PHD in 2020: June 1 Report

Well, I have completed 12 UFOs for my PHD in 2020.  That’s the number I said I would complete!  The UFOs that I complete in the remaining months of the year will be a bonus!

Here are all the finished ones!

Revising My PHD in 2020

Obviously, I’m not going to sit on my duff and not finish any more UFOs this year!  I have 27 UFOs left to complete … In my books, that’s 27 too many!

SEW … my plan is to complete at least 6 more.  If I get more done – that’ll be a bonus!

When I made my original plan (obviously not set in stone) I listed 12 UFOs that I hoped to complete.  As time went on, I finished several that were not on the original list.    My new plan is to complete 5 that are on the original list, plus one more.

Here’s a list and pictures of the 5 incomplete UFOs …

  1. Scrappy Repro
  2. Summer Solstice
  3. Echo Lake T-shirt
  4. Dog & Cat
  5. Murder mystery

Now … I DO NOT expect any of the participants in PHD in 2020 to revise their goals … Just keep on working on what you’re working on!

PHD in 2020 – Linky party!

How are you doing with your UFOs?
Post a picture of your latest UFO finish.  And if you’re attempting your PHD in 2020, tell us about your progress!  (And THANK you to all who linked up last time!)

Winner of Island Batik fabrics – Ultimate Home Decor Blog Hop

When I posted my May Island Batik challenge, I offered a chance for Canadians to win some fabric.  You can read that post HERE.

I used a random number generator to pick the winner …  Yes, there were only 11 entries that I accepted.  The winner needs to live in Canada – so many US entries were omitted.  Sorry …

Anyhow, I’ve sent the winner an email … If I don’t hear back from them by June 3rd, I will be picking another winner.

Winnie the Pooh Sew-along

I haven’t started this yet … so I’m not sure what the schedule will be, but I do plan to start the sew-along on June 8.  In the meantime, you can access the pattern HERE. (scroll down the page).  There are 3 sizes to choose from.  Your choice as to which size you choose.  There is also a HONEY quilt you can purchase that has the 4 characters in it.  SEW CUTE!!!  There are no fabric requirements for the pattern … I will be making the large size and will let you know approximately how much fabric you will need for the faces.


One who sleeps under a quilt is covered by LOVE!

Happy Quilting!

  1. Hi Gail! Fab-uuuuuuu-lous job. I love that you extended your goal for six more. That’s seems quite doable Plus you’ll be so close to having your remaining UFOs near the teens. How exciting. ~smile~ Roseanne

    • Thanks, Roseanne!
      I figured I better change my UFO goal … otherwise I’d just focus on squirrels and more squirrels with the occasional DREAMI … this way, I’m ‘forced’ to work on some UFOs!
      Happy Quilting! 🙂

  2. Congratulations! I always like to be done early and you hit this one out of the park – as they say. Can’t wait to see what you do to keep occupied. I have a couple of quick ones I hope to finish in June to get a little ahead of the game myself.

    • Hi Kathleen!
      Thank you!
      Well, some of these UFOs might morph into more than one quilt … Florabunda morphed into 3 … the t-shirt quilt might do something similar … Will have to wait and see.
      Good for you, planning to get ahead on your UFOs!
      Happy Quilting! 🙂


  3. I found your great blog and saw several things that I would like to do too. However, I only found instructions in vides and no written instructions. But since I don’t have a PC near the sewing machine and the way to the PC there and back is too far, I only work according to written instructions. Where can I find something like that ?? Or is your blog just something with sewing machines integrated with PC?

    So I have z. B. interested in the Stay at Home Round Robin or Floribunda.

    I also looked for an email addy to contact me, but unfortunately without success. Can you help me?

    Sorry for my bad english.

    Greeting Guilitta

    • Your English is fine!

      Thank you for your kind comments regarding my blog!

      Sorry, I do not provide written instructions for quilt patterns that are not mine. That would highly violate plagiarism laws …

      The Florabunda pattern is one of Bonnie Hunter’s free patterns and you can access it on this page: If you read this page, you will find a link that will take you to a pdf of the pattern which you can then print.

      As for the Stay at Home Round Robin … I will post a summary of it in an upcoming blog and you can then print it out.

      I have also replied to you via email.

      In the meantime, Happy Quilting!



    • Yeah Pamela!!! Congratulations on completing UFOs!
      I know that you HAVE to create at least ONE new project every month for Island Batik. But those are fun, aren’t they?
      Happy Quilting! 🙂


  4. 12 finishes is awesome. Well done!! I managed to get one UFO completed this week. But I’ve got backings picked out for a few more to finish.

    • YEAH!!! Anja! I saw your completed UFO! A lovely finish!!
      If you’ve got backings picked out – you’re almost to the finish line on those quilts!
      Happy Quilting! 🙂
