17 UFOs in 2017 – The List

Hmm, Meredithe has listed the ‘rules’ for 17 UFOs in 2017 and she says ‘Projects can be anything you’ve already started (UFO = unfinished object), quilts, knitting, crochet, it’s up to you.’  She also notes ‘Don’t worry if you don’t have 17 projects’.  Well, on a quick count (and I’m sure there could possibly be more buried in the sewing room somewhere but can’t really search as it is being used as a bedroom for our 19 year old French guest at the moment) I am ‘lucky’ enough to have 29 UFOs to choose from!!

So……here’s my complete list with the first 17 the ones I intend to work on in 2017 but with the others listed just in case I feel inspired to swap priorities! (Hope that fits into the ‘rules!’)

  1. Ella’s quilt – needs last border attached, quilting and binding
  2. Medallion quilt – half pieced
  3. French Market Medallion quilt – some blocks pieced
  4. Sue Spargo Wool Embroidery – needs embellishing
  5. Don’t Look Now cushion – needs cushion constructed
  6. Lucy Boston quilt – only a few blocks pieced
  7. Kaffe quilt – needs binding finished
  8. Granny Square quilt – blocks to be pieced together
  9. Mini Design Boards
  10. Blue and brown quilt – needs quilting and binding
  11. Circle quilt
  12. Swap quilt – needs binding
  13. Yoyo curtain – for Sewjourn – been in progress for um, many, years!
  14. Green and orange Drunkards Path – needs quilting and binding
  15. Charity quilt – needs binding
  16. Sashiko cushions – one embroidery to complete and 3 cushions to construct
  17. Hexagon quilt  – finish handpiecing hexagon strip, applique to background, quilt and binding                                                                                  _________________________________________
  18. Meredithe’s quilt’ (this is one from a pattern of M’s the name of which escapes me just now) – needs piecing completed
  19. Yoyo quilt
  20. Handpieced diamond hexagon quilt – only one or two blocks completed
  21. Crocheted cushions (for Sewjourn)
  22. Triangle quilt for bunk room at Sewjourn – finish piecing, quilt and bind
  23. Purple and mustard cross quilt – needs quilting and binding
  24. Garden Divas Quiltmania – needs appliquing, quilting and binding
  25. Purple and mustard cross quilt – needs quilting and binding
  26. Amy Butler quilt – needs last border, quilting and binding
  27. Prints Charming quilt a long quilt – finish piecing
  28. Hamish’s quilt – needs quilting and binding
  29. Amy’s quilt – needs quilting and binding

One of the best ‘rules’ of this challenge is that the aim is to substantially progress the projects not to actually finish them…..but of course any finishes are a bonus!  Anyone else keen to join in?  Pop over to Meredithe’s blog to find out the details (and see some of her amazing work at the same time).

Back tomorrow with the first of my UFOs.

    Looking forward to seeing how you get on with your UFOs – a good idea to have a back-up list – I have already changed one of my UFOs, as I realised there was no way I was going to do it!

    You have quite the list! We all do ; will be fun to whittle it down a bit over the year 🙂

    Yay Jan!! I recognise many of these projects and so many of them just need binding – go to it girl!!!! You’ll have them finished before you know it. I’m here cheering you on xx

  5. Elaine Says:

    I had no trouble finding 17 either!! Good Luck with your list, you have lots of interesting sounding projects there 🙂

  6. Angie in SoCal Says:

    I’d start with 7, 12 or 15 just to get a thrill from getting one finished in the three weeks we have for the first one. Good luck and look forward to seeing your progress.
