End of February Update on PHD UFO List

We have joined Quilting Gail in a quest to complete our PHD (projects half done) certificate.  Here is the list of our 12 UFOs that we shared back in December with links showing the unfinished project or photos.  This should work out to one finish per month, in theory anyway!

UFOs – 2018 Wrap Ups

  1. Dr Seuss commission quiltcomplete in January 2018
  2. Quilt and bind the nine-patch Evening Star
  3. The second Animal Panel baby quilt needs to be quilted/bound – February hopefully
  4. Quilt and bind Garden Gate
  5. Quilt and bind Nobody’s Perfect for Valentine’s Day blog hopcomplete in February 2018
  6. Finish Grandma’s Kitchen QAL quilt (only 20 blocks) – add sashing/borders, quilt and bind – 5 blocks made into a table runner – 15 blocks to go
  7. Determine the layout and finish the I Wish You A Merry QAL quilt (only 9 blocks) – add sashing or additional blocks, quilt and bind
  8. The ABC quilt will be completed.  This includes piecing, sashing, quilting and binding (picture on the left)complete in February 2018
  9. Finish up the jigsaw puzzle baby quilt.  It has lots of appliqué pieces to be completed. A border will then be added followed by quilting and a binding.  Appliqué pieces through row three complete.
  10. Finish the Delectable Dogsleds table runner that we purchased at a quilt shop in Juneau, Alaska a few (2011?) years ago.  I think there might be a blue version of this fabric somewhere in our sewing fabric stash . . .DogsledTableRunner
  11. Try to figure out what we are going to do with these four four-squares of Fall Leaves. We bought the fabric in Las Vegas so long ago that we don’t even remember when.  We still like the fabric anyway!FallLeaves
  12. These panels were being hand quilted  for a jacket.  The fabric is lined with flannel, and the backing is a peach solid cotton.  My tastes have changed since then, so I need to do something else with these.  I don’t have a clue as to what though.HandQuiltedPieces

UFO Finish Updates:  3 of 12

UFO #1 – Here are our two photos of Dr Suess.  The first one on the left was in process in November, and the one on the right is as it was finished for Keri:

UFO #5 – Nobody’s Perfect quilt is all finished.  Here is a picture of it after it was washed.

UFO #8 – The ABC wall hanging #2 is complete and OFF the design wall!  Woot woot.  All quilted and bound with hangers.  I will share a complete post on Friday.


Items 6 and 9 are on the radar and being worked on during March.  I doubt they will be complete though.  How are you doing on your UFO list?

  1. Woohoo!! You were certainly a very busy beaver! Congratulations on all the progress! Time to add some new items to your list! 😊

  2. Susan says:

    You sure are busy Roseanne! They are all looking fantastic!

  3. You’ve been busy, Roseanne! I can just picture that PHD certificate on your wall. Now those 4 maple leaf blocks look like a fall table centrepiece or a big bag for toting quilts to me, and the hand quilted jacket bits, a lap quilt, maybe for a senior’s home. I’d add a quilt as you go border to make it bigger and move it out. Now i must return to my own problems…

    • Roseanne says:

      Great suggestions! I never in a million years would have thought of a tote . . . but that would be fabulous. And the lap quilts are a great idea, too. Thank you! I hope you’re not returning to too many problems. ~smile~ Roseanne

  4. Kathryn says:

    It’s great to see things being crossed off the list and so satisfying. So far this year I have not started anything new and have been concentrating on one thing at a time!

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Kathryn,
      That is great. I have not been able to do that, but hopefully all of these will get finished along with all the newbies. ~smile~ Roseanne

  5. chrisknits says:

    Progress is being made! Would the garment panels work as baby quilts?

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Chris,
      Maybe so . . . not as cute as I would normally do but maybe they could have something added to them to make them cuter. Like a border or something. I haven’t looked at them yet – I’m saving (avoiding) them. ~smile~ Roseanne

  6. Vicki in MN says:

    Lots of projects underway and you will soon have them all done. Depending on how large a piece that you were going to use for a jacket-perhaps just bind it and call it done? Perhaps a donation quilt if you don’t like it anymore.

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Vicki,
      That is a quick and easy idea – and it would be out of my hair. I think I have to finish hand quilting the one piece, but that shouldn’t be too hard or too time consuming. ~smile~ Roseanne
