    These are just little guys, but I finished 2 UFOs today and just had to share them. 3 more quilts to bind (none of which quality as a UFO, since they were all started this year), and then I can move on to something bigger. I just realized that my finishing plan does not actually include a UFO this month - my goal is to quilt a BOM top I just finished in Feb, before I graduates to UFO status.

    In any event, the first picture is a twisted log cabin I made last November. I think I actually found the tutorial on this board - it's made without any paper piecing. And the second photo is a mystery quilt from earlier last year, which I finally finished stitching the binding on.

    I did a basket weave one, that isn't as (technically) bad, and I got it finished too. I did put some fleece in the center of it. I (finally) finished a pieced one in January (before I found the Challenge, yay me), but I didn't put anything between the layers, and I just turned it right side out. I did two that way, and one looks awful! Would it be bad to go back now, and try to quilt it somehow? A pillow? ugh . . .

Size:  130.9 KB these are the scraps from the second star I made -- the 'real' one. I gave it to my mil two or three Christmases ago! Definitely, these (were) UFOs! It is washed and dried, but not ironed. Thinking about what to do with it is just depressing! Think I could get ten bucks for it on cl? lol

    Great job ladies on some more finishes this weekend!

    Lara--don't be too hard on yourself. Doesn't feel good to at least have these things finished! I like your striped binding on your star.

    Krista--I think your quilting makes the "twisted log cabin"...might have to hunt for that tutorial...do you still have the link by any chance?

    here is the basket weave one. I used the flange technique to machine bind it. This was my first try at mitering borders. Sick of it, I was.

    I love the twisted log cabin too! tempted . . . . lol

    I appreciate the encouragement, but what in the world do I do with these? I would not want to give them to people I know, I would be embarrassed that they'd think it was the best I could do!! lol

    my piecework on the green and mauve one is ok, but I finished it terribly! I should seam rip and it and re do it, honestly. =/
