    I'm in too. I have a list of many. Maybe just signing up will help me push through more than I would otherwise. Good luck to us all for a productive New Year.

    I'm in - I think I need a little push! This just might do it.

    I'd like to join this group. I have several pieced tops that I haven't been brave enough to sandwich and quilt. Hope you can all get me started. Thanks.
    Every day's a blessing.

    Oh, YES, I'm up for this challenge too!! I don't even know how many UFOs I have, but I surely need to finish a few of them this year. I'm going to go through them and pick out 5 to finish this year. Then I need all of y'all to hold me accountable!

    I know I will never be able to do one a month but if I even get two of my 4 quilt tops completed in 2012, I will be very happy!

    I don't know how I missed this topic on 12-13-11 - so another thread got started, but I will try to contact all that posted to my thread and get them to start posting on this one. I am going to list my UFO's because I have so many. I think my total for 2011 is 17 completed UFOs. Several of them only needed binding. My goal for 2012 is going to one per month and hopefully I will exceed that number again.

    Here is my list of UFO's: (I may find more put away somewhere)

    1. Woodland Critters 2. Back Yard Friends 3. Pink & Green Toile
    4. Birds In The Round 5. Rainbows Over Kyoto 6. Blk/White/Red French Braid
    7. Christmas Table Cover-2011 8. Thanksgiving Door Panel 9. Old Butterfly Quilt
    10. Old Teapot Quilt 11. French Portrait 12. Fancy Feathers
    13. Hearts Desire 14. Girlfriends 15. Bear Quilt (Drew)
    16. Jenny's Garden 17. TKs Fish Quilt 18. Down On The Farm
    19. Pink Mums 20. Funky Chickens 21. Brown Pink Roses
    22. Pink Green Floral 23. Floral Bed Runner 24. Dick & Jane Baby Quilt
    25. Apron Quilt 26. Pink Toil Baby Quilt 27. Old Auction Quilt
    28. Pink Elephant Baby Quilt 29. Blk/White Red Recycled 30. Tutti Frutti French Braid
    31. Old Panel 32. Turning 20 33. Brown Floral Attic Window
    34. Floral Scrap w Blue Border 35. Blk Floral Table Runner 36. Oriental Dolls
    37. French Braid w Apples 38. Antique Churn Dash Throw 39. Chinese Coin Scrap
    40. Nursery Rhyme Baby Quilt 41. Old Auction Scrap Quilt 42. Christmas Horse Quilt
    43. Strin Scrap w/red floral border 44.

    I would love to see everyone's list!

    I'm in for 2012 as well. Still working on my December UFO in the other thread, but reaching that goal seems less likely every day. On the other hand, there's alwasy Christmas - a whole day to quilt except for the time spent in the kitchen

    I know we can all do this. We love to quilt and life has its moments on stealing our time, but we will do it together. I am excited to see the old fabrics and patterns that have been set aside for us to finish. I have a quilt to finish up for my BIL this week and have to make up a healing quilt for boss' wife who is having such difficulties so the UFO pile will get one less because I need to finish one and she needs one. See how that works? I killed two birds with one stone as the phrase would go. it pays to cut things up even though it was several years ago. Then I will use another UFO for a quilt swap for a partner here on the board. Good way to get motivated there. You can still sign up today. It is the last day. Will give you incentive to finish an UFO if you need it. Then onto my SIL that has been waiting 1.5 years to get his which is sitting there waiting for me. I am like most, we get distracted onto another quilt that has to be done and loose motivation to finish the ones we started. Then I wil get on thos other 130 or so UFOs that are there. Yes, my daughter is still keeping track. I will photo as I go so can get record of progress. It will be interesting.

    Yes please! I hadn't discovered this board at the beginning of 2011, so signed up for another UFO challenge elsewhere. Didn't do that well - I think I finished 4 and made a bit of progress on others - but also started 2 new projects. Oops. But that does leave me slightly ahead, doesn't it..

    I've been quilting for about 8 years, and have about 15 UFOs at stages from just started to just need finishing touches. I'm so easily distracted onto the next new project....and I think that the UFOs are actually inhibiting me from spending time quilting - I've felt a bit overwhelmed by them. I think I'm going to pack them up and put all but one out of sight, to see if that will help me focus.

    I'm going to get started this very evening! I haven't done any sewing for weeks, and am itching to get back to it, so I've promised myself a break from Christmas preparations this evening and tomorrow. I have a small wall hanging which just needs the binding finished and threads tidied up , so maybe I can get the 2011 count up to 5!

    Okay I'm going to give this another try. I didn't do so well last year, sigh. Some of my UFO's are knitting, cross-stitch and just plain old sewing, but they still need to get done!

    OK, I'll join in. My DH is in rehab with knee replacement right now so I have no time to make the presents I started or didn't even get started on!

    Is it any UFO? Because I have some purses in various states that need to be completed as well as some quilts.

    I'm in too. Will count up my UFO's and post a list asap. If I can, will finish some small projects for Christmas gifts!

    Not sure how others are counting, but for me knitting, etc. UFOs will also count since they are in the minority.

    This sounds great to me. Why is it that a new project is so exciting? I just started quilting a nice quilt that has been pinned for over a year.

    How I counted mine was that we needed to clean garage for new longarm machine so the child went thru each one to help me sort and organize where I should put things in the cupboards and each project was either in a box, plastic bin, or a plastic bag. she would ask me if this fabric was ok to put away and I said it went with this project and then i got a look and she simply states "I think we need to make a list mom to help you get these things done". that was it, she started it and now I have a long list of five pages long with each item on it. Now I do not think it fair she put her skirt and shirt to be done when that is her project, but it made my list, hmmmmmmm...... some issue there for me. LOl

I also took a lot of classes and those quilts/projects are never finished in the class, so when I get home, it is on to whatever I am already working on an the class project is set aside....Now, they are taking up room and need to be GONE....wish me luck!
    I think (hope) I don't have quite 30 but I can relate..I'm in, i really need help with motivation for these projects

    Won't it be nice to get those pins back so you can pin another one and not buy new ones?

    Although I would be happy to just not create more UFO's, I!m in on this. Don't have that many, but one was started in 1994; so should be aged well enough by now.
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

    Hello Everyone,
    I was reading all the post about the UFO challenge. I am in but was wondering if we all could have a UFO partner that would remind us about our challenge and email us to hang in there. The end will be great. And maybe more room to buy new fabric. I guess a one on one or two on one would help me. I guess I would have to answer to them. I hope you understand what I mean!

    I'm in, my UFO's are getting so out of hand that my DH has been asking if I have seen any SETI people in the backyard yet.
