2012 resolutions

Judy over at Patchwork Times has issued a UFO challenge. The idea is that you nominate twelve UFOs (twelve? you'd better believe I have at least that many!) and agree to complete them by the end of the year. Since completing UFOs needed to be one of my resolutions, I'm happy to join in! I'll start by listing the UFOs on my side bar (they have been there for a while!). Number 1 will be my Reproduction Quilt, number 2 the Stack and Slash, number 3 the 12 Days of Christmas, number 4 the Pinwheel and number 5 Calendar Baskets. Some of these I can hardly remember!
Number 6 is my Sampler Challenge quilt, which is progressing quite nicely. I only have two more clamshell blocks to make and then it will be time to choose a border etc.Number 7 will be this Linus quilt made from four-patches. It needs a bright border to cheer it up a bit.

Number 8 a Mile A Minute waiting for a border. It's been waiting for a recipient before I decide on border colour, if you know what I mean.

Number 9 a Rebecca Collins Lucky Dip quilt which I'll be using as a teaching sample in January. I'm going to demonstrate adding borders and layering up so this will be finished soon anyway.

Number 10 is my Barbara Brackman Civil War quilt. I've layered up the central part (and have bought border fabric). I'm quilting this part first and then will add the border in 'quilt as you go' style. I've never done this before so hope it works!

And here at number 11 are my Orca Bay blocks - well, some of them. It's a great design, but rather dark. I'm glad I've only done half the blocks, so will see how big a quilt I can make with them.

And finally at number 12 are my Crumb-Along blocks. I love these and don't have too many left to make.

My other quilty resolution is to do more improvised blocks. This year I seem to have made lots of named blocks, and I feel it's time for a change! Here's to 2012 - may it be happy, healthy and quilty! Cheers!
