    SheriR, I'm so glad you didn't cut that down. It's gorgeous and your quilting looks great!

    Great job finishing folks.

    Lara, they finished at 3/8. Measurements?!? We're supposed to measure? LOL. I started with a 2 1/2 strip but my seam was a smidge too big for what I wanted so I trimmed it a smidge before I turned it. Then I tried a decorative stitch on the front to stitch it down. I think it worked for this runner because the pattern is so busy, not sure I'd do the same again. But I am proud of the corners...my best effort yet.

    Shadowirish: What does your zebra avatar say? I can't read "I think it's ????" I'm intrigued!

    I saved the directions for doing a flange binding, but I keep forgetting to try it!

    Wow, I love checking this site daily to see what UFO has been completed - it is so inspiring! My February finish is a Strip Quilt I started last spring. I have two more strip quilts to finish, then on to some BOTM's! I started with 11 UFOs - now I am down to 9! Yippppeeeeeeeeee!Name:  Brenda Quilt.JPG

Size:  1.83 MBThis quilt is 85X95. It was pieced using a FW and a Singer 319w in treadle, then finished with my Pfaff 1222e.

    Wow... gone a few days and missed all of the BEAUTIFUL finishes posted! Way to go everyone... let's get those UFOs out of the their closets, drawers and baggies!

    I've got 2 more former UFO now finished kids quilts to show. It felt so great to drop off 9 freshly washed and crinkly quilts at my Project Linus donation location yesterday!

    Cats in Dressy Hats and Cats on Skis are both made using my own pattern I call Noodle Recipe. The blocks measure 8" finished and the pieced blocks are made from 2.5" strips (noodles). I've made them totally scrappy before too.

    Beautiful finishes! Wish my phone would let go of my photos so I can post mine. LOL! Anyway I'm amazing myself with not only a second UFO completed but two small additional projects (a small "blankie" and a pieced celtic knot pillow) started AND finished.

    These are great finishes! I had decided not to try to finish a UFO for Feb because I had surgery on my left hand on Feb 19th. But it's doing well (but being used too much-I'm a quilter- enough said- lol) .
    so for the last 3 evenings I have been working on a 22 yr old UFO. Had to do a pieced back & finished that last night. Will try to post pix in sister thread today
