UFO Challenge Pictures

Work expands to fill the time available for its completion.

OK, Now that the year is more than half over I finally get around to posting pictures for the UFO Challenge that Judy over at Patchwork times is doing.  I wanted to get a picture of the whole tops but finally gave up on the idea and just did what I could.  I used my design wall for the smaller ones but I can't get a full length  picture because to how the room is set up.  I think I've figured out a way to do it out on the edge of my deck but since it has been in the high 90's and above lately the idea just lost it's appeal.

So here's the pictures of what I still want to get finished this year.  Of the 12 I started with I have one done, but I have made progress on two of the others.

Sunflower Blooming Nine Patch

1. Sunflower Blooming 9 Patch - The top is together, it may need a border or two. 
The picture shows about a fourth of the quilt but you can't see the center.  It is pretty big.

Margaret's Irish Chain

2. Margaret's Irish Chain - Needs a few more blocks and borders.  
My daughter pieced this one when she was in her teens and working at my shop.  
She did a pretty good job, it was her second quilt.

Here's a close up.

Can you tell she loves animals?

Sports Quilt

3. Sports Quilt - Ready for the Longarm

Cobalt Blue Stars and Burgundy Plaid Homespun

Watercolor Log Cabin

4. Floral Log Cabin - Needs borders, this is a close up shot.  
The blocks are 10" square and it is king size.

5. Fall Leaf Flannel 4 Patch - Ready for the Longarm   FINISHED!!! May 2012
You can see it HERE.

Blue Skies Tribble Trouble

6. Blue Skies Tribble Trouble - Ready for the Longarm.  This one is about queen size.  
It was fun to make and I used a variety of sky prints in it.

Hunter's Star

7. Hunter's Star - Needs borders.  This was foundation pieced and was NOT fun to make.
