    As a general guideline, we don't count anything that you haven't started as a UFO, be it kit, fabric collection for a future quilt, or purchased pattern. Collecting the parts doesn't make it a UFO; starting it, then setting it aside for any amount of time to work on something else makes it a UFO. Check the rules post for the basic guidelines. Again, these are not cast in iron, and we don't allow UFO police, so you can count your UFO's any way you want. No one is going to challenge you on it. Smiles and hugsssss,

    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.

    My first UFO was given to me as a flimsy and I was only going to quickly finish it up. But on closer inspection, I saw that in one corner, the blocks were turned and out of pattern orientation. I decided to just rip out that one corner and fix it. While doing that, I noticed that the stitching was poorly done, with seam width ranging from 1/4" to 3/4" witihin the same 8" seam. Next thing I knew, I had a pile of 8" blocks in my lap and no top left at all. Now tho, the points match, the seams are 1/4" and I can give it away with a clear conscience.

    I am this close to finishing my first UFO. I started a brand new project on January 2nd...and I got as far as I could before I ran out of fabric. Since I did so well, I pulled out a UFO to work on (it's sort of like a reward in the opposite direction...is that penance?). Not only did I get the piecing done, but I quilted it as well!!! I just need to add binding and I'm done. I'm stopping at the quilt shop tomorrow to sign up for Winter classes so will be picking some fabric from the clearance section to finish this quilt off.

    I'm not sure if I can do a link but I posted about it in the pictures section:

    PokerDiva I adore your baby quilt. Love those soft colors with lots of white!

    My 1st UFO finish of 2013 a quilt I'm donating to Quilts of Valor called "Patriotic Squares". The pattern is called Square Illusions from the book "Quick & Scrappy Quilts: McCall's Quick Quilts Favorites". I sent it to a long arm QOV volunteer this fall and she posted pictures of it on Sunday the 1st - perfect timing to get my UFO fix for the week! Most of the fabrics were from patriotic swaps (charms and 2.5" strips) except for the background fabric which I had in my stash. I pieced this in 2008.

    I have lots of UFO's, not all in the line of quilting, but I will work on this challange anyway. Two items that I have been working on in the past:
    1. Finished my "Africia Quilt" on New Years Eve, (somewhere) New Years Day like 2 am. It is machine pieced & hand quilted. Has four animal prints & 8 animal skin prints. Want to take a picture of the finished project & post. I haven't posted on this new foram so I don't know where to go,
    2. "Africian Safari" small wall hanging. It is a printed fabric, but I outline stitched by hand & half way done with the binding, that will be done tonight. Yeah!
