2014 UFO List - YIKES!

Now that we've put 2013 to bed, it's time to start afresh in 2014.  Goals are good, and have I got some grand ones!

To begin with, there's my 2014 UFO List.  Is it shorter than the list from 2013?  Not hardly.  I may have crossed off 8 items, but each and every one has been replaced by something.  No lack of confidence or feelings of intimidation here.  Surely they will all be finished, some day.  Maybe, just maybe, that day will come in 2014.

Here's my list as it now stands:
  1. Rose Window Grad Q for Andrew
  2. Pastel Lone Star w/Sweet Peas for Penelope (needs applique)
  3. Coxcomb for Allison&Jeff (needs trapunto finished)
  4. Log Cabin – BOTV floral fat quarters (basted)
  5. strip quilt – 6” blocks (basted)
  6. strip quilt – 8” blocks (basted)
  7. baby quilt - (basted)
  8. baby quilt – (basted)

  39. Beautiful America
  40. Walnut Quilt – have the fabric, deadline is September

Other quilts to make, but I don't even have the fabric or idea yet:
2014 Calico Mermaid Iris Challenge
2014 Hoffman Challenge

Do you think I have enough to keep me busy this year?  I think, just maybe, I might. 

And this doesn't even count all of the new projects that will spring forth from nothing as the days progress.  Lots to do, goals are good, and there's no time like the present to begin.

First up:  finish a Christmas card (quiltlet) that just needs binding and a signature.  After that, I can begin quilting on UFO #6.  On your mark, get set, GO!!

Kay at Quilted time referred me to your blog. Why is it misery loves company:) My UFO list isn't 40+ long-because I am not that prolific but it is longer than it was last year and I agree-yikes! Love your finishes however-vibrant, alive with energy-beautiful work!
