Time to make a new List

Finally, its time to write my new List of Six UFOs, so I can get back to rolling the dice each week.  Whichever number comes up, that is the UFO I will be working on that particular week.  Looking through my “stuff”, I’m always amazed just how many things I’d previously started and not finished.  I’ve tried to get a bit of variety in my new list, bigger projects and some quicker ones.  So……the new list for 2019 is:

1:  New Zealand Botanical Quilt.  I’m so pleased I just completed stitching the final block, and will now get to assemble it sometime soon.

2:  Sampler Quilt.  This is quite an old UFO which dates back to an Internet Birthday Block Swap I took part in.

3:  Machine quilt two cot quilts.  These were made from my seemingly endless supply of nine patch blocks, (I’ve found plenty more in one of my crates) and assembled a while ago using the leader and ender method.

4:  Selvedge Bag.  I rediscovered this project recently, selvedge blocks were tucked away in an old quilt magazine. 

5:  Christmas Mystery Quilt.  This was started late last year and then I ran out of steam, so it didn’t get finished in time for Christmas. 

6:  Memory Quilt.  When we travelled to England way back in 2009 I took along a good supply of HST and a fabric pen to get them signed as we travelled around.

Six new projects on my list

I can’t possibly wait till Monday to start so I rolled the dice today.  And the project chosen in number three, the two nine patch cot quilts, waiting to be machine quilted.  Goody, it will be great to get on with these little quilts, I’ll be doing simple walking foot quilting.

Your new project bags look wonderful filled with your UFOs. I'm sure you'll empty the bags without any trouble. Enjoy your UFO stitching

There certainly is a nice variety in your new list. It will be nice if you can even get a finish early on. Enjoy.

Looks like you have a lot of fun ahead of you.

That is a good idea to work on something different each week with the toss of a dice. Any method to get ufo's done is always a good thing and you have a nice variety to keep you interested.

You've certainly got plenty to keep you going. It will be interesting to see you working on all your projects and hopefully celebrating some finishes with you.
