My UFOs and a Plan to Finish Them

Originally posted on Wordpress.

Melissa from Sew BitterSweet Designs and Shanna from Fiber of All Sorts host a monthly, or rather bi-monthly, linky party for the sole purpose of naming a UFO to finish and then showing the finish.  Just the thing I need to help me finish these long-neglected UFOs.

The UFO I plan to finish for January is one I call Showtime!  It is a tee-shirt quilt from my eldest daughter's tee-shirts.  Due to it's size and bulk, I sent it out to be quilted and now all I have left is the binding and label.

Here are the UFO Quilts I want to complete this year.

1.  Showtime!
I last showed it when the top, or flimsy, was completed. (When did quilters start calling them flimsies anyway?) I'd like to have it finished by next Thursday so I can take it to quilt group.

2. Baby Bow
I think it is ready to be quilted.

3. Gairdin Walk
It is also ready to be quilted.

4.  Trip Around the World
Still just a finished top at this point.

5.  FriendsWhoHaven'tMet

6. Depression Block
I think I still have to finish putting blocks together.

7. Christmas Among Friends
I can't believe these swap blocks date back to 2007. And they are still just blocks.

8. Denim Cathedral Window
I have a long way to go on this one, but all the denim circles are cut and it's a quilt as you go type quilt at least.

9. Star Travel
This one may not get done this year. It's in my travel kit.

10. Second Saturday Sampler
This was a block of the month from the local quilt store, with one block still unfinished.

11. Jacob's Ladder
So old that it predates my first blog post.


  1. It's been a while since you've posted about your quilt projects. I remember the T-shirt quilt, but none of the others. Good luck with your UFO goals. I'm doing ALYOF this year too in hopes of getting a few UFOs off my project list.

  2. I plan to work on some UFOs in 2015, too. I don't have many, but those I have been unfinished for years.

  3. I guess I would be too hopeful to think I could clear out all my UFOs then. Actually, I know the paper piecing won't get done this year. I only work on it when I'm on trips or long waits. Marti

  4. I hate to think how many unfinished ones I have. I guess I like the start and wane at the finish. Marti

  5. Look forward to seeing the finished quilts. I'm sure you'll get the tee shirt quilt done in January. I always wanted to make one of those.

  6. Thanks for visiting! The t-shirt quilt was surprisingly easy once they were ironed to interfacing. I didn't think I could quilt it on my sewing machine though. Marti
