It is called Cosmic Dreams and I love what everyone added to make this an exciting and vibrant quilt!

    OK guys, this is the week of UFOs! I just mailed out a quilt that has been gathering dust for weeks and started on the final quilting for my daughters baby quilt (she is now 18 months old!). After that, Friday and Saturday are dedicated to quilting 2 Christmas quilts that did not get finished, and then ALL MY UFOS ARE DONE!! Be watching as pics hopefully will follow tomorrow and the days to follow!

    Well at the first of the year I had 6 to finish...but the problem is I have 6 more quilts waiting in the wings. One is a commission piece for a college student, one a memory quilt for my sister in law, one a gift for my husband, and three are wedding gifts. The deadlines for those are May 17th, whenever, July 11th, September 13th, December 21st and one unknown that may spill over into next year...so I HAVE to to get these UFOs off my table to so my incoming works can replace them!

    Narnian: Well my UFOs are more like fourteen with no deadlines so I guess I am lucky, except my kids have all placed dibbs on their favorites. I keep telling them that I will be a better quilter as I go along so the last quilt will be the best. Not sure they agree but may keep my son in place because he got the first one.

    Oksewglad, those are so cute! I have been working on some NICU items as well - receiving blankets, crocheted hats and quilts. I remember going to visit our GS and having a cheery new quilt or a cute new hat, it really brightened our day!

    Well those little items take a lot less time than the beauties you posted earlier. So pretty.

    Cool My UFO to Hotmess

    I started this one a number of years ago. Started hand quilting it but had issues and finally required surgery on a thumb joint. This sat FOREVER, picked it up again and decided to finish it on the machine. It was a very early project and I had no idea what I was doing. So last week it finally went from UFO to a Hot Mess, lol.

    That is beautiful! I have always wanted to do a quilt like that...I just can't decide on colors. So far I want a pink one a green one and purple one....

    And at last here is my longest running UFO complete! Just wrapped it up this morning. Pic still has the unsnipped threads, but it is done and ready to go!

    Louise607 - doesn't look like a hot mess to me. It's really pretty...congratulations on finishing it.
    Narnianquilter-your quilt is pretty. Are the ladybugs appliqued on?

    Louise - I just love the Irish Chain & yours is no exception! It's lovely.
    Narian - Such a sunshiny quilt. So bright & cheerful.

    And another one's down, and another one's down, and another one bites the dust!

    Actually the lady bugs, vines, flowers and sun are all appliqued and hand stitched. I started this project before I ever got a sewing machine and part of the reason it ended up a UFO is because when I did get a machine I was too scared to try and machine quilt it after I had put so many hours in by hand.

    My local Guild began the Finish the UFO project about 2 years ago. We now show them at show and tell also we are entered in a drawing for a gift card at Christmas. It is getting us to clean out the bags of ufo's and make love gifts of them. Thank God. Hugs

    Thanks Lara! I had a friend who walked me through things step by step for a while and that really helped. Then we moved and I had a few issue- until I found this board! I am learning things I didn't even know were possible! (Like the fact that you could use 2 different colors of thread for the top/bottom of the quilt) My next project after the UFOs are some FM QAYG!
