UFO Challenge...Gulp!

First let me distract you with a pretty picture!

This is a pattern I've designed. I'm calling it Piet's Garden right now, but that might change. It is also the newest entry on my UFO list.

I'm writing this post to list out my UFOs and join Judy's challenge. Go here. She's having everyone list 12 and commit to finishing them this year. I've never done a challenge like this before, and I have a lot of projects, so I'm going to list all of them and pick one each month. This way I'll have enough variety and not feel constrained. I relied on an older list for the projects that are "in storage", but since I haven't touched most of them I'll assume they are still there. :) The elves never seem to come in the night and finish things for me. The list also includes a few non- or not-quite-quilting projects, like cross stitch and some silk ribbon things. OK...deep breath. Here goes:
  1. Grandmother's Flower Garden
  2. applique stars
  3. Tennessee Waltz
  4. Snowball/9-patch
  5. Chez Moi quilt 1
  6. Chez Moi quilt 2

  1. Wow, nice list! I'm in the 2011 UFO challenge along with you, but most of my projects hae a great deal of piece work left to do.
    I'm looking forward to seeing your progress this year.

  2. Thanks for the encouragement! I hope to knock out the easy ones and spend more time on the involved ones. Anything I take off that list is good! lol.
