    Happy to have you Scratchie; whooottttt whooooooooooooottttttttttt... the train whistle blows as another person hops on the UFO train.
    This thread is where we post photos of our finished projects and celebrate and urge one another on.
    We have a sister thread where you can post photos of the UFO's you are working on, or going to work on, discuss plans and projects, etc.
    You can ask for help on either thread and there are lots of us here to answer questions, give advice and encourage and support in whatever way you need.
    So happy to have you and all the other new members with us!!!

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    I has really helped to know that I'm not alone, that others have also accumulated UFOs. I started 2013 with 25 UFOs in various stages of completion.

    5 partially completed quilt tops
    11 ready to be pinned for quilting
    4 ready for quilting
    5 needing binding

    I'm thrilled to announce that at the end of January the status of my UFO's are:

    13 quilt tops ready to be pinned for quilting
    6 ready for quilting
    3 needing binding
    3 completed quilts



    I haven't started any new projects and am looking forward to making additional progress in February. Thank you all, your finished UFOs has been my inspiration.

    It looks like things are moving right along... way to go everyone!

    I've got 2 table runners that are no longer part of my UFO Collection. I Heart Pink (UFO Finish #8) was made using a Thimbleberries pattern called "Queen of Hearts". It was a give-away item from a 2 day quilt shop hop I attended years ago with my Mom and two of her friends.

    And Leoni's Floral Stars (UFO Finish #9) was inspired by Autumn Stretched Stars from Pat Speth's "Nickel Quilts" book. Leoni was the swap hostess where these beautiful metallic Christmas floral charms came from.

    And, hey, I'm down to 69 UFO's from 94 on 10/1/12! Our arctic weather in MN keeps the stitches flying.

    Well done Wendy, am very impressed by your productivity and organisation.

    asimplelife lovely table runners really love the hearts, any chance of a copy of the pattern if it was a freebie? TIA

    Ding Dong finished my UFO for the month a Christmas wall hanging which has been in progress (or not depending on how you look at it) for three Christmases. My goal for Feb is to master posting pictures as well as finishing another UFO. Good luck to everyone for February.

    Lightbulb still hope to post pic

    I have tried everything I know to do in order to post pictures, to No avail. Even created PDF's, still no luck. I don't know what to try next. I just had a thought, I will put them on my flash-drive & try to post from my church computer where I do the bulletin.

    I have joined those of you with a UFO completed. This is a Thimbleberries Mystery quilt from several years back. I really like it now that it is finished!!! Sorry -- can't get the pic to post.

    Great finish, by far my favorite Thimbleberries quilt!

    I continue to struggle with my king size tshirt quilt but am keeping up with doing the 5 squares a day. Today I finished #25, so I'm at the halfway point!!!! Yayyyyyyy.......

    Here is my first February finish. I made the top back in November at a quilt retreat, but waited to quilt it until I got an extension base for my long arm machine. Discovered one of my new favourite rulers making this - a Cut-A-Round for making circles. Easy, fast, and fun!

    Wildyard, good job. I plan on posting a pix of the UFO I'd like to finish this month but haven't even been able to pull it out. We're keeping 2 granddaughters this weekend and at 4 & 6 there is never a quiet time . Never realized girls talked so much until we got these

    Just found this thread, and have been going through and reorganizing what I had and forgot about some of the UFO's I had. I have 3 quilts that all they need is the binding. I am game for this challenge.
