Jackie did such a great job keeping us motivated to work on our UFO's, I thought I would see if anyone wants to do it again in 2018!

Are you overwhelmed by the stacks of UFOs? Or are you like me, May not have many UFOs but maybe kits begging to be fondled or plans ready to be fabricated (get it, fabricated) Tongue Out

This year we are each making our list of ONLY 12 projects to choose from.  

Like Jackie, I will pick a number for each month.  You choose if you want to work on the project listed under that number or one of the others on the list, and post that decision.

Just like last year, each month we want to see your starting photo and your ending photo. Progress ones are nice too. No need to check in daily but let us know how you're progressing during the month. And we want to see any finishes you have..show off your finishes so we can ooh and ahh.

Important note: You DO NOT have to finish your project to what it was origianallly intended. If it's something that you don't particulary like or it's just too much work to finish and you've lost interest you CAN make in into something different, a lap quilt, baby quilt, wheelchair quilt, wall hanging, tablerunner, totebag. 

If you are interested in joining, please post your 12 projects in this thread.

I shall be following this topic to see all the awesomeness that you all accomplish. I am back on track to only have a few projects in my possession at any time. I have a total of 5 WIPs and one of those may be only one block enlarged OFL block that will eventually end up being incorporated into a back. UFO's have left the building for someone else to enjoy.

Going in my sewing room today and see if I can make a list.  Great motivation since I want to use my stash and projects already underway or kits that need to be used.
