    Let UFO Friday begin...

    Hope you can join me for UFO Friday today. If you have a UFO hanging around that you would like to finish, today is the day! Please feel free to post comments/pictures of what you're working on today. Let's encourage each other to finish some of these UFOs. And if by some chance, you don't have any UFOs, join us anyway. Everyone is welcome.

    Oh I hope to join, but it will be late tonite before I can actually get any quilting done. I have a strip lap quilt that I have been working on. I got to work today and company tonite, then off to the sewing room I will go. I will be checking in to see everyone's progress.

    Well, I have the fabric all cut according to the directions. Now I just need to start piecing the blocks together. I got sidetracked by skyping with my parents in Florida for an hour! My goal is to finish a Michael Miller BOM from 2011. I can finish it this weekend if I stay on track and keep motivated

    I'm in! I've got two UFO tops pulled and ready to press before spray basting and I've got a lap size top to work on while they set up before I quilt them. The 1st contains blocks from an online swap in an Easter theme that I'll use for a table topper and the 2nd is a wall quilt made from 2 charm packs and the "Little Charmers II" pattern by Anka's Treasures.

    The top (3rd pic) is from Debbie Caffrey's book "Open a Can of Worms", I had a hard time deciding on the inner border fabric and finally found this lovely green print at my LQS. This one will be sent out for professional quilting.

    We are supposed to get another 3-5" of snow today and my DH has evening plans so it should be a great day of UFO busting for me!

    I am determined to finish a quilt top today. Just taking a break for a few and then back to the machine. Tired of all these loose ends laying around. Good luck everyone .

    Sure and I have to work today. Just could not get it off. My heart is with you ladies. I finished up a quilt I started on January 1 last night. Put it down three times and so left it all over my sewing table and got it done. Have fun and show the cool projects you finish today or at least a progress photo would be awesome to see.

    sweetpea, hope your day is going better.

    I attached a picture of what I finally managed to get done this morning, those blocks seem to take forever to make! I'm in the middle of making what seems like a 1000 more flying geese for the next block. At the moment, I'm taking 1/2 hour break for The Bold and the Beautiful.

    Keep up the good work everyone!

    so far I have the cathedral window blocks quilted and ready for the next stage, but waiting for my GD to decide on the lay out which will be later this afternoon. In the mean while I pulled out another UFO to start, might as well maybe neither will be completed to day but at least I'm puting a dent in them!

    Raggiemom...how sweet! For a little one?
    Caroloto....fun soccer quilt!

    I just finished my Halloween ghost costume. umm....I started it too close to Halloween last year and couldn't get it done (it's sort of a fancy ghost--not just a sheet with eye holes...lol). So it sat around until today. All done and tucked in the closet for October!

    Have washed a counted cross stitch...I'm going to guess its age of about 25-30 years??? A name thing I made for my high school friend. OK...so we're not little girls anymore, but darn it, she's going to get it. I suppose I'll make a little pillow out of it? Otherwise, I would hate to throw it away, and I only know one person with this name.

    Keep up the good work!

    caroloto, impressive looking cathedral windows. Are they hard to do?
    qbtexas, a pillow with the cross stitch sounds like a great idea to me.

    I've finished another set of blocks. The other picture is of my boys "supervising"!

    Qbtexas, no the quilt isn't for a baby. It actually finishes queen sized. I'm thinking about donating it to our church when I'm done because I'm just so sick of it!

    I plan on cutting and putting binding on a lap quilt and making name labels for my quilt show entries for both the quilt and the pillow case each one goes in. If I can get that done.... I'll be doing good. Been working in the garden and cleaning house all day long!

    qbtexas: what a great cross stitch! It will be well liked, I'm sure.

    I'd like to join you all but since I don't get home from my job until 7:30, I think I'll have to limit my participating to just looking!

    Have fun all!

    I wish I could join you also. Maybe I will be able to spend some time tonight. But have to get stuff together to take to National Quilt Day display tomorrow. Have no idea what I will dig up to take as finished products. But I will take some UFO to work on while I am there. Either needle turn applique or hand quilting most likely.
