    Love the grow chart idea! Instead of using a wall and, maybe, painting over it someday. a record that can be kept forever. Love it!

    A lovely Asian quilt Missgigglewings. Just want to report my 2nd finish for 2013. The "You are My Sunshine" baby quilt. Turned out darling but I've had it with trying to post pictures on here so I am not even going to bother again until I talk with a tech friend of mine for advice.
    wonderfully and beautifully made, even if you can't see it on the outside

    I have made a lot of rail fence quilts, and it has never occurred to me to use my ends as another border!! You are a genius! I am SO going to remember this cool idea!! =))

    looks great!

    Wow, you guys are inspiring me to use up some scraps! But, wait I can't! I still have at least 10 unfinished projects I have to get done before I start anything 'new!'

    Great job on all the finished projects! I especially like the little fishy quilt with the border and fish block off center!

    ladies, I have SO enjoyed this thread! I loved seeing the pictures, and recognizing myself in so many places. I never thought I could quilt a top, so I have several completed ones. I have limited funds too -- so I can't always just go get what I would need. I get "UFO Spin" and end up walking away from all of it. I have ideas, and I move on to the next thing, and it is just so nice to see that it isn't just me!!

    without seeing this thread, I have finished a couple of table toppers that I had done just playing. I have my kindergarten collection on my design wall, and it has just been making me despair. How in the world do I pick up old projects where my skills were substandard?!!

    I love the idea of the 'reward' of a cutting a different fabric, or planning a new project, for having worked on/finished an unfinished one.

    I am going to try so hard to be productive today!!

    and I am subscribing to BOTH of the UFO threads!

    thanks again!

    Ladies, I've been lurking on the boards and found this UFO thread and I think it's right up my alley! Currently I have four tops completed and ready to quilt, three quilts partially pieced, 17 quilts cut, and 18 projects with the fabric chosen but not cut yet. In addition, I am doing six BOM projects this year. Can you say overextended? Can you say ADD? Maybe if I feel more accountable I can get more (or something!) accomplished. All the quilts that y'all have finished so far are just beautiful.

    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.

    Misplaced my link to the progress thread so going to let y'all know I now have seven pillows ready to stuff for the show this fall. Plus I'm half done with adding sashing to a group of swap blocks from a couple years ago. So making headway on both current and previous projects. Feels really good!

    I would like to join, but with my busy schedule, I'm not sure I can get one (1) completed each month.

Size:  82.4 KBI've been fighting a cold this week... so am catching up here. Looks like I missed a lot of pretty projects - great finishes every one!

    I put this on my blog today in honor of Valentine's Day and thought some of you other UFO'ers might get a smile out of it...

    *giggle* It's also because my cats are *always* underfoot! One of my boys likes to sleep on my sewing table, and has tried to get his tail sewn more than once!
