January UFO report

Judy Liquidara pulled the number 5, so everyone in the challenge was to work on their own UFO #5.

Mine is/was BATIK CHARMS.


I finished the top, and made the backing, and sent them off to my LA quilter.  So it is an finished as possible until it returns for binding.

While making the blocks for Batik Charms, I used up the scraps in a doll quilt:

This quilt is completely finished; quilted on my DSM and bound.



Now, I have so many UFOs that I made a second list,with the intention that I would work on a second UFO each month after the first one was done.

So in January I went on to my second #5, "Brown and Red Rectangles".

The blocks were already made, so I sewed them together and added two borders.  I made a backing.  This is now ready to go to my LA quilter the next time we get together.



Now Judy has drawn the number for February -- #1.

This means that my first UFO project for February is a double Four-Patch I was once making for the day bed in the den.  The brown and tan plaid blocks are mostly sewn together, but it is not quite large enough.  Needs borders?


OK.  I'll take this along to the retreat tomorrow with some additional brown plaids.

Morning Sara, just popping in to see what those UFOs look like! And I see that you weren't kidding about UFOs, LOL.
Love the batik finish, and your small one is just as sweet!
I'm in awe of your red and brown bricks, the one red fabric makes it just glow! Probably not many of us that love the re/brown combo, but I am a HUGE fan of those two colors together!
Have fun on your retreat, hugs, Finn

What beautiful finishes - isn't this challenge fun? OTL is what it is about for me and I love it when we reduce the pile of UFO's. Judy C loves Batiks
