My UFO Goals for 2011

I have so many UFO's. I see so many pretty quilts and I will start a project or two before the previous quilts are done. I signed up for Judy Laquidara's UFO challenge. The plan is to complete 12 projects in 2011. These are my list of UFO's I would like to finish in 2011.

1. Square in a Square quilt.
2.  Log Cabin Quilt.
3. Rail Fence Quilt.
4. My youngest daughter's T-shirt Quilt.
5. My oldest daughter's T-shirt Quilt. All the blocks are prepared for the quilt and ready to be sewed together.
Now this is my son's pile of t-shirts for a quilt. I am not counting this as a UFO yet.
6. I am using the leftovers from this red Churn Dash Quilt to make a Pinwheel Quilt.
7. How Charming Quilt.
8. Feed Sacks Quilt from Kim's Scrap-Basket Surprises book.
9. Beach Cottage Quilt from Kim's Scrap-Basket Surprises book.
10. My youngest daughter's Happy Hour Quilt.
11. My Apple Core Quilt cut with my Go cutter.
12. This Bar Quilt just needs a binding.
 13. Turning Twenty Quilt needs a binding.
 14. With my ever growing scrap basket, I'm always working on a string quilt.
15. Chinese Coin Quilt.
 I should probably stop counting now... The growing numbers are making me nervous! I really want to start working on these next three Go cutter projects. The first is an Apple Core Quilt.
 This will be my blue and yellow Drunkard's Path Quilt.
 Here is another one which will have raw appliqued edges.
 This is my list for UFO goals for 2011. Wish me luck because I desperately need it to finish this many projects! And like I said I'll probably start some new ones too.
Happy Quilting until next year.

Oh Millie, They are all so beautiful!! It will be hard to pick what to finish first. Have fun and I will enjoy following you on the journey! Happy New Year!

I'm glad you decided to show the quilts you want to finish in 2011. I've never seen some of these designs before, and it is exciting to learn about some of them. They are all fantastic. Smart of you to include the "need a binding" as they should make it to the finish pile in a pinch.

Linda said...

Each one of your UFOs are beautiful! They are all going to be gorgeous! It's great that you have a plan. O wish you a very Happy New Year!

Millie, that's good to make yourself accountable (to you, if to no one else!). Those are all interesting and beautiful looking projects. That's the problem, isn't it? There's just so much out there to do and to see and then we want to make it, too! LOL!

Mama Pea said...

Good luck to you! I hope you make good progress! I need to make a good dent in my 50+ UFOs this year, too!

Zlaty said...

Good luck with your UFO's Millie! Now you have a plan to attack them! You can do it!

Happy New Year!

Jackie said...

What a great group of WIPs! Several of them look like they're really close to being completed. Knock the easy ones out first, it will really be nice to mark some of them off the list as completed! Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

You can do it Millie, I know you can! I have a list too but I haven't posted it because I think it would scare me. :) blessings, marlene

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

Just one at a time Millie! Happy New Year! I know you can do it!

Anne Lise said...

Oh, this are all gorgeous quilts. But I see that you will have lots of work ahead. Well, have fun, I will follow your progress. And then I wish you a happy new year.

Madame Samm said...

Are you kidding me Millie, surely these are your customers quilts right?lol...All of these are your UFO's ok, I may have to stop coming really, what if you inspire me to do the same...egads...I have 2 going right now and that is only because my over the river is almost done...Stop this right now lol

Tamera said...

You can do it. I finished quite a few in 2010.

Karen said...

What a fun year you are going to have. Don't be too hard on yourself, work on the ones that really speak to you! Happy New Year.

Gra said...

Those are all beautiful projects!! I would "attack" right away the ones that are pretty much already finished, just to feel that I acomplished somthing and to get the number of UFOs down...and then have fun deciding which one you will do can write the names on small pieces of paper and randomly pick one, or make a poll in your blog...choose no more than 3 quilts and let people choose for you. Well I should stop writing and go back to my own UFOs!!!!!!
Happy New Year!!

Micki said...

I love all of your projects! Good luck with the UFOS!
Happy New Year!

Ariane said...

Oh I'm so glad you decided to join this challenge with all of us. It helps to right them down for everyone to see. I hope in my case that it will give me the push I need to finish mine. You have some wonderful projects going! They will be wonderful when they are all done!!! Happy New Year!!! Hugs Ariane

I'm starting with the easiest to finish first. Call it the "Get out of UFO debt diet". Your UFO's are breautiful BTW. Get those quiltd bound. thry're soooo close to done.

SewCalGal said...

Beautiful projects Millie. And I'm so happy that we'll be working on our UFOs together, in Judy's 2011 challenge. It will be fun to see these projects get completed and celebrate finishes with you.

Your going to be one busy quilter. Have fun!!

Teresa Felgueiras said...

Those UFOs are absolutely gorgeous. I'm glad you've decided to finish them.
Happy New Year!

Michelle said...

Happy New Year Millie. 12 UFO's I know I have more and I'm sure you do too, but that's probably a nice realistic goal to be able to complete. So one i not too overwhelmed. Looks like some nice projects, will keep an eye out for finishes, expecting one a month?

Tam said...

A plan is always a good start.
Good Luck Millie and I look forward to seeing your beautiful finishes

Mama Pea said...


Thanks to your nudging, I took photos and posted them on my blog today!


Deborah in Atlanta said...

Wow, you have got some gorgeous quilts pictured. Divide them into categories like you have and you'll whip them up in no time. Get the binding on the one that needs it, and you'll have one down and out of the bunch. Then, take the quilt tops you've completed and get your backing and batting and get those sandwiched and basted. When you get tired of sewing your blocks together, you can pull out a sandwich and quilt. Then when you get tired of quilting, go back to the stitching. That way you don't get bored doing the same thing over and over. dmj53(at)hotmail(dot)com

Quilter Kathy said...

Wowwee...that's a great list of projects much fun to be had in 2011!

Miki Willa said...

These are all going to be wonderful. My 2011 list is all quilts I have not done anything on yet. Your list is very inspirational.

Thearica said...

I have a list of UFO's a mile long! And my daughter's t-shirt quilt is on my list! I have had her shirts for 3 years so it is about time that I get er' done!'

She turns 30 this year so I actually am thinking of doing it as a surprise birthday gift! :)
