It's the last day of 2020. The pandemic has made life challenging in so many areas, but the year has been good in that I've been home to sew more. That helped take a small bite out of the UFO list. Playing along with Quilting Gail's PHD in 2020 challenge was also a good motivator. Gail is again hosting a PHD in 2021 Challenge, as my UFO list still has 22 projects on it, I'm definitely playing along again.
Here's my project list for 2021.
Here's what I'm starting with for each projects.
1. Red, White and Blue Stars
|Red, White and Blue Stars, Self Designed|
This is my oldest UFO from 2005. It started as just blocks at the beginning of 2020 and it made it to finished quilt top before the holidays caught up with me. I'm excited to get this one finished. It needs the backing made before it can be prepped and sent out for quilting. I'm hoping this will be finish #1 in 2021.

3. Morewood Mystery
|Morewood Mystery by Cheryl of Meadow Mist Designs|
The other annual mystery that I enjoy is from Cheryl at Meadow Mist Designs. This was one of three new projects I allowed myself in 2020. The last clue doesn't come out till April, so this will probably be a mid year finish.
4. Grassy Creek
|Grassy Greek, the 2020 Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt|
5. Cabins and Fans
|Cabins and Fans, self designed|
This was my 2017 Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilt. I started with the end in mind hoping that would mean I would end the year with a finished quilt. I did get all the blocks done, but didn't get them assembled into a finished quilt. This quilt will be a graduation thank you quilt that needs to be finished before May 2022. I'm hoping to get it finished and off the list by mid year. We'll see how that goes.
6. Scrappy Butterflies
|Scrappy Butterflies Block is available in EQ 7 Block Library|
7. Squared Away Sampler
| Squared Away Sampler|
designed by Mari (The Academic Quilter) and Angela (Soscrappy)
The 2018 Rainbow Scrap Challenge Project
8. Chocolate Marshmallows

9. On Ringo Lake
|On Ringo Lake, Bonnie Hunter 2017 Mystery Quilt|
On Ringo Lake is the 2017 Bonnie Hunter Mystery quilt along. It's been so long since I've looked at this that I'm not sure exactly where I'm at. Making the sashing blocks? If I get this far, I'll have to figure that out.
10. Neutral Gems
|Neutral Gems, from the pattern Gems by Donna Lynn Thomas, |
found in the book Patchwork Palette
12. Celtic Solstice
|Celtic Solstice, the 2013 Bonnie Hunter Mystery|
This was my first attempt at a Bonnie Hunter mystery. I was seriously unprepared for the amount of stitching it required. I really do love how my version was working out, so I'd love to finish this project. The picture pretty much shows where the project stood when it got put into a project box. I'll have to pull out all the instructions and decide how much is needed to finish a throw sized project.
