New Year, New UFO Challenge

Happy late holidays! I spent the week after Christmas with my folks in Florida and it was a nice and relaxing time! Then back to reality and month end at work. I am behind on my book reviews and hope to catch up this week.

I was also late getting my UFOs for the 2020 UFO Challenge together. All of my quilting items are still a mess in the basement, but I was able to unearth enough to put together 12 projects.

  1. Aviatrix - carried over from last year
  2. Memories of Monet - kit I've had since I worked at Best Friends Quilt Shop that closed many years ago.
  3. Judy Martin log cabin - kit I've had cut for many years
  4. RWB quilt for Matt - still don't have fabric, but that pattern was picked out a couple of years ago when he moved in for 2 months. Also was a carry over from last year.
  5. Tucker University BOM - only a couple of years old and most of the blocks are finished.
  6. Literary Lounger - a kit from several years ago
  7. Pinwheel Puzzle - Kit since BFQS years
  8. Queen of Hearts table runner - a thimbleberries kit so many years old, too
  9. Talkin' Turkey - from a Bonnie Hunter class maybe 4 years ago
  10. Jellystone - a kit from a few years ago
  11. Twinkle - a kit from my current quilt shop so maybe from 2 years ago
  12. Jammin' Jelly - a kit cut out last fall
Over the weekend, I had a day to organize my recent finished tops and some of the table runners that I want to get done. I got everything paired up with the backings and made sure I had bindings. I made 2 backs and one binding. The stack in the front is all of that on top of a bag from a customer with her quilt and back in it. In the back are 3 quilts - 2 need binding stitched down and one is a rag quilt that needs snipped. Quite a bit of work to do!

The dogs are exhausted just seeing all the work to be done!
