QQQ UFO Challenge 2016

How often does life come in the way? .... I'm asking myself this question today - February 2, 2016. 
Why, you may ask? Because I intended to be a better blogger this year, but it is already February and I have done only one blog post at the beginning of the year! 
The plan was to do a blog post last weekend. For me, to make plans is a waste; plans always fail and 'of course' the plan to blog last weekend failed too! Not my fault this time; I-net connection was off for 6 days! One week without access to I-net or access to my Etsy shop, is that acceptable?! NO! Fortunate the local Post Office has I-net access and I was able to check in a couple of times during the week.

Well, that's history now! :) 
Today I'm going to show you my UFO's. Yep, we all have UFO's, don't we?! :) 
Quilts Quilts Quilts! Etsy team is hosting the UFO Challenge 2016 and deadline for the entries was January 31, 2016. You can see the entries here. I've added only a few of my UFO's and hope to finish them all before end of July 2016 (deadline). 

This is my favorite UFO; Postage Stamp Quilt. 
I have used 2.5 inch charms from swaps only. The quilt is ready to be quilted, hope to get the batting this week.

Heaps with HST (Half Square Triangles). It should be enough for two small baby quilts.
For this one, I have to buy backing, don't have anything suitable.

Flannel baby quilt. I've had these fabrics F-O-R-E-V-E-R! Time to make something out of them. Have everything that is needed.  

Another heap with squares. The idea is a lap quilt, but time will show what comes out of these fabrics. 

This butterflies bag has been sitting here another year! I intended to finish is last year, but it's still the same! :) 

The same with this one; ZERO PROGRESS! The 'Izzat Biryani' is a rice bag from Pakistan. These bags are strong and perfect for reusing together with old jeans for grocery shopping bags. 

...and a few other UFO's not listed for the challenge...

An Advent Calendar that needs binding. Don't have anything that fits...

Boring place mats! Not sure I like them... I don't have binding for these either... 

Two Christmas stockings, I'm turning them into two small wall hangings. 
I think I have fabrics for the red one, but not sure about the other one....

I have a few more UFO's, but not sure I'm going to do anything to them in near future.

Great idea to put all your UFOs (or those you intend to finish this year) out there; I'm not sure I would be as brave as I try to hide mine somewhere :)! You've got lots but then quite a lot doesn't need much work anymore. I'm sure you can do it. Good luck!

it drives me crazy when I do not have access to the internet. I like how you did your postage stamp quilt - is every other block set on point? I might do that with my 2 inch blocks that I have.

how many squares do you have in the pieced blocks for the postage stamp quilt for the blocks not set on point I couldn't see from the photo?

All of those UFOs look great. I can't wait to see them as they are finished.

You definitely have a lot of projects on the go. No time to waste for you!
