    Could not have turned out any nicer than what you did.. Just charming

    I was telling "The man" earlier about this thread, and one of the posts about "please finish some of them before you die" and he said "Don't you start collecting them!" I just said OK & let him go, while I counted in my head how many unfinished projects I have...

    Last night I stayed up until 03am and went through several containers of UFO's and quilt tops that need to be quilted. I found several which I had completely forgotten about. I plan to finish 3 of them by the end of the year. 2 of theses were just cut out, I never even sewed a stitch. One of them is a sewn top, just needs to be quilted, which is a batik scrappy mystery quilt, I followed on line 2 years ago. Another is a wall hanging, in my favorite colors. I decided to take 2 of theses on a retreat later this month and work on them. Hopefully I will have the tops done by the end of the retreat. I'll keep you posted and post pic later in the week as I start working on them. Bye. And happy sewing.

    I almost feel like a stranger here because I have been so busy I haven't had time to read or post much...but I really do think I will get one more UFO finished this month. Hope to post a picture sometime after the 19th. It is a baby quilt and will be headed off to Germany for new baby girl who is due to arrive in Nov. so I should have plenty of time, yet. I started this in 2011 and had no plans for it other than seeing a picture in a magazine and thinking...I can make that!" Well, I did...just didn't finish it. LOL. So it has come in handy to have. Look for a picture soon. Love everyone else's finished projects. So great to have all of the newest folk here too.

    SandyinZ4, I know what you mean! I am so far behind in getting things done. Now my machine is broken and I am going to have to replace it. The presser bar is bent and can't be repaired for less than the machine is worth.
    I am using my old Singer in the meantime and plugging along, but just not making much progress. I do have two tops done and ready to be layered and quilted. Only one is a UFO, the other is a comfort quilt.

    Don't be discouraged tho, one day before we know it, TA DAAAAA, we will have a finish to post!!! It's happened before and it will happen again. Smiles and huggggggs!

    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.

    Thanks Linda for the encouragement. What a bummer about your sewing machine. Sending good vibes that someone near you will have the perfect one for sale and you can get it and get back to sewing lots! Guess what! I caught up on all my chores today so finished sewing on the binding to the aforementioned quilt that will be going off to Germany soon. Ta Da! So sharing a picture. It is 48 " x 48". It looks hard but is mostly HST and easy peasy if you have a place to lay it out. I did it in 4 sections and then sewed then together.

    Sandy: What a beautiful bright quilt, I foresee she will love it and drag it along as her binky.

    Beautiful Celtic Solstice, jwardknits. I just finished mine today too. I'll try to get a picture in the daylight tomorrow and post it here. (Yah, finally a UFO to report as done)

    J: Great finishes. This last week I sandwiched my Celtic Solstice, I know how labor intensive that one is. What did you back the Denim quilt with? Congrats on finishing two more UFOs.

    Pretty quilts posted over the weekend!! I will have a finished quilt by the end of the month. I need it for an early September birthday so it *has* to be done.

    Done! I finished my celtic solstice over the weekend, and put the binding on last night. Machine bound, but you do what you gotta do
    I made a small version - about 1/2 the blocks. And I changed up the border, mostly to avoid making yet more flying geese.

    This one will get added to the charity pile, which I really need to find some time to drop off.

    Krista, I love your quilt. That had to be one of the hardest quilts I have done. Your colors are beautiful.

    I use a Snuggle flannel and flannel shirting for my backing. I layer them together and attach. I find jean quilts so heavy and it seems like you can feel each seam but the combo of the flannels help. I use a black and white shirting flannel on this one.

    The Celtic Solstice quilts are just beautiful. That's one I'll never be brave enough to do. Wonderful work jward and Krista!

    J: Thanks for the peek at the back. Never thought about those bulky seams, flannel seems like a good alternative. Michelle: LOL, I think your right, if you don't work on it no quilt is fast. You really get a lot of bang with that pattern because of the colors. Congrats on the finish!

    Love the Celtic Solstice finished ones. Someday (sigh) mine will be done. Also, the denim quilt looks great. I have one of those started too. But, like all of you, I keep plugging away on that ufo pile. Love seeing all the pictures of finishes!
