    My ufo & wip piles are out of control and I've lost count of how many I've got going on.

    For 2011 I'm on a 'fabric diet' until I complete these projects. Purchasing fabric only for completion of the ufo's & wips, if needed.

    During the next week I'll take a count and line them up to finish them off.

    I got to thinking that maybe I'm not alone.......so who else would like to join me? We'd all be more successful at it if we have a sense of accountability where we post what we've done every week.

    I think we finish off the ones that are closest to completion, then tackle the rest.

    We can start on January 1st and I think it would be a fun project. We might actually get a few quilts done!

    Let me know who's in, we'll start this week by finding our wips & ufo's and count them all.

    Blessings to all,
    MaryAnna

    Only one UFO here. I would have sandwiched it before I started cutting my next one, but I had a bad car accident today. Sandwiching a quilt is not in the books until my rib area is better.

    Oh no! I hope you'll be feeling better soon, at least you're still with us, and that's the important part. Do see your doctor, if you haven't done so yet! And call your lawyer as well.
    Join in even if all you have is 1, we won't be starting anything until the 1st of the year.
    Blessings & prayers sent your way,

    Quilting was birthed from creativity, so we'll create like our mothers or grandmothers did.
    Glad to have ya onboard, bookmark this post and we'll run off of this, posting each week.

    Hey Cyn,
    I know how you feel! I'm going to have to search out all of mine as well! Dig out what you can and line them up. We've got all week to start finding our ufo's & wips.
    Great to have you onboard. Bookmark this post and we'll run the challenge from this one.
    Blessings,

    Hey sonisew, I know how you feel! It can be daunting, but if we know what we've got to do, and line it up- sort of 'assembly line' tactics, then we'll be able to finish them. With a group of us working on our projects and posting as we are working...we should knock them out quickly.
    Great to have you onboard!

    I'm in also. Have way to many quilt tops waiting for borders! Just amazing. I have such a hard time not purchasing new fabs....just love em! I'm glad I'm not alone in this. I just joined the mysi's mystery quilt and will have to complete the fab selection then it's shop at home! (til next time I get too close to fabric shops...but I live in the country so can work on those UFO's for quite some time.) Thanks for starting this and for the encouragement! The quilt top on my avatar is also one waiting for the border!!!

    Welcome onboard Patti Sue! Yes, that's the problem with wips & ufo's, they tend to be in different stages! Find what you can now to start on, and I'm sure you'll find all the rest as you go along! together we can get this done.
    Blessings,
    MaryAnna

    Welcome onboard Chigger Holler Quilter! We're all in this together, I'm glad I'm not alone on this one. We've got quilts that need to get finished and by golly, they'll be finished in 2011! Some may have more ufo's & wips than others, but we'll knock 'em all out. You won't be 'borderless' in 2011!
    Blessings,
    MaryAnna

    Welcome leatheflea, you've already started! I'm guessing you're in? Glad you're getting 1 ufo out of the way so quickly! I'm hoping my first 2 will be quick, I've got to bind my son's Christmas quilt- yes, I know it's past Christmas already! Thanks for your encouragement!

    I am planning on not buying too much fabric this year. I would like to only work on my ongoing projects.

    I have a few tops, some already sandwhiched, to be quilted. I also have some piecing projects.

    I want to focus on some projects this year and not purchase.

    Here is my list.

    1. Star Struck (currently quilting)
    2. 4th of July (top)
    3. OBW (sandwhiched ready to quilt)
    4. Log Cabin (top)
    5. Blue block quilt (sandwhiched ready to quilt)
    6. Floral Quilt (blocks)
    7. Bargello (partly pieced)
    8. Pin Wheel (HST's done)
    9. Fall blocks (from swap)
    10. Butterfly blocks (leftover from other quilt)
    11. Warm Wishes (piecing project)
    12. OBW 2 (piecing project)
    13. Diagonal Strip quilt (only have fabric bought)
    14. String Quilt (piecing project)
    15. Breast Cancer blocks (from swap)

    Numbers 1, 14, 13, 3 are my plans for this year. My sister also requested a baby quilt that I think I will use number 6 for.

    I don't know about the not buying fabric part but I have at least 7 WIP and several UFOs that I plan on working on next.

    You want the list?

    WIP
    1 baby quilt
    2 Orion star
    3 square in a square #1
    4 square in a square #2
    5 butterfly garden BOM original
    6 butterfly garden BOM #2
    7 all borders

    There are also several quilts that are ready to layer and quilt. That list is longer. I'll be happy just to work on the WIP.
