In this corner we have the following UFOs to tackle:
1. Crazy Quilt Jewelry Roll and Pouch: Finish embellishment/quilting and bind.
I started a jewelry roll and pouch for a friend of mine back in 2007. The top is finished and it's all layered but I got stumped because I wanted to embellish it and couldn't get focused about what I wanted to do. I thought inspiration would have hit over time but instead I got waylaid by other projects. I've known my friend long enough that she hasn't hassled me about it until this year. When she asked about it, I agreed with her that it's time to get this one underwraps.
As a further incentive, Thearica of the Pigtails and Quilts blog wrote on the HGTV Quilts and Needlework Forum a post about hosting an online Crazy Quilt competition in May. I realized that once again this is a "kill two birds with one stone" opportunity: to finish an old UFO and participate in a challenge. Unfortunately, the piece you submit has to not have been seen before so I won't be able to show it until I have it ready to enter in the competition.
2. Heart & Home Wool BOM: Finish blocks and top, quilt and bind.
3. Valor: To be Quilted.
This was originally planned to be hung outside for the July 4th holiday in 2011 but I didn't get it finished for either that year or 2012. So hopefully third year's the charm!
4. Civil War Chronicles (BOM): To be Quilted.
This is the next up in my Civil War quilt series. It's a bigun' and I'll have to give some thought to the quilting of it given my experiences with the Dresdens project (for more on that see this post).
5. Brrr catch-up: Finish Quilting, Bind.
It should be noted that with each of these projects, I also have a new side project or two that I'd also like to try to work on along with the UFO. Needles to say, expectations are that this will be a very busy quarter!!
I'll be linking this list to the Finish-A-Long linky when it's up on April 8th.
