    So come cut up my scraps so i can make one of those adorable charm quilts. LOL I know you saw it asimplife. thanks for the info on how to organize it. that pile comes from last years push to get UFOs done. I need to have a scrap busting thread so I can do that. I know there is a stash busting thread, but need that scrap one. LOL
    I do have the scrap thread marked. I just can't seem to give it away. I did give away about 10 pounds of fabric to a young lady starting in quilt. I told DH that I am going to just have to sew it together and make up a bunch of scrap quilts to donate. Maybe I should mad dash them all together and sell them at the craft show for $75 a piece just to use up the scraps.

    QuilterMomma - I wish I could! Oddly I don't care much for cutting yardage for a new quilt but I love taking my scrap bin and cutting it up in to useable pieces. I have bins of squares and strips cut and ready to sew... my favorite kind of quilting is with scraps.

    Nanna-up-north - Thank you... these charms are 6.5" which are perfect to show off those fun fabrics. I belonged to an online swap group years ago so I just love seeing them finally ready to be loved by someone small. Yesterday on my blog I showed a picture of my 10" stack of charm squares on my closet shelf for future quilts. LOL

    Here is Charm Quilt #5 - UFO Finish #37 for 2013. I like the mix of softer colors with pops of bright in this one. I am so glad I discovered freehand walking foot waves for quilting - I think it looks great on these patchwork quilts. And it is fast and fun to do!

    Wanted to post my most recent finish, a UFO dating back around 15 years. This finish definitely would not have happened without the encouragemwnt of this and the "therapy" thread so thanks gals!

    I finally got this airplane quilt done...not an old UFO, just a quilt I started in January and was planning to finish in June...driver's ed running around took more time than expected, then I hurt my shoulder in July so was very limited on sewing time the last couple month. It is cloudy here today so the picture isn't the best. First time I've done a "flange" in the binding....not perfect, but it will do.

    Wow Carriem! Are the planes paper pieced? Love the pop of red in the flange. I've never tried that technique either but I think it looks great on your quilt.

    asimplelife--yes the planes are pp'd...except the very front triangle...that was sewn when I added the "sky" corner. It is "raw edge" since I haven't learned any other "applique" yet.

    For anyone looking to use up scraps, check out the scrappy quilt album here on the QB. You will have so many ideas. There are pages and pages of wonderful scrappy quilts, with more being added all the time. I love checking out the albums when wanting ideas for quilts. There is so much talent on this board. I always get more ideas than I can ever use!

    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.

    Carrie: Your quilt is amazing. That flange technique is really a winner, so striking.

    Carriem - your quilt is gorgeous. The flange is really nice, that's a new technique that i've been wanting to try out.

    I'm pretty proud of this UFO Finish... at 60.5" by 72.5" it is the biggest top I have quilted myself by far. And, I'd do it again!

    The blocks are from an online swap at the HGTV Forum years ago (2006 or so). I assembled the top right after the blocks arrived and bought backing for it intending it to send it out for quilting at some point. I'm going to keep it in my car to use at outdoor sporting events for a cuddle quilt.

    Nice job. 9 patches are so versatile.

    simplelife--another great finish! I'm tackling my UFO pile--no I won't count them--would take too much time

    Today spray basted a 2009 UFO and will be quilting that later this week. Finished the binding on this Christmas wall hanging. It's small enough for a table topper too. Guess I shouldn't have used the gray back ground--quilt attached to the fleece so nicely though!Name:  AJ and Karn's.jpg
