Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

New Year’s Eve UFO Challenge

Finn is having a New Year’s Eve UFO Challenge. No prizes, just the satisfaction in seeing how many projects collectively the participants can get done by the end of the year.  I’ve listed three as my challenge number.  Admittedly, two of these quilts are on other UFO lists, but I’m all for all the support I can get to see that I get these quilts done.

#1 – The Double Wedding Ring

This is from a couple of weeks ago.  I think I have one more ring to quilt and I’ll be half way through the quilting. (I’ve just about given up on having this quilt finished by November 29th, so the next date would be December 18th).

#2 – Cream & Green Quilt

This is the other quilt on one of my other UFO challenge lists.  The blocks are from a swap I participated in the Fall of 2006.  I’m quilting each block and sashing then setting them together.  There are 20 blocks and this one is due December 31st.

#3 – Compass Lone Star

This is another quilt-as-you-go project.  I need to get the background quilted and then start adding the pieced borders.  The plan is to have a border of LeMoyne Stars and who knows what else — I’ll have to pull my pattern and see. This quilt is not on any UFO list –this year.  Both it and the Cream & Green were on a list 2 years ago and as you can see I didn’t get them done.

Come join the challenge.  The button on my side bar will take you to Finn’s blog for more information.

3 Thoughts on “New Year’s Eve UFO Challenge

  1. I am also joining Finn’s challenge and will be headed back to Bari’s Quilters Accountability to help get it done since it was so helpful in meeting the Spring Finish Challenge. See you there!

    Good luck and wishing you godspeed on the DWR (mine is on my YEC list too!)

  2. Wow Pam, those are truly impressive project you’re choosing to finish. All three are gorgeous!! It’s been years and years since I’ve done any of the quilt as you go. Might just have to re-think that and give it another try. Getting big quilts basted to quilt gets harder and harder for me.
    Thanks so much for the plug, cheering really does help, doesn’t it?? Hugs, Finn
