    How cute!!!

    This is somebody else's UFO. LOL I received these blocks from a lady who has had 'em for 10 years & she got 'em from somebody else. I sashed 'em last night & will put the border on in the next few days.

    Wow everyone's getting such beautiful UFO's finished! I'm working in quilting Mickey Mouse heads on three signature quilts for my grandbabies. Can I count them for march too if I sewed the backings in march?

    I would've never thought to use navy as borders, but it really works. Seems to make all the colors brighter. Nice dublb!

    Finished sewing the top of my braid table runner together. Now to decide how I want to finish it.

    Started sewing the triangles cut out of my jelly roll top I wasn't happy with into squares. Not sure I like how I have it on my design wall.

    Making good progress on my UFO.... trying to decide on a border. I was thinking 4 inch wide blue with miniature flower blocks in each corner. Opinions? The dark color around it is my design wall.

    I think this is a good place for me. What do I have to do to take part? UFO's, PIG's, and all the likes....I have so many idea's so little time... I'm always thinking 2 steps ahead of my self, and I'm stitching 3 steps behind.
    Currently working on a wedding quilt for DD. I'm stuck on making the back. (and I haven't finished the front yet...Still have to put on the boarders) Want to do a pachwork for the back, but everytime I go to start cutting fabric I FREEZE. I have calulated all my measurements, but! My head says, Do I have enough fabric, what if I make a calulation error, cutting error....Oh! My! I guess I will quiet my stitching demons and just start. thanks for the E ear.

    Kaelyn: Really, really like your top! The blue with the inset blocks will really pull the design together and kind of ground it. Can't wait to see the picture.

    Kaelyn: Did not see your "humility" block, love the name. Thats why I always ask someone to take a look because I seem to be blind to a misplaced block.

    Still unhappy with my diagonal strip blocks so I put them away for now and started quilting DDs blue and green carpenters wheel quilt. Got the SID for the main portion done and decided to get adventurous and do a bit of embellishment in the background blocks around the star and the wheel. Nothing fancy - not that adventurous yet - but I'm liking the darker blue diamonds on the pale blue background. Will post pic when I get done with the diamonds. Then to figure out what to do on the borders.

    I love carpenter's wheels, can't wait to see a photo

    I didn't even see it until I looked at the picture. I think my new rule will be to leave it up on my design wall for a day or two, just in case I missed something. Thanks for the encouragement! I will be going out to pick up some more blue for the border tomorrow.

    Lots of room for improvement, but I'm excited to have ventured this far.

    Kaelyn--looking good! I think a blue border will be a good choice. I too often don't see things wrong in my projects until I take a picture.

    Looking forward to seeing pictures of others current progress.

    My April UFO is coming along. The quilting in the blocks is done. I need to add borders and bind...should be able to finish up this week. Then I will be working on a quilt for a friend of DH's...the friend is a pilot so I am pp'ing some airplanes and alternating with 4-patch blocks (these are done)...then a narrow border and a border of "propeller" blocks. It will be time consuming, but will be much appreciated when finished.

    It's 72" long and probably about 50" wide.
    Really like how the colors worked together. The binding is going to be the medium blue print of the final end border (darker print of center star).
    Wish my quilting could do it justice! But have to keep practicing and might as well do it on something useful.

    Mom6 love your star, one of my favorite designs. Good progress!

    My April UFO is now sandwiched. I hope to start quilting it today, yet another bed size (98X100).

    Looking at the picture of mine I'm thinking that I should have used a fluffy batting to achieve the look I was aiming for. Another lesson learned.
