The First UFO of 2013

Happy New Year!

Here is my "bin of UFOs."  The 13quilt tops that I hope to complete during 2013.

I've been asked what defines a "finish."  To me, "finished" has always been "ready to go to the long-armer."  Now that I am doing my own machine quilting, I guess I'll have to re-think that!  Each quilter has to decide for herself what is "finished."  Remember, there are no quilt police -- this is supposed to be fun!  "Finished" can be pieced, quilted, bound, or "ready to hand off!"

Friend Emily graciously pulled the number for January.  And it is:


Here is my UFO #5:

Dot Dot Dash from Julie Herman's new book, "Skip the Borders."

I cut the pieces for this quilt from a wonderful Batik roll, but I didn't save the label so I don't know what collection it is.  It has gorgeous purple, chartreuse and lemon-colored batiks, it will be easy to "make" myself work on this quilt.

As soon as I get the sample for the February Jelly Roll Party quilted and bound!
