2011 UFO Summary

Of the 18 UFOs I listed in December 2010, 11 were completed. Even listing 18 was crazy to begin with. I am very excited about the 11 that I did get done. I am so thankful for Judy's UFO Challenge because it really motivated me to finish some of my own quilts. 

Here are the UFOs that I did finish in 2011.

This Kaleidoscope String Quilt was started in March 2008 in a class with Bayside Quilters.

This dimensional hand applique was started in my Baltimore Album Bee last year in 2009.

The inspiration for this top is the Jane Sassaman fabrics. It was pieced in 2005.

 I finished this top in early 2010. It was a block of the month from "The Quilt Show" in 2008.

I got this quilt top a long time ago at an auction that my quilt guild had. The center was finished and there was fabric included for the border. I think I put the borders on at retreat in 2007. I am not sure how old it is but it is vintage fabrics.

This quilt is machine appliqued. It is probably from about 2006.

This quilt top was from a block exchange with my mom and sisters. I think it is from about 1999 or 2000.

 This scrappy top was made from a block exchange with my mom and sisters in 2004-2005. The inspiration for this quilt came from a quilt we saw at the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show in 2004.

 This top was baby sized. I made a throw in 2010 and this was made with the left-overs. I decided to add borders to make it large enough for a gift for a friend.

This star quilt was started in 2004 when I went to visit my sister in Washington state. While we were there we went to the Sisters Oregon Quilt Show. It was a 6 hour drive and I appliqued when I was not driving. My sister gave me the extra stars and circles from a quilt she was working on. I put the top together at retreat in 2007. 

This Joseph's Coat was started in early 2010. I was following along with a quilt-along but I fell behind. In the quilt-along they were hand appliqueing but I appliqued mine on the machine. I was so excited to get this done. I think it is the most beautiful quilt I have ever made.

Congratulations on your finishes! You finished more UFO's than my total finished quilts (so far) this year. And your Joseph's Coat is, indeed, very beautiful!

I myself wouldn´t be able to point a favourite. They´re all beautiful. Congratulations.
