2012 UFO Challenge - June Progress

I wasn't going to post anything for the UFO challenge because I haven't finished anything, but then I realized there had not been a UFO challenge post on my progress since the end of January.  Now that we are at the halfway mark for 2012, an update is probaby a good idea. 

Even though I've not finished any of my UFOs as yet, progress has been made on 3 of the 4 UFO's  included in this year's challenge. (UFO list is here)  Of those 3 quilts, the Purple and Yellow Quilt just needs binding.  That's scheduled for next weekend.  Scrappy Stars hasn't been touched since January.  There has been some progress on the RWB Quilt.  When I pulled that project out of the box back in May, there was only 1 block completed. 


Another 4 blocks have been completed since then.


These stars are time consuming, so they go pretty slowly.  The layout I have in mind will need another 8 star blocks, so there is still quite a bit to do.  But progress has been made, which is what I wanted.  Finishes would be nice, but 2 of the 4 UFOs on the list started with almost nothing.  I doubt I finish this project by the end of July, but even if I don't, any additional work makes it that much closer to being a finished quilt.

  1. I always have to tell myself that any forward progress is still progress. This star quilt is going to be stunning.

  4. I can see why those blocks take a long time. To misquote Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman, "fiddly little suckers!"

  5. The stars are looking wonderful. Definitely intricate work required there. Can't wait to see your finished yellow and purple quilt. Progress is always good!
