UFO Busting and 2015 First Quarter Finish-A-Long goals

Good morning! It has been cold and wet here in the Midwest….good weather to stay inside, snuggle with the kids, and drink hot chocolate! I haven’t done a lot of quilting, but have worked on some binding while watching movies with the kids.

I have been studying my “UFO problem” and coming up with a plan to tackle it some more this year. To that end, I am linking up with Vicki Welsh’s UFO Busting 2015 and with the 2015 Finish-A-Long with Adrianne at On the Windy Side.

I am down from 38 a couple of years ago to 26 today. The current list includes several quilts started in 2014 but not finished yet and those should be done pretty soon as there are a couple of baby quilts in there. I also have a couple that may go by the wayside…I don’t love them any more and don’t see myself taking the time to finish them, but will leave that decision until later in the year.

Here are my stats for Vicki’s UFO Busting:

  • Open projects – 26
  • Projects finished since last link up – 0
  • Projects started since last link up – 0

I wrote about what I think is probably my oldest UFO here as part of Shelly’s (Prairie Moon Quilts) Studio Organizing challenge. It was started in or before 2002. My UFO spreadsheet also shows I have three others from that time frame, but I really have no idea which one is oldest!

Here are projects I am putting out there for the first quarter of the 2015 Finish-A-Long.

  1. Binding finished and a label on Charlotte’s baby quiltCharlotte's quilt
  2. Binding and a label on Kendall’s baby quilt – Kendall's quilt
  3. Doc’s Memory Quilt – Most of the blocks are made, but I am changing it up a little and have to make 4 more for the change. Memory_Quilt
  4. Flannel squares – add borders, quilt and bindFlannel squares
  5. Finish up and bind my oldest UFO (at least I think it is my oldest, it has to be 2002 at the latest!) – Cows for DebDeb's cows
  6. Birds in the Air – all the blocks are made, it just needs to be set together, quilted and bound. Birds In The Air blocks
  7. Mom’s Drunkard’s pathRed and white drunkards path
  8. Star From the Storm – needs last two borders, quilting, and bindingStarFromStorm
  9. 2010 First Saturday quilt – needs quilting and binding2010 First Saturday top finished
  10. Dinosaur quilt – needs quilting and bindingMini-me's dinosaur quilt

I will not get all these finished and am not even going to try, but it gives me some flexibility in what I work on, that way I won’t get bored with one project.

We will see what happens!

If you need motivation to finish projects and UFOs, hop on over and visit Shelly at Prairie Moon Quilts, Vicki at Field Trips in Fiber or Adrianne at On the Windy Side!
