Finishing up a couple of UFO's

Wedding quilts for my first two DD's (married 3 1/2 years and 2 1/2 years)

Who knows.

Stuff for my first grandchild, a boy due in May.

I have promised myself to finish various UFO's, which, all happen to be queen size quilts.
I held this year's promise to just use my stash, and only had to buy backing once all year.
Continue to use up my stash.
I have signed up for the "Penny Haren's" group on here, but, until UFO's are caught up then nothing else.
Two of the queen size UFO's are wedding gifts, and one is for my daughter.
I want to do a couple of baby quilts and lap quilts as well, just to have on hand, instead of always having deadlines.
Once I get my longarm HQ Sweet Sixteen in June, then I will start something else.
So I guess I have about six months to clean up the UFO's and re-organize my space to get ready for the new machine.

January - a birthday quilt for #2 daughter, a quilt to be auctioned for Cystic Fibrosis and finish the prayer quilt for church that got put away for Christmas. February - maybe I will have lost enough weight to start my weight loss quilt - a block a pound or inch lost then make my Downy for kids quilt. March ??? I can't think that far ahead. I need to straighten my stash and reclaim two rooms all year long.

I want to do a BOM or quilt-along. I'm researching! Maybe the star BOM here.

I'm making a quilt for a new baby niece and in February will hear the gender of another new baby niece/nephew due in July. So, I know of two baby quilts!

Other than that, I am not sure. I'm going to be moving into a MUCH smaller space. Just going to see what happens.

Priorities are:
King size quilt for my brother & sister in law
Twin quilt for a graduation gift
Paint chip challenge for our quilt guild
Bonnie Hunter Mystery quilt

I'm sure there will be many more, but these are the ones I have to get done.
