    Back in September about 35-40 of us promised to finish one (or more) UFO's by Dec 31. It's almost time. Have you kept the promise that you made to yourself?

    I have put together the Underground Railroad sampler 6" size blocks tonight with the 2 inch sashings. Cut the backing and binding and it is stretched on the table, ready for quilting and binding tomorrow. This was started a year ago at this time! so one down!

    I do not know if I could complete one a month, but I do have a queen sized in the frame. Maybe I could set a deadline for that. Also "Danbury" has become a UFO while I worked on things for Christmas. I could get back on that....

    LucyInTheSky will soon be announcing the UFO Challenge for 2010. Watch for it here, in the Main section. :P

    I know I will start 2010 with at least 12 UFOs. If i ever reorganize and do a proper inventory, I'll bet i find more hiding in drawers and corners. :shock:

    i finished about 8 ufo projects this past fall...but still have a stack in the closet, so at least one a month sounds do-able for a new goal...hoping for more, but not pushing it makes it more feasable to accomplish; have to get my machine back though, weird but i do more hand stitching and get more done when the machine is on the sewing table, kind of lost when it's not there...not able to stay on task well at all without it, even when i'm not using it...must be my security blanket :)

    Yes, it is the Quilt in a Day Underground Railroad. I did all the 6" blocks about a year at this time, then tucked them aways as other projets took ?priority?. Finally decided that it was time to get things done for ME. Thought I had better get right to it, before something else came along.

    I have several of those tucked away projects myself. I'm almost done with my last 09 Christmas present. Yaaaaa.
    Then I'll be getting my UFO's started again. The "My stuff". I was thinking about purchasing that Underground Railroad book the other day but kept telling myself no you have enough projects. Now I wish I had gotten it. Well when your done with yours please post a picture. I would love to see it.

    That pesky housework is calling - so my goal today is to get that done...then finish the wallhanging and post it TODAY. Now it may be at 11:59pm......but that is the plan.

    I didn't finish mine. I kept it on the couch that whole time but only got 3 houses done. And then I had to put it away during the holidays, but I will get it back out when the tree is down and the furniture back where it belongs. I feel like I should just try to finish it by the end of 2010 now. In the meantime I did make two rag quilts and another lap size quilt, do they count? :)

    Alas, I had to give it up. I thought at 11:12 when I was starting to put on the binding, YES, I am going to make it. But as the clock showed 12:02, I knew I was defeated. So, if I wait, I can have it done for January goal.

    :roll: :roll:

    I've made myself a promise that I would finish 3 things before starting something new..so far I have two tops ready to sew rows together. I saw the cutest thing online yesterday and I'm ready to start it but I'm trying to hold to my promise. Anyone else have tons of things started

    I started on mine and then DD asked me to make two quilts for her future mother and father in law. One queen and a king. Everything came to a standstill so I could get them done. Finished on Christmas Eve. Now I start on that UFO again.
