    Red face UFO's

    I decided that I would work on my UFO's that have been around for way too long. I just started my third one and I also started doing free motion quilting on it. The other two I did were stitch in the ditch, so I'm really out of my comfort zone, but so far it doesn't look to bad, that is if you don't look close. Can't post any pictures as I don't have a camera of my own. Just glad to get some of them done.

    Congratulations on getting UFO's done, that is an accomplishment!!

    I want to practice free motion quilting, and it is on my to do list. I am going to start on traced patterns on big squares layered with batting. Just to get the hang of driving. Then I will free motion.

    Good for you!! I've been working on my ufo's for a while now and only have 3 more to finish. I've learned my lesson and will only do one at a time in the future. It's too hard to go back and try to remember what I was doing a long time ago. Keep up the good work!!

    Congrats! With my total Studio RIP OUT (down to the 4 walls, floor and ceiling) I've unearthed some SERIOUS UFOs. So my agreement with myself is one new quilt, one UFO, one new quilt, one UFO. I hope I can stick to it as good as you've stuck to completing your UFOs!!!

    doesn't it feel so good to complete a UFO? I love that feeling, myself. I've really made a dent in my UFO pile in the past two or three years.
