Around the Net: UFO Challenge (entry 41)

My Around the Net post for this week is all about UFOs. Jacquie from Tallgrass Prairie Studio Blog has an excellent challenge for everyone called, Joy in the New Year. It's a place where you can list (I entered in 5) projects that you want to for sure complete over the next year.

Mine are all at various stages and my list may increase as the year unfolds, or a new pattern comes out that I would love to do, or someone shows me a quilt that is a MUST do lol, so many reasons to have many projects on the go:

Quilt for Zach - picture to soon come, after Sat, no more secrets I promise

Quilt for Baby Girl (not sure who to give it to as of yet), I have about 5 blocks cut out and ready for appliqueing to background fabric, all fabric is washed and ready to go.

Cotton Theory Quilt - so close to being complete and the best part is this technique is a quilt as you go, so once I finish sewing the blocks together it is finished...

nicely packed away until I have time...

close up of the block, decorative stitch across the center, french seams around each border at least once...

Freebie 15 (2008-2009) - just working on final border 

Apple Core Quilt (hand-pieced) - small table runner with homespuns

(just the top is done so far)

My Home or Yours BOM Quilt (almost done each block) I forgot to add this one to my list over at Tallgrass...Jacquie can I add one more to the list :) You have seen quite a few of these individual blocks as I've completed them throughout the year, I think I have 4 blocks to finish and then time to sew together, layer, quilt, & hang!! Yay!

 Until next time, have a great day.
