    I just found a block where the background fabric is wrong side up in the middle of the top I'm assembling. I've set it aside too as I'm not in a fix-it mood right now. Always amazed how I can miss something like that through all the times I've touched it!

    OMG!! this is such a cool quilt...I am in the process of making one out of the swap fabric from LuvTooQuilt 10 1/2 swap, Yosamitesa 6 1/2 swap and SheriR candy swap. It's turning out way pretty like yours ) Mine is all scrappy and I love this pattern way fun to do!!!!

    Ok I just found this swap too and I want to count this as my February UFO lolol. I have no idea when I made this top. I pieced it and it has been hanging in my closet waiting to go to the quilter. Quilted September 2012 then sitting in bedroom waiting for someone (me) to bind it / Ok bound in Feb 2013 tada finished ) Happy dancing made it for no reason loved the pattern can't remember what it's called but it is finished!!!! Now to do a March UFO

    March UFO completed!

Size:  138.6 KBHere's a UFO for March. It's a fall table topper and there are a lot of "firsts" with this one. First time using glue to sandwich and to bind; first time doing an actual binding rather than pulling the back to the front (I really need to practice mitering!); and first time FMQ on DSM without frame, doing something other than meandering.

    Simple Life: I feel your pain. My "fix" went smoothly and didn't take as long as I had thought it would, hope your's goes the same way.
    Dori: Love your color selections, what a beautiful quilt. Congrads on the finish.
    Michelle: Your table runner is gorgeous. Yet another great finish.

    Thanks, DoriDes. Your quilt sounds great. I've never joined in a fabric swap - sounds like it's time I tried one!

    nanna-up-north, yes you just jump on this UFO train and we will toot the whistle in welcome!! We set our goal at one UFO a month, but that is just a guideline. You will set your own goals and we will cheer you on, offer encouragement and support (and advice if asked).
    Each of us works at our own pace as life and body allow. So welcomeeeeee to our wonderful group, and we are so happy to have you. Whoooooooooooooooooooohooooooooooooooo............ .. the train whistle blows for youuuuu.

    We have a sister thread where you can show the projects you are working on and talk about them there. This thread is for showing the finished piece and celebrating your accomplishment!

    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.

    Well, finally - I have a couple of finishes. I had good intentions last year and I did start AND finish some projects that I had to do (like baby quilts and Christmas presents) but UFOs, not so much. Life and work got busy and as you can see by the dates on the labels I did 'finish' these last year, but I finally took the time to make the labels and finish the last two feet of binding. Gumballs is 104"x104", and quilted on my Bernina. Log cabin was QAYG, about 78"x91".

    I did a basket weave one, that isn't as (technically) bad, and I got it finished too. I did put some fleece in the center of it. I (finally) finished a pieced one in January (before I found the Challenge, yay me), but I didn't put anything between the layers, and I just turned it right side out. I did two that way, and one looks awful! Would it be bad to go back now, and try to quilt it somehow? A pillow? ugh . . .

Size:  130.9 KB these are the scraps from the second star I made -- the 'real' one. I gave it to my mil two or three Christmases ago! Definitely, these (were) UFOs! It is washed and dried, but not ironed. Thinking about what to do with it is just depressing! Think I could get ten bucks for it on cl? lol

    Great job ladies on some more finishes this weekend!

    Lara--don't be too hard on yourself. Doesn't feel good to at least have these things finished! I like your striped binding on your star.

    Krista--I think your quilting makes the "twisted log cabin"...might have to hunt for that tutorial...do you still have the link by any chance?

    here is the basket weave one. I used the flange technique to machine bind it. This was my first try at mitering borders. Sick of it, I was.

    I love the twisted log cabin too! tempted . . . . lol

    I appreciate the encouragement, but what in the world do I do with these? I would not want to give them to people I know, I would be embarrassed that they'd think it was the best I could do!! lol

    my piecework on the green and mauve one is ok, but I finished it terribly! I should seam rip and it and re do it, honestly. =/

    Krista, they are both lovely. I wouldn't have thought that the first one was log cabin until I looked more closely. Gorgeous colours.
