This will be the most revealing of the UFO parade. Wow! I knew I had all these projects, but somehow they seemed smaller when they were folded up in the drawers. I would rather not date these projects because they are some of my oldest UFOs. Many of these are class samples.
- Snowman table topper
- 2 More Snowmen table toppers
- 2 winter Banners
- Winter wall hanging from a beginner class that I taught
- Mystery sampler from long ago at a retreat
- (top right) Ugly fabric table topper challenge
- (middle right) Strippy baby quilt
- (bottom Left) Crazy Stars - King Size
- (bottom right) pastel log cabin baby quilt
Stories: #1 - I had a quilting plan but I didn't feel confident to execute it so I packed it away, #4 - I thought it needed borders...Why??, #5 I didn't like it so I never finished it.
- Fall Banner
- Spring Banner
- Summer Banner
These were all class samples.
- Ugly block challenge. Some of these are actually fun, and it was a great learning tool.
- Stiles and path blocks....and lots of them.
Applique wall hanging- love the colors, love the pattern, no desire to finish the applique Holiday topper - missing the applique. Does it really need it? I think not - finish and gift to a non-sewer as they won't notice how uneven it is ;-)
- My quilt group bought me this vintage top for Christmas
- A special friend made me this king size tumbler quilt - pieced by hand. I want to add a few borders so it covers the mattress
Bonnie Hunter Pattern- Virginia Bound. Let's just say I like paper piecing LESS than applique. These few blocks were enough for me. Christmas Tree Skirt - Will have to do some serious thinking on what the pattern is. As I look at the pile of blocks, I am wondering what I was thinking with the colors. Perhaps when I lay them out I won't be thinking about the trash. I think it makes a hexagon, but I will have to think some more on it. Table topper that I was trying the technique. I was tired of it when I had to repress and arrange the pieces. Let me clarify that I didn't read the directions well and that is why I had to re-press them Super easy Runner that I was testing. Thank goodness my helper is only counting the soldiers and not my projects.
Fall Wall hanging- I actually took this apart a few years ago because I didn't like the small pumpkin color. I replaced it with the more muted color. I like this project. I am not sure why I never finished it.
More class projects - A fall and spring runner Simple striped runner Snowman wall hanging done with Chenille - another applique
- Patches and pinwheels- needs a border (even my helper has grown weary of the photo shoot)
- Bow Ties - This is my oldest UFO. It needed one more border. I should have done that when I had the plan straight in my head
- I think this was going to be a wall quilt in the TV room- good news...It still matches. (Top left)
- These are different blocks than number 1, but the same fabric. (Top right)
- Duplicate (bottom left)....
- Pile of 25 patch blocks - alias bingo squares
I hope I captured them all - Yes, 35 UFOs in this post alone. On the bright side, lots of these projects are small in size and they shouldn't take long to quilt and finish.
I am not finished. Stop back on Sunday for part 4 where I reveal the balance and the grand total. I decided that I would not count the projects that I have cut out but not started.
My kids often ask me- What are you going to do with all these when you finish them. Do any of you worry about that?
If you have any questions about my projects or where I got the patterns, just leave me a comment. I love to hear from my readers!!
