    Well, the weekend of UFO's is going slowly. My husband is gone and I was going to pass my daughter off to a friend for the day so I could get some serious quilting done. Then my daughter ended up sick, and we've been battling fever for the last 3 days. However, 2 of the 3 projects I wanted to complete are done! I posted my daughters quilt earlier this week (it's already been initiated by being puked on) and I just finished up a quilt for a friend. The only thing left to do is a few things I want to applique onto the top! One more to go, and I have 3 hours before the husband gets home! Name:  2013-03-23_14.12.21.jpg

    Narnian: Love your quilt, think the binding in that purpley color really frames the whole thing. Really a neat quilt.

    Great finish narnianquilter! Look forward to seeing your 3rd finish!

    I got the batting needed to finish my March UFO today, so should be able to get it quilted by the end of the month.

    WHOOOOOOOOOO! The week of UFO's is complete, and I finished with 3 hours to spare! The final quilt is complete and for good measure I through in some repair work on my husbands old hat (a true UFO, our dog ate the back clip off over 3 years ago!). Now I am finally caught up and can get to work on this year's projects! Name:  2013-03-23_16.15.55.jpg

    Everyone's projects looks great! I can't tell you how much I appreciate this board - it keeps me motivated to finish all my UFOs. I've finished one project for March, but am hoping to have a couple more done before the end of the month. Just putting it out there, hoping that I don't jinx my sewing machines or anything!

    Start ringin' the bells & sin'in the song!!!! Ya ladie's are doin' great.
    I've been workin' so much on several things that I don't want ta become UFO's. LOL
    This is one o' 'em. My PC block exchange.
    .

    If ya notice there are 2 squares at the bottom that are red. I took the bottom row off & sewed it back on wrong again. LOL I now have that fixed & have put one border on. A tiny turquoise one. I plan on a 2" black one then a tiny red one & another 2" black one. Then I'll bind it in turquoise. I have been also workin' on my DGD's quilt. I don't have a pict o' that loaded onta my computer yet. Maybe These won't become UFO's.

    Wow, I haven't been in here for a while to look at all your finishes! I love them all! Congratulations everyone! I have been very busy with an ill FIL all month! I didn't think I'd get a finish this month, but I am going to try to quilt a strip quilt top that is ready to be quilted, hopefully tomorrow! I did get a finish in January and February, but March is going to be iffy! You all really inspire me to get back into my sewing room and get another UFO done before Easter!

    Here's my 2nd UFO of the month, 4th of the year. Actually it's the 1st UFO; what I'm counting as my 1st was a PIG. I needed to work on something start to finish, so I made "Memories of Yosemite". That gave me enough of a feeling of accomplishment that I was able to finish this challenge. The top was layered and SID and some outline quilting back in 2008 when I started this. I don't FMQ, but kept hoping I learn. The borders needed something more, so I finally asked DD to FM it for me. She did flowers, swirls and leafy vines. It looked much better when she finished.

    Jo: Great finish. Love the way the yellow triangles create a setting for the hexes.

    Great finishes! I'm getting there, slowly but surely. All I lack is the binding. Seems like its taken me forever to make myself finish quilting this one, finally got it done a few minutes ago. Will show picture when it is completely finished.

    Mom-6 Bells and whistles. I have been quilting my March UFO for 2 weeks now, just seeing the light at....! Congrads on your finish. Don't think I will make the March finish but at least close.

    Love that Kalidescope grammajo. that is so nice. The yellow does add a smile on your face. Oh I am hoping to get a few of mine done. I have seven quilt tops waiting to be quilted. Got to get busy on them.

    Looks good dulb, great job on finally getting it the way you want it. That makes UFOs even harder to get thru when they won't go together right. I still think they have minds of their own. LOL
