WIP Challenge

AJ has set a challenge, 12 WIP in 12 months. A WIP is "work in progress" and I have alot of them.  Rules in full here. Plan is that everyone will stay on track and some sewing rooms will be decluttered, yipee. Will link up my WIP with WIP Wednesday to keep on task.
My WIP List is on the side, in no particular order I would like to complete -->

1 & 2 - Castle Peeps, made using Mix Tape pattern, I made all the blocks and there's enough for 2 single bed quilts, I just need to sash them together, backing has been bought and I really want to see them finished and on the kids beds.
3 - Oliver's nautical quilt, (not that we live by the sea anymore), no pattern for this but I have a heap of fabric to play with, I made rows of flying geese to run parallel, not really sure why. No stress with this one, will be fun.
4 - Pink 9 patch, this was a quilt-a-long with Amanda Jean back in 2009, I'm not even sure where this is? Most likely to not complete, just being realistic, and if I do finish it (miracle or miracles) I will use as a teachers gift or donate somewhere.
5 - Huts, I really want to finish this one, the quilting will bring it to life and I fancy a bit of free motion. Looking forward to seeing this on my wall.

6 & 7 - Half Square Triangle quilts, I have 2 here that just need sandwiching and quilting, small size I could finish in a weekend? These would be make cute wall hangings or maybe a Christmas gift?
8 - Green Bento Box / half log cabin quilt, all the strips are cut and I think one block sewn?
9 - Neptune hourglass quilt, this was a jelly roll that I started, not to keen on finishing so will have to push myself.
10 - Black, white and teal quilt, this just needs the binding to be hand sewn down on.
11 - Pink and green squares, single bed top that just needs to be sandwiched and quilted then will be donated for a raffle prize somewhere someday.

12 - Queen Bed floral kit, the florals maybe a tad outdated but nice and bright. I bought the kit maybe 5 years ago?
13 - Oval Table Cloth. I started this on Boxing Day so will count as a WIP, my MIL asked for an oval tablecloth with an elasticated edge, plan to have finished for Christmas 2012.
14 - Another Christmas WIP,  Santa Sacks. I finished Stuart's in time for 2011 but just ran out of time for the other 2. Promised the kids I would have done for Christmas in July.
15 - Placemats Modern Style. I bought the fabric and mapped out the pattern, yet t do anymore.
16 - Sock Monkey birthday party table decorations. Don't ask.
17 - Assortment of Softies, really need to finish the platypus for Cate and work on some smaller bunnies.
18 - Christmas Stars, another started on Boxing Day!
17 - Walk in the Woods. Simple layer cake patch quilt for Cate's bed, I hope this will be my first finish for 2012, started piecing it last night.
19 - Twiggy, Emma has been politely mentioning this quilt for some time
20 - Couch cushions, have a heap of upholstery fabric picked out, just need to cut and sew.
I know there's more, most on here are largish projects, I hope to meet AJ's challenge of 12 WIP in 12 months but don't think I will get 1 a month completed but here's hoping!
