It’s that time of the year…assessing the old and starting out anew. That left me checking out my UFO list.
Up first…Blue Skies. This is from the String Fling book…. This UFO has gone from cut out to units all sewn and need to be sewn together.
Next up…Cheddar Bowties…This is from More Adventures with Leaders and Enders. I have about 1/3 of the blocks sewn. I have the border segments sewn too. No real progress was made on this.
Fair and Square I fantasize about. Kelli has her’s done and I love it. It’s been a long time favorite of mine. It’s in Scraps and Shirttails II. I started out as only white strips cut and have progressed to the point that the border pieces are sewn. The checkered blocks are sewn…all I have left are the string blocks.
Here is Pfefferneuse. Went from all cut out to top finished. This is in String Fling. It needs to be quilted.
Let’s not forget Pineapple Crazy…Also in String Fling. I have all of the center blocks done. I started on the outer border blocks but only two are done.
Here is Virginia Bound. That one has been at a stand still. I had run out of shirt strings…well I didn’t run out. I did run out of variety. Being I have LOTS more shirts cut up now, I could get back to this project. It is in Scraps and Shirttails I. I started this in Moline when we saw Bonnie. UPDATE: I have 10 more blocks done than I did before.
Rectangle Wrangle. I love this quilt. I adore this quilt. When I saw the book Scraps and Shirttails for the first time this is the quilt I most wanted to make. This UFO went from center pieces cut out to center sewn. I need to cut out the outer blocks yet.
This is Rick Rack Nines. It is in Leaders and Enders. This quilt went from some nine patches finished to completely finished.
Star Struck I started not to long ago. I’ve made good progress on it. It started as something I could work on over nap time. In the mornings before child care I’d get up early and sew. Then during nap time I’d cut the strips into segments. The blocks are all finished. I’m starting the sashing debate….it’s been stuck there. I have the border pieces cut and will start leader and ender sewing them soon.
Here is Santa Fe Star. I loved this quilt when I saw it in the book, String Fling, the first time and still do. The center and the geese are finished. I couldn’t find this for the longest time but then just found it about two weeks ago. I’m thinking I might move this one along after I finish Talkin’ Turkey.
Talkin’ Turkey I started WAY back when that block was in Quiltmaker’s 100 blocks before the book even came out. That’s in String Fling.
This one I’ve been working on. I almost have the blocks finished.
Here is Texas Braid. It’s in Leaders and Enders. This is a top and is waiting for a back and to be quilted.
Here’s Winston Ways. This has gone from not even being cut out to finished!! I’m so excited.
Hmmm….That was 16 projects. I did make progress in a way. Projects got finished but more got started. Four were completely finished…some were only started to be cut out. I’ve made LOTS of progress on others.
I also added one to the fold….Bricks in the Barnyard. The half square triangles are all sewn for that….next up block assembly. Also add two pink Zuckerwatte quilts.
That’s where I am on my UFO list. I started this list at the beginning of the Summer last year 2016. I’m still plugging away and working on things. Little by little every week a little more gets done. All of these get set aside because most of these projects are for me. You know how it goes as a quilter….the quilts we make for ourselves are always on the back burner. I’m having fun with these projects and in the end, that’s what is most important. I’m so lucky because I am still in love with each and every one of these projects!
