    A "single shelf"? I'm like Emma, I have a hug room stuffed. We are moving in a little over a year, so I really need to get a handle on the fabric - if I donate the UFO's to someone who does them for charity, does that count as doing them? Maybe not. But I sure will feel good about not having to pack them up and transport them across country.

    Everose: Of course that counts, you may not be finished but your finished, if you know what I mean. I moved a couple of years ago and was horrified at how many boxes of fabric I packed. The worst is how heavy they are. My advise is stick to medium size boxes, the weight splits the larger ones. I've solved the problem, I just won't move again.

    Beautiful finishes ladies, we are coming down to the end of the year and I'm DETERMINED for finish a couple more quilts before then. But rather than sewing I'm enjoying the photos of all your great work. My new saying? PROCRASTINATE NOW!

    Will not be finishing any UFOs this year. I will though, however, be working hard next year for the last of the UFOs and do some of my WIPs. My focus will be more on how I finish them so I can make them into the show quilts they are. Looking forward to following our thread for 2014.
    Asimplelife, you did awesome on busting down that stack of UFOs this year, congrats.
    Emma, the projects you finished this year as so beautiful and wonderfully made. You pat yourself on the back.
    If you go back thru the year on the projects we finished. I think we all need an extra special CONGRATS!!!!! Some of those were old and some not so much, but they are finished quilts.

    Yayyyyyy!!! I finished my DGD's plaid quilt! I am calling it Plaid Patches. I posted the photos on the Pictures thread, so here is the link. http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...ml#post6468000

    I started collecting and cutting the fabric for this quilt at this time last year. It got set aside for some other projects, plus both new knees. I'm so happy I still got it in under the wire this year!

    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.

    Dresden Plate quilts made from Poinsettia and Snowflake swap

    Here are pictures of lap sized quilts with blocks made from this swap, Dresden Plate Poinsettia and Snowflake swap.

    The Poinsettia quilt is hung up in the living room for the Christmas season. DH really likes it as does one of my adult DDs that stopped by today.

    The snowflake quilt was gifted to my 15 year old daughter who came to live with us at the age of 11 yrs. She really liked the snowflake blocks. What is interesting is that we do not have snow here and half of her life she lived on a tropical island. She is always cold! These are snowflakes she can enjoy and that keep her warm. She loves the quilt and has been using it since she received it last night.

    The fabrics used to complete the quilt are pretty old but I really liked the snowman print I used on the back of the snowflake quilt.

    I did some dense quilting but putting the top together was a breeze of course since all the blocks were already made. I would love to see what others make with the swap blocks. I still have to put the Civil War blocks from one of Deb Watkins swaps together also. That one looks promising and I did use two blocks already in making a really cute top that is now on the frame.

    Thank you all for your kind words and responses.

    I have two more quilts, big ones, I got done but I need pictures.

    I feel really motivated to get more UFOs done come 2014. I hope I stay focused.

    This has probably been asked and answered but I didn't see: Will there be a UFO 2014 thread? I hope so.

    Yesterday I decided to address the state of my UFOs and when I stood in front of the leaning tower of tops, I became totally overwhelmed. Instead of just picking one, I slunk into my sewing room and added a final border to a donation quilt top. In essence, I added another UFO to the pile. I need to really pay attention to my poor finished tops next year. Not a resolution - just a fact.

    One more to check off. It's a community service quilt for my guild. We take them to local hospitals for the children's wards. It started from leftover squares but then I found the center to be too small and boring. So I added the mitered stripe from my stash and really like the way it ended. It's about 35" square. Used the back turned forward for the binding (something I just learned in the Craftsy "Finishing" class) and used a serpentine stitch to do the quilting.

Size:  345.0 KBM&M (my addiction!) table topper. The fabric was given to me by a friend.

    So, my UFO status - I started with 65 UFOs, and I think I'm down to 45. Nothing like ASimpleLife accomplished, but still!
    Great job on the finishes, everyone! Who is starting the thread for 2014? I have to say I have loved the SpongeBob quilt being the first post for 2013 - I always know I'm in the right place. I'm having company for a few days, but am looking forward to checking in at the end of the week.
    HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE!

    Nice to see some more finishes. I wish I had more finishes than starts this year. Hopefully next year will be more positive! Yes we need a UFO challenge for 2014.

    Michelle and Martina, some nice quilts finished. This thread really helps me in digging up those UFOs and getting them done. I am glad it is continuing.

    I really dislike UFO designs on quilts. It seems as if some outer planetry object is coming to you. It makes me afraid.
