My 2017 challenge with Meredith and Ann. Thank you Meredith and Ann for sharing this great idea.
It is to work 3 weeks on 17 different UFO’s!!!! and share my progress with other quilters doing this challenge.
Well the difficult part was whittling my list down to just 17 projects LOL. May be I will do this challenge next year too !!!!!!
My personal challenge is now which ones to work on first; or do I need to decide before hand or just pick up and new UFO project after 3 weeks??????
Below are my 17 choices so far?, these could change before we start in Jan 2017 LOL
30th Dec2017 im using my original posting and adding any photos of the ones I worked on!
