    February I didn't finish any UFO's but still very motivated. I was able to get 3 quilts pinned and quilted 3 quilts, any progress is good.

    ladydeluxe - good job, you still accomplished a lot!
    asimplelife - you have inspired me. Next week I'm going to count my UFOs, and hopefully not give myself a heart attack!

    Thanks, Bev. You're right - I do like the quilt as a whole.

    What a lovely quilt. I love the fabrics you've used. You did better than me on the BOMs - I'm going to have to do the ones for February and March this month.

    Great finishes! We had a health crisis arise with DH so spent the last day of Feb dealing with that. (Funny but he's my priority over getting a UFO finished-LOL)
    plus it necessitated us going OOT. Oh well, love seeing everyone's finishes and I'm close enough to a finish on this 22 yo UFO that I surly can get it on the March tally.
    Y'all are such great inspiration!

    Finaly an UFO done

    I have been a busy girl but none of my UFOs got totally completed. This thread motivated me to dig up swap blocks and finnish a quilt. This will be a picnic quilt and is made from blocks in a swap Deb Watkins did.

    I even added a label. My appologies for the quality of the pictures. DH took them for me on his phone.

    Had family stay unexpectedly this week so was unable to get into my sewing room then I had a two day trip to the Netherlands so March 1st has arrived without me finishing my UFO. I only have a little bit of quilting to finish and then the binding so should be done by the end of the weekend. Then my UFO challenge for March is to finish the matching twin quilt (top just needs one more border, then sandwich and quilt and binding).

    So many beautiful finishes, this thread is really inspiring me to get all my UFOs finished. I have a system and can only start a small project to run along side my finishing so I have the thrill of the new together with the satisfaction of completing the old.

    Nice job Anna, ring that bell girl.

    Ssnare, great job girlfriend, you are coming along. Love those colors.

    Asimplife, OMG, you are really on a roll, keep it up! So now that you have five new projects to do, what did you pick?

    good job with the quilt annasquilts. I especially love that backing fabric. Where'd that come from?

    Fellow quilters, thank you for your kind comments. Foxflower, the backing fabric I bought used. I mostly end up with boxes of scraps but in the midst of it was yards of this fabric. I really like it. It might be from 2000 or so. It is very fitting for the back. I am saving the strips left over to cut squares for I Spy Quilts. I gave one strip to my friend to use for kids quilts. The colors are just so happy.

    So, I looked at this thread a while ago and was like "Eh, that's not for me!" I am here today eating my words because I realized that my list of projects includes 4 UFOs! So, today I am working to finish the one that's been around the longest, a quilt for my daughter. I started it over 2 years ago!

    Love everyones finished projects!

    Ssnare, I really like the colors in your tied quilt! So bright and purrrrrty! I especially like your choice of border fabric - it makes the quilt pop!

    Annaquilts, you did a great job with the swap blocks! Your quilt doesn't even look like a swap block quilt - it all rolls together very smoothly!

    Michelleoc, your quilt is very soft and comfy looking! Nice job!

    Asimplelife, jeeeeeeeze you are on a roll girl! What great finished projects! You are an inspiration!

    Gramajo, very purrrrty Yosemite commorative quilt!

    Welcome narnianquilter, whether you have few or many, this is the place for getting those UFO's done. Hugs and smiles, we are happy to have you 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.

    I did manage to get a small wall hanging done, the center was an embroidered cross that was framed with purple batiks. It was given away before I remembered I hadn't taken a picture. The purples were from my scraps I have left from doing my purple gumball quilt.

    I have 3 more to finish, these are gifts for special speakers at my Eastern Star meetings. I will get a picture of the next ones I complete.

    March UFO

    I'm not sure if this qualifies as a UFO - I made it last year using quilt as you go so all that needed doing was the binding. It's taken me six months to sew the binding on, but I'm so pleased that it's finished at last.

    Rose--very pretty quilt. Good job on getting the binding done! What method of quilt as you go did you use?

    Well I found this thread 2 months late...but that's okay as I didn't finish and UFOs....and I have SO many.
    I think my first challenge is to get organized, find them all, count them and finish something small for March.
    That is my personal challenge.....now I am cringing....so much to go thru......okay tonight tonight I will do something tonight! Wish me luck!
