Well did we all finish our projects? I was actually going to ask this question two nights ago, but I forgot when Jim suggested pizza for New Year's dinner. (oops) :oops:

Sorry to say Boston that I fell completely short. Life has been keeping me rather busy with other stuff but I'm glad you're keeping me focused! I need to get back into it and want to start racing through this one.

I'm finishing mine right now. It was a BOM at the LQS and I just got the last block. I have the top all put together, but I haven't got it sandwiched and quilted. I think I'm going to order a fatback instead of piecing the back. Or I may just get some muslin for the back. I hate piecing the backs! And it will give me a really nice piece of fabric to use from something else. :) :) Win, win...right?

Here's the link to mine that I finished. I also have another top almost quilted because of you. You got me started!!!!

My goal for this year is to have less UFOs than last year.

Well now, for those of us who could not make it for New Year's, I could extend the deadline. That will maybe push me back in the sewing room and I can get going on another one. I have not sewn a thing in two weeks with the exception of a button on hubby's pants. :lol:

Good for you Mary. It does make things a bit easier when others are in the same boat.

So for the challenge, how about Valentine's Day?

I finished all that I had set my mind to finish. That was 4 wedding gifts and my son's quilt. I have a whole stack of UFO's to work on this year. But first I have a baby quilt to make and am going to start in a few min.

Well...I kinda did and I kinda didn't. I did finish the 2 that I committed to for the challenge. I finished the top of my Heartsong day before yesterday, but I just talked about including it in the challenge. There is no way I'll be through quilting it by V-day. I'm piecing the back now, then to sandwich and quilt.

Now I have made 2 other commitments to my time...embroider some shirts for the Angus Assoc. Youth group fund raising auction..and a friend wants me to make a baby quilt for her friend..so..of course...I committed myself .... AGAIN... :wink:

I didn't finish mine! In fact I bought 41 yards of fabric at a private sale to benefit Project Linus, and have been thumbing through old American Patchwork and Quilting magazines trying to decide what I will do with all of it! So I probably ended up with 4 more UFOs, or maybe they are just PIGs yet!

gigi2landon, a UFO is an "unfinished object". Any projects that are started and not finished we call them UFO's
