UFO Challenge - March

It's UFO link-up time over at Field Trips in Fibre. The stack is getting smaller, although it's hard to tell sometimes.  My UFO closet still has a lot in it, and I know there are a few missing which are in stacks in various locations around my house.

As of beginning of February, I had
10 in progress
7 planned but not started
30 to be quilted
3 to be bound

This month, I remembered a missing project, so added one to the in-progress list, and noticed a completed one that I forgot to remove from the "to be quilted" list.  A number of finishes this month and several quilts that moved up the progress chain leaves me with these stats now:

10 in progress
7 planned but not started
20 to be quilted
7 to be bound
7 completed this past month (year to date - 11 finishes)

That takes me down to 37 from 43 quilts in some stage of progress, so I am definitely calling that a good month. And the only new start for the month was a shop sample which is done, so skipped right over the whole UFO process :)

I don't know how many UFOs I'll get done this month, since Giraffe Abstractions needs to be my focus. But I'll probably need a break from that and send a couple through the longarm, anyway.  In the meantime, I'm paper piecing up a storm - look I have a tail!

And once again, the details for anyone interested (feel free to stop reading here :) )
