2012 New FO Challenge - January

Barbara over at Cat Patches found herself UFOless at the beginning of 2012 and decided to create at least 12 more (one per month) so she could enjoy all the UFO challenges in 2013.  Hence the 2012 New FO Challenge.  I wasn't as brave as Barbara, my New FO plan only includes 4 new quilts in 2012. 

The Mystery Quilt published in the Dec/Jan edition of McCall's Quilting Magazine caught my eye and I decided to make that my first new project for 2012.  I had fun picking out fabrics from my stash and starting on the first clue.  


I picked the yellow floral fabric as my theme fabric and pulled the other 3 to go with it.  I've finished the first clue and am about half way finished with clue #2.


So far, no instructions for fabrics A and D.  I'm curious to see how this quilt is going to come together, but I have to wait till March for the next (last) clue!

  5. I don't think I've had no UFOs at the end of a year since I was sixteen years old (my only DD is now nearly 26 so you see that's a lot of years). And yes, that UFO from way back then is still a (knitting) UFO.
