    Beautiful, Happylab. Especially love the scrappy squares quilt! Thank you for your 3 UFO finishes (including the name tag!) Toot, Toot and Congratulations.

I used the tutor from this board for the 2.5” log cabin. That’s all for this month. My next projects will be smaller projects.

    Well, hello everyone!!
    I've been really incommunicado this year, and have only a couple of UFO's completed (bad Leta!!)
    Anyway, I've been waiting for some special backing for a special project, and was wanting to start something new... but reminded myself that I had TONS of UFO's that needed to be finished...

    So, I grabbed one called "Jelly Roll Diamonds", and finished the top.
    I remembered WHY it was a UFO... the directions are less than stellar.
    Since it's loaded on my frame, I'm pretty much counting this as done... but here's a pic of the flimsy...

    Leta, congrats on the finish. That's so bright and cheerful.

    I have a UFO for December. This is my version of the Underground RR. It was started in 2014. I am thrilled to have it finished.

    Two wonderful finishes...way to go! Usually UFO's sit for a reason...glad you could see this one through, Leta.

    I have a URR that I started years ago...pieces are cut and ready to go...told myself I had to finish a couple of other projects before I finished it and here I am...those quilts aren't done either. Thanks for sharing your unique setting with us, Kassundra.

    Leta- beautiful colorful finish. Looking forward to seeing how you decided to quilt it.

    Kassaundra- I keep going back and looking at your Underground Railroad quilt. There is so much to see in it and to think about. Wonderful finish!

    I feel beyond pitiful - not a single finish. Not even an attempt at a finish. Well, at least I didn't start a new UFO. Guess that's something.

    It IS something to have avoided creating another UFO. . I'm still working on a couple of UFOs and it doesn't look like any of them will be done before the New Year. Oh, well.

    Janice, add one UFO finish for me...well not exactly a finish but the 2 or 3 UFO's I disassembled are no longer...so poof out the window for me! A one count is fine because I don't have anything to show for it.

    Topper1, you just did! Feel free to post your UFOs as you finish them. Generally speaking, this board is for UFOs that have been sitting around a while, somewhat forgotten or ignored, for a year or more. When you finish one, let us know. .

    Oksewglad, that's an an inspiration I needed! If we take something apart and decide to use it in a different quilt, that's not a UFO - it's a new start, right? I have several that were put aside because I didn't like the direction they were headed, but the blocks apart from the whole might not look so hopeless. So as soon as I can get a free hour or ten (next year, probably) they will have an appointment with the seam ripper.

    Rose, in my mind, getting it off the UFO pile counts, so if you decide to do something different with it, it is still a completion if it’s no longer in the UFO pile.

    I agree... whether that means you make patchwork teddy bears (or dogs or cats), or turn it into a pillow or pillow-case or a table-topper or...
    You get the idea.
    Even if you donate the UFO (in whatever state it's in) to your guild... or Goodwill... it's not in your pile anymore, therefore, it's no longer a UFO.

    That's my story and I'm sticking to it!!

    If they are no longer, that'll work for me. Congrats on lowering your UFO stack. Toot, Toot!

    FYI, oksewglad's "finish" brings us to 279 for the year. Can we get to 300??? Anyone have any small UFOs out there? All of mine are larger now so I don't have any in the running. Maybe some of you do...
