    Do you happen to have a nutpick? Those little skinny things that came with a nutcracker set. I have one that I use to rub down the stitched line where the stitches are to crease the paper more (with the back smooth curved side of pick) and then use the tip to kind of pry the paper up. I also use the nutpick to guide fabric up to my needle to save my finger from getting sewn, too. Hope that helps but the wine may not hurt either.
    She who dies with the most fabric, didn't sew fast enough!

    Glad to see there is now an official thread for this. I'M IN!! I'm really good about piecing tops but I get bogged down in the quilting either because hand quilting takes forever or because I'm still fairly new at doing them on the long arm (1 year veteran). So most of my quilts need the quilting and bindings finished. I am going to have to start one new project for a swap and there will be another new grand child to make a baby quilt for but other than those I think I'll be able to just concentrate on the UFO's. Can't wait to get started!

    I'm in ! I have a 3 or maybe 4 year old applique Christmas quilt that I have been hand quilting. It's the hand quilting that gets me. Not so quick or enthused about it. But after finding this UFO inspiration, IM DOING IT !!!!!
    Have discovered paper piecing!

    I'm in! I've got 9 or 10 or more. I also joined the FWSPC so I'm going to be busy, but this thread might help me to not get so wrapped up in the FWSPC that I don't finish any UFOS. I have a tendency to get bored in the middle of each quilt that I do.

    I like the idea of a partner to keep the motivation going so to speak. Maybe we could do this amoung ourselves?

    I have 2 I will be working on soon,
    1. skull quilt for my son, started a # of years ago to be a tree skirt LOL, now he wants it as a queen size, already bought the extra fabric (on black Fri on sale)
    2. log cabin wreath, wallhanging, top done and binding made, need to load and quilt.

    think I will go make an excel list to keep me on track LOL
    After 2 years with the same signature I have been requested to remove it. Bye

    I pulled out a project that is a UFO and I have all the blocks sewn into pinwheels, a red and white quilt. Not to set them into a pattern and get it sewed up. Want to finish it this week so can give as a gift to boss' wife who is very ill and in a lot of pain. Want it to be a healing quilt. she could use some extra love. Pray I get it done.
