    Yayyyyy, I'm getting to post my second finish for this month!!! A real rarity for me. This was already a flimsy so all I had to do was the backing, layering, quilting and binding. I'm thrilled to post a finished quilt: Seasonal Greens made for my DGS. The pattern is Scattered D9P, I started it early in Dec. 2011. Put it aside, worked on it again off and on thru 2012, put it aside, and now it is finished!!! Woohooooo!!Name:  Seasonal Greens finished.jpg

    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.

    Scattered (or scrambled) D9P is where you go thru the usual steps of making a D9P, except after you cut the 9P into quarters, you toss all the parts into a box or bag and mix them together. Then you just select 4 at random and sew them together into a block. After sewing all the quarters back into blocks, then toss the blocks together and again select at random to sew them together into the rows for your quilt.
    This is great for very scrappy, which mine pretty much is. The only thing I kept consistent is that I used the same fabric for the center square in all the 9P. That is the pale gray that you see throughout the quilt.

    I am working on a large quilt I started last year. It is paper pieced and is quite fun to do. I am not finished with it yet but if I post about it maybe it will inspire me to go ahead and finish it.

    I love your color choices for your scattered DP9. It looks great. Thanks for explaining what you meant by "scattered". I definitely have to try this one. Great finish. Woot Woot!!!

    I did cheat a little and after I drew them all out and put them on the design wall. Then I took a photo and moved a few around to avoid too many duplcates being togeter and to make sure it looked balanced to me. I did that before I sewed the quarters together and again before sewing the larger squares together.

    A little tinkle for me please. It may not sound like much, but for me - who has no dressmaking skills whatsoever - it's an accomplishment, albeit not quilt-related.
    This morning I cut the feet off one of DGS fleecy sleep suits my daughter gave me before Christmas and hemmed them with an over edge foot (who's been reading the manual then?)
    Lang may yer lum reek. (I'm a knitter - hence - 'Knit-ette'. Confuses a lot of people!)

    This is my 2nd almost completed UFO of the year. It is the result of a class taken last fall with Debby Kratovil. Top is completed; DD will quilt it on her recently acquired midarm. It will be a practice quilt for her. I don't FMQ and don't want to spend too much time thinking about how to quilt and/or having to mark it. I just want this finished. I have too many UFOs to spend much time on this one. It will be donated to Project Linus. Love the colors.

    Ok, this sounds like thread I need to be on! I have... Oh... at least 13 different UFOs that are in various stages of progress. Some are cut, but no sewing done, some have some sewing done, others are flimsies that need borders &/or quilted... All of these are a minimum of 6 months old, some are 10 years! Considering I've (only) been quilting for 11 years, that's saying something.

    That doesn't even count the ones that I've purchased fabric for, but haven't gone further than that! Or the UFO that my grandmother passed on to me 12 years ago, that she hadn't touched since before I was born! EEP!

    Thank you! Who knew the manual had such useful information?
    In fact, I'm beginning to scare myself.......... This morning I repaired a bag strap for my DD's friend using the instructions "Sewing from the edge of thick fabric" and "locking the foot in horizontal position to avoid slipping". It worked!
    (I have made her promise to never, ever, ever volunteer me again as a 'Thank you'. I might be quilter one day, ain't ever gonna be that dressmaker, lol.))

    Ding Ding! Kninette!!! One of my non quilting UFOs was a pair of fleece pajama bottoms that I got from Ocean State Job Lot - they were too tight in the rear so I opened out the side seams and inserted a fleece panel. I had to take apart the waistband which was a pain, but they are done and they fit! So good for you!!!!!!

    Oh I like that one. I am planning on using a 60 degree braid for some of my donation quilts. I really like how that came out!

    The pattern is Star Flower Wreath by Chickadee Charms Design Company. I started this UFO in 1997 and finished piecing it last spring...when I took credit for finishing it (shhhh, don't tell anyone). Charisma did the amazing quilting and I sewed the last stitch of the binding on yesterday.
