    LOL, a big welcome stablemom. No crawling into dark places, now you are one of us and we are here to shine the light on our UFOs. While it's true that we have some spectacular members who blast their way thru those UFOs like TNT, most of us just plod along and get done what we can. So no matter what kind of UFO finisher you are, you will be in good company with many others working at your same pace. Well, unless you are a blaster like asimplelife and some others. Then you will be in sparcer company, but you will have many many admirers in the rest of us. LOL

    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 am proud to announce that last night I finally finished the back for the king size tshirt quilt. Yayyyyyyyyyy........
    Now I am planning to do my own modified quilt as I go, where I stitch the rows to the completed backing one row at a time.

    Thanks, Carriem. I used quilt as you go in rows. This link may or may not work as I seem to be having dreadful problems with my website: http://www.ludlowquiltandsew.co.uk/f...-rows-pattern/

    ha! now imagine how stupid I feel? I followed the link, and those little boogers aren't flying geese at all! (which is *even* more cool imo)

    Celebration....

    Whoopee - finished March project and only 7th. If I do another is it cheating to 'bank' it for the month when I'm being bone idle? Just a thought...... Regards to all. Jacki

    Jacki--those pillows are very pretty! Great job getting them done so early in the month. I would get started on your next UFO and see what you can do...if you finish another it is up to you how you count it...either another for March or "save it" for later this year.

    Thanks for the kind comments. My next UFO is so ugly that I don't think I'll have the same enthusiasm. However, determination I have plenty of so I'll have to bite the bullet. Thanks again.Jacki

    Oh, don't do that! I have a closet full of tops so when I get on a quilting binge the finishes come quickly since I machine bind my Project Linus tops too. I look back and wonder what I was thinking while I was piecing all those tops... were they magically going to quilt themselves???

    Now if I had 60 UFOs that were all king sized projects I'd be crawling into a dark shaft or just waving the white flag and looking for a new hobby. LOL

    Love your pillows Jacki - they are so colorful and I like your pieced "flanges" (is that the right word?).

    This reply contains a warning! There will be some serious whining.

    I was in the process of putting the three layers together when I noticed that one row was backwards. The lights have been turned off and there will be some TV watching in my near future. Tomorrow is another day. At least it was noticed before the layers were basted together.

    Hello. Thanks for the nice comments about the cushions. I'm like you and have quilting binges when I have a few Linus tops. I do have to be a bit disciplined about not starting new stuff when I feel that it's stacking up too much. This challenge is helping me so much. If everyone keeps photos it will be amazing to look back on the year. Don't know about 'flange' - I don't think I ever say more than edge! Regards Jacki

    Oh but they could be flying geese, Lara. There are always loads of different ways of making up quilt blocks - I just happened to use a way that didn't involve flying geese.

    Jacki, what a great job on the pillows! Those would look great in my guest room, which is done in lavenders and purples!

    Jacki: Oohh, now you have got me curious. I'm looking forward to seeing your ugly completed UFO!

    Emma: So sorry about your bump in the road, but I'm glad you've taken a page from Scarlett O'Hara's book. Think of how much greater the accomplishment will feel when the quilt is completely finished. Hoping that today is better for you...
