New Years Eve Challenge

My friend Bren joined the New Years Eve Challenge on Finn's blog. Bren pointed out to me that I had some UFOs and I should join in the challenge too.......So I did! I went on Finn's blog and signed up a few of my UFOs.
The first thing I need to finish is this quilt. It needs to be quilted and bound. It is a wedding present for my friend's daughter. I've shown it on a previous post but here it is again.

This top has to be finished next. It is a quilt for the American Hero Quilts organization. I will do the quilting but it will be sent to someone else to be bound. When it is finished, it will be presented to a wounded soldier.

Next I would just like to get this top pieced. It needs setting triangles added and the blocks put together. Quilting will probably not be finished on this one yet.

This top was loaned to me by a friend of mine 3yrs. ago to practice machine quilting. Think maybe I should finish it?

Last but not least (for now)...... This is an applique that I started in a class years ago. For now I would like to finish the trellis border. I love to do hand applique.

I'm going to try, No, I am going to accomplish all of this by the end of the year. If I don't go into this with a positive attitude I'll never succeed. In my first blog, I showed my hand quilting project which is still not finished but it is going to have to wait awhile.
While I was at joining neat things, I joined the Fall Into Fall Giveaway. I will post my giveaway before October 1st and draw a winner on October 15th so please sign up. You don't have to be a quilter to enter. Make sure you make the rounds to get your name in on this giveaway. Your can find the participants at the link above.
Happy Quilting

I think you can get those projects done if you set your mind to it (sounds like you have!) Of course, the American Hero quilt is especially wonderful, and what a kind and loving way for you to share your talent with a deserving recipient!
