    Thanks everyone! I was going to donate this one to Project Linus like the rest but my husband liked it so much (which is unusual for him to comment on a quilt to begin with!) that I'm going to keep it. There could be a cat loving kid in the family someday right? The cat fabric is so pretty, I wish I had more of it!

    You really have made some pretty pieces there...I like them. I keep all the things I make that I think look dumb too. Silly us for thinking that cause they are not dumb I love all of them and the weave quilt I wouldn't even attempt that. I still have the first wall hanging that I amde in a quilt class and I tried to hand quilt it didn't work. Then I tried to machine quilt it OMG what a mess. Make pillows they would be cute )

    QUOTE=Lara122;5920007]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. =/[/QUOTE]

    Well, finally at the quilting stage on my March UFO. Thank goodness I can't afford to burden a long armer with this one! Points, I don't need no points. Lumps at intersections, have a lot of those. Thread under the white fabric, how can you spend hours making sure all of them are picked off and then use a lint roller and still have a red thread under the white fabric? Where is my galloping horse? Sure going to need him to like this one right now.

    I haven't been on this thread in ages - my new Pfaff (bought in November) has been in for repair since 9th January and on Thursday they finally decided to give me a new one - hooray! I'd put a lot on 'hold', particularly appliqué, which I'm now cracking on with . That's my story and I'm sticking to it, lol.

    No excuse for this baby quilt however - should have been a Christmas present . Santa's Elves had to write a nice letter explaining that the workshop had been very busy..................

    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.

    Knitette - LOVE this! Such pretty colors and the quilting looks great. And, I'm glad that you are getting your machine issues addressed too!

    UFO Finish #20 is this Easter Egg Table Topper made from swap blocks. I backed it with a big floral of tulips & daffodils in vases so I can flip it over after Easter for double duty! I need to toss it in the washer to crinkle it up.

    asimplelife - your table topper is beautiful. There seems to be an added sense of accomplishment (for me anyway) when a quilt is made from scraps, don't you think?

    For some reason I'm not getting this thread on my notifications--but I found it easily and have caught up--oh what lovelies both big and small. And with a musical fanfare I can say I have some WIP's done. Most of these are going to the NICU that cared for our GS that is already 18 months old. Finally good intentions are getting done.

    A friend of mine gave me these 4 Looney Tune panels. I used lots of black and red as I learned these are great colors for babies as it helps them focusName:  027.JPG

    The last one is still a flimsy.
    The next one is scraps. 2 different block sets-one with a black border and one without. Love the crayon fabric in the border. Lots of "I Spy" opportunities in this one.Name:  036.JPG

    Thanks for sharing. I love the loony tunes quilts. Didn't know about red and black being good for babies - much more striking than the traditional pastel colours.

    This is from a RR we did here in 2010. My grandson picked it out of all of my UFOs for his re-done pre-teen bedroom. Because he has a twin bed I took the last yellow border off and used the fabric for the binding! Worked perfectly....and he loves it! It is called Cosmic Dreams and I love what everyone added to make this an exciting and vibrant quilt!

    Love all of these. I love to make baby quilts in bright colors and I'm told the babies love them too.

Gumballs is 104"x104", and quilted on my Bernina. Log cabin was QAYG, about 78"x91".

    Sherry, these quilts are just so fabulous! I did a smaller version of your turquoise one last month for my charity bees group, except my zigzags were horizontal rather than vertical
