    Hooray and Halleluia!!! I have all the blocks finally made for my DDIls throw. Trimmed up and mostly assembled into the top! I can hardly believe it! I'm assembling it in blocks instead of rows and, wow, how much easier that is! Rather than wrestling all those long seams. Maybe have this finished by the fall!LOL. Hubby and I have battled the "flu" for two whole weeks--ugh--but seem to be over it now, thank goodness.

    Ladies, the quilts you have been posting on here have been awesome! What wonderful progress you have all been making. Keep up the good work. Love each and every one of them!

    I went to a retreat this past week-end and finished three projects, yeah me! The one that I was happiest to have finished is a string quilt that I started 3 or 4 years ago. Very scrappy!

    Three projects finished, Karen..... Yeah!! I'd love to see them... especially the string quilt. I love those. But, getting 3 done.... pat yourself on the back. That's truly an accomplishment to be proud of. I often struggle getting one done!

    OK. The 'shredder' quilt went the way of all trash, and is really our of sight/out of mind! :-) I finished the comfort blanket (only two layers) for a church friend with a rare disease. Even wind blowing on her arm can cause pain. So I backed the piecing with fleece...soft and no seams. You can see the blanket in my avatar along with my new (19 months old) quilting inspector named Nibbs. I've finished 4 UFOs, so think I'm going to start an entirely new one!

    Good for you, coopah. A finish is a finish no matter the method. And, yes..... start a new one. That's what I've been doing...argh!! But, I only have 2 UFOs at this point. Yes, you heard it right.... 2!! and one of them is just a quilt top I bought at an auction....... so I'm iffy at counting that one.

    I did get the kitty quilt done for my SIL.... delivered in on Easter Sunday. I posted it in the pictures section. So now, it's time to start collecting the projects to go to the cabin for the summer but I don't know what I want to take...... decisions.... so hard to make at times.

    Spring has sprung and so has weeds. I love gardening and that's taken a lot of my time. Easter has been here and brought lots of family. More time consumed. But I love it. I haven't spent as much time in my sewing room as I'd like but I have found the rest of my life is rewarding too!

    Qlter Sue, some ways of assembly are easier, it takes a little bit of thought to figure it out. Good for you and your completion, feels so good doesn't it.
    Karen G, 3 finishes, way to go!
    Coopah, courage to toss, I need to borrow some from you. Good job. frees up your mind.

    My Orca Bay is completely pieced! However it is in four sections, sandwiched and ready for the quilting. I couldn't make the quilt as you go work with the pattern I had in mind so I'm just going to quilt it in sections and then combined together. I'm so grateful for all encouragement received. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
    SEW MUCH FUN!

    Rhonda Lee, it was more frustration than courage that led to tossing the 'shredder!' Since letting that go, I've finished the UFO in my avatar and begun a new quilt. It's kind of a DP4 patch. Hadn't done one of those, so thought I should!

    Keep going everyone...our summer is like your winter...we stay indoors much of the time as the humidity just makes one wilt as soon as the door to the great outdoors is opened! There should be more quilts/projects done by me. :-)

    So happy to have the top together! Only two long seams used to join. Did have to pay attention to which way to press the seams to get them to interlock, but worked well. Now for layering and quilting! Will have it done just in time for the warm weather to arrive here. lol! Two fun things this weekend to feed my soul: Dropped in on my old guild's quilt show on Friday; came away inspired to quilt more and try some new things and maybe even join again. And just for some fun, sewed some scrap strips to squares of deli paper (a la Bonnie Hunter) then trimmed to my 9 1/2" ruler size for a future donation quilt. was fun to use strips found in two large shopping bags when cleaning up the sewing room. Good weekend--happy sewing, everyone!

    I have not finished any UFOs this month. I did finish a baby quilt top and it's being quilted. I have been working on my Hunter's Star, which I hope to finish piecing before I leave on a cruise on the 12th of May. It's inspiring to hear about all the projects being completed by this group.

    I just found this thread but had posted on the finished picture one. I definitely am in need of UFO completions! Up u til 2007 I ALWAYS was of the mind set that I had to "finish one before starting another" , Well then I went to work at a quIlt store and life just got crazy busy......Now I am the proud owner or should I say embarrassed to say I count 38 UFO's. Some of them need just binding, some quilting and binding, some just finished setting together, and then others finished piecing. I am so looking forward to completions.....Thanks for starting this! I have been working on some binding so hopefully will have some finishes coming up soon..
