2017 UFO-WIP Challenges

You can see the Project list here.  Judy draws a number the first of the month for the WIP we'll be working on.  Every third week, I start work on another for the 17 in 2017.  They'll overlap at times.

January is #3
3. Make more blocks of Anna's Garden
Here are the six I have done.  I'm using the freezer paper and starch method and hand appliqueing these. In total Anna's Garden has 25 appliqued blocks and 4 pieced ones.  With how busy my months are, I'll be happy to  add one to these. We'll see.  I'll post my progress below at the end of the month.

Two more done and a third cut out and ready to start prepping.

February was #9
all blocks made by 2/28!!  Here are some of them:

March was #5  Went from this:

April was #1  Went from this:

to this:
now needs to be sandwiched and quilted

May is #11 - Carolina Christmas by Bonnie Hunter
Got to sandwich and quilt.  This is so busy I may just do the grid lines.
Alas, only found the back - not much progress here during May. Will have to fit it into the June slot.                
I also worked on for the 17 UFOs in 2017 challenge:
a year old WIP - made 3 more blocks and got it to top stage. It is now being quilted.

This one from 2009 (?); made 4 blocks and got it also to top stage. Done!.
This one is done and put away for next Christmas!

String blocks finished and made into a quilt top.  Finished in late April.

Have added borders. It's now a top.

8 UFOs worked on so far this year - I'm on track to get 17 done.  Woohoo!
