    Wow, I feel terrible that I haven't been around more! There are some awesome finishes this week! Back at the start of the year I did a week of UFOs...and it's that time again! Between now and Sunday I am hoping to make substantial progress on my UFOs so keep watch!

    I know how you feel Fraew. But it sure feels good getting it done no matter how long it has taken. And to top it off it such a pretty looking quilt--a simple design that looks great.

    Fraew: Lovely quilt worth the wait! Know how you feel I was completing a UFO per month until May, May's quilt took me until the end of Sept. Yeap, took me five months. October's looks on schedule to be completed by the end of the month. What are you going to be working on now, another UFO?

    I'm not counting, Fraew.....it's a beauty..... just love it.

    I'm one that can't seem to get one a month done. There are too many interruptions and too many people wanting me to do this or that..... but getting them done does feel great. And now mine is packed away to move back down to the winter house.... so, maybe next week I'll be able to get back at it.

    This is from Boom 5 blocks...it became a Comfort Quilt for a church member. It is my October finish....I may have another UFO done this month because I am spending this weekend at my son's lake house. If I don't get busy cooking and cleaning for him! he is single and lives alone...and some habits are hard to break! Like doing "Mom" things!

    That's good progress for anyone. With a 2 old and 5 yr old present it ranks right up there with amazing. By the way, way to make trekkie fabric look classy for the wedding.

    Thanks Foxflower! The bride and groom are BIG trekkies (she even has a Star Trek engagement ring) so I thought the quilt and the dress would be perfect!

    Fraew---very pretty quilt!

    Missqigglewings--nice job with the sampler blocks

    Narniaquilter--you've made good progress this month. I like the photo quilt.

    I had a retreat this weekend and finished my quilt for the month...started by DS when he was 10. Someone at the retreat will be sending me the picture. It's pretty big so I had help holding it up.

    Great finishes everyone!
    I'm not even sure which month I made it to, but I did get some done back the first part of the year. Then got sidetracked by a comfort quilt for a friend (which she hugs me for whenever I see her) and also got involved in swaps in the summer and and fall and have been lucky to get those done on schedule.
    But I did get some done and some one step farther along (ie sandwiched &/or quilting started) so I have made progress. And that's the name of the game!

    Yes mom-6 that is the name of the game. taking a bite as we go on the ufo trip.

    You must finish your UFOs, I won ribbons on my faux drunkard path that I finished late last year, and my applique quilt won as well. Felt good to see the UFOs winning. Makes it worth while.

    Hi everyone. I thought I would be banned from the gang for failing to get beyond May! It looks like you are all far more forgiving than I had hoped for so I'll dig out another batch of UFOs. Life has a habit of interfering with my sewing. J

    LOL, we would be a very small group indeed if we were not willing to accept the way life insists on getting in the way of our UFO progress. Every one of us run into those challenges and we are here to help one another when it's time to take that deep breath, pick up where we left off and plunge back in.

    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.

    Here is my son's quilt...not the "good" picture, still haven't had that one emailed to me, but one I took with the room I have...so only one side border. I also included a close up of one of the blocks. His curtains are the brown moose fabric.

    Oh and this quilt is queen size...doesn't look that big in the picture.

    2 years and 10 months after starting this top, it's finally finished! May I present my Blue Irish Chain quilt top.

    Picture quality is not the best due to resizing the picture for this post, my apologies for that.

    Congrats on all the great finishes.

    miss gigglewings- I just love sample blocks... I only have a few but if I had more I'd make a quilt exactly like yours. It looks so inviting.... your friend is going to love it.

    Narnianquilter- You sure have been busy. WoW! I need to make a quilt for my greatnephew with photos and haven't decided what to do. Yours gives me ideas. Thanks. Getting that much done with 2 little ones is pretty awesome. I don't think I could have been that productive when I was your age.... so long ago. Good job!

    Carriem- Love your son's quilt--- exactly what my older son would love.

    JM- A blue and white Irish chain is perfect..... I have wanted to do one, only in red or brown, but just have other stuff that gets in the way. Lovely.

    and Jacki- I sure understand what you mean when you say you feel guilty not getting as many UFOs done. I can relate. I've had this kimono quilt so close to finished but 1st we had company, then the move back downstate for the winter, then getting things unloaded and put away..... now I'm working on it again. But the days on the calendar keep moving along...... arghh!!

    Back to sewing.....

    Carrie--hope that son of yours doesn't take your/his quilt out to the woods and use it as camouflage! He probably knows better but I can imagine my youngest thinking it would be a warm place to huddle under.
    J.M.--Irish chain such a simple design but creates such a lovely quilt. Very pretty.
