    Carrie: Marvelous quilt. Yet another item on my bucket list. Would love to make use of some of the trims and "fancy' fabrics that I have been collecting. Each swatch would be a opportunity to be creative. From a distance some of the stitching actually looks like piping. Thanks for posting the closeup. Sigh.... so many great quilts, so little time.

    Ahhh.... my son would love Elsa. He's such a cat person. We have a monster dog that doesn't like cats. So, no kitties for me right now.

    A simple life, your ball quilt is adorable. I need to get a boy baby quilt done but just can't get started because I can't decide on a pattern for him.... but I love this one that you've finished. And the DP9 is so cute.... and I bet it didn't take long to finish.

    Missgigglewings, what a wonderful quilt to give to your mom.... lovely. That would be perfect for my SIL.... she says she doesn't want to make a quilt because she would get bored making lots of blocks that look alike. Yours has a few of this and a few of that... really nice.

    Carriem.... the crazy quilt is really sweet..... love crazy quilts, and the baby quilt is so colorful. More finished, Yeah!!

    The end of the year is getting closer..... don't know how many more will get finished. Will there be a 2014 UFO group? I think I'm going to need it again next year. I just have so much to do right now that I'm not going to get another one done in 2013.

    Hopping on the train... Been off QB for close to a year! But something about cold weather brings out the Quilter... But I want to get a bunch of UFOs finished before starting something new. (I'm also trying to bust my stash at the same time...) This one is OLD. OLD. OLD. It's a pattern from my very first quilting book --- Singer's Quilted Projects & Garments c1995. Dear me. That's how old this project is. The book was new when I got it. Made my first quilt out of that book (not counting the two I made when I was a teenager). I made a few blocks, then probably got bored and put it away. FOR ALMOST TWENTY YEARS. Well, she's done now, and going off to Project Linus....

    jillaine--I am sure that quilt will be appreciated. I like the quilting matching the heart blocks.

    Here is the crazy quilt held up and a few close-ups. (the green wall is *not* in my house...it is the gym wall where my kids have archery practice...this quilt is one of the coaches).

    Jillaine: Such a pretty quilt. Going to make someone feel very cared for.

    Carrie: Before you put the red boarder on the turquoise was the color that jumped out but now it is the red. That's one of the reasons I like boarders so much, they define the dominate color in the quilt.

    Oh Jillaine.... I love your quilt. And I agree with Carrie.... love the quilting in the border.... hearts that match are awesome.

    And your larger picture of your crazy quilt sure puts everything in prospective.... really nice.

    Emma I totally agree. Oftentimes the border or in some cases the binding pulls the whole quilt together.
    jillaine glad to see you are on this train. And yes we can't derail. We must continue into the future!

    Love the Christmas quilt Missgigglewings. I have those embroidery designs and just adore them. They looks so vintage. Congrats.

    Asimplife, wow, you are getting there girl!!!!! So proud of you on the work you have finished this year. i will be on another quest next year to get my UFOs and WIPs finished up. That will consume all my time there. We will all need to be sure we get a thread started for it again. If anything I will hostess it if need be. I am keeping an eye on it.
    Carriem, that crazy quilt is gorgeous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Need I say more, the rest have for sure.
    Jillaine, so miss you girl. Glad to see you are able to get back to doing some quilting after your sabatical. You have been busy. Wonderful finish.
    I have no ufos to report at moment. I have the binding on one to finish up and then that one will be finished from a year ago. I have been doing class samples and fresh projects for Christmas for kid's gifts that none of my ufos have been touched. Will have to get busy in January. I have my list started. Do you all have your list ready for next year?

    Well time for confession. I was really good this year, completing 6 of my 14 UFO's, starting no new quilts. Well along comes Bonnie Hunter's new mystery quilt with its beautiful bright colors and every one already in my stash. For the rest of the year I am seriously off task but plan on finishing those 8 UFO's in 2014.

    Hi Jillaine! Your quilting looks wonderful.

    I have a 2 UFO in 1 finish this week. I used a top made of rail fence blocks from a swap as backing and it worked out great. This quilt was professionally quilted and I finished sewing down the binding yesterday. Another oldie but goodie - I started this one back in 2003 and the swap top was from 2007. Christmas Fantasy and Christmas Rail Fence. I'm down to 28 UFOs on my list!

    I should add that I got too cold to finish taking pictures outside... neither picture turned out great - just too gloomy out!

    I think any and all progress is great and you finished some big ones Emma! I'm planning to work hard on UFOs through the winter and then dial it back to 1 a month and that will be wonderful... as long as I keep finishing what I start that is.

    Yes, I do. I really HAVE to finish that quilt on the frame that I'm hand quilting..... and the OBO that I started 5 years ago. I have that BOM from 6 years ago and my daughter's cathedral window that I started for her 25th wedding anniversary. Oh my, that was 2 years ago. Where does the time go?

    Then, I have some quilts that I've promised to people..... a baby quilt for my cousin's 1st grandbaby, 2 great nephew quilts (the last great nephews of 9), 1 great niece ( the last of 7) and I'm done..... Yeah!!!

    That's 8 quilts, total.... I can do that, can't I?? I think I can, I think I can..... I really have to try!

    That is a really great Christmas quilt, simple life. One of the first quilts I ever made was a Christmas quilt and I get it out every year to add a festive touch to the living room.... and it's so nice to cuddle under when the snow is flying around like yesterday. Do you still have a few to finish before the new year? I really love all the quilts you've posted this year..... I think I've said it before. You really have an eye for putting fabrics together. .... really nice.

    I'm thinking we should talk to admin about this becoming a permanent thread here on QB. LOL, seems like there will always be a need for this great cheering and support group!

    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.

    Wildyard: I so agree. Not only great people but beautiful quilts. I really don't understand why they ever became UFOs.

    this is my goal for 2014. My only resolution. I will put all my ufos together before I join one more swap. I have at least 4 quilts that need putting together sashing and such and well that is my least favorite part of quilt making.. so it goes in this nice bin I close the top and tada.. out of site out of mind.. not going to allow this to continue. I will make those quilts. (I hope) so yes please run this forum again for 2014. I will be right here with all of you. And I will do it. remind me ok?? lol

    Elisabrat: The various quilt alongs and mystery quilts are my downfalls too. I happen to know that you are an enabler since I am going to give in to your medallion quilt along you are organizing. Shame on you! LOL

    Agreed on keeping this one up. I need to finish up those UFOs that did not get done this year. I do have some unfortunately. If I put all the fabric collected for those WIPs, then I would be about caught up. These have been very pretty quilts that turned to UFOs. Sometimes I think we just do like Emma, get side tracked and see all the new pretty ones and feel we need to start them. That is mee. I see the next new thing and say wow, let me do that.
    For next year, I am only doing three projects that are new. That is my argyle bargello, a Linda Martin log cabin, and Graduation Memory Quilt for daughter. I have all the supplies for these, just have to do them now. Plus, they will be going into show so they will be special. If I can finish up those UFOs on my list, I will definitely have some show quilts from them.

    I am planning to start the 50 Fabulous Stars quilt and Dear Jane in 2014. Otherwise will just continue finishing up UFOs...need to make a list of what I have left.

    asimplelife--that's a fun Christmas quilt! Great idea to finish two tops as one quilt.

    Carrie: Uuuuuh just wanted to point out that those two quilts could be a year project all by themselves. Well we will be here to root you on. Quilters, always ready for a challenge.

    Emma--I am doing the 50 Stars as a BOW. DJ, I am not planning to make all the blocks. I want to make 2 smaller quilts...one using just the triangle blocks (there is a sample in the book I really like) and then enough of the square blocks for a large lap/twin size. I have fabric for the squares already, so that is what I will work on in 2014. Can't decide for sure what fabric I want for the triangles...that might wait until 2015!

    Those are my WIPs carriem. I have a bag with all the fabric needed for the DJ with the book and template. I am still on the fence about the 50 Stars. Will see how I want to progress on that one. Not a real PP. I have them all printed, just not done. I have a couple Jinny Beyer BOM quilts also for the last two years with the fabric all together and ready to go. Those are on my 2014 list of to dos.

    I am using one big center I already had made for my medallion quilt along it was started in memory of my mom good idea just got .. put into a box and stayed there. This is to push me into finishing it and using some of my already purchased fabrics. I buy but have no use for what I buy but one day kind of shopping. one yard of this one of that. never enough to .. finish anything. So medallion quilts round robin style will allow me to use up some of those fabrics plus a whole lot of my scraps. I even gave up my table runner swap for the beginning of the year to another member so I can get this stuff going. those four booms talk at me all day long.. get your tail over here! cut some sashing why don't you! I hide under my pillow, la la la cant hear you. However they keep talking so its time to just get them done. And those panels we all buy. I have three right now.. no plans for those. I so want to bring my stash down to a single shelf. Shop for what you need not just what impulsively hits you. Its a wish. Its my 2014 goal. I believe I can do it. I am pretty much a mule when I decide on something. so.. watch me I will win over my ufo's yet.

    A single shelf?!?
    Oh my goodness I dont think i could ever do that. Unless the shelf was 50 feet long. Lol!
    Of course not all of mine is just for quilting. I have a good bit of tapestry and drapery/ upholstery fabric as well as fleece, corduroy, and denim.

    Have to admit, had to go back and read about your "single shelf". I'm embarrassed to admit my stash resides in four six foot book shelves, two walk in closets with shelves on all walls and assorted plastic tubs for scraps.
