    Now if I had 60 UFOs that were all king sized projects I'd be crawling into a dark shaft or just waving the white flag and looking for a new hobby. LOL
    Hello. Thanks for the nice comments about the cushions. I'm like you and have quilting binges when I have a few Linus tops. I do have to be a bit disciplined about not starting new stuff when I feel that it's stacking up too much. This challenge is helping me so much. If everyone keeps photos it will be amazing to look back on the year. Don't know about 'flange' - I don't think I ever say more than edge! Regards Jacki

    Oh but they could be flying geese, Lara. There are always loads of different ways of making up quilt blocks - I just happened to use a way that didn't involve flying geese.

    Jacki, what a great job on the pillows! Those would look great in my guest room, which is done in lavenders and purples!

    Jacki: Oohh, now you have got me curious. I'm looking forward to seeing your ugly completed UFO!

    Emma: So sorry about your bump in the road, but I'm glad you've taken a page from Scarlett O'Hara's book. Think of how much greater the accomplishment will feel when the quilt is completely finished. Hoping that today is better for you...

    I was in the process of putting the three layers together when I noticed that one row was backwards. The lights have been turned off and there will be some TV watching in my near future. Tomorrow is another day. At least it was noticed before the layers were basted together.
    I just found a block where the background fabric is wrong side up in the middle of the top I'm assembling. I've set it aside too as I'm not in a fix-it mood right now. Always amazed how I can miss something like that through all the times I've touched it!

    OMG!! this is such a cool quilt...I am in the process of making one out of the swap fabric from LuvTooQuilt 10 1/2 swap, Yosamitesa 6 1/2 swap and SheriR candy swap. It's turning out way pretty like yours ) Mine is all scrappy and I love this pattern way fun to do!!!!

    Ok I just found this swap too and I want to count this as my February UFO lolol. I have no idea when I made this top. I pieced it and it has been hanging in my closet waiting to go to the quilter. Quilted September 2012 then sitting in bedroom waiting for someone (me) to bind it / Ok bound in Feb 2013 tada finished ) Happy dancing made it for no reason loved the pattern can't remember what it's called but it is finished!!!! Now to do a March UFO
