    Great finish Wildyard! I thought the t-shirt quilt I finished in May was huge at queen size but that's a monster. Mine was heavy so your's must have been super heavy.
    I've fallen way behind on UFO's. With having health problems & being OFT I've gotten zero finished-but lots started or worked on.

    Another Charm Quilt in the finished column... this is Charm Quilt #3 and puts me over the TOP of UFO Mountain with 51 finished and 50 to go! It will be my 18th donation quilt to Project Linus this year.

    It feels GREAT to be over halfway... it's all downhill now~

    Wildyard..... how did you ever quilt it???? It sure wouldn't have fit on my quilting frame.... and would be pretty difficult to fit under my sewing machine throat. WoW!! Nice job!!

    Down to 50, simplelife??? Amazed again!! Keep 'em coming!!

    Wildyard...that is one ginormous quilt! I'd like to know how you quilted something that size as well. That could keep a whole neighborhood warm!!

    simplelife - you're on the downhill slide. Good for you!!!

    Like the rest of you, I'm trying to decrease the number of UFO's I have. Then, when I saw that some people were keeping track of the number of UFO's they have and subtracting when they complete them, I decided that this was a good idea. A good idea, yes, but I have made some discoveries.
    1. I have entirely too many UFO's!
    2. When I was going through and counting, I realized that I have at least two projects that I only have a picture for, and no instructions. This should be interesting.
    3. I've had some of these UFO's so long that when I went back and looked at them, I thought, "What was I thinking?" Colors that are no longer in style, etc.
    4. I took a project out to start today and realized that I must have been asleep when I cut out the pieces, because what the instructions say I need and what I actually cut out are two different things. The worst part? It's been in my "to do" pile for so long that the fabrics are no longer available, necessitating extra time to figure out how to adapt it to work with what I have.

    Do you think, after discovering all of this, that in the future I might not procrastinate so much on getting these projects started? It's possible, but I'll think about it tomorrow...

    Michelleoc, all four points well taken. Hi everyone I'm just an ole lurker from the 'Vintage' scene but, I do love to stop and lurk around here a minute. I have a UFO that a cousin gave to me a few years back and I am still wrestling with it. Last week I took it to the community center where a few ladies go and quilt and do what we do. Their opinion on this UFO was to replace some fabric pieces and keep going. I keep wrestling with it. Say a little pray for me while I struggle with this one.

    Great finishes everyone, but Linda how in the world did you quilt that giant T-shirt quilt? I have never seen a quilt as large as that one, geeze I thought I did large quilts because mine are always over 100 x 100!

    You all inspire me! I need to get back into my sewing room, but I have been riding everyday I can, horse camping too! Which means I haven't finished a UFO since May's finish! I had all these big plans of finishing one UFO a month when I joined this thread in January! My bad!

    This group really could be called Procrastinators Are Us. Ugh! I can't remember my last finish.

    Sorry it's so blurry, it didn't look so bad in smaller size. L.
    Wow! That's huge. I really like it.

    I think this group is a great idea! Lot's of people getting those UFO's done! The rest of us just need to get on the band wagon! But, yes there are those of us who are Procrastinators for sure, hence the "challenge' part of this thread!

    I just joined QB but I already had the goal to finish 12 UFOs this year--I'm up to 5 so I'm a bit behind. I hope to finish 2 when I go on a retreat at the end of the month. I made a spreadsheet and counted 67 projects...but I'm working on them.

    Shari welcome aboard! I also finished 5 - I did really good until May! I am also still working on them and hope to finished 12 before the end of the year, but I am just glad I got those first 5 done! I also have a list, but only about 14 to start with! Happy sewing!

    Ok ladies, I am in need of some encouragement. I have this QAYG that I MUST FINISH by Wednesday evening. I really don't have that much to do, just finishing off 6 rows and then binding. But I am having an AWFUL time getting motivated. Here's a pic of the little monster: Name:  2013-07-17_10.25.38.jpg

    I have fewer than you do, Nancy. But it's seeming to take me a long time to get any done. Company will be here again today.... so the UFO that I've been working on will have to be put away till they leave. Then, hopefully, it won't take much longer...... it's close..... I think I can, I think I can....

    Go narnianquilter. You can do it! And don't forget to capture a picture as he leaves off to college with your gift in hand...very few prescious moments like that.

    Narnianquilter - you are almost finished! You can do it. Fraew had a great idea, get a picture of him and the quilt as he leaves.

    ShariQuilts and BoJangles - you have been doing great!! Keep up the good work. I felt that I was falling behind as well so I made a mini-challenge for myself to complete 5 UFOs in August (what was I thinking?!?!). I can probably do it, provided housework goes completely by the wayside and my family can forage for their own meals!

    Narnianquilter, your baby acessorizes his quilt beautifully. What a great aunt you are!

    I have a near finish. Not a UFO except for that nagging to do list in my head lol. I'll quilt it this weekend when I get home to Texas. It's for my daughter's golf coach who has retired. Their banquet is the 24th! I think I'll have it ready for her to give him!

    Hi ladies, remember the other day when I said that I was trying to complete a UFO that a cousin passed to me years ago and that it was a difficult piece of work. Well, I finished it. I had to replace some of the fabric in the top. Add new fabric to complete it, but, it's DONE. Now, I'll find some backing and let my cousin LAQ it. But, it's completed pieced. Thank you for you inspiration.

    Thanks for all the comments on my monster t-shirt quilt all! The fact is, I did quilt it on my regular home machine and it was a beast to do. I had to put chairs all around to help support the 10# wt. of the quilt. I did the 1/4" outline for the most part, as I had already done the quilting for the individual tshirt blocks before I sewed them together. So really all I had to do was quilt the sashing and borders.
    Mostly I used the puddle technique, along with rolling the part that was in the throat. It helped a lot that I didn't use batting, as the t-shirt squares were already double layered and I used flannel on the back. The recipient lives in California so they really didn't need a "winter heavy" quilt.

    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.

    Good job! Has that baby gotten bigger since the last picture?
