Updated on May 29th! I finished two quilts on the list!!
I started the year determined to work on UFO’s. I have done this for the last two years but as the year wore on and garden and lawn work kicked in, my determination waned. I started playing along with Country Threads UFO project. Each month they pick a number and we try to finish that numbered quilt. I made TWO lists with the hope that I would finish the designated quilt on the first list and start the quilt on the second list. That was a good theory but hasn’t worked every month.
Here are the three UFO’s I’d like to keep at the top of the list…
Hand Me Downs…This is finished now. You can see it here.
Cactus Patch…This is now finished. You can see it here.
Odds and Ends…
If you look at the list, many of the quilts have a “P” in front of them. That means progress has been made on those quilts since the beginning of the year so there is actually a lot more happening than it looks like. Quilts that say “ready to quilt” means that they have a backing together and are ready for the quilting machine.
This year I am trying to keep my momentum so when Judy of Patchwork Times suggested having a UFO parade today, I jumped in.
Here’s my list from the beginning of the year that has been updated:

I do have to admit that I haven’t started many new projects this year. That is something that I am proud of!! I have been so tempted by all of the awesome Scrappy Trips Around the World quilts and all the Barn Quilt blocks that I have seen but so…not many new projects. I’ll admit, I did cave and start Bonnie’s Lazy Sunday Mystery featured in Quiltmaker…all in all, that’s not too bad for me.
Before I start working on those UFO’s, it’s time for me to stop and clean the sewing room…UGH.
