January Project for A Lovely Year Of Finishes

After reviewing my quilting project list the other day, I discovered my UFO list had blossomed from a low of 4 in 2012 to what I suspect is an all time high of 16 at the end of 2014.  I can lay the blame for the quadrupled numbers on a bad case of startitis in 2013 aided and abetted by Cat Patches" seductive NewFO challenge.  What quilter can resist a challenge that only requires you start a new project and not have to finish it?  Well if there is one, it definitely wasn't me.  It was a really fun challenge and it helped me start some projects that were on my bucket list.  But with a total of 21 projects on my list, it's really time to start finishing up a few of those UFOs and WIPs.  

Kathy, who blogs at Kathy's Quilts, regularly linked up with a Lovely Year of Finishes sponsored by Melissa of Sew Bittersweet Designs and Shanna of Fiber of All Sorts as one way to motivate herself to finish up projects on her UFO list.  So this year, I'm going to play along in hopes it will help me get to the finish line on a few quilts.  


For January, the plan is to get all the blocks for the 2014 Rainbow Scrap Challenge Sampler set together.

That should be doable this month. There are just two more rows of blocks to square up and then add the sashing.  I've got a good idea what to do for the borders.  So there is no reason why this project can't be a finished flimsy by the end of the month.

  1. This is a gorgeous quilt, and I'm looking forward to seeing it finished. A good choice for your first finish.

  4. Where do you keep your UFOs? I think you have me beat on number but then I have mine hidden away and may have forgotten some. I was planning to join A Year of Lovely Finishes also. I always meant to join Cat Patches every month, but I usually forgot that too.

    Looks like you are well on your way to finishing the rainbow quilt. That should get the snowball rolling.

So far on the 2nd day of the month, I have finished 2 BB quilts, and have one on the long arm, I have 12-3 more that need to be completed (BB quilts) and have started the remake of a quilt that I will make 4x for my DD's , Bonnie Mystery quilt from last yr, and this yr's ,.one other I have had done except for the boders and quilted.... Oh that's a lot of finishes!
