Leah Day, over at the Free Motion Quilting Project, has started a UFO Sunday Quilt-Along
and since one of my goals for this year is to lighten my load of random unfinished projects, I've decided to join this challenge.
I've got a few to choose from:
1. The Sampler Quilt from the local quilt guild beginning quilting class I took 2 years ago in the Winter and Spring 2010 (thanks Margaret and Annie!).
status - Blocks are done, but just pinned on a flannel sheet.
needs - blocks sized, sashings, borders, layering and quilting, and binding.
notes - I hope to quilt each block with an individual design to suit the pattern,
and I can't decide whether to put it all together first, or do a quilt-as-you-go (which I've never tried before)
2. The Diamonds Quilt I started in a Kaffe Fassett Design Class 2 years ago in October 2010 (thanks Kaffe and Brandon! And Anja!).
status - Almost done designing, but ran out of vertical wall space!
needs - a little re-arranging, and 3 more rows of diamond design, then sewing diamonds together, layering and quilting, and binding.
notes - Fabrics are the focus, so quilting will be simple lines.
3. Needle Turn Applique Sampler from a local class 2 years ago (thanks Judy) in September 2010.
status - 2 blocks are done, 1 is half done, and one is not started yet (it's only a 4 block beginner sampler)
needs - blocks hand stitched, blocks sewn together, maybe a border, layering and quilting, and binding.
notes - could do hand work as ferry wait line project (instead of knitting). Uncertain about quilting patterns for applique.
4. Story Quilt from a Mary Lou Weidman class 1 year ago in May 2011 (thanks Mary Lou!).
status - What you see is what you get! Although I do have the "story" part all sketched out and ready to go.
needs - the wonky border blocks finished, the story sketch photo copied/enlarged/outlined into pattern pieces, story pieces cut, arranged, and appliqued, story and border sewn together, layering and quilting, and binding, and embellishing.
notes - this one has a long way to go!
5. Giant Flower Quilt from a class started last January (thanks Mary!).
status - flower is fused, photo is all outlined into pattern pieces, and copied on tracing paper for proper placement, and I have all needed fabrics selected.
needs - picture needs finishing (missing the bee you can see in the small 8x10 photo) - pieces cut and fused, then layering and quilting, and binding.
notes - quilting is mostly thread sketching, which I have never done before!
6. Turtles Quilt started in "Curves" class last January (thanks Barb!)
status - one turtle finished.
needs - lots of work
notes - haven't decided what size quilt to make, or maybe this one will become a potholder!
Well, I hate to admit this, but I've also got two projects cut out but not sewn (a counting panel for granddaughter, and a raggy quilt for her too), plus several piles of fabrics that I fell in love with and started matching/blending with other fabrics for unknown projects . . .
Yikes, and I almost forgot the whole cloth quilt from Leah's stippling quilt-along that's all starched, and drawn, and ready to quilt
(wow it's hard to photograph red!)
So now the only question is - Where do I begin?!
