My (long) list of UFO's

I thought I should make a list of all (most of) my UFO's, since Sølvi did write about her UFO's over at her blog, and challenged us other bloggers to do the same. Not such a bad idea I think :o) Maybe it's easier to make some goals along the way :o)
I have UFO's I started sooo long ago, and many of them really should be finished in a day or or so...
Well, here's my list:


UFO #1
The purse I started when I attended Yoko Saito's class. Only one side almost finished, so some more work needs to be done here :o)


UFO #2
A great scrap quilt I'm making with Bonnie Hunter's pattern. Most of the blocks are pieced, and the rest is already cut.


UFO #3
A baby quilt I started making from my own head after seeing something similar at a photo on facebook. Made by using a precut jellyroll.




UFO #4
Gail Pan's free BOM "A Christmas wish". All blocks are ready for piecing.




UFO #5
Blocks made from a pattern I don't remember... But got enough blocks to make a quilt, and lots of cut pieces to make more blocks...




UFO #6
My 9 Dear Jane blocks pieced into a wallhanging/table runner. Almost finished with the hand quilting.




UFO #7
This is one of the oldest UFO's in my bins. I did start machine quilt a little bit, but I think I'll pick it up and finish it on my longarm machine . 




UFO #8
A table runner almost ready for quilting.




UFO #9
An other table runner, just needs a couple of appliqued pieces, and some cutting.
Pattern by Lynette Anderson.




UFO #10
Pincussion, just needs piecing and the ric rac. 
Pattern by Leanne Beasley.


UFO #11
One of the blocks in a large quilt. 
Have been cutting along when I cut for other quilts, and the two bins with light and dark fabrics are piling up :o)








UFO #12
"Scrappy spools". Scrap quilt I started a while ago, and most of the fabrics are already cut.




UFO #13
A quilt made with my own design. Most of the blocks are finished. Just need to add the sashing or the blocks between. Got to make up my mind ;o)




UFO #14
"Mocha Swirls". A pattern by Kim Brackett. Gail Pan and I did a sew-along on facebook a while ago, and most of the blocks are finished. Just need to piece the last ones, and then join the blocks into a quilt.




UFO #15
A quilt made by a pattern of Carrie Nelson.
Most of the pieces are precut, just needs to be pieced into blocks.
Finished these blocks before this one became an UFO....




UFO # 16
Black and blue double 4patch. 
Needs some more cutting, and making the rest of the blocks.




UFO #17
Easter decorations. Just needs a few stitches, and then turn them into  hearts filled with batting.




UFO #18
A quilt I am making from Kim Brackett's newest book. 




UFO #19
A Schnibble quilt from Carrie Nelson's book. 
Got all the blocks done, and started joining them into rows. Got to join the rows, and add the borders before I can start quilting.




UFO #20
"My Garden BOM". Only a few of the stitcheries are finished. Will enjoy working on this between all the others ;o)




UFO #21
"Kitchen Sink". Another quilt made from Kim Brackett's "ScrapBasket surprises". Need the two borders. Got to go shopping :o)


UFO #22
"Heart of the home backpack". A pattern by Gail pan. Need to make the back and lining.




UFO #23
I did start quilt this one, but I was not satisfied with it. I will undo it, and quilt it on my longarm machine.




UFO #24
My japanese wallhanging. Needs a lot of hand quilting before I can call it a finish :o)




UFO #25
A baby quilt made with reproduction fabrics. Need to make more blocks, and figure out how to join them.


UFO #26
My Irish chain quilt. The top is almost finsihed, but I couldn't find the other photo. Need to make the quilt a bit wider, and then quilt it.


UFO #27
An other Schnibble quilt. Need to add the borders, and then quilt it.




UFO #28
Schnibble quilt that only need to be quilted.




These are not all my UFO's, but I'll try to finish most of these during 2012.
I know I can finish most of them, since some only needs a few hours of work. I will try to at least finish the ones that needs borders and quilting.


Are you going to line up some of your UFO's?


Have a great and creative new week, and happy sewing!
Laila

Et imponerende antall UFO'er du har, og så mange fien prosjekter. Spesielt liket jeg nr 24. Godt for samvittigheten å vite at det er flere enn jeg spm har mange prosjekter på gang. Får se om jeg også får hengt med på denne utfordringen fra Sølvi.

Peg - Happy In Quilting said...

Oh Laila I did have a bit of a chuckle to myself...looks like we both have a few UFO's...

Mary said...

I have 22 on my list but luckily most are finished tops. I plan to get at least 13 done this year and would like to get everything else to the finished top stage ... We'll seen,

You've got some gorgeous quilts and projects in this bunch.

Linda said...

Oboy, jammen har du mange flotte prosjekter på gang. Tungt å ta igjen, men det er bare å bestemme seg, og så blir man sååå fornøyd med seg selv etterpå :-)

Farm Girl said...

Oh Laila - I love this post! Your UFOs are all fantastic and many of them are almost done...... I am so happy to see that I am not the only one who has a long list of them!

Elin said...

Dette er skikkeleg modig gjort! Eg har ikkje så mange ufoar heldigvis, og eg orkar ikkje dra dei fram alle på ein gong. Er imponert over systemet ditt, opplina ferdigkutta remser osb... Mykje fint på gong!!
ps: Kva med Millsen? Er den ferdig? Sjå Sigrunn sin, kjempefin! Og så hadde vi ei vanskeleg stjerne, hugsar du den? Haha..

Dolores said...

I make lists of things that need to be done/completed but I wouldn't post them on the blog. I keep finding more. A lot of yours don't need much work to complete them and I admire your neatness in having things all together for each project and even with all the pieces cut.
I hope most of these, if not all of them, are finished this year.
Good luck.

Cattinka said...

Dear Laila,
and I always thought I have a lot of UFOs and things on my to-do list, your list must be almost never ending.
It must be hard to decide which UFO to work on first.
You had best just get going!

Imponert over at du tar fram (nesten) alle UFOér! Lykke til, og kjenner jeg deg rett starter du vel på noe nytt også :-)

Astrid sin said...

Så utrolig mange, fine prosjekter! Du får ta deg på tak og bestemme deg, for de der er alt for flotte til å ligge nedpakket som UFOer.

Anne-Mette said...

Wauh, sikke en skøn stribe af WISPs eller UFOer du har. Jeg har nøje regnskab med mine - 27 stykker - men fotograferet er de ikke blevet. Måske kunne jeg starte med at tage fotos af dem, så jeg satser på i år?
God arbejdslyst med dine.
Klem
Anne-MEtte

May Britt said...

LOL I am doing a happy dance here right now. I am not the only one having a lot of UFO's or WISPs that I like to call them.

Tatkis said...

And all of them are beautiful (and would be more beautiful when finished!)
Good luck with your UFOs this year!

Hugs,
Tatyana

Så fint at du tok utfordringa mi. Og så nydelig du har lina opp alt sammen - enig med Astrid, her er det alt for mye lekkert til at det bare skal ligge i en skuff og støve ned. Ta fram tre stykker, jobb litt på dem vekselvis, når en er ferdig, henter du fram en til, vips så er du langt nedi bunken.
Jeg har funnet fram fem stk jeg skal konse om nå i januar, men jaggu ble det ikke sydd på to nye aksjonstepper i steden for nå i kveld.

Anne Lise said...

Her har du jammen mye flotte quilter. Og mye godt arbeid. Men med ny maskin, går vel quiltinga som en lek nå. Lykke til med arbeidet og så venter jeg å se stadig nye ferdige, store quilter fra deg,.....men litt nytt innimellom også kanskje??...
Ha en riktig fin helg.

Le rat des fils said...

Je trouvais que j'en avais beaucoup, mais là je suis battue !
Allez bon courage, tu vas y arriver.

Mona said...

Her var det mange flotte UFOer. Har vel noen jge også hvis jeg titter litt ekstra i skuffer og skap. Ønsker deg lykke til med sømmen.

Trish said...

Could you please tell the name of your UFO #8 and who designed it? It's the fall cat. Thanks for any help you can give me
