current UFO

This is the current UFO that I'm working on. I used to make a lot of scrappy quilts with blocks like this. Making blocks like this no longer interests me. I have 31 blocks and I need to decide what to do with them. I doubt I will get this project finished this year. I have made a decision about the UFO reduction project. Fall is not a good time for me. I didn't reach my goal. I do much better with my UFO's after the 1st of the year. I'm going to start the count and record over in 2010 and see how well I do. I'm going to try for a reduction of 25 projects in 25 weeks.

3 more done

I finished 2 quilts & this pillow. I didn't get pictures of the quilts.

back pack finished!

This UFO is a piece waiting to be quilted and made into a backpack. I started it in 2008. I was waiting on the zipper and the webbing. I love this style backpack. I wear them all the time.

another UFO finished!

I've been working on this UFO off and on for a few weeks. It was going to be the valance on a window. It was cut out and ready to be sewn, then I changed my mind about the fabric. When I came across it a few weeks ago, I thought it would make a nice tote bag. It was finished today. It'll get a lot of use. It's the perfect size for short trips in the car.

another UFO finished!

I believe I started this one last year. I'm glad to have it done. It's a 5 fat quarter tote bag. I'm working on several UFO's and should have another one done soon.

I'm currently working on several UFO's. I've had a little trouble finding the supplies that I need so I ordered them today. It'll take a little time for them to come in. I hope to have something to show in a day or so.

UFO update

I started on July 1st and it's July 23rd and I've got 4 UFO's off my list! I've been working on several UFO's. I hope to have one finished soon. I'm having a little trouble finding the supplies to finish these projects.

giving a UFO away

This UFO is from a class I took. I'm never going to finish it. There was another quilter in the class that wants to make her quilt bigger. I think she'll be surprised when I give her my UFO.

I'm currently working on several UFO's & organizing my house. I've been ironing scraps and cutting them up for my future scrap quilts. I've found several UFO's that I want to finish but, I haven't been able to find the fabric that goes with them. I hope to have pictures to post of finished UFO's soon.

1st UFO finished-making progress

I cut the corners out of the totebag for the box bottom and decided to do something with those pieces. I sewed them together and made a pin cushion out of it. This is the finished tote bag and pin cushion. I'm trying to decide what UFO I will try to finish next. My goal is to work on it a bit everyday until it's done.

a Pin Cushion!

This pin cushion was made from the leftover block from the current UFO I'm working on. I'm not sure which side should be the top. I've posted pictures of both sides. The tote bag is coming along and I hope to finish it tomorrow.

July 1st

To start off this effort I'm starting with 3 projects. The 13 blocks below were going to be the start of a bed sized quilt. The center fabric has been misplaced and I'm no longer interested in making a large quilt with these blocks. I'll be making a tote bag with 12 of the blocks and I'm not sure what I'll be doing with the left over block. I plan to work on this project a little each day until it's done. The project below was a block of the month called "Gulf Coast Lighthouses". I've lost interest in it. I'll be posting it on ebay today.
This UFO below is leftover half square triangle blocks from another project. I've held on to these for several years, I've lots interest in them and I'm going to give them away. I know a quilter that likes to work with pieces like these. I'll be mailing them to her tomorrow.

1st post-an explanation

I'm a quilter and I've been at this since I was 17 years old. I've started many projects that I haven't finished. This blog will chronicle my attempt to reduce by UFO's by 25 projects from July 1st to December 31st 2009. It this works for me I may do this again in 2010. My ultimate goal is not to have any UFO's!

Please check back on July 1st and see what I'm up to.
