    I think part of my problem was the size of the original quilt and knowing I'd have to quilt it myself... but the main thing was that it had been on my quarterly challenge goals 3 times and I just couldn't get myself to pick it up! I really didn't see myself using it since I have several other spring quilts either done or still on my UFO list. And a long Someday List (I love florals!).

    Once I made a decision and put the reduced version together I did like it but I think it works better as a smaller quilt.

    Oh My EMMA!! Hugely gorgeous is so right! That counts as 6-7 finishes in my typical size. It is beautiful but I can't get over the size...

    I have a (ahem...little) finish - UFO# 40 for the year is ABC Charms. The alphabet charms came from a swap on another forum about 5 years ago. It is always amazing to me how well swap quilts turn out! I'm giving this one to a 3 year old boy in my extended family.

    ASL.... it's an adorable quilt. It is perfect for a little boy..... in fact, I need to make a little boy quilt for my cousin's new GBaby..... hmmm makes me think. What size are the squares before you put the sashing around them? I love the stripe fabric..... really cute.

    asimplelife - LOVE the ABC charms. What a darling quilt. It's funny, isn't it...you look at a bunch of fabrics and wonder how they are going to look together, then once it's done it's beautiful!

    asimplelife.....that is an adorable coin quilt. I'd take/make it in a minute (wish that were literal, I'd actually take me a long time based on how well I get things done). Good job.

    Emma, that thing is huge! I made a quilt 120 x 120 and thought that was big. Your daughter will have plenty to cover her pillows with. I do love string quilts. I'm collecting strings to make one eventually, but not that big.

    Thank you! The squares were 6.5". One might think the last thing this top needed was striped sashing but I remember pulling that print from my stash and loving it... go figure!

    Wow some more great finishes since I checked in. I got the binding done on a table runner while away on a trip...camera is still packed, but I will share a picture in the next couple days. Might even get another runner binding done by the end of the month.

    This UFO will be going to the newest baby in our extended family who was born in July. It is from the book "Even More Quilts for Baby" by Ursula Reikes.

    This was a WIP when I fell and broke my leg 4 years ago today and I was making it for another cousin's baby at the time. So in my UFO Collection it is a newbie!

    So I decided to make a quilt that the dogs could lay on, per my intro message, and that got me on a roll. I started into all sorts of projects after that. One of the things I did a while back was cut scraps into 1.5 inch strips and made a whole bunch of 9-patches. I thought I was the only one who had thought of such a neat trick to use up scraps and have at the ready for leaders and enders, but then I saw Quiltville's site!! One look through Bonnie's books and I knew that Tupelo Trails was the way I wanted to use them, so made this top for my SO's daughter who was off to college. I love how it came out! All scraps, including the backing, border, and even the batting, so I felt like I was very thrifty

    Then, excited to have a quilt the dogs could sleep on, I dug through my UFOs to see what might be next. I found a top from a round robin - loved the workmanship, but blue was not my color. I set out for a pink and green quilt, used blue as an accent color, and ended up with a blue quilt that I couldn't use anywhere in my house. Now that I'm all grown up and not so picky, I had a blast quilting the top am enjoying using it every day!That top had been laying around for 20 years waiting for some attention! It's much prettier in person. Making mental note to get a better pic.

    Then I made a new quilt for my friend, but won't post here because it's not a UFO, but it was My Blue Heaven from Quiltville. Turned out super cute! And then I got busy and finished up this quilt that I also started in early 2000's. Soooooo tickled pink with how this turned out!!

    Love them briarwoodpups! Some great finishes Unlike SheriR I did pick a favorite and that's your 9P. Like you I was doing L&E before I heard of BH.
    Oh and I see you are a new member to QB so "welcome from this Iowa Girl!"

    Love your quilts briar, regardless of when they were finished. We are so happy to have you joining us as well. It's always great to have another quilter eager to share and show their work and give us even MORE ideas for quilts to make. Love your floral quilt, 9P and the Arkansas Crossroads. Well, love them all, but those are my favorites. LOL

    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.

    Welcome to the board and this group briarwoodpups! Gorgeous finishes too... I want to make a quilt from small 9 patches one day so I'm really partial to that beauty! Great job.

    Briarwood: Great quilts! Just recently was bitten by the applique bug so your flower quilt is really inspiring. Then of course there is that great scrappy love the design. In short great work welcome to the group, because of their inspiration I have finished five bedsize UFO's this year and am working on the sixth.

    Oh my, what a wonderful show Briar, those are simply awesome finishes. Way to use up those scraps.

    Here is a finish. This little guy has been sitting around since 2005 because I was afraid to quilt him or forgot about it. I did this all on my domestic machine, Bernina 165.

    The pattern is from Elenanor Burns Delectible Mountains. This quilt measures 13 x 13. Took me 3 hours to quilt it.

    QMomma any one who thinks a small quilt doesn't take much time hasn't made one! Very nice.
