2013 NewFO Challenge

One might ask what is a quilter who has 79 UFOs doing joining a NewFO Challenge? Especially when this quilter has a self admitted issue with loving to start projects?

Barbara over at Cat Patches has assured me that I can count a project as small as a mug rug or zip bag as my NewFO for the month. The premise of her challenge is to start a new project each month. Since my UFO Reward Plan gives me a new project start for finishing 10 UFOs these are the large projects I have in mind for 2013.

UFO Reward Projects:

1.  I want to make the cover quilt using Serenade. I am so anxious to work with a fabric line made in this decade!
 2.  A quilt from one of these books using this Nostalgia jelly roll.
 3.  A 5 & Dime quilt using these fabrics as focals.
 4.  A Disappearing Nine Patch quilt with these charms and red centers.
 5.  This quilt is from Scrap Basket Surprises. I've got lots of Christmas 2.5" strips all ready to go.
On the months where I don't qualify for a UFO Reward Project I'll start one of these small projects or a mug rug. I'd like to have more seasonal quilts to decorate with and also make some gifts during the year. But, I have to finish them during the month or I can't play the next month. I am determined to keep my focus on UFOs during 2013.

I'm linking up my list here.  Come join the fun!


  1. What fun, I have made the nifty notes wallet a couple of times now and changed it into a needle book too, its a fun project to sew.

  2. Great projects. I like your reward plan.

  3. Sounds fun. Imagine having 'permission' to start something new every month! Enjoy

  4. Hey :D Gosh, I am right with you in the insane UFO/unstarted kits club! You have some really fun projects here.

  5. Wow! That's a lot of UFOs! And what an inspiring list of new projects to spur you on to get some finished!
