Here are my 2012 UFO Challenges:
#2 Kamile. This pattern is called Perennial Petals from Quiltmaker Magazine Issue Mar/Apr 2011 by Caroline Reardon. I've started this one only through copying the pattern for the paper piecing technique that will be used to assemble it. Should be easy to grab from my stash.
#3 Klowning. Bonnie Hunter's Little Monkey design that was offered on her blog last year. I'm still not completely sold with this name. It will use up a lot of stash which is famous for Bonnie's designs.
#4 Knoted. Judy Laquardia design called Note to Self. This one caught my attention. Looks like a simple design, but has a bunch of character. I'm all about using up my stash and this one will be good for it too!
#5 Kontinuum. Judy Laquardia design called Connect the Dots. I love Judy's borders. She's so clever in her designs. You'll be noticing that I've got lots of her designs in my UFO list for 2012.
#6 Kaktus. Design called Prickly Pear that was in Quilters News Magazine in June 1997 by Terri Lynn Ballard. Yep this one is a pattern I've been thinking about for a long time. It has lots of pieces but again notice the trend USE STASH!
#7 Klappers. Judy Laquardia design called Jazzy Nights that was offered in Quiltmaker Magazine Issue Sep/Oct 2010. The name is funny don't you think? Can't wait to get to this one...again a stash buster for me...except the Kona black fabric that I'll be needing. Love that Kona black!
#8 Kollinwood Konnections. Judy Laquardia design called Road to Brownwood that was offered on her blog last year. Collinwood happens to be the street that my parents live on. Just a simple change of letters. I'd say I have connections to Collinwood wouldn't you?
#9 Kooky Kins. A Buggy Barn pattern called Crazy Jacks. This will be the second project from this pattern. This one will be for me. I've already got most of the fabrics set aside. If you've never tried one of the Buggy Barn patterns I suggest them. Very whimsical designs and a totally different approach to putting the pieces together!
#10 Kommodore. A Judy Laquardia design called Indigo that was offered on her blog last year. Everyone feel in love with this project that Judy offers free on her blog. It was for her Monochromatic Challenge when the color was Indigo that month. I'm not sure I have enough of these colors, but it's fabulous in these blue purple tones. You may wonder what Kommodore has to do with Indigo...well commodore happens to be the color to the left of indigo in Sherwin Williams palate of colors LOL! I just may be raiding my Mom and Kerry's stash...watch out you two!
#11 Chunky Churndash (yet to be named). I've had two suggestions on a name for this project; Kat in the Korner and Klunky Korners... A Bonnie Hunter design that I'm coordinating in a block swap with 15 others. The swap blocks are due 2/29/12. Joan and Collette are already finished with their swap blocks. Mom and I cut out pieces when I was visiting during Thanksgiving 2011. Our swappers are in southern Maryland and the San Diego, Ca area.
#12 Tree of Life (yet to be named). A pattern from the Temecula Quilt Co. This one is tiny at 11" x 13". The month this is selected will be an easy month.
I'm also going to work at getting done what was on the 2011 UFO list that didn't get finished. Koda's Keeper, Kartwheels, Komplicated, Kaskade, Kurry, Krossfire, and Koriander Kompass. Yes I'm not happy that I didn't get these done; I'm not the type to set goals without results. A 30% success just isn't what it should be!
