2011 UFO Challenge

I am going to participate in a UFO challenge for the year 2011. If you want to participate as well, go to Patchwork Times. Participants number their unfinished projects 1-12 then each month Judy will pick a number and that’s the project you have to finish. I'm taking the challenge.
Here is a list of the UFOs I plan to complete in 2011:

  1. Orange Road to California - blocks completed, just needs sashing and sewing, quilting and binding.

  2. Christmas Bauble Runner

  3. Around the World Cottage Quilt

  4. Old Tobacco Road (a Bonnie Hunter Mystery) - a lot of little quilty pieces, lots of work left to do... this is a big one.

  5. Kaleidoscope Quilt - Not sure what the status on this is, I took this picture more than a year ago and haven't looked at it since! I blogged about it HERE:

  6. Flannel Crazy Quilt - This is another quilt whose status is unknown. I haven't looked at this quilt since I took this picture more than a year ago. I blogged about this HERE:

  7. Cameron's Calender Quilt - This quilt I made with my 5yr old son. We never put the blocks together, my son is now just 7 and has forgotten about it almost. Think it's time to finish this one. Here is a picture of my son at the age of five:

  8. Starstruck Quilt - These fabrics were chosen by my daughter, whom this was originally intended for. It's a series of blocks that need to be put together. I had intended to do the quilt as you go method on it, but are now trying to do the just-get-it-done method. I blogged about the day I started this quilt HERE.

  9. Robot quilt - Almost done!

  10. Batik Triangle Quilt - Not much further I'm afraid from this picture.

  11. Cinders Best Day quilt - I started this quilt, but I didn't have the skills to finish it. Now I can finish it.

  12. Roll, Roll, Cotton Boll - I'm not sure how old a project has to be to get onto the UFO list since I started this project this month, but I'm already behind and it already got shoved aside for some other projects. But I sincerely want to finish it.
I do plan to complete several more quilts as well. All my normal goings on. So here we are. I needed to choose some of my UFOs to finish up and I guess I could have spent more time choosing the projects, but these are the ones I've chosen.
My biggest goal is to complete more than I start.

Awesome quilts, all of those "to bes"...12 months, 12 quilts. It's very ambitious, but I'm sure you can do it! Love your Orange Road. I'll be back to cheer you onward! Have a wonderful holiday! Hugs, Finn

I found your blog -- hurray! Just had to go back to the Patchwork Times linky list. (I was trying to get here through your profile and it's marked private.) Anyway, here I am! lol

What a great list of quilts you have to work on this year! Lots of work ahead, but I do think the challenge is great motivation. I'm amazed at how much I've accomplished already. I didn't think it was possible!

Good luck with your projects! I'll be looking forward to seeing how they all turn out. :o)
