Get It Done UFO Challenge January Number Is...

 Number 5!

It's time to get started on those UFO Lists ~ The number to work on for the month of January is #5.  
You can read about the details of our Get It Done UFO Challenge at This Blog Post, and you can jump in any time.  It's all about having fun, and getting some of those quilts finished :) 

In the last post I showed my personal 2016 UFO list (12 of my UFO's at least), and my #5 is to finish my Pat Sloan "Farmer's Market" quilt...So Full Disclosure: Here is the state my "Farmer's Market" is in at the moment.  As you can see I have several blocks to finish adding the applique to, and then doing all the blanket stitching, adding any outer borders I decide to add, then quilting and binding.  Will I get it finished this month?  ...I'm not sure, with all I'm working on with customer quilts and my website in flux right now (Don't get me started...I could write a book)...But I do know I'll be getting some work done on it, and I'll let you know how things progress by the end of the month :)

Don't forget, if you get your #5 finished by January 31st, bring it in and show us and your name will go in the  drawing for our nice monthly prize! Even if you don't get it completely finished ~ Get it at least to a quilt top, and come in to the shop and show us, and we'll give you a coupon for a discount to purchase your batting and backing fabrics :)

And to inspire you and get you in the Finishing mood, here are a few finishes that our Renter, Pat Scully quilted up on our HQ machines yesterday...

She was on a roll and finshed the quilting on Four kid quilts for the Southern Comforter's Guild to be donated to the Georgetown Pediatric unit.  She kicked these dino quilts out three at at time!  All they need now is some binding :)

Enjoy the day!
