    Thanks QM, Yes, I do dye/paint some of them. In this case, the silk and or polyester satins were dyed/painted using alcohol inks, fabric paints and regular artist's acrylics.

    Thanks, Martina. I'm lucky in that I have a local art gallery that seems to like these experimental pieces, which is a nice confidence booster. That plus a photographer friend who retired and had lots of fabric he'd used as props for his commercial photos--he gifted me with huge quantities of fabric that he didn't need anymore, so I ended up with lots of velvets, silk and polyester satins, poly/cotton and linen solids that I wouldn't have bought on my own--it was trying to figure out what to do with all those different kinds of fabrics that got me moving toward the more experimental end of things.

    Thanks to everyone for showing your finishes. Great work!

    anne2016: I have some dark blue that just grabs every little piece of lint and I even washed it first. Frustrating to say the least. Your quilt is very nice.

    I started the year with 2 UFO's and, thankfully, I haven't added to that number but they aren't finished yet either. Lol!

    I am giving myself until the end of June before my Bonnie Hunter En Provence is put in the UFO category. I haven't worked on it since the first part of January. Oops!

    Retiredreacher09, I'm still working on my top too. I figure in a month I will be done with the top. I really like the colors and design of this mystery this year. I'm just enjoying the process.

    As for UFO's this year, I'm still struggling on deciding what to work on. So far nothing is calling out it's their turn.

    Love all of the lovely finishes.

    So many great finishes lately. They're all beautiful!

    I love your bargello fabrics, QuilterMomma.

    Anne, that is a beautiful black and white quilt. Every time I see one, I think I should make one. But I never buy black fabric, LOL.

    Another UFO completed. I did most of this a year ago and kept putting off adding the feet and eyes. Glad it is finished - such an easy finish - don't know why I kept putting it aside. Name:  Cardinals on Line.JPG

    Adorable Sophie2. You put it off because up had to do the hand work of attaching the eyes and feet. That is my normal hangup on some projects, the handwork. They are adorable and love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Those birds are adorable. Yes, they needed eyes and feet.

    Hi Guys,

    This is my March finish, but I haven't been able to put it up as I have been hiding it because it is a gift for my daughters birthday tomorrow!

    I have counted them up and I have approximately 46 UFOs left is all. Decided to get my numbers in order so I know what I have left for the year. Hoping to get a couple of show quilts out of these. Now when I clean, I may find a few more, but thinking I have them all. These are projects I started and have abandoned because of "Quilter's QPAD". (Quilter Project Attention Deficit) I made it up. LOL

    Absolutely love the cardinals on the line! The kitty pillow is adorable! good work everyone with your finishes!

    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.

    Sophie2-- That's a fun quilt! I like the idea of using the cord for a wire!-- sometimes I'm having so much fun with a piece that I don't want to put an end to the fun by finishing it.

    Caroline- cute kitty!
