    Lara122-don't be so hard on yourself. I think we all have projects that we are not ultimately happy with. My thoughts, put them aside and move on! You accomplished a lot for the month. Back away from the seam ripper....

    Krista: Your quilts are beautiful. I just love the first one, the quilting really emphasises the shapes.
    Robbi: Guessed from your list of to dos that you have a baby in your future, I know, I am a real brain trust. Congrads and have fun. Baby things are so sweet.
    Lara: You need a talking to. Everyone does things that turn out not to be quite what they hoped. I really like your "Kindergarten Star". If your sewing area allows I would put it on the wall, I think its great. Every single thing you do makes you a better quilter. Its the journey not the destination.

    Great finishes. I am still on schedule with my March UFO.

    Hello All. I help with coordinating donated quilts and recipients herein the UK for ProjectLinus. Lara - you can be assured that quilts that you are not happy with will be loved in a new home. Older children don't want pretty pretty quilts but love the idea that someone has made it. We find good homes for everything. Mind you, it would look pretty good in my conservatory.......
    My current ugly UFO project is showing no sign of improvement but I will finish it!

    This is finally completed. It was a RR on this board in 2010/2011. It is called Cosmic Dreams and now will go in my grandangel's big-boy room. He picked it out of my UFO bin himself...incentive for me to get it done! I love the work the members of this RR put into it...absolutely gorgeous!
    Its big, so I couldn't get a really good picture.

    That is such a colorful and happy quilt. I really like it. It is also great to see a RR from the board made into a finnished quilt. I always enjoy seeing fiinished projects or quilts made from swaps. I can see why your grandson picked it out of your UFO bin. Congrats on finnishing it.

    Well I can certainly see why he picked that one! It is gorgeous. Don't we love our incentive makers! I am working on one for a birthday girl who needed a teenager friendly quilt. She picked the autumn leaves swap blocks quilt from my UFO pile. So now I need to finish quilting it. Got two blocks in the center SID but need to do the rest.

    I finally finished somethin'. This is a PL donation. I'm gonna count it as a Feb finish, 'cause except for a few extra FMQ ribbons, it was finished. I did those at my retreat last weekend.

    That was because someone sent me a photo of what i was looking to do and so was able to get it done. It did turn out very wonderful.

    Some great finishes! My goal was to work each evening on the UFO I'm trying to complete & this week it hasn't worked out. Maybe today.
    Agreed to do a qwillo for a teen at church & she came by with all the materials (including thread). She wants something on the pillow part & I agreed to that, then she pulls out about 10 designs- to go on less then 18" that will show! Had to be the meanie & say "no". Be warned- set limits before you agree to do something for people who are clueless to the sewing realities.

    Don't be to hard on yourself. I really like it. Sometimes the best things in life is the imperfect ones.

    So glad to see all of the UFO finishes! I took a little break from actual sewing to do some stash organizing over the last week, my closets are a mess and I need to tame them a bit. I'll be posting some results from "Part 1" later in the Mission Organization thread.

    Here is Garden Cats which is made from the free Warm Wishes pattern at Quiltmaker.com. UFO Finish #19 this year... 59 UFOs to go...

    asimplelife--great job on another finish! I too need to do some reorganizing, but will wait until it gets warmer as I need to move some things out of my "clubhouse" (12x12 shed) and don't want to deal with snow and wet floors.

    Simple life: What a great way to highlight special fabric! Love the colors. Have been wanting to use some grey and purple together. They look gorgeous in your quilt.

    asimplelife: your quilt is beautiful. You organize away...that will give the rest of us a breather from feeling bad that we aren't getting as much done as you!
