    I just LOVE this! So special and beautiful... great job!

    "Color Me Happy" is UFO Finish #10 for 2013. I'm hooking on quilting with these freehand walking foot waves! They are so fun to do, not to mention fast and easy. This quilt will be donated to Project Linus.

    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.

    This is Everybody's Favorite.
    For those o' ya'll who don't know me I picked out my PC fabric before my book came in. (Don't ever do that!) There are several blocks that don't go well w/my patriotic theme. At least this one does.

    Well y'all that binding went much better than I expected. This is only the second time I've done it on the machine and the first time was a disaster so I was quite apprehensive. Still not 100% satisfied with the results but then I'm pretty picky sometimes. Sorry no pictures. For some reason it won't accept them from this new phone.

    I have been working on clearing out some of my UFO's. I found this small quilt that I had started, got the blocks together, it was from a quilt kit that some one gave me. As I got the blocks together, they are 14 inches square, but not enough to make a nice size lap quilt, to me just a bit narrow, they are measuring 28 x 56. I have no problem with the length, but I know if I add to the width, I should add to the length. Here is a picture of what I am working on

    I need some input on how to finish it.

    Here is what I am thinking about doing, adding a 7 inch boarder between the rows

    Oh, I really like this. Looks like a strip quilt - I don't think there is any need to add to the length if you do this. The long black strip looks great!

    This is a great idea. If ya feel that it needs some black on top & bottom, ya could just add a sm (ie 1" or 2") border there ta close it up.

    Great finishes all!!

    I agree with the concept that you can add width without needing to add length. I often do this by adding side borders without adding bottom and top borders. I do like the look of closing it all up with a final border around all 4 sides tho, to kind of make it look finished. One of my favorite things to do, in your quilts case, might be to add the black between the rows and outside (3 strips) in a narrower width, perhaps 4", then do some piano keys on the outsides and finish with a 2" black border all around.

    I do wish I had more of the fabric to do the piano keys around. Right now I am thinking about doing a 2 inch frame around each block and find a color I have in my stash that goes with the colors in the fabric for a 3-4 inch finishing frame around the whole thing. I am only using from my stash.

    Thanks for all of the input. I may wait a few more days before I do anything with this.

    You are doing exactly what I was going to suggest....sashing between strips sets. To bring it together, how about quilting the black strips/sashing in a rainbow varigated thread? Then you wouldn't need to make it longer by adding sashing around each block.

    I just finished two UFO's started in 2010. The fish one is a "DQ" quilt. The dinosaur one; I had made 3 "DQ's" of the dinosaur back then & this quilt is the scraps from 2 of them. I have enough scraps left to make the third color I did from those scraps but that will come later. I had this scrappy UFO almost finished, so thought I'd just get it done! I just made this one up as I went along...no pattern.

    Finally finished this Asian themed quilt for a Tae Kwan Do instructor who is also a friend! I started this last summer! ( He shouldn't have told me there was no hurry!)
