UFO Challenge 2012

I will be participating in Judy Laquidara's UFO Challenge again next year. Looking back, I can’t believe how many quilts I finished this year. My goal was to get 12 UFOs to stage one (top completed) and 12 to stage two (quilted and bound). I completely finished 20 quilts! I think having some accountability helped me meet this goal.

I had 27 UFOs and 24 Ready to Quilt projects a year ago. Now I have 22 UFOs and 32 Ready to Quilt. Some of my numbers seem to be going in the wrong direction!

Of the quilts on my list, these are the ones I really want to get to the “ready to be quilted” stage this year. All of them have some kind of problem, which is why they aren't finished. I chose six so it would be a reasonable amount of work to accomplish:
2006 2nd Saturday
Arctic Appliqué
Buffalo Ridge
Farm Appliqué
Gram’s Memorial Quilt
Hand-dyed Log Cabin

I never made a master list last year, only the sidebar list, which I changed as I went along. Here's all the UFOs:
2006 2nd Saturday
2010 BOM Drunkard’s Path Variations

Pretty impressive...20 finishes! A few years of UFO challenges and you'll really have that list whittled down! (I think I'm so funny!) I really enjoy seeing other people with extensive projects lists...makes me feel normal.
