    Hi all, I joined this board awhile ago and then computer glitches kept causing problems, but they seem fixed, so I'm back.

    I live in MN and have been quilting on and off since about 1994. Vision and health problems have put me off, but I've been on a major 'UFO' finishing binge for about a year. I am a clear startupitis sufferer.

    My current goal is to finish using up my 97 yards of Halloween fabric before the end of the year. Now, granted, some of this yardage is for backings, but I kindof became a victim of a fabric collection. So, my goal is to get that collection used in the hopes that it will reduce the 'need' for more. Of course, then, I have to tame the other two collections, but one at a time is all I can take. :oops:
    Quilts included here were all UFOs. The Fishbowl quilt was 5 years old, the Tall Ships more than 10 years old and the Waterfall about 4 years. All completed this year.

    Good for you for finishing up some projects. I have quite a few UFO's also. :)

    Welcome from New York state! I, too, am good at starting, but not so good at finishing. But I have gotten lots of wonderful tips here that should help me get going, things that I had been unsure or didn't know about. I love all your quilts, especially, the ships one. Very nice work!

    Welcome, I love all your quilts. Does the first quilt have different fish in every bowl?

    Welcome back. It's so nice to finish up those UFO's, isn't it? I love your fishbowl quilt. I had some of that black border fabric with the cats on it. I made a baby quilt out of it. Your quilts are just beautiful!
