2012 UFO's (Unfinished Objects)

1. Dawn's Fall Quilt

This quilt needs the binding completed.

Binding completed 02/13/12 this quilt is now in Florida.
2. Balloon Race

This quilt needs the binding attached and a hanging sleeve. I have determined that I like to use a 2" strip of fabric for my bindings. I perfer the look of hand sewn bindings which can take awhile depending on the size of the quilt.

3. Bright Cats

This one also needs binding.

4. Blooming Nine Patch

This one also needs binding. Are you beginning to see a pattern here?

5. Bargello Color Wheel
I started this in the fall of 2010 and you can see that Nermal insisted on helping!

I decided to make 2 wallhangings. The wedges are all sewn toghether and a facing has been added to make them square. I still need to add a couple borders and the center circle.

Borders and center circle completed on 1/24/12
These are both at Jennifer's being quilted.
6. Bargello Black and Gold Allover Jacket

It took a year or so to collect all the fabric for this jacket. I have cut the strips and sewn them together. Now they need cut in the vary widths required for Bargello.

This still hasn't been cut apart.

I recently found the pattern so I need to work on this over the winter!!!

Some of this fabric has found it's way into other projects!
I originally wanted to make this jacket out of Red and Black.  I may go back to that idea when I actually make it!

I didn’t even go looking for the Bargello Jacket! I keep telling myself I will be losing weight and I don’t want to make a jacket I will only wear a short time.

7. Starring the Buckeyes

I'm not sure the actual name of this quilt. I think it was donated to the Kids n Kamp Celebrity Quilt Auction at the Shoe in 2008. I fell in love with the pattern and decided to make one of my own. Each block is 8" and I'm using Marti Michell's acrylic templates. I have a large stash of Scarlet and Gray fabric. This quilt uses a number of Moda Marbles and Robert Kaufman Fusions. I have a few of the blocks done.

I have completed a few more of the blocks.

8. Marti Michell Sampler
I took a class from Marti at the 2010 Lake Farm Parks Quilt Show. She displayed a number of samplers in class in 12” and 6” sizes. So I started one using my Scarlet and Gray stash that includes twelve 12" blocks on point, with a 24" Carpenter’s Wheel center medallion block.

This top is completed and quilted!! It needs a hanging sleeve and binding.

Hanging sleeve and binding completed 01/12/2012

It was more difficult then I would have thought to manipulate this 80" x 80" quilt to attach the binding by machine. Hand sewing the binding to the back of the quilt was actually easy in comparison.

To say I was excited is putting it mildly!!!  Check out the above link for photos!!

9. Christmas Tree Card Holder

I was able to have this hanging on the door for Christmas, but it still needs the binding completed.

The binding was done on this one I think in Feburary!

10. Checkerboard Squares

This is a pattern I’m testing for The Quilt Pattern Magazine. The top needs finished and then I may quilt it myself.

Top completed 01/03/2012
I decided to have Jennifer quilt this one.

11. Kim’s Wedding Quilt

This quilt needs a hanging sleeve and binding.  I should actually get this one done because I need to take it for show and tell in June!!!

This quilt needs designed, pieced, quilted and bound by September of 2012.

I think it will be a sampler using Marti Michell Perfect Patchwork templates.

12. Stars and Stripes Allover

This quilt needs a hanging sleeve and binding.

I plan to do better with my UFO’s this year!
