    Knocking out UFOs - Wow, am I on a roll!

    I have all my UFO stacked in my sewing area. Three stacks, almost finished, about 1/2 finished, tops only. Since yesterday afternoon I have finished 4 UFOs! They only needed a little more quilting and the binding put on. Going to try to finish two more today while GGS is in mothers day out. Wish me luck.

    I am in awe of you...wish I could be that productive!

    Best of luck to you!! I have 3 bindings on small projects to hand sew and plan on doing that yet today!! I enjoy sewing down bindings, so don't dread it, thankfully.

    Good for you. I don't have any UFOs, I totally finish a quilt before I start another. Just how I do things.

    My UFO's seem to get set aside for the most current project needed for the TV program. I think I need to do a TV program on UFO's. What do you think?

    Well good for you. I am not that motivated lately, can't seem to get down into the basement and look through all my UFO's to see what needs to be done. I have been taking silly classes for things like leaf bowls and paper piecing apple leaf table runners. Ugh! I can't help myself.

    Where are the pictures?

    I'm doing the same thing you are. Get them done! Each one has a number now and as I finish the top I'm posting it for everyone to see That I did It. Sort of my reward! Keep going girl!

    Yahoo! for you, Polly. Do you have a future project lined up and waiting for when you finish the UFO's?

    Good for you! It always feels like such a great accomplishment to finish them all up. I did that a few weeks ago. I have a table where I stack my UFOs so they are never out of sight (out of mind). Of course I now have 3 more quilt tops that I have done since then, which need sandwiching and quilting on the long arm. I did finish 2 table runners yesterday, and am about half done with my 19 pillowcases I am making for charity; will finish them today. I will always have UFOs sitting around because I make several quilt tops at a time, then I can quilt them on the long arm one after the other. Then I bind them all at the same time too.

    I'm in the same boat. Boy is it satisfying to be knocking them out! Congrats on the finishes!
