    I love seeing all the finished quilts. I hope by the end of this month to have some to show for.

    wildyard--I have this tumbler template and it makes it really easy to cut out of strips http://www.frommarti.com/tumbler_templates.shtml

    everose - your tumbler quilt is so much fun! I love seeing novelty prints used in that way.

    carriem - thanks for the reference to the tool. Easy cutting from strips works for me!

    Here is Batik Noodle Recipe 2. I really love the quilting on this one and am adding a 2nd photo for more detail. The mighty walking foot can do more than straight lines!

    Alright!!!!!!! Those noodle quilts look fun to make. No, I am not starting any right now, have class samples to get done so starting those.

    Love the tumbler quilt. I have a few of those cut up waiting to be worked on. Yes, UFOs. Here is an idea though, if I broke them up and made them into smaller ones instead of two larger ones, maybe I could get them done faster. LOL

    So nice to see everyone's completions! So many really beautiful quilts. My computer crashed and burned so I haven't been able to log in, boy have I missed the eye candy. One of those viruses that wipes out your computer then offers to fix it for you, for a price of course. Still working on my triple Irish chain. Almost done with the quilting, then just the binding. Yes, way behind schedule.

    Last but not least... Batik Noodle Recipe 3 which gives me a nice round number of finishes to share - #50 for 2014. My goal at the start of the year was to average one finish a week and I'm going to do it which feels great. I'll be more than ready to relinquish my UFO Queen status come 2014!!

    carriem... ty, that is just what I had in mind! It's perfect for cutting all sizes from strips.
    asl... I too love that quilting. It's simple but looks great and I really like that some of the lines cross!!! Great job!

    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.

    I started working on my UFOs, finally finished my lock and chase binding which I did by machine, I'm not much for hand stitching unless its going to be for competition. Ive been keeping all my UFOs in my car with its fabrics, so you can imagine what my car looks like, including passenger seat and my trunk!!! I also started the binding on a halloween quilt from mid 2012, I will finish it today I hope. Then I have a baby trip around the world, then there's 3 raffel fund raiser quilts (funds for sr. center and 2 churches) which I need to finish . . . I'll be so glad when I can see my carseats!!! I made a promise to myself to finish all my UFOs and not to start a new one. I think Linda is right about dust bunnies, lol, when I started on that Halloween one, I started to sneeze, lol.

    It's finished..... Yeah!!.... FINALLY!! I started this quilt 5 years ago by making one block. Then, it sat in a box waiting for me to collect enough oriental fabrics to finish it. And, I'm happy to say, I'm done. The pattern is called 'Kimonos' , a paper-pieced pattern by Betty Blais. The pattern is for a wall-hanging but I wanted a quilt so instead of 9 blocks, I made 20 and then added sashing and a piano border. I had to piece the back.... koi fish and batik ..... doing the happy dance now......

    This has to feel good nanna. Awesome finish!

    asimplelife, glad I handed that crown to you so you could meet your goals. You are doing great.

    Now UFO hauling in the car? That is a new one for me. That has got to be the sight. You should picture it for us so we can admire our status.

    Nanna--Pretty quilt. I too have some orientals I've been collecting. I've decided to use them for the "Spike your English" BOM (free) from quiltingonthesquare.com. There is a group on the QB that just started doing 2 a month....it is now a UFO of since I got behind. Oh well...one day!

    Nanna - your quilt is just stunning!
    Carrie - love your blocks. They are very intricate looking.

    Carriem, it is not a UFO yet, you are a WIP that is going a little slow. You are getting rid of those UFOs, that is why this fell behind right?

    Pretty Kimonos. It was well worth the wait.

    I've been hand-sewing the bias edges on a buffet runner made from 10-minute blocks. Now I need to sandwich it and quilt feathers in each section. I plan to get good at doing feathers.

    nanna-up-north - your kimono quilt is amazing! I have never seen anything like that...what fun you must have had picking out the fabrics for each block.

    My latest UFO is Cool Sparkles and it will be donated to Project Linus. I'm obsessing over HST quilts lately and think I'll be digging into my 5" charm bins next year to make lots more.
