I promised to show you my UFO (unfinished objects) quilts before the end of the year.
First I had to narrow it down to only those that I have actually started to quilt or I am actually in the process of working on. I have about 300 quilt tops, mostly vintage and antique, but I don’t consider them UFO unless I have started to quilt them or I am in the process of re-working them in some way.
The first one Is from 2010
here is the back
I have been working on it off and on for ever, but I don’t think it wants to be finished. When I work on it feel tense, normally I feel relaxed when I work on a quilt.
Next is this
I started re-making a top a few years ago, here is one block
I started a quilt with these blocks a few years ago, I have all the fabric I need to make a quilt, but it got set aside, then packed away
I have had this quilt in the frame for a few years. I just need to make up my mind to sit at the frame and do it…I am not good at quilting in a frame (I use a hoop) but want to learn to be comfortable on a frame as well
I started the quilting on this a long time ago. It is fun quilting because I am just making up the design as I go along. I stopped to start a large whole cloth quilt and never got back to it.
I got these blocks all cleaned and pressed, and started piecing them together
I got 2 of these blocks appliqued and got distracted with another project so they ended up being packed away
Another applique that got set aside
This one I made from reproduction fabrics and got a lot of the quilting done before I started something new
I have about 1/2 of these blocks done (made with my old shirts)
need to sew these blocks together and add a border
I need to finish piecing this one….this is nearly done
I did all the piecing on this but stopped before adding the border
This is a repair project that I stalled on….hope to get back to work on it soon
and here are a few of those 300 tops
So even though I finished a lot of quilts this year there is always something not yet finished, and many more not yet started.
Maybe I can add all of these to the finished list in 2015
Happy New Year and Happy Quilting
