2015 UFO Challenge revisited...

I am participating in the 2015 UFO Challenge.  It began in January and I wanted to take an inventory of what I have accomplished.  For this purpose I am posting it today.  

I had a goal to quilt one project a month and finish one UFO top a month.  I put 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 was to make a list of 12 UFOs and number them.  The first of each month a number was drawn at random and that is the UFO you work on for that month.  

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

Here is my list:

#2 Christmas Log Cabin
This number was drawn in August and I have not touched it.

#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 Buggy Barn Star 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.

I have not touched Dear Jane this year.

#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.

I have not touched the sliced quilt this year.

#12 Flowering Snowball (May)


I am linking up with Show Off Saturday.


  1. Amazing! I love that all your quilt designs are so diverse. I could use some of your speed and creativity.

  2. I have not touched my Dear Jane this year either. That is about to change!

  3. So you should show off. You have done some amazing work. I think I need to follow that process next year. I need to finish some of my projects. Great effort...
