April UFO Challenge

This is my "retreat bag". I've been keeping a couple of projects in here, and dragging them with me to each retreat I go on, in an effort to make some progress on these.  In there are Northern Reflections, which just needs borders, Kaffe stripes, which has a ton of cutting left to do (and my hand hurts just thinking about it), and at least one piece of Merry Mayhem's mystery I see lying on top.   Next week, when I head out to my retreat, I'll pack this bag up along with my sewing machine, and I'm set for projects for the weekend.  Maybe I'll toss in houses & stars (a paper piecing project) just to round out the package. It helps me avoid starting a new project at the retreat because I can't figure out what to take :)

It's time for this month's UFO roundup, so here goes.

At the beginning of March I had the following projects:
10 in progress
7 planned but not started
20 to be quilted
7 to be bound

I finished 5, started 3 new, and moved a number through the process this past month.  I also realized that I overestimated how many of my disappearing hour-glass quilties actually got quilted. One has been bumped back into the "to be quilted" list, since I found the flimsy today. As of today, I now have:

12 in progress (oops, that's a step backwards)
7 planned but not started
18 to be quilted
5 to be bound

5 completed this past month (year to date - 16 finishes)

I seem to keep making new "UFOs in training", but so far this year the finishes outstrip the starts, so progress is being made in the right direction.
