Back in January Meridethe at Pomegranate and Chintz had a linkup in regards to 17 UFO projects for 2017. It was not about attempting to finish them all but progressing somewhat on each one.
My original 17 in 2017 January list is HERE for my records. I had come up with 20 projects. Once I’d worked on a few during the first month or two, it dawned on me that I’d prefer to not progress on each one…..or I’d have the same list at the end of the year! I decided to just focus on a portion of the list.
Some of the projects on my list were as small as only having 4-5 blocks started while others were in the end stages, just requiring one more block, or a border, etc.
Referencing my original list and post I see that I ended up working on 11 out of the 20, with 6 finishes, 1 close to being finished, and progress made on the other four.
Some Quilt Finishes :
- February 2017 : Finished tying and binding this gradient quilt for my youngest son / I’d started it while participating in a Rainbow Scrap Challenge project
- April : Stars and Spools was completed : Applique, EPP hexies and extensive hand quilting
- July : Tied my Quilty 365 quilt top
- August : Scrappy Granny finished : extensively hand quilted
- Also in this collage another border was completed for the Flower Medallion.
Stars and Spools will probably always be my favorite quilt because I made it up as I went along :)
While the center basket is from a pattern, I am also making up my own borders. It’s been a long time since I completed the second one. I hope to return to this next year.
I tied the 1857 Album quilt ( couch quilt size ) and gifted it to my son’s family, where it is in constant use. They have several of my quilts down there and I’d sent my Snowball Quilt
home with my oldest son in November for his birthday.
The WHIMSY table runner was quilted very simply and given as a gift at some point in the summer.
The projects that have seen progress over the year :
This Botanical top is currently in the hoop and I am hand quilting the last block:
Little Baskets: had a few started at the end of 2016 and 36 are done as now ( using the RSC color suggestions of the month for these)
Airship Propeller Blocks : again, using the RSC color suggestions of the month…and hand appliqueing them, I had five done in the beginning of the year, and have completed 15 thus far.
Elizabeth’s Pride Applique : I had 7 completed at the beginning of the year and 13 are done now.
Looking over my review I was surprised, as I didn’t realize how many on that original list I did tackle after all ! :)
Here’s wishing us all a wonderful New Year :)
