My January goals: 1) Finish trimming and bind 2 black batik twin quilts. 2) Finish a Halloween twin quilt. I have most of the sub blocks ready to be sewn together. 3) Finish a Pink and Aqua sampler twin quilt for my sister. 4) quilt and donate an I-Spy throw. And that should be all for this month. #-4 projects. This one is questionable since I have a few other projects I will be working on.

My yearly UFO project is the 365 day Challenge. (I know Kathy has had this challenge going for at least 4 years and she started it again this year). This year I will get the top together at least. 3-4 years ago I collected, bought fabric and printed out all of the patterns. I did about 10 blocks last year (and lost the bag with the finished blocks). This year I'm going to get it completed. I am determined. I'm organized this year. As the saying goes. I'm also wanting to complete 2 very old UFO. Both are over 20 years old. So back to finishing projects, cleaning house and cooking.

Well, i don't know that i will set monthly goals. My goal is to just get some of the kitted quilts done, and the few UFOs done, but am not going to stress myself by expecting too much. i did finish one U.FO and today I finished a kitted top that i would consider a stash buster for the moratorium. Tomorrow i will try to get that ready to be quilted, then i can pull out another UFO to do next. I have some quilts to quilt on the longarm for a friend, so that will delay the progress of working on quilting projects. But I can get it all done in good time.

Thanks for the UFO thread! I always join, and it has helped me considerably, but I seem to not post as much as the rest of you. I'm always impressed with what you do. Awesome work going on all the time. I'll try to report in more often this year and maybe keep that tally increasing a tad. Good luck everyone!

My Goal is to complete 1 donation quilt and get a friendship quilt sandwiched —after finishing grandbaby’s quilt for shower in two weeks.

Yay Dedmac!

I’m working on 2 that will actually remove 4 UFOs from my list. One just needs quilting- I sandwiched it yesterday afternoon and need to iron to make sure basting spray is good and dry. The other needs a back and I don’t have enough of anything I want to use, so that will have to wait for a trip to the LQS.

I'm in! Am hoping to make good progress and finishes for the year. My biggest UFO is for our Cal. King bed. Blocks are done and sewn together. Need to finish and add borders, piece the backing, and cut binding strips.
I have several other projects in the making, and I will not be counting my UFO's. Kinda scary! lol
Am also sorting and organizing so that I will have a good amount of "light duty" sewing I can do. I am facing neck surgery in Feb. to replace a couple of discs. No lifting allowed. Oh boy!

I would like to join. I need some motivation to sew anything that doesn't have a deadline.
