UFO Challenges

I am planning to participate in 2 UFO challenges in 2011 - one with Judy Laquidara and her bloggies, and another with my bee. 

Both challenges run effectively the same way - list the projects you want to get done in a certain timeframe (1 per month with Judy/1 per quarter with the bee) and the hostess of the challenge will pull a number from a hat at the beginning of the time and you'll work on that UFO. At first, I didn't know if I'd have enough to find 16 things to put on my list...then I started writing, then added a couple of Lois' quilts that I really want to finish, and before I knew it, I had more than enough! Here's what I plan to work on: 

For Judy's challenge: 
1 & 2. Stained glass log cabin (the work that remains on this will take me more than one month, so I will work on it twice in the year)

3. Finish quilting and bind Lois' Schnibbles quilt
4. Halloween wall hanging - quilt and bind
5. Convergence Quilt - add borders, quilt and bind

6. Jenna's Butterfly Fling - quilt and bind

7. Lois' Bow Ties - quilt and bind
8. Cupcake table runner - finish piecing, quilt, and bind
9. Christmas table runner - quilt and bind
10. Esterita Austin wall hanging - fuse, finish painting, quilt and bind (my goal on this one is to have it ready for quilting)
11. Cherish Nature wallhanging - quilt and bind
12. Lois' Las Vegas quilts - quilt and bind (I don't have a pic of these - there are two almost the same with pictures from a trip she took with a couple friends).

Can you tell what I have a lot to do? Quilting and binding....it is so easy to piece, piece, piece...this year, I need to get down to business with the quilting and binding! 8 of the 12 projects on this list were started/inherited this year! I hope that I don't replace them with 8 new UFOs by the end of the year! 

For my bee challenge: 
1. Quilt and Bind Five Easy Pieces, our bed quilt
2. Quilt and Bind Curvalishish
3. Finish top, quilt and bind my Judy L. quilt
4. Quilt and finish Market Bags

On this list, the first two projects are older than 1 year, the last two were both started this year. 

If I get all these done, I will more than surpass my quilting goal for next year! I would be glad to finish 1/2 of them...and hope that all of you will keep me going!

great goals! I havent ever had the energy to write down what I hope to do. guess my first one would be to finish the RRCB, I am caught up on cutting but not on sewing. cw

You have some great projects on your list. Good luck getting them done. Sometimes seeing them all listed out is just the right motivation to get things done.

Wow, nice list! I'm in the 2011 UFO challenge along with you, but most of my projects hae a great deal of piece work left to do.
I'm looking forward to seeing your progress this year.
