This is one of my favorite blog parties! I simply have to jump in and play along! I have plenty of UFO's and I've already listed 12 of them for other challenges, so here are the ones I will concentrate on for the 1st Quarter...
1. Quilt Diamonds Are Forever:
I started this quilt in February 2014 and finished the top in late 2017. I will be so happy to have this bright and beautiful quilt finished and ready for some serious cuddling! It is my Guild UFO Challenge quilt for January, so it has to be done by February 6. And my friend Joanne has offered to let me use her long-arm to quilt it - Yay!!!
2. Hudson's Dreaming of Planes:
Hudson is our 6-year-old grandson - he's a real cutie pie! And last winter he informed me that he had outgrown his baby quilt and needed a big-boy quilt. I pulled fabrics and settled on a design, hoping to get it to him quickly, but somehow it never even got started. So I set a deadline to have it done to give him when we visited at Thanksgiving - and that didn't happen either! So, this week I decided to get 'er done so I would have it to give to him the next time we visit in North Carolina (where almost all our grandchildren live). The flimsy is almost done and the quilting is scheduled!!!
3. Back Door Quilts - January - March:
This is a monthly series of Back Door designs by Cottage Creek Quilts that I've been wanting to do for several years now, and this is the year! I DO enjoy changing out small quilts with each month or season!!! I adore the fresh, modern color scheme used by Shabby Fabrics but didn't want to purchase the laser cut kits so I'm using my own fabrics.
4. First 3 months of small quilts in Art to Heart's "Imagine":
Again, small monthly quilts! I will display these on my 12-inch standing frame on our hearth to brighten our living area :)
5. First 3 Blocks of Dear Daughter:
This was a free BOM offered by Sherri Noel of Rebecca Mae Designs in 2016. I absolutely fell in love with it but just couldn't find time to start it back then. I saved all the patterns and hope to keep up with it this year - I love it so!!!
6. Rag Quilt for Me!!!
I've been hoarding some flannels for a cuddly morning-time quilt - me, my Bible, my coffee, and Rocky purring in my lap - life is good! The box with those fabrics is buried under other UFO boxes right now, so I can't show a picture just yet. But I'll be digging it out soon - we are making rag quilts at one of our Guild workshops next month, so this one should be easy to accomplish :)
7. Mint Chocolate Wedding Ring - to flimsy stage:
Long time UFO - one of my oldest! I'm steadily chipping away at this one and would love to have it done early in the year!
8. Bonnie's Mystery Quilt this year - On Ringo Lake - to flimsy stage:
All the sections are sewn except for finishing up assembling #6. Then I'll need to assemble the 50 blocks, cut pieces for the setting blocks (it's on-point), and assemble the flimsy. Might be a stretch to hope for this one in the first quarter, but I can dream, can't I?
I think that will do it for this first quarter!
I'm linking up with Leanne at She Can Quilt...
Hugs & Blessings!
