Welcome to my world where I try to figure out what I'm going to do next! These days, it is mostly quilting, but you never know what it might be... come find out with me!

a UFO challenge

You know I can't resist a challenge!  and this one just might help me finish up a few UFOs that have been hanging around.  The Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild is doing a UFO challenge - you sign up and list the UFOs you want to get finished, and then as you get them done and show them off, you get the satisfaction of knowing you've finished them, plus the possibility of maybe winning something.  Sounds pretty good to me.  I've put 5 on my list - here's 4 of them, the fifth needs to have a picture taken, but it is a pile of X & + blocks I won in a block lottery at a VMQG meeting - it may even end up as two quilts - it was a good meeting!

Hugs and Kisses - quilting
Bliss trellis piecing
Sunflowers and Baskets - quilting
Pineapple Blossom
 Some are fairly recent - started within the last year, but a couple have been hanging around for a few years, and it really is time I got them done.  I've started with the second one pictured above, and have made some progress - 

two more borders then I'll get it sandwiched and quilted and it will be done.

Linking up to The Needle and Thread Network  - go see what Canadians from coast to coast are working on this week! and to Freshly Pieced WIP Wednesday

 Happy quilting!

Can't wait to see Blissful finished. It will be a stunning quilt!

Vicki Miller said...

Good luck with the challenge. Some lovely pieces there just begging to be finished.

Bliss indeed. My favourite is the pineapples! I don't know about you, but our weather is very conducive to quilting! ;)

Oh My Gosh - those are some friggin' fantastic UFO's - it would be hard to figure out which to pick first!

Kris said...

Wow those are great UFO's I am scared to look at what I have. I keep starting new things lately so hope to finish a few too.

Regina said...

Fantastic ufos, great idea how to get them finished!

You've set yourself a big challenge but I'm sure you can do it. They're all lovely quilts and I like your colour choices, but I have admit that Pineapple basket is my favourite. I can't wait to see them finished.
