    I have fewer than you do, Nancy. But it's seeming to take me a long time to get any done. Company will be here again today.... so the UFO that I've been working on will have to be put away till they leave. Then, hopefully, it won't take much longer...... it's close..... I think I can, I think I can....

    I'd rather spend money on my quilting hobby than the therapist.... I'm probably $$$ ahead.... and I'm happy!!

    Go narnianquilter. You can do it! And don't forget to capture a picture as he leaves off to college with your gift in hand...very few prescious moments like that.

    Narnianquilter - you are almost finished! You can do it. Fraew had a great idea, get a picture of him and the quilt as he leaves.

    ShariQuilts and BoJangles - you have been doing great!! Keep up the good work. I felt that I was falling behind as well so I made a mini-challenge for myself to complete 5 UFOs in August (what was I thinking?!?!). I can probably do it, provided housework goes completely by the wayside and my family can forage for their own meals!

    Narnianquilter, your baby acessorizes his quilt beautifully. What a great aunt you are!

    I have a near finish. Not a UFO except for that nagging to do list in my head lol. I'll quilt it this weekend when I get home to Texas. It's for my daughter's golf coach who has retired. Their banquet is the 24th! I think I'll have it ready for her to give him!

    Hi ladies, remember the other day when I said that I was trying to complete a UFO that a cousin passed to me years ago and that it was a difficult piece of work. Well, I finished it. I had to replace some of the fabric in the top. Add new fabric to complete it, but, it's DONE. Now, I'll find some backing and let my cousin LAQ it. But, it's completed pieced. Thank you for you inspiration.

    Thanks for all the comments on my monster t-shirt quilt all! The fact is, I did quilt it on my regular home machine and it was a beast to do. I had to put chairs all around to help support the 10# wt. of the quilt. I did the 1/4" outline for the most part, as I had already done the quilting for the individual tshirt blocks before I sewed them together. So really all I had to do was quilt the sashing and borders.
    Mostly I used the puddle technique, along with rolling the part that was in the throat. It helped a lot that I didn't use batting, as the t-shirt squares were already double layered and I used flannel on the back. The recipient lives in California so they really didn't need a "winter heavy" quilt.

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    Good job! Has that baby gotten bigger since the last picture?
