    Irene I think you and I are twins.

    I'm new to this board and would like to join those of you who are planning to finish UFOs this year. I won't promise a total of 12 but any finished project is a good project in my book. hummm which one should I start with?

    I have the same problem. New projects are very alluring, aren't they? I'm in on this challenge. Can't wait to get some things completed!

    Well, Marcia, I have laid several on the table in the den--right beside the jigsaw puzzle that has had all my spare (and some that wasn't spare) time the past three days. Haven't decided if I will finish one all the way, then start on another, or skip around--what would you do? piecefully, the old one

    I'll play. I took a closer look at my quilting list and realized that I only have 5 actual UFO's. The ones I've started and really really really don't feel like finishing. The remaining 25+ are all WIPs and as yet uncut PIGs although 11 of the WIPs are just waiting for quilting so I guess they would qualify as well.

    You're probably asking the wrong person. lol I have over 35 UFOs. I find that if I skip around, I get confused, so in the past couple of months I worked on one til it was done then started working on another I had almost finished, then started something new from the board, then finished the 2nd one and will now start on finishing what I started from the board(is that a UFO since I stopped working on it?)...you get the picture. My mind gets full of chaos if I work or think about more than one, but if I hit a snag and have to let it sit for awhile, I start on another.
    ;-)

    Hi Obx... I really like how you set off my curiosity with your list of UFO's that you plan to do. I will really look forward to seeing the pictures of finished projects and your checking each one off your list. Plus you have one for each month! :-) Wow! That will keep you busy.

    Count me in. I promised myself that I would finish my UFO's this year. This will give me even more incentive.

    Gulp! All the way quilted and everything???? I'll give it a shot but I don't machine quilt anything larger than a wall hanging so 'finished' might depend on funds for having it quilted.

    I'm in. There are too many things I have invested money in to let them lay around and become obsolete.

    Here's My List of UFO's that are in the Game:
    1) Small Brown Log Cabin, for Storytelling: goes with the book by Nicola Bayley called "The Patchwork Cat." In progress: working on Stitch-in-the-Ditch at this time.
    2) Blue and Yellow Twin size, Squares are done, sewn into Strips. Will re-think the outer borders...
    3 ++) Christmas Quilts (plural) Lots of assorted Star Blocks, Log Cabin Blocks, and others, "PEACE" and 9-Patch.
    4) Crib Quilt of Bug Jars on Aqua. Needs to be unstitched in places to remove impossible bulges. Was intended for a grandnephew's birth, but he's going on 4 now... long overdue and must be re-purposed.
    If I can get through these, I'll pat myself on the back! And be ready to list some more UFO's...

    I'm in on this one. Can definitely use the motivation to get alot of the UFO's I have finished. I did start a new quilt last Sunday and finished the top on Tuesday!

    I am new to the Quilting Board ... have just been reading posts for a few weeks. This challenge is for me. I have more UFO's than I can put on a list ... the list becomes a "UFL" before I can get everything on it! LOL So, YES, I want to be part of this challenge and I really, REALLY want to succeed. Thanks so much for the encouragement. Now to figure out which UFO to tackle first!!!!!

    I'm on board. Not too many UFOs but those I have I'm 'stuck'on. However, have 1 graduation quilt, 2 anniversary quilts and 21 Christmas quilts to make before next December. Luckily husband will quilt them on the frame with the 820.
