UFO Challenge

The UFO Challenge is a great thing. I have 12 tops of my own (most of them have been around for years) waiting to be quilted. When you are a longarm quilter everyone else's quilts get done first. The UFO Challenge has prompted me to set a goal this year I intend on keeping. I also have many tops started. My goal for this year is 2-fold; actually probably 3-fold.
1. Quilt 1 finished top each month
2. Finish 1 top each month
3. Quilt the top that was finished that month

I actually quilted the top that I finished in January on February 1st. My excuse is that I joined the challenge late. Both of these quilts need binding and I plan on doing that Friday night. The top I finished and quilted for January is "Field of Flowers" from McCall's Quilting /August 2009.

I got started on Joseph's Coat.

The colours for your JC quilt look lovely as does your other quilt. I should take a leaf out of your book and make similar goals for myself. Will try my best ;) and let you know how I get on. Cheers
