UFO 2013!

 Its that time again, to see what I completed on my 2013 UFO list and what gets turned over to the 2014 list, and of course what new things I started in 2013 and didn't complete, adding to the list as well.

The good news is that I actually completed THREE quilts that were on the list last year!  ...  to of set those I have 3 too add:

Got this top completed 1/17/13, but never got it quilted.  I have the border on and the backing is ready, lets hear it for a completion by its anniversary!

Piece of cake 2, started in the Craftsy class, top and backing done, need to sandwich and quilt... see a trend?  The third one is the cousin to the low volume done in August, with strips, and I actually pulled it out and am working on it!

Swoon, started 1/2012, I have renewed enthusiasm for this and hope to get back to work on it soon!

Arcadia:  Hmm, for such a simple quilt, it sure has been around for awhile.

Rainbow Blocks: I started these April (2011), a late comer to Rachels quilt along. I have about 1/2 the color blocks still to go but I have the fabric ready to finish up. update from last year in the same...   only 3 blocks left! 

Chubby Stars: This one is TracyJay's quilt along that I started August 2010... ugh... The little chain squares are all cut of else I would have re purposed the fabric awhile ago. A finish on this one will be either completing it or re-using the parts for some thing else. update: Update on this one, looking for snowball quilt patterns to use the block in.

American Jane blocks: Also started spring 2011, this is all American Jane fabrics from different lines that I have about 1/2 the blocks done.

Hope Valley QAL: last.... this was Crazy Mom Quilts Round and Round QAL that I ran out of gas on... round and round, and I didn't want to make a twin, I wanted it bigger, so I need to review and get it done. 

This Quilt Along was started in Feb 2010, but I am not sure when I joined in. I long since decided this was a life long project, but I would like to make some progress.

So, that it... my UFO list for the end of 2013...  I think it feels better to end the year with what I have not completed than wait until tomorrow and start the new year with what baggage I am bringing in!


  1. Congrats for what you got finished in 2013 and your new starts! I haven't thought about the UFOs I'm dragging along into the new year. Kinda sobering. I believe I started 2013 by intending to quilt one a month or something like that. Hm, maybe I should revisit that goal, lol.

  2. Somtimes its good to have projects in different stages because one day you might feel like quilting and then another day you may feel like piecing. Some projects just have their own timetable. I think you have the makings of great quilts. Maybe some are meant to become cushion or table runners. Just enjoy whatever you choose to work on.

  3. Wow -- you have some beautiful projects going on. Congratulations on all your 2013 finishes! And Happy New Year!!!
