UFO Hit List – Wanted Poster

July 17, 2012

After seeing all my quilts in a large laundry basket, I decided to create a UFO Hit List for completing my quilts.  Perhaps this will give me an incentive for finishing that will seem more valuable than the Finish A Long.

I wish I had Seamed UP data to aid in this, but for now, I’ll have to rely on my memory & my actual quilts that are in front of me.

I don’t know how when or why I got so many UFO’s. These are the ones that got special folders in my Pictures file & I’m sure I’ve missed some here.

The Chain Gang

Some of the items in this list I may never make (the fairy godmother one, but you never know). Some I have made, so I should cross them off the list.

Some of these have morphed & changed, and some are never started yet.  And I KNOW I’ve missed one or two. Or 5.

But this is pretty much my list.

In order by year of start date.

So maybe seeing this and posting my UFO hit list I can visually see making progress. But this would also mean a new hit list generated for every new project.

Stats at the beginning of the project, July 15, 2012.

  • Total Quilts: 48
  • Quilts Taken out: 10
  • Quilts Remaining: 38

We’ll see where this project goes (if anywhere).

I know I could always put a half a cross on everything that has gotten to the quilt top stage.   One by one on some days (maybe I’ll pick a day of the week) I’ll put a target up on a quilt or two that I could highlight.

If I was only half as fast as some of my most admired fastest quilting friends, this list would be knocked out within the week month. That’s not the point I’m sure, but I am using this method to help keep track of all my quilts. For now. 🙂

Happy Quilting.

And tell me if you make up your own quilt hit list.


  1. Oh, yes, I have my lists – but I had to divide them into two — tops and still piecing. The total number is too mind boggling to comprehend otherwise. Although I’m not sure that the list is helping me this year. I’ve managed to start 10 new quilts and I’ve only completed 5….

  2. Greetings, I am a finisher. I have two tops that are completed and not quilted. I am waiting to finish them when I know who will get them. I am mainly an art quilter and show in Gallery’s. But I do make at least 4 large bed size quilts a year. I look forward to your podcast. You have a very sincere and witty personality. If you like you can see a bit of my work on facebook under the name fibermoon. Thank you for sharing your time and talents with the quilting poders of the world! shelly beth
