2012 UFO challenge

This will be my 2nd year of joining Judy's UFO challenge.
While I will be listing 12 projects and see whichever one gets chosen, I may need to adjust my monthly project by season. Seems to be more difficult for me to do summer projects, so we'll see how it goes. But I will try to get more than 5 UFO's done, so I can beat my 2011 finished UFO!

1. Orca Bay mystery - while it is still ongoing, I will have to work on almost all steps; hope to get it done as a quilt top by the end of 2012!

2. Jelly Roll Race quilt: is promised to be given to a friend, latest for her birthday in May; it needs quilting and binding

3. Lenora's quilt: I gave a her pictures of several quilt tops and am waiting for her to pick one!

4. Friendship strips: we had a strip exchange going last year and I really would like to finish it into a top

5. Mod Blossom: needs quilting

6. Houndstooth top: needs quilting

7. Modern Cross; add borders, quilt

8. Farmer's wife: make 10 more blocks (or it would be an overwhelming task...)

9. Binding for Cathedral Stars quilt

10. Binding for Jelly Roll quilt along quilt

11. Tropical Twist: needs borders - hope to find a for me do-able solution

12. Flying geese: finish top (and quilt)

That's my list - please check all the other participants listed on Judy's blog -
and maybe you will join yourself!
It sure helps to get things moving along!

Happy UFO sewing in 2012!


  1. Great UFO's Barbara! I'll try along with you this year! :-)

  2. Gorgeous projects! Your Cathedral Stars is awesome! Lots of work but you can do it.

  3. I think I will try the UFO's this year too. With my pile of quilts, I'll need to do 2 each month!! But, I'll work on just one a month so I can accomplish something!

  4. Good luck on your UFOs. Looks like you have a nice mix of projects in different stages so that the task won't be too overwhelming overall.


Thank you for your comment - you made my day!
