    A little tinkle please. The bag on the left is one I did when I was just learning to quilt a couple of years ago and is my first attempt at FMQ.
    The one on the right, showing the other side of the bag, is one I finished for DD yesterday (bought the panel just after I did the first one ). Patience is a virtue, right?

    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.

    Ditto....gorgeous bags! I think your quilting looks great. You deserve more than a little tinkle. http://soundbible.com/1746-Ship-Bell.html Wish I could figure out how to put in a wav file so no link is necessary.

    Ufo #3 & #4!

    Which brings my UFO Collection down to 74 from 94 as of 10/1/2012! Gotta keep on quilting...

    The pattern for Shabby Heart is called "Heather's Lacy Heart" from the book "Quick & Easy Romantic Quilts". It measures 53" by 57" and is made from Robyn Pandolph fabrics except for the heart/binding fabric which is from Blackbird Designs. I started this quilt in 2007 and it was professionally quilted by Nancy Clayburn of Quilting by Design last month.

    Sports Kid was pieced in 2008 using the free Warm Wishes pattern from Quiltmaker.com. It will be donated to Project Linus.

    @ asimplelife - gorgeous quilts. Love the colours in your heart quilt. You are joking about having 74 UFOs aren't you?

    Nope, but I wish I was! lol

    I used to be so intimidated by sandwiching, quilting and binding so I just kept doing what I loved - piecing! In the fall of 2009 I fell and badly broke my right leg and during my recovery I totally lost my crafty mojo... it wasn't until this fall that I turned on my machine. Crazy huh?

    Now I'm determined to turn things around and my goal is to finish a UFO a week in 2014. And learn how to FMQ (I've learned to really enjoy walking foot quilting).

    The good news is I have plenty of projects to write about! And I hang out in this thread.

    It's beautiful! Way to go Fraew!

    Done! I made this top 3 years ago, for my son. Then it sat, and sat. I put it on my "UFO list" in both 2011 and 2012, and found an excuse each time it came up, to avoid it. I didn't want to mess it up, and couldn't bear the though of stuffing it through my regular machine.

    When I got a long arm last July I decided it was time to do it - but of course I needed to get better at my skills first, because I do love this quilt (that was November's excuse, when this quilt came up for the UFO challenge). Finally, this month I said Enough! I made myself load it on the long arm before anything else, so that I had to finish it. And here it is! I lost a fight with my rotary cutter in the process, but my finger is healing and the quilt is complete and now resides on my son's bed. A whole year before he goes away to school

    And a closeup of some of my quilting. I did stitch in the ditch around the stars, after this picture was taken.

    Krista that is GORGEOUS! Wow! I love that pattern, it has almost an optical illusion effect with the black triangles doesn't it? Your quilting is beautiful too!

    And thank you for the encouragement QuilterMomma! Each UFO off the list makes me smile and brightens my day...

    I have decided to count writing the pattern for my Focus Point quilt as one of my UFOs. I have been putting it off since last fall. This will be my first time actually writing a pattern since I crapped out on writting the last pattern I designed that people wanted.

    Just finished my Project Linus Quilt. This has been hanging around in semi-complete form since Thanksgiving. Finally got the binding on.
