    I've been on the site for months reading "everything". Everyone on here is GREAT. Would like to say....."I have MANY UFO's and hope to get inspiration to get them completed so I can try some of the new ideas for quilts I have found here.

    Hello and welcome from Ontario. The only problem with this site is it is so much fun you may end up with even more UFO's (oh well)

    Hello from Nevada.
    The biggest problem with this site is that you spend so much time on it, you cut into your quilting time.

    If you don't know about Gladys Wahl, in Des Moines, who will take half finished projects, odd blocks, or donations of fabric, etc., you should learn about her work. She makes lovely quilts, and donates them to various charities. I have sent things to her, and when she has used them, a picture goes up on the bulletin board so we can see them. May all your corners meet, the old one

    Hello from Ohio! I still can't believe how much time I've been spending on these boards, and maybe not quilting quite as much, but I'm so INSPIRED!

    What a wonderful way to get UFO's done and at the same time gives someone an opportunity to sew.

    Grace church also has a Quilt Group. They make quilts for all kinds of charity. If you call, they can give you a number. They'll be trilled with anything and use every piece.

    Hello and Welcome from Northern Indiana ! Glad you joined us :lol:

    I have to warn you though that the board is very addicting :wink:

    Maybe make yourself a promise, finish one UFO start another "wish" project that way you get some finished and still get to try the newer ideas :thumbup:
