I didn’t do the best last month with my Dirty Dozen UFO Challenge. I didn’t fully finish a single quilt. That is not how I want to be doing with this challenge. So last week, I told you about a big push I did…
I finished this…
The top picture is from when I was quilting it on the frame and below is when I finished it.
…and here is when it was completely finished. I talked about that in THIS POST.
I absolutely love this quilt…I am so happy to add this one to the finished list. Just having this finished was totally worth doing the Dirty Dozen UFO challenge.
This was the #3 project which was the August number.
The September number was #11. I didn’t get that one done in September. It’s still covering my sewing area. I need to just apply myself and finish it!!
But…October rolled around and my Civil War Tribute top is a #6. It only needs to be quilted. I’m so glad I put it on the list. I thought I’d do it without needing to put it on the list…but I hadn’t and I was SUPER happy to tackle it as I didn’t need to sew a thing. All of my other projects have been almost start to finish projects. It’s so nice to have an easy one.
I put this one on the machine and bound it last week. I finally got around to taking pictures and plan to show it to you all finished on Friday. I’m so thrilled to have this finished!!
So what are my other Dirty Dozen UFOs?
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…but I don’t think this one is moving to the top of the list as I have this project….
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’m thinking I’m going to do a “sew along with me” video. A lot of cross stitchers so a stitch along with me video. I thought I might try a quilting version and do a sew along with me. You can see how I’m making the blocks and join along with me. No pattern is needed….Just a box of scraps. Doesn’t that sound fun?
I’m excited to give it a try!! So watch for that coming up too. As this is not a pattern yet, I have no idea the size or what the layout will be…I guess you’ll have to just watch and see if it is something you might enjoy doing.
If you’re keeping track, I have seven of the 32 UFO projects done…I started in June so I guess that’s not to bad. I’m hoping I might get another finished this month. We’ll see.
I love having the Dirty Dozen UFO challenge. It really keeps me on task and moving forward even if it feels like some months, I’m really slow.
