Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Ok! I agreed to join this thread before Christmas, but said I wouldn't start untill after I got my sewing area cleaned up. It is finally done!Yeah!! As I was cleaning I set aside all my UFO's as I found them:
1.- Dresdon Plate - have been cutting blades for about a year.
2.- Grandmother's Flower Garden - This has ben my take along project for over a year
3.- Fall Wall hanging - at least 2 years old
4.- Paper pieced wall hanging- only about 8 months old, my first try at freezer paper piecing, Class project.
5.- Snowman quilt- only about 4 months old
6.- Bargelo quilt- Class quilt, do not enjoy working on it, about a year old
7.- Square in a square quilt-Class project,made from kit, first time with Baticks, don't like the color, 5-6 yr.
8.- Quilt of Valor - This one is special- for my nephew
9.- Yard sale quilt- found hand emb. squars need to be sashed and joined
10.- Block exchange - from Boomarang 5 East, 3 monthsold
11.- Flannel quilt - Odd size and shape blocks, can't find or remember pattern, had it for at least 20 yrs!LOL
12.- Have 4 very simple tops made by DH grandmother in Late 50's or early 60's need to be quilted when I get more proficent on the long arm.
I know this is just a partial list. I am still going through my sewing stuf, while digging out Christmas ornaments found a plastic tub under a bed full of fabric! LOL Who knows what I'll find when I dig into the 2 full chest of drawers in the spare room!
I am sure I signed on to this challenge last year....and life got in my way. So I will try again. I did get a Christmas wall hanging almost done over the holidays so that shall be the first on my "UFO" list to finnish. Need the binding compleated and a hanging sleeve. Several waiting to be done. Now I need to learn that little 2 letter word..."NO"! I can be my own worst enemy for saying yes to other peoples projects.
