    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.

    I have a WIP that changed into a PIG and I am ready to give it wings so it can fly away, lol.
    I know what I thought I was making when I started this quilt, but it has changed several times since then.

    CarrieM, Is there a pattern for your quilt? It looks so 'woodsy'. What a great job you did. Ooops...never mind. I should have read the following posts before I asked. What lovely pictures everyone is posting! I especially was drawn to the batik one but all are lovely!

    Well I listed my Pony blocks as part o' my UFO's so here are the 2 that I have done this month. Actually I did work on another one taday, at the "Sit N Sew" that's at my LQS. I grabbed the ziploc baggie, that it was in & didn't check it before I went. Well I was short a piece. I almost got it done. I hope I find that piece 'cause I don't want ta cut another piece.

    Bev, your blocks are wonderful. So well done and complex. I love the fabrics and the way they come together. Both are excellent in all ways!!!

    THis is a great thread! Thanks Fraew for starting it. Right now I have about 10 UFOs in various stages. I am going to finish them before I start something new. At least, that's what I tell myself!!!!! LOL! I have right now a top to put together into rows and sew the rows together and put the borders on. I have a small 8 x 10 inch quilt with the binding sewn on and waiting to be stitched down. I have two hand projects going. I have some Halloween table runners and wall hangings that need batting and quilting. So far today I have done laundry and checked out this board. Oh, I have two pieces of fleece to sew together to make a little lap quilt. Well, something will get done today!

    I love the fact that finishing is a possibility. I have a Spicy Spiral table runner on one machine, a mystery being quilted on another, a Warm Wishes on the wall and several more in hiding. Yikes! Thank you for this thread to encourage me.

    I finished up UFO #1 for Feb, #2 for the year. I started a PIG, Memories of Yosemite wallhanging (I needed something new to work on ) a couple of weeks ago and just have a little bit of quilting, binding and tabs to finish. It MAY be my
    2nd finish this month--otherwise it'll be done in early March. I need to get taxes done before I go to my machine.

    Woohoo! I posted pictures last Saturday of my 2 year old UFO. (Post #129) I officially finished it yesterday afternoon! I'm so happy. And so glad I didn't cut it down to a more manageable size. I learned a lot this week! Mostly I resigned my idea that I NEEDED a long arm to quilt. This quilt is 110x105!!! And I did it on my lil 'ol domestic machine... I told my husband he just saved $15,000. That's A LOT of fabric!!!

    Oh, I'll post my other pictures on the other UFO thread.

    dublb, love your pony blocks. I would like to see a pick of all of the ones you've completed. I just love the patriotic theme.

    I have finally complete the top of the t-shirt quilt I have been working on for 1 yr now. So it is finally finished, now to get the backing for it. The person I am making it for said she wanted a microfiber for the durabality of it. I am not sure it that will be a good fit for a quilt. they are thinking because you can buy the microsuede/microfiber bedspreads that is should work.

    Any ideas on that? I am trying to give them what they want but also will be quilting it on my home machine. It is queen size, just havent measured it completely for the exact measurements.

    I am hoping to have this done within the next month, considering I am only able to work on it on the weekends.

    I think I'd try to interest her in a microfiber sheet. The T shirts alone have to be heavy.

    Holy cow! You have my admiration. I do not think I could ever wrestle that much fabric under my machine to quilt it. Does your machine have a slightly bigger throat? I decided that anything bigger than a twin size for me goes off to the LA quilter. Your quilting is wonderful, too! My deepest appreciation for your efforts!

    SheriR, that is wonderful!!!! Ditto on the proud of you.

    Microfiber? Uh, domestic machine quilting? That will be a great challenge. Cotton fabric will work the same, expecially if you stabilized all the tshirts. I don't use sheets for the backs of my quilts, very difficult to quilt thru, even on the longarm, stitches don't always secure easily. Polar fleece maybe, but if they are cotton tshirts, cotton backing works very well. Just my opinion. I know, keep customer happy. I've made a few of those tshirt quilts and used cottong flannel for back. Worked well.

    Dublb, nice selection of blocks, keep up the good work. Just think, you are a third of the way done!

    I did finish the top of the cancer quilt. Thanks Fraew for the setting arrangement block. I did do that one, but had to end up making my blocks 16", which was good anyway because it gave me a better secondary pattern with the cornerstones. Will post a photo when I get there, clumsy me, fell, bruised self up and set back into overload again. Still finished that top. Now to pick some backing and get it quilted.
