UFO Incentive

Rhonda from Quilter in the GAP is encouraging quilters to finish up UFOs by hosting a quarterly finish along.  I missed out on the first quarter, but I am signing up to finish a few UFOs for this quarter.  The sign up is open for one more week so you still have time to take part.  I'm eager to display the items that have been sitting around looking for attention that I am targeting for this quarter.  These are shown in no particular order.

I started this quilt last summer using a tutorial by Sharon from Vrooman's Quilts.  All of the blocks are together.  It needs to be layered, basted, quilted, and bound.

I haven't touched my postage stamp quilt since I started it 2 weeks ago.  I  have all of the 2.5 charms cut and I'm determined to get it finished.
This paper pieced batik quilt was started as part of the "Too Good to Cut" Challenge two years ago.  The pattern was for a wall quilt, but I will add a few more blocks, make it lap size and call it finished.

This quilt was started about 18 months ago.  It is from one of the PS I Love You books.  I love the 3 dimensional pinwheels.  I don't know why I stopped working on this one.  I really like it and think it will be a great baby quilt.
This was made for Marcia's Scrappy Quilt Challenge back in January it just needs to be layered, basted, quilted and bound.
Five quilts seems like a lot for me.  I have only finished one quilt, a dryer topper, hamper topper, and a tabernacle cloth for my church in the first 3 months of this year.  I think it is doable since 2 of the items are completed tops and 2 of the others just need a few blocks to be finished.  I would like to use the first quilt for Sarah's H2H Charity Challenge which is due on May 27th so I will work on that this week.  It's not to late to enter the H2H Challenge for 2012 so check the link or the button on the sidebar to see what it is all about.


  1. HA - now silly me, thought the quilt looked familiar - so DUH me! It will make a great H2H quilt. And the pinwheels, oh my - and set on the yellow they just look yummy. I was just thinking of my neglected postage stamp - thank you for the little lovelies by the way.

  2. You are certainly busy them all.

  3. Ambitious list, but they're all so beautiful, they'll be so much more fun finished! I love the first one, its bright colors are perfect for an H2H quilt! But they're all just gorgeous - good luck in the challenge!

  4. Nice start on your charm quilt. Yes, it is time to get back to it because I look forward to seeing how it turns out. The others are pretty, too. Nice brights!

  5. How is it that those UFO's pile up so fast. You certainly have some bright fun quilts awaiting the finish!

  6. How nice to have so many pretty things to work on.

    Thank you for visiting my blog and for introducing me to yours.

  7. That first quilt is darling! Oh, I have a few of those languishing in the pile quilts too. :)

  8. You've got a nice group of projects here! I especially love the brightly colored ones. I hope you're making good progress on them. Thanks for the reminder of when the H2H quilts are due. I was thinking I had longer, but wow, only a month left, yikes!

  9. You have some great projects!! Isn't it cool to have Blogland to help us finish our projects in progress? I wouldn't get even half the amount done without all of the Bloggie helps =)

    thanks for sharing your pictures...they are inspiring. =)


  10. Hi Katie....your quilts look great. I find the first one quite interesting. LOL ....Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my work...and my baby!!!! She is a fun ride...nothing like a shiny red convertible.....I have the little blocks that you sent me out on my sewing table....going to do some little thing with them soon. thanks again Katiel

  11. So many beautiful tops! I am good at finishing the tops but I procrastinate when it comes to layering, quilting and binding them. Nothing better than a WIP finish, especially when it has been "IP" for so long.


I am interested in what you have to say so please leave a comment.
