Update on 2011 UFO's (UnFinished Objects)

I have added comments to my 12 UFO's from 2011.
1. Simple Star which uses Moda Birchwood Lane flannel
This needs a mitered border added.

I looked at this one,  but it didn't get any farther then that!

2. Alaska Photo Album quilt
I bought this kit when DH and I traveled to Alaska for our 20th Anniversary the summer of 2008.  I have started cutting out the 'photo's.

The top is finished and in line to be quilted!!

3. 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.

Still needs binded!

4. Bright Cats
This one also needs binding.

Still needs binded!

5. Blooming Nine Patch
This one also needs binding.  Are you beginning to see a pattern here?

Still need binded!

6. Gerber Daisy Chain
This one also needs binding and a hanging sleeve.

This one was completed and entered in the 2011 Lake Farm Parks Quilt Show in February!

This is the first UFO selected to work on in 2011.  Which is great because I can finish it and enter it in the Lake Farm Parks Quilt Show on January 19th.  It is a wall quilt at 42" x 62".  I found the backing to make the hanging sleeve and the binding fabric.

Hanging Sleeve is attached and needs hand sewn down.

Binding on a diagonal has been cut, sewn together and pressed.

7. Sunshine and Shadow/Trip Around the World
This is one of the first quilts I did back in the early 90's.  I had it machine quilted last year.  I don't really like it very much.  It needs a binding, so I may try doing the binding my machine.  It has a flannel back so it will need a wider binding probably 2.25" or 2.5".

Still needs binded!

8. Bargello Color Wheel
I started this last fall and you can see that Nermal insisted on helping!  The wedges are done, I need to decide on the final layout.

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.

I think what's keep me from finishing this one is it's shape.  If the final quilt looked like the one below maybe I could more forward. 

9. 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!!!

10. Midnight Glaicier Purse
This and the jacket pattern are from Figure Flattering Quiltwear.

I have the purse sides already sewn together. I'm letting the zipper keep me from completing this purse.

All that needs done now is to whip stitch the handles.

11. 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.

12.  Marti Michell Sampler
I took a class from Marti at the 2010 Lake Farm Parks Quilt Show.  She displayed a sampler in a number of different sizes.  So I started one using 12" blocks.  With a 24" Center block.  I think I'm going to use a layout I found in EQ7.

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

I didn't do very well on finishing these did I? 
I did complete a number of other quilts, totes and wallhangings throughout the year though.
You may see some of these on my list for 2011.

Wow! You are certainly making good progress on your UFO's. I really like your Sunshine and Shadows quilt! The colors are really soothing and I'll bet it is really cozy with the flannel!
