Judy's UFO Parade

This is a long post, so you've been warned. Tomorrow, Judy of Patchwork Times is hosting a UFO Parade. It's a simple idea, link to a post of all your UFO's. Hopefully this will help me get motivated to finish some!
Jacks on Six
Needs to be quilted and bound. This is a pattern from Bonnie Hunter's website.

2006 Quilted Angel BOM
All the blocks are finished. I got stuck on the pieced setting triangles. Maybe I should draw them out in EQ now that I have learned how to use it.

2009 BOM
The top is finished, all it needs is custom quilting. Until recently, I didn't feel like I had the skill to do it justice. Maybe this year...
 
2010 BOM Drunkard's Path Variations
 
This was a BOM I created for my friends to help us get over our fear of curves. We ran out of steam about half way through. I want to finish it because I hand dyed fabric especially for it.
 
Antique Postage Stamp 
 I'm not sure I should count this one. It's an on going project. The squares finish at 1". It takes me about an hour to sew a 8 x 8 section and another hour for picking colors and prepping fabric.
 
Bali Stars
This is fussy cut 6-pointed stars made with batik sarongs my mother bought me in Bali. Just needs to be quilted and bound.
 
Buffalo Ridge
 
Needs to have the quilting ripped out and redone. Tension problems.
 
Buffalo Jewels
I liked the colors of Buffalo Ridge so much I decided to do it again with a few changes. I was ready to slap on some borders when my daughter said it deserved something better. So pieced borders it is. I just need an idea.....
 
Carpenter's Square (Green Quilt #5)
Needs borders and quilting.
 
Circles
I started this in Houston in 2007. I took a class called "Cure Curve Phobia". I was so excited about the class I bought the fabric at lunch and started this. After taking a Thom Atkins beading class I decided this should have beads. Needs to be quilted first.
 
Funky Wrench
I loved this pattern and had to try it. It might be finished. Maybe I should make a baby quilt out of it.
 
Giraffe
I made this in a Nancy Brown applique class. It needs to be hand quilted. I need to find someone to teach me.
 
Gordian Knot
I have three of these, all slightly different. Two have had the outline quilting finished. One needs to be fixed. The bands don't line up and it's obvious. Then I need to plan the rest of the quilting.
 
Grandmother's Flower Garden
Just needs a few more flowers and quilting.
 
Hand-dyed Log Cabin
I dyed the fabric in a class. The log cabin is one of Judy Martin's, with stars in the corner. After starting I realised that my 1/4" foot was actually making wider seams. So the stars don't match. I need to decide how to fix it.
 
Jan Sassaman Quilt
I made this in a workshop with Jane Sassaman. Do I want to finish it? I don't know. I'm going to think about it.
 
Kaffe's Arrowhead
I made a baby quilt with Anita Grossman Solomon's pattern "Anita's Arrowhead". I loved her instructions so much I started this. It's early Kaffe Fassett prints and shot cottons. The top is finished, just needs quilting. I want to get this quilted in time for the local quilt show in June.
 
Kaffe's Waffles
I made this with the leftover fabric from the above quilt. Needs quilting.
 
Keryn's Stars
I started this to use up 2 1/2" scraps.
 
Limelight
This is a pattern from one of Pat Speth's books. Some of the blocks are made.
 
Making Ends Meet II, civil war style
The top is finished just needs quilting. I actually had the back pinned on my longarm when I discovered that is was smaller than the top. Ugh!
 
Making Ends Meet I
This is on the longarm right now!
 
Millwheel (green quilt #7)
I have a lot of blocks made, just needs to be put together.
 
Minny Muu
A cute pattern I saw on the Happy Zombie blog. It's the same polka dot fabric as Funky Wrench.
 
Petaluma Quilt Guild Challenge 2011
Needs to be quilted and I think beading, too.
 
Scrappy Irish Chain II
The photo is not the actuall quilt but another I made with same pattern. I made this to practise feathered wreath quilting for another, larger quilt in the same pattern. Some of the quilting is finished. Then I took it off the logarm to work on something else.
 
Scrappy Irish Chain III
This is the quilt I need to practise feathered wreaths for. Then I discovered I made it too big. I need to remove two rows of blocks before quilting.
 
Star of Istanbul
This is a long-term project, my next show quilt hopefully. My goal is to have it finished by January 2015 for the SF quilt guild show.
 
Tiny Hexagons
These are 1/2". It's about the size of a candle mat. I am thinking of tying is since it's so small.
 
Twist and Twirl
Just needs the binding!
 
So that's all the personal projects I need to finish. This doesn't include the charity quilts (23) or customer quilts (5).
