    Finished binding this one today, a UFO from last winter. I had originally planned to give it to my niece (8 yrs old) who loves cats, pink, and purple, but she saw it while it was in progress and didn't like it because the cats weren't realistic. I'm very glad I found out before I gave it to her, and will probably end up donating it to Project Linus.

    I think your cat quilt is fabulous! I have it on my list of quilts to make some day. 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.

    Question: Do you have to do the quilting yourself or, after it's pieced, can it be sent to someone else for quilting and then you put on the binding?

    Wonnie, I'm not sure I understand your question's application. If you mean for it to count as a finished UFO, you can finish it any way you want. We are a very relaxed and supportive group, and our only purpose is to cheer and encourage one another in getting those UFO's out and finished.
    Some have even "finished" a project by giving it away as they no longer cared for it. It still counts, because it is no longer in their pile of UFOs.
    So you see, we are very open and accepting in our interpretations of all things related to this thread. Basically, it's you make your own rules and we support and encourage you. Some of us set goals, but it's not required, and if you set them, and don't meet them, we will give you hugs and urge you to try again next month.
    Welcome to our thread, huggggggggs and smiles
    PS: If your question was in reference to something else, please let us know more so we can give you a more proper answer.

    Thanks for your quick response,wildcard. Have a few very pressing projects to get out but when they are done will join your group.

    Some of us just wander in and out so you are welcome to as well. Lol! I did really well at the beginning of the year, but got bogged down in other things and have been doing everything in the world but UFOs lately. I do still check in on everyone's progress though.
    Love seeing all the beautiful finishes!!!!

    Another table runner finished this morning...I gave it away already too...to a lady (in her mid-80s) a couple miles away who offered us some apples and peaches. She was so surprised and was looking forward to using it right away.

    DD chose the backing and binding.

    ***guess I should have gotten a close up of the flower fabric.

    Everyone has beautiful finishes this month (as always!). You've been very busy. I only have a couple, because I got distracted making receiving blankets. The first one is just a little table topper. A friend gave me the fabric piece and I wanted to try prairie points.Name:  DELL Venue Pro_000147.jpg

Size:  1.09 MB The second finish is a quilt that I started in 2008 called Somewhere In Time. It was the 2008 BOM on BlockCentral.com. I was making it to go on our bed, but it took me so long to finish it we now have a bigger bed!Name:  DELL Venue Pro_000144.jpg

    Hi there! I've wandered in an out over the year when I've done some work on a UFO...I've been trying over the past year to do some substantial work on a UFO every time I start something new. Kind of like a check and balance.

    As the new fall session of classes will be starting shortly at our quilt shop (and I've signed up for 3!!) I pulled a UFO out this weekend to work on it. I pulled out my Border Creek Mystery Quilt from two years ago. As of last night I only needed to sew two seams (my last two border pieces) and the quilt top will be complete. Whew.

    Last week I pulled out some UFO blocks (string quilt blocks) and put them together for a table runner which immediately went on our coffee table once the binding was done.

    Slowly by surely I'm getting some UFOs finished, or repurposed. My first class is in 3 weeks...gives me time to work on one more UFO then I'll feel better about starting the 3 new class projects.

    michelleoc.... that r,w and b floral is fabulous and your table topper with prairie points is so pretty and cheerful, I love it!!! Also love your quilt. I'm not sure of the color on my screen so am wondering what the second bright color with the red is. It looks almost coral on mine, but whatever it is, I really love it with the red. Great jobs!!!
    Viv.... hope you will post some photos for us to oohhhhhh and ahhhhh over. We really love seeing what everyone has done!! Happy to have you with us. Hugs and smiles everyone!!!

    Nice kitty quilt kaelyn! Nice detail on quilting.

    Asimplelife, love that baby quilt! Feeling good you must be.

    Carriem, love that table runner. You are doing such great work!

    Just on these last two pages, such inspiration for finishing out quilts. Love the UFO Quilt Show we have created here.

    i did get a finish this weekend as well. A tablerunner, but it was not a UFO, it was leftover fabric from the swap, had to make one for myself.

    But, this one is a finish for me. I had all those orphan blocks from swaps all over the place that did not fit into any quilts from last year. So put them together in this one and just played with some free motion quilting. It is dangerous for me to watch you tube videos on quilting. LOL

    Ditto............hope to get back to them after the holidays. Love all the great finishes I've been seeing when I do pop in to see what's happening. But, these 3 months are hectic for a crafter selling at craftshows. I WILL GET BACK TO IT ALL SOON...I promise!

    Remember, it took me lots of UFO finishes to get to this point on quilting. LOL

    Well Fraew, you need to let us know if you are needing such things. I may have a couple more, I am not sure. If you need them I can check.

    wildyard - good eye, it's kind of a coral color. Thanks for the comments. I'm so glad to have it done so I can work on something a little smaller now!

    QuilterMomma- your quilt is gorgeous and so is your quilting!

    Mod Art is UFO Finish #42 in 2013 and #58 since 10/1/2102. The bright charms were from a swap which I had sewn together into 4 patches and started sashing together into rows when it became a UFO in 2008. I've fallen hard for black & white prints lately so I added the cornerstones, made an extra row of blocks and finished it off with more B&W prints. It will be donated to Project Linus (already washed and ready!).
