    I like this idea also. How dose everyone else feel?

    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.

    Here's my list -you'll quickly spot a theme:

    English garden - Nine-patch blocks from a swap on an online group - needs quilting
    Abstract wall hanging - needs quilting
    Bag – a kit, fabrics selected, but not started
    Log cabin foundation – not started
    Large Christmas wall hanging - needs quilting
    Baby quilt – fabrics bought, not started
    Crumb blocks - have made a pile of these - need some more, then sashing and quilting
    Liberty fabrics, English patchwork. Sewn together - needs quilting and making into cushion cover
    Hunter’s star - needs to be sewn together and quilted
    Star blocks - a friend gave me about 80 small blocks. Need to be sewn together and quilted
    Pattern for a cover for my Featherweight – not started
    Sashiko kits - 2 x 12in squares. One finished, one in progress
    Hand piecing - a Quilt University exercise. Curved piecing, abandoned in disgust and despair!
    Christmas tree wall hanging - needs quilting
    Hand pieced stars - passed on by a friend - lots to do on this!
    Friendship stars - blocks from an online swap - needs quilting
    A quilt for my Mum - has been a huge struggle, now trying to find fabrics I'm running short of
    Waterfall – a design from Simply Quilts magazine. Have 103 batiks for this, but not yet started!
    Bright n black stars - needs quilting
    D9P lap quilt - needs quilting.

    If I do all these, I should be an expert quilter by the time I finish!
