    Here is my UFO Finish for the week - Bright Blue Strings. The blocks were from a HGTV Quilting Forum swap several years ago. I'll be back to comment on everyone else's projects... my main computer is kaput! at the moment and I only have access to pictures from my laptop.

    asimplelife--that really is a fun quilt! The bright blues frame each "block" nicely.

    Thank you carriem! I agree, I love how my eyes want to "travel" all along those shades of blue. I think it's so amazing how blocks from many quilter's stashes come together.

    Ditto for me! Earlier this week I blogged about being UFO Obsessed and finally started 2 new projects that I'd been stalling on (I get to start a new project after I finish 10 UFOs). I worry that my newly found Finish Mojo will vanish.

    michelleoc: I love your March finishes, especially that baby quilt with the beautiful quilting and lovely soft florals! Way to go!
    mimiknoxtaylor: What a great idea for those blocks! I hope I can remember that someday when/if I have grandchildren.
    Shadowirish: Your QAYG quilt looks great! I really want to try that technique.

    Good luck everyone and keep up the good work.
    The only reason I've been able to finish so many is because mine are mostly crib size (thank GOODNESS!). If all of mine were large quilts I'd be sunk! Good for you, you are making great progress.

    Asimplelife: Your string quilt is beautiful! The UFO I hope to finish in May is a string quilt QAG. Want to take a rest from sandwiching.

    I've set a goal of one UFO a month, and here is the finished one for March. I made the blocks years ago and decided to get them sewn into something. Wow, have my quilting abilities improved!! I even had to take some of the seams out and redo, clearly I didn't know about scant 1/4 in. and didn't realize the importance! haha. I put pink flannel on the back and it will be my nap time coverlet.

    Thank you ladies. Feels good to get these UFOs done. Thank you all on this thread for the inspiration to keep going. I have picked the April project, and easy one, just have to quilt and bind. Everyone, keep the pictures coming, there are such wonderful quilts/projects, love seeing what you are doing.

    Okay, I finished my first April UFO. I've been working for the past half hour to try to get the picture to show up here. I've resized it and everything. My brain feels like it's going to explode so I'll try again later.

Size:  192.3 KBFinally got the picture to show up!! I could have had another quilt done by this time. April UFO. My long-time friend had all these pink squares left over that she gave to me, so I adapted A Moda Bakeshop Original Recipe (Heart Garden quilt). I'm giving it to a friend that decorates her house for each holiday, and she actually didn't have a Valentine's Day quilt. I hope she likes it.

    March - UFO Completed

    I finally got the binding on my Craftsy 2012 BOM Quilt. First time I machine quilted, which was a challenge as I usually hand quilt. Lots of fun, but so happy I am finished.

    Michelle, your friend will love the quilt! It will be a real picker upper on display during those gloomy days of Feb.

    Cpmaple, really beautiful finish and congratulations on your plunge into FM.

    Wow I disappear for a few days and everyone goes nuts! All of these look great you guys, both the March and April finishes! Hopefully I can get my April done in the next few days...it is my last UFO technically. Then I can start on all my new projects!

    michelleoc--good job on this heart quilt; like the ric-rack...that makes it fun.

    cpmaple--nice to see this BOTM finished. It looks good. I started but didn't like some of the blocks so ended up changing to a different pattern for some of the blocks....mine is still a UFO and not very high on the list right now.
