    I think it looks good with the gray.

    Well, dang, had I known you were looking, I would have volunteered ages ago. We crewed for a hot air balloon pilot for about 8 years before moving from Ohio to New York. What a wonderful time that was! A free ride for every 10 times of crewing.

    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.

    oksewglad - Beautiful finish! I love the how the diamond grid of white squares sets off the other blocks.

    missgigglewings - Adorable hot air balloons... how fun! I went hot air ballooning in Napa Valley 2 years ago - something I always wanted to do. Loved every minute!

    So excited to see the airplane quilt done. You have been diligent to get it finished, awesome job!!!!

    Nice ninepatch quilt. It feels so good to get those swap blocks done.

    I would love to fly with your hot air baloon quilt, just pm me and I will send my address on over. LOL

    Fantastic finishes ladies. I do not have any right now. I am going to have to catch up with you.

    I am going to have a couple here in the next week or so, as soon as I can get some of my own quilting done. So busy with customers and garden that mine are on the back burners.

    OK. Nicely designed table runner. I could picture it in many different fabrics, which would change the mood entirely. Congrats on the finish!

    Oh WOW! Everyone is getting busy getting these UFOs done.... Yeah.

    asimplelife-- love the 9-patch. Aren't they fun? Yours will make a perfect cuddle quilt.

    oksewglad-- You've been really busy... 2UFOs finished. I love them both. X-mas quilts are favorites of mine..... great wall hanging. And your tablerunner is just too cute. I love the fabric..... cute little characters.

    missgigglewings-- Hot air balloons are a great subject for a quilt.... and each one is different. Beautiful! We once had a hot air balloon land in our front yard... the dog was going crazy. When they landed, they whipped out wine glasses and a bottle of champagne and toasted us for being the landowners. That was probably 30 years ago but a fantastic memory. And the champagne wasn't bad either.

    I'm still working on my next UFO.... have to sandwich it together and quilt it..... takes me awhile......

    It really is a good feeling to get those pesky UFO's done isn't it?

    re: hot air balloons--this has me thinking. Brother assists on a balloon crew in NM. Hmmm maybe an idea for him?

    oksewglad - That is the cutest fabric! I like how you have really shown it off.

    This UFO has been the worst of the worst - A Stalled UFO! I have had it on my quarterly finishing challenge for Q1, Q2 AND Q3. It was orginally a twin size quilt from the book "Open a Can of Worms" by Debbie Caffrey. The coins were from an online swap and had been sewn together in 2006.

    But I just wasn't feeling it anymore... so I decided to downsize it into a Project Linus size (about 48" x 60"). I used the leftover coins to make a pieced backing. Now that it is FINALLY done I'm kind of loving it again!

    I really like how the quilting turned out on this one so I'm including a closeup pic.

    Atlantis the Quilt that is a Continent

    Well here it is, she measures 130 X 130. Never say never, but it is going to be a long time before I make another king sized quilt. Thank you everyone for "listening" to be moan month after month after .......! The best thing about this one is that its done.

    Finally I can go to the next UFO, a blue and white Irish Chain. Only 98 X 98.

    Thanks everyone! I have been so close to it for so long that I can't even tell what it looks like anymore. I'm hoping that after I wash it and let it age for a while I'll like it again too. It's for my daughter, she probably has given up on it by now.

    ASL, very cute. The fabrics in this one are awesome..... why didn't you like it? And your backing is perfect. I always fret about the backing when I really shouldn't..... it's a backing. Using some of the blocks is a great idea. I'll have to try that.

    Oh Emma.... your quilt is wonderful. I love those colors and the brown around the blocks really pulls everything together. I know what you mean by not wanting to make a king size again. I made one for my DGD when she married and I said never again, too. So far, I've been able to keep that promise....... really don't like having to quilt one that big.
