UFO Update

February's UFO was my son's quilt.  I finished this top back in Feb 2010, so it's been waiting a long time.  Too bad I didn't get it done - it could have been completed on it's own anniversary :)  If only I'd known that before.

The top is still waiting - all folded up patiently. This month just blew by, with business trips and the quilting retreat in Texas, so the UFO never got pulled out.  I think I may swap it for the March UFO (#8) - mostly because I really don't want to face that one :)

However, I did start quilting on my January colour challenge quilt - so maybe it will avoid becoming a UFO. That's my goal for the next couple of days.  Then, 2 other quilts which are already basted.  After that, I can figure out what's next on the list - new quilts, old quilts, UFOs - there are plenty to choose from.

Check out the posts from lots of quilters who DID meet their Feb UFO goals, over at Patchwork Times.

  4. Don't give up on this wonderful quilt. The fabrics are great together. You do sound a bit stitch at a time! What's so bad about #8, it's a nice number. Sandi
