The UFO Lists

The link list for adding the UFOs closed last night but several have asked if they could still join so I opened the list back up for just a few days. If you’re wanting to play along with the UFO Challenge, please get your list posted.  If you’re not sure what I’m talking about, please click on the orange quilt box in the left sidebar.  Thanks!

Color Palette Challenge – January, 2012

Thanks again to Vicki Welsh for providing the palette and challenge prizes, as well as some color lessons throughout this year.  I’m so excited about this challenge!  Here’s the January palette:

The photo is one Vicki took in the V&A Museum of tiles from an English ship. These were made in 1882 by Architectural Pottery Company, Poole, UK.

Remember that you can make anything you want to make — something large or something small; a tote, a postcard, a table runner, a quilt — you make anything you want to make.  It’s supposed to be fun, as well as challenging, so if you’re already thinking that these aren’t your colors or not what you have in your stash — that’s the whole purpose of the challenge!  Go raid a friend’s stash if you have to come up with a few pieces of fabric in these colors.

On February 1 the next challenge palette will be posted, along with a link box so you have til then to get it done!

Stash Report – Week #1, 2012

It’s a New Year . . and brand spanking new clean slate!  This year I’m going to try holding off and reporting only after I’ve finished the top and including the yardage for the top, then reporting the backing when I’m ready to quilt it and then reporting the binding when I’ve finished the binding so there may be long dry spells when my “used” numbers aren’t changing, and I hope there are longer dry spells when my “added” numbers aren’t changing!

Reminder – this is not a “no buy” commitment.  If you want it, can’t live without it, need it or whatever . . get it!  Report it and move on.  No guilt and no one should make anyone feel bad or inadequate for adding to their stash.  This is all in fun and we don’t stress over fun things, right?

I would like for my net number at the end of 2012 to be the biggest net number I’ve had yet.  What about you??  Will you have a big net number at the end of the year?
