2019 UFO Challenge -- Six Rainbow Scrappy Goals!

It's that time of year that I pick twelve projects that I would like to finish in 2019.  Each project gets a number from 1 to 12.  I link up with our hostess, Judy, at Patchwork Times.  Each month she posts the "magic number".  We work on that quilt and hopefully finish it.  There are no quilt police checking up with us.  It's just a group of quilters with UFO's trying for a finish.  :)  Got some UFO's?  Come join the fun.

Since some of these goals to finish are from my RSC projects, I'm linking them up with Angela at SoScrappy for the RSC18.

Here are my TWELVE for 2019:

1.  Fortune Teller (Started in 2014 for the RSC14.)

2.  Kite Girl (Also started in 2014 for the RSC14.)

3.  Go Four It scrappy 4-patch quilt.  This is also another RSC project in which I made many, many four patches in the color of the month.

4.  Little Letters QA Quilt (A RSC14 project).  I need to make a back for this quilt and quilt and bind it.  I just can't decide if I want to really work on the quilting on it, or just do an all-over quilting design so that it is finished.  I worked so hard to make the letter blocks to perfection.  I just don't know if I can slap a generic quilting design on it and finish it yet...  My last update was 11/3/14.

5.   Bonnie Hunter's Garden Party.  This quilt was another RSC project.  I started it 3.18.17.


6.  Soul Searching -- A dear friend, Julianne, and I decided to make Soul Searching blocks into a top and then swap tops.  This was an RSC top secret project that we did not post about.  The project has run on too long.  Julianne doesn't quilt as much as she used to.  Life happened to both of us.  I need to find the rest of these blocks and finish about two more.  I will then make a scrappy back, quilt, and bind it.  Depending on the time of year that this quilt is finished, it could easily be a charity quilt for my son's baseball league, my church, or H2H.  We'll see when #12 is drawn.  (Sorry, Julianne...  this projects has just sat idle for far too long...)  I think we started these in 2015???

I'm linking up with Angela at SoScrappy for the RSC18 today, here.


Only half of my quilts are RSC quilts.  Here's the rest:

7.  Pat Sloan's, I Love to Make Quilts Sampler Solstice Challenge (Red & White finished top 2017).  This quilt needs a back made and to be quilted and bound.

8.  Catchin' Some Rays is a lap-sized quilt that was one of my Slow Sunday Stitching projects that I carried with me in my Sew-to-go bag.  The hand stitched parts of the blocks are done.  The rest of the blocks and sashing and border needs to be completed.  A back needs to be made.  It needs to be quilted and bound.

9.   I won this during the orphan adoption from Cathy who blogs at Cathy's CRAZY BY DESIGN.  It's the Dot Dot Dash Bag.   All the hard parts are already completed by Cathy.  The fabrics are gorgeous!  The bag was designed by Sara Lawson (of Sew Sweetness).   It's too cute to not finish!  

10.  Embroidery Bear with balloons and hearts crib quilt (Started July, 2017 for truck to-go bag.)  This was one of my projects started in 2017 for Slow Sunday Stitching.  All of the embroidery is complete.  I need to figure out what to use as a backing, quilt, and bind it.

11.  Sonja's Windows.  I made all these blocks 1.1.15.  There's a good chance that this will be my H2H (Hands to Help) quilt for this year.  It's a great charity.  Hopefully #11 will be picked early in the year so that I can promise it to H2H.

12.  Amanda Murphy Designs (ugly fabric quilt).  This quilt has been on my WIP list for far too long.  It's not ugly at all (it is made of fabrics that I got in a swap that someone else didn't like.)  That was way back in 2012!  It needs to be made wider and then a back made and quilted and bound.

I'm linking up with the 2019 UFO Challenge at Patchwork Times.

I'm also linking up with Angela at SoScrappy for the RSC18 today, here.


Happy December!!!

All are so beautiful quilts! Good luck in your progress ;)

Good luck, Kathy. Many seem to be almost complete so should be done in no time. Well, a short time! On my "Little Letters" I quilted the background to each block and left the letters, and the HST blocks, unquilted. I then quilted the sashing separately. It must have had a lot of threads to bury afterwards (I don't remember), but fortunately it's a small quilt!

Oh, good luck! They're all going to be beautiful!
I can see where focusing on just one could really move it forward. (And having someone else making the choice would eliminate the dithering trap that I would find myself in. Which one first? Which one first?)

Hi Kathy! I’m really slow reading blogs this week! I,m so glad that you’ve got that bag you adopted on your finishing list for 2019. I’ll be rooting for #9, LOL. Actually, you’ve got lots of lovely projects going (as always). Have a happy and cozy December!
