Patchwork Times UFO Challenge January

My husband and I are currently living in our backyard in our RV while the house is being remodeled.  I did think to put 3 UFO's in the RV.  The rest are packed and will not be accessible until February or March.

The UFO I plan to complete this month is a 2 piece project.  My small quilt group had a fall swap challenge in 2009.  I'm the only one who didn't finish her's (embarassing).  These small wall hangings are from the book Square Dance by Martha Thompson.  The book was out of print for a while but there is a new one out now.  It is a "neat" way to make pinwheels and have pieces left over for a second smaller top.

The smaller one at the top of the first picture is made from the scraps of the larger one.  

Anyway, I'm going to hand quilt these little guys, remove them from my UFO's and get them to their new home where they are way over due.

I have also started knitting my own socks mainly due to following Judy L's site.  I haven't knitted for a long time and I had not made any socks before.  I love wearing crazy socks so this new hobby was made fot me.  I finished these socks last night:

Good luck to all you UFO'ers on this first months' challenge.


  1. Great job with the pictures, Judy. Very cool socks. Good luck with the hand quilting on your UFOs. I'm so impressed - I've tried hand quilting a couple of times and gave up. Got a long arm instead. LOL

  2. These are beautiful quilts. I love that you were able to make a second from the leftover bits of the first! My January project in the challenge is 13 years old and has a lot of piece work left to go!

  3. I am so in love with those socks!!! What yarn is that? I need some for July.
    Love your little quilts. I'm thrilled with Judy L's Ufo challenge. This month anyhooo. :) She got me knitting socks too. Love them.
