    Got Some UFO's Done!

    Finished one quilt for a birthday present that isn't even belated yet! And two charity quilts that someone else is going to quilt for me! I would put up pictures but I can't figure out how.

    WOW, awesome finishes and lots of them. I am feeling a bit left out, will get there though. You ladies are being an inspiration to me seeing how well you are progressing. Here is a finish for my daughter. No this is not a ufo, I only had to cut up, she did rest. Yes, I helped load on longarm but she did all the rest. Good thing, I couldn't.

    You can do it, Sheri! I highly recommend the "Cut-A-Round" ruler for it, however. On further reflection, I actually could easily have made this out of a whole piece for the background, rather than piecing it.

    This is great because my New Year's Resolution this year is to get all my UFO's done and out of my sewing room closet! I already finished a large quilt I had started in 2009 - got that one done and quilted in January! Now on to the next quilt top sitting half done! This is the quilt I had started in 2009, and just finished!Name:  flannel house quilt.JPG

    Welcome and what a wonderful and inspiring quilt you have shared with us as your Jan. finish. I look forward to seeing many more lovely quilts as you play your way thru those UFOs 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.

    Ok, I'm new here. I've read through many of the pages here and I believe the UF in UFO stands for 'unfinished', but what is the O? Thanks.

    Same as the traditional UFO - Object. That way it covers the whole gamut of unfinished objects - quilting or otherwise

    Thanks. I suppose I could join but I am only working on one quilt project at the moment and it should be done in mid march. Sooner if I could set and hand quilt for longer than 2 hours of an evening!

    Hey Ranchwife, I don't suppose you live near me? I'm a ranch wife too (most days I feel like the rancher) in NE Cali nowhere near the Bay area or disneyland.

    And WELCOME by the way.

    Welcome
    BoJangles! I just love your quilt w/the house. Way ta go!
    Thank you all for the nice comments about my "house" flannel quilt - I just realized that quilt was started in 2008. Yep, I have made a commitment to myself to finish all my UFO's this year. I have 5 BOTM's to finish, 3 Strip quilts, 1 mystery quilt, 1 French Braid, and 1 french braid obsession! I love this thread, hopefully you guys will keep me motivated to get them all done! I am finishing one of my strip quilts now - I hope I can get both of them done for February!

    Geeze, I do actually finish quilts - I think I finished 4 last year - but, to look at this note it would appear I just start quilts and never finish them! I didn't even realize how many I have sitting until I started to count - you know, one or two a year that didn't seem to get done! After 10 years or so, they add up!

    Nancy

    I have finally finished one UFO, this one was started in December 2011 right after Christmas.
    It is a pieced, quilted & beaded wallhanging of our 9 grandchildren. Name:  P1010052.JPG

    I am happy to report that I have stitched around the designs on all 52 of the tshirt blocks now!!! I did the last 8 today.
    Next I'll be adding fabric strips around each block. I have some of the 2.5" strips cut, but will have to cut more so I have a lot of variety. But one of the harder parts is done!!! Yayyyy...

    Gramquilter2, I love the wall hanging! Wow, stones and beading! That is going to be the one thing all the grandkids will fight over after you are gone! Remember, these quilts will out live us! What a great way to encase all the grandkids in one place!

    Ok I'm trying to get my nerve up to attempt finishing the binding in DGS birthday quilt by machine. Have it stitched on the back, pulled around and pinned. Gotta get it done because his birthday is next week and I'm going to be leaving in the morning for opening weekend at Sherwood Forest Faire. Have to finish setting up the booth (candles, not quilts) tomorrow. Not sure whether I will be coming home Sunday night or sometime Monday.
