UFO Challenge 2012 preview

Welcome!  As promised here is my UFO of choice for the month of January!

This would be my dresden plate quilt in Bliss.  I did some work on this yesterday and am excited beyond all get out to get this baby done!  My inspiration was a quilt posted on the Moda Bake Shop, I've decided to make it bigger, using 2 charm packs instead of the 1 the recipe calls for.  I might even toss in some Ruby on this one too! 

Link up if you're going to play along!!!  Remember, the official start date is January 6th!

UFO challenge

I have a new challenge for everyone out there in blog land.  The 2012 UFO challenge.  I came up with this after pondering my accountability post and working on some UFOs yesterday.  So, here's how I'm thinking it's gonna work, every month you pick one project you will work on, preferably working it to total completion, if not, a completed top will work too, I say that because I'm running super low on batting so a complete finish for me might not happen, this way it's fair for everyone.  Each week on Friday I'll post a link up for everyone to post their progress, the final Friday of the month will be the 'showcase' to show off your finished project!  

Each month there will be a giveaway for all those who submit a finished quilt and/or quilt top!  To be included in the giveaway you MUST have your link posted no later than 11:59pm the Sunday immediately following the final Friday of the month.  For example, the final Friday in January is the 27th, entries must be submitted by the 29th at 11:59pm.  

So, the requirements in list form:
-completed quilt or quilt top (this includes any borders!!)
-linked up no later than the Sunday after the last Friday of the month

Not a requirement but could be fun, make it a project that has been collecting dust in your closet for longer than you'd like.  I'll unveil the UFO of my choice tomorrow, along with a Mr. Linky widget so we can start collecting participants.  UFO Challenge officially begins January 6th!!!

Yes, it's that simple!!  If there is enough interest I'll start a flickr group to post finishes in as well, if I do that you must link here to be entered in the giveaway.  Then, come next December at the close of this UFO challenge 

This is an attempt for me to get crafty again and to get back into quilty blogging :D 

If you'd like to sponsor a giveaway use the contact me button at the top of the page to let me know :)  Giveaway item must be quilting related and not exceed a value of $20.
