    I'm going to post my last 2 finishes and then I'll get to look at everyone else's pretty finishes!

    Patriotic 9 Patch was started as a QOV project but ended up just shy of their minimum size. I'm really loving this one so might end up keeping it for a summertime throw.

    Bright Hopes is from the book "Quilts from the Heart" by Karin Renaud and will be donated to Project Linus.

    Fraew- I love both of your finishes! I am wanting to do some Halloween sewing in the worst way... those panels are adorable and I love the orange fabrics you chose to frame your scrappy squares.

    Carriem- What a perfect boy quilt... great fabrics!

    JM- I love your crisp blue & white Irish Chain - would love to make one someday.

    Missqigglewings- Great finish for your sampler blocks!

    Narniaquilter-You have been VERY busy! Great job on everything.

    My last UFO Finish for October is Thimbleberries Jacob's Ladder. I love this pattern and love Thimbleberries so am thrilled to have this one done and can't wait to get it up on my family room wall! It's from the book "More Nickel Quilts" by Pat Speth and measures 60" square.

    I love Jacob's Ladder too, it's so much easier than it looks. Yours is wonderful in those fabrics! Love it!!!

    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.

    Love the colors in your son's quilt Cariem.
    Asimplelife, nice finishes again. That jacob's ladder is so warm. Great QOV also.
    Fraiw, that is adorable for Halloween. Nice work and finish for October.
    No finishes for me. I have not had time.
    Agreed, if we were going to kick anyone out for not finishing a UFO, uh, why else are we even here.

    Everyone had such beautiful finishes this month (wait, I mean LAST month). We're getting down to the wire...two more months in 2013. Since I STILL have so many UFO's, I'm hoping we'll start a new UFO "club" in 2014 - it has spurred me on to get more done.

    I agree a new thread in 2014 is a great idea. I haven't been quilting as long as some of you so don't have as many UFOs, but a goal of finishing a started quilt (or smaller projects) each month has been a great motivator for me. I will post a pic of this month's project in the sister thread....

    I too am hoping this group continues in 2014... while I look forward to not being totally UFO-bic I will still be working on them. Some of my remaining UFOs are kind of planned UFOs for the future (bed quilts for future guest room etc.)so I'll be thinking about how I want to proceed with them. But I will have several on my finishing radar of course and maybe in the spring I will be able to dial back to a goal of 1 a month. What a treat that will be!

    Hello I just joined today and hope this group continues next year also. I have a lot of UFO's and this would encourage me to get them done.

    welcome pelikanbus62! This has been a great group and the encouragement is such a motivator!

    Here's my first UFO for November (how do you like that...I act like I'm going to finish more than one this month. Talk about the power of positive thinking! Wait, another word for it is delusional...)

    It's from Fons & Porter's Easy Quilts, Summer 2013 - Elephant in the Room. It's a baby quilt for a friend's new grandbaby due next month. I had the quilt on my ironing board. My husband (who is normally very supportive and complimentary of my work) asked who the quilt is for. I told him and his response was, "I don't like it. It's not symmetrical at all." Yes, he is an engineer. And yes, he made an argument for 'Husbands - can't live with them, can't leave them on the side of the road.'

    michelleoc - I love it! Did you bring the binding from the back? It looks like minky.
    And who says you can't leave a husband on the side of the road? LOL.
    I love quilting - it's cheaper than therapy!

    Michelloec, I love it and what do husbands know any way. Thanks for the welcome. Right off the top of my head I believe I have at least six to finish and at least 6 to start. I need a few more hours in my day to work on my quilts.

    Fraew.... wonderful Halloween quilts.... aren't they fun?

    asimplelife.... beautiful. I think you do such a nice job of fabric selection for your quilts. I really need to do some scrappy quilts to use up some stash... yours are lovely.

    I'd rather spend money on my quilting hobby than the therapist.... I'm probably $$$ ahead.... and I'm happy!!

    Thanks for the kudos. I feel better. Yes, it is minky that I brought from the back. When she opened the gift at the baby shower a bunch of ladies jumped out of their chairs and were fondling the fabric!

    Well, ladies, I know I fell way short of the mark of getting my UFOs done so I definitely will need to continue next year. Anyone can start the new thread for 2014 if I don't get it done before you are ready to post something. Just follow the same guidelines as I used this year, which I borrowed from 2012.
    I wonder if there is a way to make this a permanent group on here. Hmmm.... don't think it will ever not be needed by some members.

    Michelleoc - I adore this one! Such cute fabrics, great color palette and an appealing layout (to my eye anyway!... LOL).

    Here is my latest... I've got a trio of these in batiks that I'm finishing up this week for Project Linus. This is Batik Noodle Recipe 1.

    Thank you so much - that is such a nice compliment! I love playing with color combinations and love fabric of all types too. Kind of wish there were some I didn't feel compelled to collect!

Size:  643.0 KBIT'S DONE!!! Finally after a number of years, this one will go to a baby girl who is to be born in December, 2013. Waiting for her name to put on a label. It was so fun to do maybe I'll start another one, (after I finish a few other UFO's).

    everose, love your tumbler quilt. I'd like to make one, but I have to figure out the cutting without any waste. I have lots of pretty floral fabrics and think they would make a pretty tumbler.
