    Thank you. We did a board swap in 2012 but it took forever for me to find the right setting. Thank goodness for Google! 4" finished blocks.

    I finished 19 projects last year, according to my latest count (but I think some are missing). Only 3 of those were previous UFOs and the rest were new starts last year. In addition, I added 9 quilt tops to my pile of UFOs. I have no idea how many are still hiding in the closet from earlier years - at least 4 off the top of my head. And in the past 2 days, I've added 3 more tops to the list. So, lots of finishing to get done this year.

    I think what I need is a moratium on new projects, so I can get some done. When I bought my longarm 1.5 years ago, I had a stack of 7 quilts by the time it arrived (prior to that, I didn't do UFOs - eveything was done before I started another). I told myself I'd get one off the list, for every one on. Apparently that didn't work too well, since I added 9 this year and only pulled 3 off the old pile.

    She LOVES quilts and is a total lap kitty. Here she is on my last UFO Finish of 2013... she seems to think it is hers since I was sewing down the binding the weekend she found us!
    She is gorgeous!

    Count me in! Currently I have three UFO's . One baby play mat quilt, one sampler lap quilt, and a wall hanging. My goal is to finish them in that order. This thread is great motivation.

    That's perfect - just keep telling yourself that once you start the project you can share it here to keep you motivated to finish it. Start creating those UFOs!!

    Is it ok to hang out and quietly take everyone's work in? I can't promise that I can finish one UFO a month, but I think I can get encouragement if y'all will let me just watch from the bleachers!

    By the way, what a beautiful kitty! I'm not normally a cat person, but wow, what a beauty!!

    Hope you all have a great week!

    Ok, so I've reread both threads, and I get it now, I think. After taking a quick look in my sewing room, I have ten UFOs to start with. I've decided to start with an embroidered Flower of the month BOM that I just loved doing. I have 6 small bees to do before i can finish it off with machine quilting. I wish I could post pictures, but that will come. A Simple Life, I just love your quilt and your kitty. And Fraew, what a neat signature quilt! Happy quilting to all, on this snowy New England day!

    I'm in. Tons of UFOs, WIPs and PIGs. Right now I have a WIP - a scrappy for my sofa. Pix when my husband comes home with my camera.
