    You guys are cracking me up. And it's funny. While I was taking the pics I thought I like the brown in the quilt but not in the border....

    Krista can you give me a picture of your FIVE piece border?

    I have plenty of red yellow purple. It would be scrappy. I'm purchasing more neutral for my backing so I'd have more for borders if I need.

    I don't know...it's so full if color already. The border needs to pull it together.

    Last night I finally sewed the binding to the front of the Xmas star wreath quilt and then spent 2 hours taking it off! And now it's back on again. The right way!

    I have no doubt how my UFOs multiply...frustration!

    Hope to get it hand stitched to the back this weekend. I would love to bring it to show and tell at the guild meeting next Tuesday.

    Here are the UFOs I have in the binding stage. Both are lap quilts that will go in my living room... the darker diagonal Shabby Roses this winter and Shabby Heart in the spring (and around Valentine's Day!). I had these professionally quilted last month. Shabby Roses will be bound in the red from the inner border and some of the diagonal small blocks and I'll use the red heart fabric to do Shabby Heart.

    I need to play. It seems I don't finish things unless I have deadline like a birthday. I have too many starts and not enough finishes. I can't post any pictures until I find the USB cords for my camera as I changed printers and the new one doesn't have a SD card slot.

    SheriR ... the Card Trick in your ativar, is it made with pieced squares or does the fabric just look like that? It's awesome looking. Do you have a bigger photo of it on the board somewhere?

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    Oooh I've been good today and so has the napping 2 year old! I finally got the binding stitched to the front on this too! The pattern is Row by Row by American Jane; Isn't Christmas Jolly fabrics.

    Dang, took credit for this in 2012 too.

    I push the needle with the side of my middle finger, so I wear a leather/plastic adjustable thimble thingy that covers the side of my finger. When I sew on binding, I seem to push the needle with both the side and tip of my middle finger so I am trying to also wear a thimble also...struggling, but I know that I have to practice.

    Binding...using just the tip of my finger, not the side.

    Yayyyy, I posted a finish so now I get to post here on my next project... the UFO in progress. It's a king size tshirt quilt. Any questions as to why I've put this one off? lol. I started cutting the shirts last summer, but was so overwhelmed, I just set it aside. There are 40 shirts going into this quilt, then I have another one to do that will only be a throw. Since I haven't started the throw one, normally it wouldn't be considered a UFO, however the shirts were sent to me from California last spring to be made into a quilt, and since the quilts are for someone else, however understanding they are about waiting for them, lol, I have counted them both as UFOs, as they do need to be delivered back to their owner before either of us expires. Heehee. This is what I got done since Thursday!

    My UFO is nearing completion! This top was completed about 3 years ago. Since then, it's tried really hard to become the UFO of the month, both in 2011 and 2012. Now, since I have a long arm machine, I have no more excuses. First UFO of the year is this one. Quilting is done now, just have to bind it. I'm hoping to finish by Wednesday, for Show and Tell at the guild meeting, because I know that once I give it to my son, I'm never getting it back

    I need to set such a goal for myself. But I won't be posting any pics. Can't on this board. Guess it's my computer since I follow directions and still get nothing.

    But thanks for a great idea

    Oh Krista that's so nice!!!

    Thank you GrannieAnnie. Charisma did a fabulous job with the quilting. Less than 1/2 of 1 side left of binding. It's sooo close to done. Can't wait.

    OK. I'm in. One question. If I have bought the layer cake, pulled the coordinating fabric from my stash, chosen the pattern from a book and bundled the whole thing. Does this count as a UFO? I haven't actually started any cutting it yet.
