WIPs (UFOs)


I always enjoy taking stock of what I still have in progress.  Some things are getting regular attention and will be done before I know it, others are on the far back burner but it is fun to see what options I have if I need a break from my regular sewing schedule!  I used to do one quilt at a time start to finish (I used to read one book at a time too) but nowadays I just do lots of stuff (and read lots of books--thanks to Nook and Kindle) at a time!
Still in progress is my Mostly Denyse Schmidt Handsewn Hexies which seems to only get about twenty new hexies a year added to it!  Slow but steady and it will get done one day! 



These are my Colonial Bluework blocks.  I have not worked on them in years!  I need to at least finish enough of them to sash them in blue and turn them into a top.  Now that I am into embroidery I think I will have to get out a block!

The Buttermilk 30's quilt has not been touched since I inherited a friend's UFO.  I do plan on getting to this one when there is a lull.  I don't like to leave anything unfinished!

This is Bonnie Hunter's Wild and Goosey.  It is paper pieced and each block takes about an hour.  For awhile I was getting a block done each week and it was growing, then I took a bit of a break after showing it to Bonnie in February.  I set a goal of one block per weekend and since I do a Wild and Goosey check in every weekend on Quiltville's Open Studio's facebook group I have actually made a few extras too!  I decided this one was done awhile back and set it aside.  Later I decided I may add to it again so I still have it hanging out waiting to grow some more.


I decided to join the "Choose Your Own Blockalong" and make Tula Pink's City Sampler.  My goal was to make two blocks a week but I got tired of it and put it away for awhile.  And over a year later it still has not seen any progress!

In 2015 I made the Rainbow Scrap Challenge Sampler.  Here is Angela's mock up of what it will look like.  I have been keeping up with the main blocks, but am quite behind on the alternate blocks.  I am pretty sure I have decided to continue this one next year where I do all the alternate blocks and piece it as I go.  I really enjoy working on the RSC blocks but have all the time I need to finish them!  I have not touched this one in a long while and I am honestly not sure what I still need to make for alternate blocks. 
Amy from Amy's Passions and I are doing a block exchange in 2015.  I picked Bonnie's "Betty's Choice" and Amy is doing an alternate block in each color as part of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.We mailed half the blocks off to each other and I think this is as far as either of us have made it towards sewing them together.  LOL, I played with mine decided I liked this layout and packed it up for another day.  Still not sewn together but I am going to print this picture and see if I cannot make it happen soon!

Made progress on this one May 2017.


In 2015--I made two of the bitty blocks from Quiltmaker each month too.  I am hoping to make two samplers out of this, but who knows.  They were super fun to make though!  I do not even know where exactly these blocks are or if they made more progress.  I forgot all about them!

I won these leaf blocks at Nimble Thimbles in 2015 or so and I plan to whip up some sort of tablerunner before next fall with them.

This one is all done and ready to be gifted to my mom as of May 2017.

 I have the center hexie done for Bonnie's A Little Bit Hexie mini quilt.  I need to cut the rest and kit it up so I can get it finished too.
Made progress on this one in May too!

 This is the tumbler challenge from 2015--I used Miss Rosie's Lil' Crumbler ruler and tried not to repeat any of the red fabrics.  It is not very big and so this is waiting to either be a small quilt or a portion of a backing of something or to grow.
 I won this Tula Pink Stacks set of blocks at Nimble Thimbles in March of 2015.  I need to make one more block (someone did not finish the one they took, ugh!) and it will be quick finish--unless I add sashing or something else. 


Circa 2016 by Temecula Quilt Company is also in progress needing more rounds.

I took the Barb Janson workshop for making my own Landscape quilt and was really excited about getting out of my own little box to try it out but then summer came and we were out of town to Rocky Point a lot and it has just been sitting waiting for me to return to it!  I do not even think I have a picture of what I do have so far--mostly prep.

The current Quiltville mystery is En Provence for 2016! I am on the final clue all ready to make my blocks but just have not been motivated to tackle it!

I have some Playing with Jacks blocks in a bin and need to make a few more and call it good.  I used modern fabrics and didn't really have enough contrast.

This one is done now!
I also got the Rainbow Scrap Challenge from 2014 done!  Barb quilted it for me, love it!  It will be gifted to my cousin Linc and his soon to be wife this June.


I am dying to start the Quilty Barn Along.  Another Quiltville one on the horizon is the Love Shack wallhanging.  I have been collecting the stuff for that one and plan to start it soon!  I want to make a few hourglass leaders and enders (2016) to make a set of four placemats.  I need to kit that up soon if it is going to happen before the next leader/ender is announced in July.  I also want to make Bonnie's Star Chain in packer colors.  I just figured out how many of each part I will need in each color so that is going to be started before long. 

I joined this challenge and have made a plan of attack for getting these WIPs (ok UFOs) down!
