June NewFO


It's the last day of June, so it's time to link up with Cat Patches and show off any new projects (NewFOs) that were started in June. This  month's project was first on my NewFO list for 2013, but I committed myself to finish 5 other quilts by May, so it got put on the back burner until this month.  

This is Back to Square One, Judy Laquidara's 2013 mystery quilt which is posted over on her Patchwork Times blog.  Judy has been giving one clue a month since January.  So far, I've managed to finish clues 1 through 3 and complete step 1 of clue 4 .  So I'm not too far behind.  I love the rich jewel tones of the blue, green and purple used in this quilt.  Hopefully, I'll get caught up to clue 7 in July.

Back to Square One was the only new project this month.  However, I did finish up three NewFOs from previous months.

Sweet Treats was NewFO #3 in 2012.

The OSU Quilt was NewFO #2 for 2013.  

I finished sewing down the binding on Calico Cats last night, so no picture of the finished quilt yet.  It was NewFO#1 for 2013.  

So if I look at my "progress" with the NewFO challenge it shakes out this way:

January 2012:         4 UFOs to start
December 2012:     Added 8 NewFOs
as of  June 2013:    Added 6 NewFOs
                               Finished 3 2012 NewFOs
                               Finished 2 2013 NewFOs

Quilt list Status       6 UFOs (projects older than 1 year)
                               7 WIPS  (projects less than 1 year old)
                               5 finished NewFOs

The UFO number has only jumped up by 2, so not bad at all.
