Post 5 for the day - 2017 UFO list

Here is my list from 2016. Out of the 28 items on this list I got 5 done - items 3, 10, 23, 24, & 28 - got three items partially done - item 27, 5 quilts so far, 26, one quilt so far, and 18, one quilt. Item 11 I used some of the flannel for the backing for item 18 the one flannel quilt and item 21 I used the fabric pieces for making some of the 5 quilts in item 27 so that will come off the list altogether. My new list for 2017 follows this list.

1. Amish diamond 42" square I made this many years ago

2. Hand dyed striped quilt 74" x 85" When I was cleaning up on 1/4/2015 I found this quilt and had forgotten that I had not finished quilting all the black stripes.
3. Small quilt 42" w x 41" from the challenge earlier this year that didn't get picked Done Dec. 2016

4. Log Cabin quilt - this is the second large quilt I had pieced. I had started to hand quilt this and it kept getting pushed aside. After two moves and several home remodels, the quilt was filthy and back then I used the batting that was available - polyester. I took out the hand quilting, washed the top and back, and plan to machine quilt this. This is my oldest UFO - 30+ years - and yes, I am going to get 'er done!

5. Improv musical quilt - queen sized - I have started quilting this, but had to put is aside.

6. Log cabin hand dyed fabric - look at the date - 2010! I don't remember the challenge I made this for, but I am way pass the entry date for sure!

7. Black and white star top - queen sized
8. Blue and tan log cabin - this is partially hand quilted and has polyester batting. I am going to remove the hand quilting, replace the batting, and machine quilt.

9. Wedding ring quilt for a friend - needs some major TLC!

10. Tea towel quilt Done!
11. Hockey flannel quilt for my son 81" x 89"

12. Soccer boy 54 1/2 x 73" I may put a border on this one to make it a bit wider.

13. Maple leaf 78" x 102" the blocks were made by the late sister of a neighbor I had in Dover. I put together the top, because the neighbor does not sew.

14. Danks 90" x 99" this is a young fellow I work with. I made this as a housewarming gift. He and his long time girlfriend have been in their house for 3 years! Up date: they have now been in their house for 5 years and are now married! I need to get this done!

15. Red dog 54" x 65"

16. Red lips 30" x 43"

17. Art museum t-shirt piece. All I need to do is finish up the hand quilting with pearl cotton. This has been sitting around for at least 4 years.

18. Leftover flannel - see the dark green strips laying on top? I found those in my big clean up yesterday! I needed some more solid colored flannel so I am glad I found them!

19. Homespun - this is the remaining fabric from making 4 donation tops in 2014. This will be the end of the homespun in my stash.

20. wool quilt - this quilt was put on hold until my brother could get me the measurements he wanted the quilt to be to fit his bunk on the tour bus.

21. DP solid quilt

22. a pair of pj's that I need to alter for my girlfriend. They belonged to her late husband. He passed away 3 years ago Jan. 2. I need to get these done.

24. guest room curtains Done 2/21/16

Holy cow, you've been busy. I have tons of WIPS that I hope to finish this year. It's just that I need to stop STARTING things at the drop of the hat. Good luck with your finishes. Happy new year.
