    Just got my February UFO finished. I made my first block for the Farmers Wife Pony Club Quilt in Feb 2012, but didn't get many more made until March and following. Finished the 65 blocks (of the 90 in the book) in October and making 2 twin-sized quilts out of them. This is my first, the 2nd will have red sashing and I am saving it for later this year.

    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.

    Thank you all! I love getting those UFO's done! Yes, that was a very bright strip quilt. I gave it to my SIL, who loves it! Now on to the March UFO!

    Asimplelife, beautiful baby quilts! And, Carriem what a great quilt - that would look perfect on my FIL's bed - in his little studio apartment in the assisted living place! Congratulations on your February finishes! Ding Ding Ding!

    My February finished quilt

    I just managed to finish this quilt before the end of February. I was disappointed with it - I had quilted two butterflies into most of the white squares but when I washed the quilt the shrinkage meant that all the quilting became bubbles instead of identifiable butterflies. Oh well, tomorrow's another month!

    Here's the PIG I finished yesterday--Memories of Yosemite. I visited Yosemite National Park last fall with my BFF and her husband. One of the stores had a package of 4 glicee printed reproductions of old postcards, so of course, I had to buy them. When I got home, I went to www.OldeAmericaAntiques.com to find more blocks. I just arranged the blocks, sashed them and this is the result.
    I used 2 Stonehenge fabrics for sashing, backing and binding and a variegated thread to SID around the blocks and highlighted some of the details in the center block. These fabric and thread colors were perfect colors for the blocks.
    I've finished 2 UFOs and this PIG so far this year. Yay! On to the next project now.Name:  IMG_0919.jpg

    Two more very nice finishes!!

    Rose--sorry to hear about the quilting/shrinkage. That's too bad. It is a pretty quilt though.

    Gramajo--I've never seen anything like the postcard one, that is a fun idea. Good sashing/binding fabric choices.

    Ludlowquiltandsew - I bet that sometime in the future the reciepiant will "discover" the butterfly's & be thrilled. It is a lovely quilt! I have a tendency ta git upset when things don't look like I envisioned 'em. I have ta take a step back & "see" it as a whole. I really do like your quilt. The colors are just wonderful.
    Gramajo - You'll remember your trip forever now! Such a wonderful quilt!

Size:  200.6 KBI made it, just under the wire! I made this quilt using scrap fabrics. The pattern is from McCall's Quick Quilts Oct/Nov 2011 (as you can see, it's been a UFO for a long time!)and the pattern is called Melissa's Maze. Even though I only completed one UFO for February, I did manage to do six BOMs for February, so that's something at least!

    Rose, I love your quilt even if it did shrink on you!
    Gramajo, That is an awesome memory quilt. I went there with my sisters a few years ago. Wish I had been a quilter then and perhaps I would have thought to do something similar!

    Here is my first big ufo that I just finished. I have been working on it for at least a year. I still need to put the label on. This is the front and back and a close up of the label which is an extra block. It is very warm and comfy. Yahoo!

    Standing Ovation for all the quilts being finished!!! They are all so beautiful, I could just look at pictures of quilts all day long... ssnare Depression blocks are one of my favorites and I love your brights & black!

    I finished 3 more UFOs for February yesterday... One little paper pieced table topper (Log Cabin in the Pines) and two more quilts for Project Linus (Scrapped Up Animals & Polka Dot Cats & Dogs).

    I realized last night that I've finished over 1/3 of my UFOs - started with 94 on 10/1/12 and now I'm down to 60. With one more month of winter (at least!) in northern Minnesota I'm hoping to be below 50 by April. Then my pace will start to slow down...

    asimplelife: I like how you are keeping track of how many UFOs you have and how many you have finished. That's a great idea.

    Last fall I came up with reward system - for every 5 UFOs I finish I buy myself something on my wish list (a book, fabric, ruler, etc.) and for every 10 UFOs I finish I get to start a new project. I could see no other way to work down from 94 UFOs and 1) stay motivated and 2) keep a tight lid on new projects (my downfall!).

    This has worked so well for me. Most of my UFOs are lap size or smaller projects and I had a closet full of unquilted tops when I started... well over half of those are gone now.
