Backporch Friends Challenge for 2009

So, Busy Liz over at Backporch Friends has issued us gals a 2009 Challenge...send in a list of 15 unfinished projects for the chance to win a few small gifties. The entrance fee is 2 fat quarters...now, who can't afford a few of those? So, I packaged up my fat quarters and a list for Ms Liz and proceeded to take some pictures of my projects.....WHEW....I'm gonna be one busy woman this upcoming year!! Here are a few pictures of the TOP 4:

First, on the left is a 30's Round Robin I did about 5 years ago. It's done in muslin and 30's... I really like it and need to add some borders to at least bring it up to a single size....then the usual quilting and binding.

These 12 blocks are 18 inchers that need setting. I won them on Ebay a few years ago for almost nothing. I've never "bid" on blocks before but took a chance they'd be nice. I was pleasantly surprised when I got them just how nice they were. Any ideas on setting them?






Now we have the 2008 Thimbleberries Big Quilt....


It needs a few borders so I think this will be my # 1 to work on.....


And, last but not least are the brown/turquoise/cream blocks I did over the late summer in a swap. All of the blocks were beautiful and i'm itching to set them....
I was thinking with these blocks I'd set them just the way I have them laid out, using a setting square and strips between them...nothing fancy, just a simple setting to showcase the blocks. What are your thoughts????

Woohoo...go Peggy! Those are all going to be great quilts! I've always loved those Thimbleberries stars you won on Ebay. They would look good with some sort of setting strips too...lots of possibilities! Good luck with the challenge!

I like the radar map on your weather thingy too!

I agree, Peggy, something simple for the Ebay blocks. I actually like them just the way they look in your photo!

Hi, Peggy!

I'm doing the challenge, too! I was horrified by how easy it was to come up with 15 UFO's. I didn't have to think about it at all! Yikes!

Peggy, I didn't know you had the UFO's bad too! I have some tops that are from 5 years ago. Five years! That's crazy, don't you think? Onto the challege girlie...
