    Congrats to everyone on the wonderful finishes and thanks for sharing!

    I started the year with 2 and still have 2. Lol!

    I really need to concentrate on finishing them this summer!

    Thanks everyone.

    connie- not to worry, you still have plenty of time to get to them.

    Oksewglad- Gram passes are a good thing. Have fun!

    How cool is that finish, Rob!!

    I love the "interrupted" border - I would never have thought to do that, and even if I had, I would not have thought that it would look as good as yours does. As always, you challenge my ways of thinking about quilting.

    I ordered some new threads that I will be "testing" before I use them in the UFO Lone Star. I also need to order some black batting. And some kind of high loft batting, as I will double-batt it to emphasize the quilting. One of the ladies in my longarm group recommended Superior Threads "Magnifico", as it has enough shimmer and shine that it almost acts like the metallic threads. I've marked my main registration lines on the "sample", and will use leftover batting, so I can't wait for the threads to get here. With the encouragement of everyone here, as well as my LA group, I'm hoping this will be an awesome entry for MQX next spring. Of course I'll post here. It will get a UFO out of my way, and perhaps some "kudos" as well.

    Congratulations, Rob, on another UFO finish. It's a good feeling to finish one that caused frustration. Now you never have to deal with it again, at least not in an unpleasant way. Toot, Toot![QUOTE=rryder;7824496]Hey all, I have a UFO finish for May. This one was started in either late 2015 or early 2016, and is all from scraps. After I got 4 blocks put together I realized I didn't have enough of one of the fabrics in my scrap pile. My design wall at the time was too small to lay it out and figure out what to do to get around the not enough fabric problem, and I got frustrated with it. So it got thrown on the UFO pile and completely forgotten about until last week when I was looking for a UFO other than the 2 that were supposed to be my next finishes LOL.

    It hasn't been the quiet week I'd hoped for so finding quilting time is difficult. I've got 7 or 8 of my 12 blocks quilted but I'm going to redo one I'm displeased with. It's the block itself, not the quilting. Glad some of you are busy working away and others, I don't blame you a bit for enjoying nice weather or "gram" time! Laundry calls. Enjoy the rest of your week.

    Totally fabulous Rob. I love that you used the blocks on the backing. That is so neat. Great job and bet that feels refreshing to have another finish.

    While I was waiting to go to my dr appointment yesterday am, I was doing some embroidery on the machine so thought to do some sewing. Here are some ufos that sat there for about a year and half, squirrels left behind. LOl I cut them up, but did not get them finished for presents. Silly me. Well I am ahead of the game now aren't I.

    QMomma... great finishes. I have bookmarked your post because I want to try the Snowman as a table topper.
    Also like the purses. Love the use of bl/lgt/gray fabrics. Is there a pattern for the bag?
    Always be kind.

    The bags were from a Youtube video of Missouri Star Quilt Company, Jenny Doan.
    Yeah, I am still procrastinating from doing that scrap star quilt. It is starting to yell at me just a bit more. Almost done with the pile of UFOs that was in the way.

    QM- love the snowman and those bags! I've made a couple of bags using Jenny's tutorial, but never thought to do any quilting other than vertical lines. I particularly like the one with the crosshatching-- gives it a Japanese look.

    Adorable Santa and the bags are very nice, too. I'll look up the tut as well. Thanks for letting us know where you found it. Congrats on your three UFO finishes and Toot, Toot QM!
