Week 8: Finish Those UFQs 2021

It’s Week 8 of the finish those UFQs 2021 challenge! Have you made progress on your list?

You can download the FREE Quilt Project tracker here:

LAST WEEK

Last week I was able to finish quilting and binding my Huge Stepping Stone quilt! It ended up being 85 x 85 inches. I tried getting a good photo outside…but I am short, this is me standing on a step stool. Snow was my photographer. This one is going to be perfect for snuggling on the couch.

The last 7 week’s I’d been focusing on older projected and I only have 1 quilt left on my UFQs list, so I decided I could take a tiny break from the WIPs and start a new quilt pattern! I’m hoping to share this design with you all soon!

NEXT WEEKS GOALS

My goal this week is to finish my top for my NEW Pattern!

I’m also hoping to work on my last quilt on my UFQs list! I stopped working on this Colorful Tiles quilt once it became a top in March of 2017. I needs the backing made, basting, quilting and binding done.

Week 6: Finish Those UFQs 2021

It’s week 6 of the Finish Those UFQs challenge! How’s your listing going? I hope you are making some progress. I’m really surprised with how much I’ve already finished!

You can download the FREE Quilt Project tracker here:

LAST WEEK

My goal was to finish quilting and bind my Starlight Mountains quilt! I’m happy to say, this quilt is all finished! I started this quilt during the quilt along in September of 2020. This is a FREE quilt pattern, you can find it HERE!

I quilted this one from top to bottom in a organic straight line 2 inches apart. I used a Warm and White cotton batting, since the quilt has so much white in it.

I found a super cute cotton dot sheet set at Target. It goes perfectly with the top. Then I bound it in a tiny black with with dot fabric. I love how this one turned out!

THIS WEEKS GOALS

I only have 2 quilts left on my list! Woohoo!! I plan on working on my large sized Stepping Stone quilt. I made 4 of the baby size quilts. I plan on sewing them together with strips of fabric. I had started working on this quilt in December of 2016. This is going to be a family snuggle quilt for our couch. It has cloud fabric for my son Cloud and snowflake fabric for my daughter Snow.

Then I am hoping to also baste this quilt and start quilting it.

Week 5: Finish Those UFQs 2021

Welcome to Week 5 of the Finish Those UFQs 2021! I hope you are getting things checked off your list! Sometimes it’s hard to finish older project, when new projects are so much fun. I am really wanting to cut into some new fabric for a new design I have been drawing. But I really want to get another quilt checked off my list first.

You can download the FREE Quilt Project tracker here:

LAST WEEK

I had the goal to was to finish the binding on my Joyful Meadows Quilt, which I did! Yay!

My second goal was to baste and quilt my Starlight Mountains Quilt. I basted it and have gotten 2/3rds of the quilting done.

We spent most of the weekend painting doors, trim, walls and the ceiling in our hallway. So I didn’t have any time to sew. But I’m happy with the progress I made! I marked out the rest of my lines with my hera marker this morning!

THIS WEEKS GOAL

I am hoping to finish the quilting on the above Starlight Mountains Quilt, attach the binding and maybe finish sewing the binding on.

LAST WEEK

Last week, my goal was to make the backing, baste and quilt my baby size Joyful Meadows quilt. Yay! I was able to check all of those boxes off! I quilted this one by echoing the design. I just lined my walking foot up against the seams and went around and around!

I am almost done binding this one. I only have half of one side left!

Week 2: Finish Those UFQs 2021

It’s been 1 week since we started the Finish Those UFQs 2021 challenge! Did you download the FREE Quilt Project tracker? Did you write a list of all the quilts you want to finish? Did you make any progress on your list?

You can download the tracker here if you haven’t yet:

LAST WEEK

My goal last week was to finish hand sewing the binding on my KaBam Quilt. I had started making this quilt in March 2020. Once the top was finished, I got sidetracked with new quilt projects. Then I was trying to finish it during the 2020 Finish Those UFQs challenge….but I got side tracked when the Joyful Meadows quilt along got started and never finished sewing the binding on. I’m happy to say I finally finished this one! Yay!!

THIS WEEKS GOAL

My goal is to baste and quilt my baby size Plaid’N Perky Quilt. I think this one would look good with straight line, top to bottom quilting. This is how I quilted my throw size. This will go pretty quick, so maybe I’ll be able to start working on the binding also.

Finish Those UFQs 2020 -Week 3

Yay! It’s WEEK 3 of the Finish those UFQs! Did you make any progress last week?

Last week I was able to baste and start quilting on my Joyful Meadows Quilt! I love using spray baste because it keeps all the layers stuck together. I used a mixture of Sulky Temporary spray and Spray and Bond Basting Adhesive, because that’s what I had on hand.

I did a quick and easy outline the design type of quilting. I lined my walking foot up with the edge of my seam and followed it. I have completed the center and just need to work on the outer blocks!

I also worked on finishing up some pot holders, which aren’t on my list, but they are in my pile of to finish.

THIS WEEKS GOALS: This week I want to finish quilting this and finish the binding! I need to order paper patterns on Nov. 23rd, so I better get busy!

HOW TO PARTICIPATE:

You can choose to work 10 minutes a day, 1 hour a week, 5 hours a week. It’s up to you!!

Finish Those UFQs!!

Most quilters love cutting into new projects, so they end up with a big pile of UFQ’s! Most people refer to them as UFO (Unfinished Objects), but I’m trying to focus on my UFQ’s, Unfinished Quilts!  I have a bigger pile than I would like. Some people have 2 unfinished quilts and some people have 50 unfinished quilts!

So, I’ve decided this November and December I’m going to try to make my pile smaller! I’ve created a PDF where you can list 15 of your Unfinished Quilts, check off which stages you have completed. If you have more than 15 UFQ’s, print off as many sheets as you need.

DOWNLOAD The FREE Project tracker:Finish Those UFOs

I’m hoping this will keep me more organized and help me visualize what I can finish before the end of this year. It would be awesome to start 2020 with no UFQ’s, but I don’t think that is physically possible. I have 6 unfinished quilts and 2 New ones I know I work on before the end of the year. So I’m hoping to finish at least 3 of the UFQ’s and work on my 2 new ones!

To accomplish my goal, I plan to spend at least 1 hour each week on my UFQ’s. This way I can still work on new projects, but I’m still chipping away at those unfinished beauties!

You can choose to work 10 minutes a day, 1 hour a week, 5 hours a week. It’s up to you!!

JOIN ME!! From November 1st to December 31st

  • Printed out the PDF
  • Write your time goal
  • Getting working on those UFQ’s!

Each Friday I will put a post in my Quilt Along Group where you can post a photo or let me know what you worked on the previous week and what you hope to work on the following week!

JOIN THE HAPPY CLOUD CREATIONS QUILT ALONG GROUP

I’m hoping we can motivate each other to get some of our UFQ’s finished so they can be snuggled and loved!
