I Am a Little Behind

June UFO

What do they say? Better late than never.
I am participating in Judy's UFO Challenge.
Number 8 was drawn for the UFO for June. I had 2 things listed for that number. 
At least I got one of them done.

This quilt top was from a block exchange with my mom and sisters. I think it is from about 1999 or 2000. We all used the same background fabric. The blocks had to be red and blue with the background and they could be any size. It finished to be queen size. I  don't do many bed-size quilts.

Number 2 was drawn for July. I am really getting a late start on this. I have 2 quilts listed for #2. It will be a miracle if I get one of them done. But any way you look at it I am doing better than last year. In 2010 I kept up with a UFO Challenge through May. I guess Summer has a way of doing me in.

The first one listed for #2 is a small one. The applique is hand done. I do not do much hand work any more. I started it in 2009 and finished the top at retreat March 2010. 

These 2 twin size quilts are for the beds in one of the quest rooms. They just need a border to finish up the tops. I wanted to put applique borders on them. They have been sitting around for a while (I think since 2006). I might end up not doing the applique just so I can get them done. I am afraid by the time I get them done I will have repainted that room.
