    Some of you may remember in the middle of September of last year when I suggested that we pick one of our unfinished objects and set a goal of getting it completed by New Year's Eve. Well, I have been thinking that it might be fun to do that again.

    I have a Christmas one that is pinned and ready to hand quilt. I also have a number of others that are in various stages of not-done-yet.

    We have an extra two weeks this time around. Anyone want to join me?

    Yes!!! I have 4 I want to finish before the first of November. I'm hoping I can actually get 6 done, it would put a nice dent in my UFO's. I am having shoulder surgery the beginning of November so will not be able to sew for a couple of months again. I have to work work work to get these done!! Of course all these UFO are tops, I will have to tackle the others some other day.
    Do we need to list them. Hmmm then we may actually be accountable if someone on here remembers to ask us if we have finished them.

    1. Devoted, oversized queen for my bed, still need borders, 2 years old
    2. Johnny-Jump-Ups, wall hanging, ummm 6 years needs backing and quilting
    3. Radio Flyer, double size, needs quilting, 2 years old
    4. The Journey Home, double size, needs quilting, 9 mos old
    5. (forgot the name) Floral (hmm most are) large lap, needs quilting, 3 years old
    6. Pillows for DD#3, needs quilting and made into pillows, 4 years old.

    This is not counting the two WIP's, one I am giving on the 19th of September and a wedding gift that I picked out the fabrics last night needed October 10.

    Ok, that's enough. I still have 3 others hanging on my "quilt Hanger" (treadmill)

    I'm in! I have one I am doing QAYG. I have 35-40 of the 54 blocks needed (I better double check that it's been a while). I have 13 quilted. I would love to give it as a Christmas gift.

    I think the pattern is Cain and Abel from quilterscache.com

    That is a wonderful start. The only rules are that you pick one that you truly feel you can get finished by New Year's Eve. You can quilt right up til midnight December 31st.

    Now if you feel you can complete more than one, you may do as many as you wish. As I had said previously, mine is a Christmas quilt. The top was done over a decade ago, I believe. Last year I got some backing and pinned it and then it was after Christmas, so I did not feel like working on it. Now that it is headed for Fall, I am wanting to get it done.

    Pick anything you like. Last time a few people said that they had some that they planned to just get the top finished. Whatever your project, I just wanted to give us all some inspiration.

    Have Fun. I will make a post in the picture section so that you can show us what you are going to work on. The title of the post is "For The UFO Challenge."

    I'm game. I have a cat top, a coffee top and am working on finishing a lots of dots top. My goal is to have them all spray basted and quilted. The rest will have to wait.
