Deana: 2015 UFO Challenge

I am participating in the 2015 UFO Challenge.  I also have a goal to quilt one project a month and finish one UFO top a month.  I am putting my "tops" on the list for the UFO Challenge in hopes of getting them ready to quilt but not expecting to get them finished and quilted in the same month.

The idea is to make a list of 12 UFOs and number them.  The first of each month a number will be drawn at random and that is the UFO you work on for that month.  Because I am just beginning and they have already selected #4, I made my Grand Illusion #4 because I am already working on it.

Some of these projects are too intense to complete in one month such as Dear Jane and the Quilted Barn, but I will report my progress.

Here is my list:

#2 Christmas Log Cabin

#1 Brielle's Braid

Done in October!

#3 (March) Quilter's Garden


#4 Grand Illusion  (January)

FINISHED the top Jan 19, 2015

#5 Dear Jane Blocks
This one is on the list twice because it will take two full months to make very much progress.

#6 Barn Swap

Done - (October)  I combined this quilt with my barn swap blocks which finishes two UFOs on my list.

#7 Shimmer Braid  (February)

FINISHED in February

Quilted in July

and Storm at Sea

FINISHED in February

#8 Snowman Embroidery  (April)


#9 Dear Jane border blocks
This one is on the list twice because it will take two full months to make very much progress.

#10 Jo's Americana

These quilt blocks were combined with the barn swap blocks above into one quilt.  I completed it in October - quilted too!

#11 Sliced Quilt Challenge - learn more about this project here.

#12 Flowering Snowball (May)


I am linking up with Needle and Thread Thursday.


  1. Smart thinking putting Dear Jane in twice!

  2. You have some great projects there. I am looking at doing this too

  3. Wow! Your projects are wonderful! I really should be doing this, too. Are the barn blocks your design? They are great! Good luck with #4!!

  4. You have some awesome projects in the works! I'm hoping to get a UFO finished each month, but I don't dare put them in writing--lol!
