Patchwork Times drew the number 6 for the October UFO goal.
My number 6 is the Aunt Bea’s Parlor embroidery quilt project. I have already made quite a bit of progress on this one, since I decided to work on it for my Slow Sunday Stitching project.
I have completed the embroidery for 17 out of 20 blocks. Woohoo!
So my goal for October is to finish the embroidery on the last three blocks. I want to get the blocks squared up and add the corner triangles to them.
I think this may be as far as I get, since the last three months of the year are the busiest work months at my day job.

For September, Patchwork Times drew number 4 from the UFO list. My number 4 is the same as my number 5 goal was…the friendship round robin project. I knew I would need lots of time (I need lots of time to complete almost anything)!
You can read about this friendship strip round robin quilt here, here, and here.
I left off working on this project in March. I was sewing four patches together for borders.
My goal for September is to get the borders sewn onto the quilt top and have a completed flimsy.

The number 8 was drawn by Patchwork Times, as the monthly goal for August.
My number 8 goal was to do something with some machine applique floral sample blocks.
I squared the blocks to 12-1/2″.
Triangles were added to set the blocks on point.
After squaring and setting the blocks on point, I decided to turn them into autumn placemats.
I kept the quilting simple; straight lines, echo, and meandering (I’m not making Van Gogh or Picasso art pieces after all). Here’s a look at the back:
I’ll be gifting these placemats…it feels good to have turned the blocks into something useful!

Patchwork Times announced the number 8 as the UFO goal for August.
My number 8 is these floral blocks:
I stitched these 3 blocks many moons ago when I was teaching a machine applique class.
What to do…pillows…, a table runner…, a wall hanging…, tote bags?

Patchwork Times drew the number 12 for the ufo project in July. My project was to come up with a plan to finish blocks that were given to me when I served as President of my local quilt guild.
Way back in 2001.
I came up with a plan!
I’ve got backing, batting and sashes cut.
And I had a great time sewing each block into an individual ‘page’. What a pleasant trip down memory lane as I worked on each one!
I ran out of grommets, so this will have to wait until I can get some more. Meantime, I do have to finish quilting the blocks.
I’m going to have an awesome (and big) memory book!
