retreat with the Mississippi Valley Quilters years ago, I saw this one that June did….this…
It’s applique around the outside. I think I want to do something like this. She had awesome quilts for the show and tell.
I love the look and like the challenge of trying something a little out of my box.
2-Hawaiian Sunset- I had so hoped I would finish this one…alas.
If you’re a long-time blog reader, you know I’ve wanted to do this for YEARS.
3-Garlic Knots- I did make a few more of these blocks last year but not many.
Several years ago a blog reader gifted me a bunch of batik scraps. All were on the small side. About the same time, Bonnie Hunter was making this quilt, Garlic Knots. I thought the batiks would be perfect.
So over nap time over the course of a week or two, I cut out this quilt. It sat and then… last fall I sewed about 10 of the blocks together, then it got put away again. It’s time to get it out and finish it.
4-Floribunda- I haven’t touched this.
This is Bonnie Hunter’s quilt: I have most everything here to make this. I collected floral scraps over the years. There was enough for me and Kelli to make the quilt. Kelli ended up taking the fabric and cutting strips for us both.
That’s as far as the quilt got.
It supposed to look like this. (Picture from Bonnie’s blog) The free pattern for this quilt is HERE.
5-Oregon or Bust- Last year I cut up the shirts needed for this but didn’t make any progress in getting it cut out.
This is another Bonnie Hunter quilt. It’s from the book Scraps and Shirttails II. I have long wanted to make this ever since I found Mary from Country Threads version.
I collected shirts for several years as Mary’s version was made with only blue and orange 100% cotton upcycled shirts and I wanted to make mine like hers. I am in love with Mary’s version. I have the shirts deboned but that’s as far as I am. I can’t wait to make this!!
6-Sofie’s Quilt- I haven’t touched this.
This is a quilt of a friend of mine. They found it in grandma’s cedar chest. I’m really nervous about this and just need to quit worrying and try.
I LOVE the design. I’d like to replicate this quilt.
7-Sugar Bowl- I haven’t touched this.
This is another FREE Pattern from Bonnie Hunter you can find HERE.
I have some strips cut but that’s about it. This finished quilt (Picture from Bonnie’s blog) suppose to look like this….
This is a free Quilted Twins pattern. This is a 100% cotton recycled quilt. (Find the pattern HERE)
Kelli just made on in all blues…
This quilt would go together quickly. I seriously need to just sit down and finish it.
9-I have scrap vortex that I started- It’s the project in the bag on the left in the photo below. Some asked what Scrap Vortex is. You can find more about it HERE. Scroll to the bottom..it was a quilt along. I haven’t touched this.
10-I have this project in the basket on the right, with the red square in the middle. I’d really love to finish that up. It was so fun to make. I haven’t touched this.
11-Double Wedding Ring Quilt
I hope to get to this soon. I want this finished.
This is how it was. It’s a top now. That last seam is sewn…and I found that binding fabric but that’s as far as I am. Some progress even if only a little.
This has been lingering since 2019. It’s time.
12-These were started back in January of 2020….
I have an idea for this that was sparked after a blog reader shared her quilt. We’ll see where it goes from here. An idea is a start!!
Those are the carryovers from last year. As you can see, many of them are only cut out and some not even that far. That makes for a lot of sewing to finish these.
Amazingly, I really don’t have any carryovers for this year. YES, I have projects I am currently working on but I don’t think they really fit a UFO category. I think I’ll list them here so that I remember them and don’t let them end up on next year’s UFO list:
2-Red Sampler Quilt Along
3-Batik Charm Square
My plans for this year include working on some of the UFOs but I really don’t expect to get them all finished. With childcare, cross stitching, and gardening, I don’t have as much quilting time as I used to have. Also, I have some other projects that are really calling my name. I want to make more quilts from the book Scrap School.
I’d like to make Bonnie Hunter’s new quilt pattern called Bitcom too.
There is never any worry that I won’t have something to sew…
Do you have UFO or quilting plans for the upcoming months?
