I’ve been busy sorting through UFOs. Starting on Wednesday we’ll be hosting a “finish a UFO before Bonnie’s mystery quilt starts challenge”. That means I need to wrestle out my UFOs and decided which one I’m working on.
I’ve done this for two years and both years I finished a quilt and worked on a second quilt and got quite a bit further along on a second project. It’s been so nice to have the extra little push to finish something.
Your assignment for this week..pick a project then stop back here and share what you’re working on. I am working on a Bonnie Hunter quilt but if you know me, that doesn’t really narrow it down very much as almost every quilt I have in UFO status is a Bonnie Hunter quilt.
I’ve decided it would be a little too easy to just load up my lozenge quilt top and finish it…
It might be too easy to pull my Garden Party top and finish that…The top is together and ironed now. I need a backing though. But again..a little too easy.
Hmm…I have Virginia Bound started…but not very far along.
I have some that I don’t even know if they completely classify as a UFO as I haven’t sewn a stitch of them…
I had a blog reader send a Blue Ridge Beauty that’s half finished. She didn’t love it anymore and passed it on. Kelli and I thought it would make a great donation quilt so we saved it with the intention of finishing it.
This is Talkin’ Turkey and I think the string part of the quilt is finished but nothing else. That might be a challenge.
I also have ALL of the projects that I started last December….
Cheddar Bow Ties….
Four Patch X….
Rick Rack Nines….
Santa Fe String Star…..
Oh…and don’t forget my Pineapple Crazy. That I’ll never be able to finish so I’m not trying that for sure.
Can you believe I have one more too. It is the closest to completion not counting the finished quilt tops….so I think I should pick it….Grand Illusion. I am hoping under this pile is some type of instructions….This might be interesting. I know at one point I was trying to decide if I was going to leave it the way it was designed or play with it. I guess that’s my job over the next week. I’ll be making some decisions and getting this baby closer to finished.
Can I admit that I’m secretly hoping this will go together quickly and then I can move on to another one of the UFOs? I have so many that I’d just love to see finished.
I have to say I do have a bit of an advantage over many people when it comes to UFO projects. I love each and every one of mine.
So pick a project and come back here and link it up or write in the comment section what you’ll be working on. Whoot-whoot!! Just think….nine weeks of UFO sewing. In nine weeks we can really make LOTS of progress. Check in and share your progress each Wednesday. Bonnie’s mystery typically starts on the Friday after Thanksgiving. How about we have the final show of finished quilts here on December 2nd. The Wednesday after the mystery starts. That will give us all just a little extra time to put in the final stitches.
