Challenge status...

Each Friday for the month of December I plan on updating the status of my personal challenge that I first blogged about over here.  Any changes to the status of an item on this list are in red:
  1. Deploy T - blocks made, need to assemble quilt top
  2. 2012 FQS Designer Mystery BOM - 1/2 the blocks made
  3. HST BOM - needs border added, backing made, quilting and binding
  4. Terrain Swoon - needs backing, quilting and binding
  5. Christmas Quilt - needs backing, quilting, and binding; backing made
  6. Our Quilt - 1/2 the top is assembled, all blocks are made
  7. Coming Home Ruby - needs backing, quilting and binding
  8. Sisters Ten - only 4 blocks made
  9. FWQAL - need to figure out what I'm going to do with this one
  10. Marcelle Medallion - 3 borders attached
  11. Tumbler (forgot about this one!) - need to assemble top
  12. Scrappy Sprouts - 2 blocks made
  13. the skull - needs backing, quilting and binding; backing made and basted
  14. Hexies (forgot about this one also!) - needs lots of hexies
  15. Lucky Jam - 7 of 9 blocks complete
  16. Xplus - need more blocks
  17. Christmas in St. Louis - need backing, quilting and binding; backing made
  18. Simply Herringbone - need to finish panels and assemble; backing made, basted, quilting in progress
I'm pretty happy with some of the progress so far.  I have not sewn at all since it's pretty darn good progress for just working over the past weekend.  I've decided that Simply Herringbone and the Skull are going to be Christmas gifts, so I really need to get those done so they can be sent off in time.  I've also been playing around with the idea of actually labeling my quilts.  I have made and either kept or gifted 32 quilts since I started quilting.  Not a single one of them have labels.  I'm ok with that, I feel zero urge to track any of them down and stick labels on them.  But lately I've been thinking it would be nice to "leave my mark" so to speak.  We'll see...the biggest thing I've been trying to figure out is HOW I want to label them.  I need to make a decision because part of the reason Simply Herringbone ISN'T finished is that I stopped quilting to decide if I was going to add a label (so that they label would be quilted over a bit and really attached to the quilt).  Decisions decisions...
