2011 UFO Challenge

I am going to be participating in two UFO Challenges in 2011.  I have so many UFO's, that I have decided to split them up into two categories: UFO's that just need perhaps just a border or two plus the quilting and the other UFO list will contain quilts that need a lot more work and perhaps even a couple from my Quilt Bucket List that haven't even been started yet!  So without further ado, here are the 12 quilts that are "almost" done:




UFO No 1 is the Just Ducky Quilt - it just needs quilting and binding.  The backing and the binding are going to be the blue/creme polka dot and the binding is even sewn together and pressed, ready to be attached!


UFO No 2 is called Fiddlesticks and needs just one large border and then it's ready for quilting!  Unfortunately, the fabric that I had already cut into borders I ended up using in another project as I had forgotten that that's what the fabric was for, so I am going to have to go shopping for a border replacement.  I think these fabrics were from Moda's Kansas Troubles line, so I am not concerned with finding a suitable replacement! Please ignore the man sitting in the chair . . .



UFO No 3 is named Now & Later.  It just needs to be quilted and bound.  This is another quilt I had fabric "put aside" for the binding, forgot about it and then ended up using it in another project . . . are you seeing a pattern here?


UFO No 4 is a smaller piece that I plan to use as a table topper!  I purchased it in Vegas when my husband was there on a business trip!  The circles and stars are made from wool and it was my first time working with wool on a quilt!  This one just needs quilting and binding too!


UFO No 5 is called Pineberry Trails, and believe it or not, I do have the fabric for the binding - sometimes I amaze myself!  This one might just be about 10 years old and that's sad, because I really like it, and the top has been done all that time too . . .

UFO No 6 is from an online block exchange.  It's a disappearing 9-patch and I really like it.  At this point in time, I am leaning towards just quilting and binding it without a border, but time will tell . . . Sophia was just begging to be in the picture, so here she sits perched on my ladder saying "cheese" - she is such a little ham!

UFO No 7 is named Raspberry Jam made from one of my favoritest Moda Collections - Santuary!  It's all those soft, romantic, muted colors and it makes me happy to look at it!
UFO No 8 is my variation of JudyL's Scraps Ahoy.  It was a lot of fun to put together with scraps from my stash.  

UFO No 9  is one I finished just last month and it's called Wedding Rings.  It just needs quilting and binding made from the scraps I used for the rings!
UFO No 10 - The name of this one is Connect the Dots.  It was another of JudyL's projects . . .
                                           UFO No 11 has no name. It was a Mystery Quilt in June of 2010 and it's another of JudyL's Quilts.  I have yet to decide on borders for this one though . . . 
UFO No 12 is from a Quilt Guild Retreat several years ago.  The block is named Bouncing Betty!

Boy do you have some great quilts to finish. I started to list mine for this challange but think I will cancel it. All mine need quilting but I doubt if I could keep up.......may just participate in spirit and watch everyone's progress. Good luck.

Love the quilts on your list. I'm a bit jealous though *grin*... yours seem further along than most of mine.
