    Pretty pillow top Teen. I admire your appliqué.
    Like Teen I joined this board to prevent having my quilt tops become UFOs. I have enough of those in my knit & crochet world! So far this board has inspired me to stay with my quilts. I’ve started 5 & completed 3. I plan to work on my last 2 in the next few weeks. I start teaching summer camp on Monday so my quilting will suffer. Of the 2 quilts I’ve started, 1 is sandwiched & waiting for its turn on the sewing machine. I have the backing for the other one so it’ll be next! I’ve also started & completed 2 table runners & 3 mug rugs in between other projects. So thanks to all who post their completed projects here! I’ll post pictures when I can get back on my computer. Be clear-these finishes are NOT UFO finishes-but I'm preventing them from becoming UFOs.

    Very pretty pillow Teen.
    Conchalea, good job on keeping those projects at a level of finishing. Have fun with summer camp.

    I actually pulled out an UFO tonight and I was surprised I was at the sandwich stage. I don't finish many of my tops into quilts because I leave the 2 organizations where I volunteer finish them for donation. When I finished the top last year, I planned to give it to my great niece as a belated confirmation gift as it was made from my own fabric versus donated fabric. I even have backing chosen for it so I don't know what held me up from finishing it. LOL! (Probably because I wanted to try to quilt it on my machine and couldn't decide on a design.) It is from Judy's Mystery Train 7.

    Dance of the Dragonflies is finally done. It is a beautiful pattern. If I did it again, the black of the wings would be cut as a single grid. And each wing and body would be preappliqued before being attached to the background. Maybe it was the humidity, but those little fusible pieces were ironed down about 4 times, it was machine basted after that, and they still kept falling off. Glad it is finally done. Back to poor neglected En Provence. The lighting isn’t great; sun hasn’t gotten to the back porch yet.

    Great Dragonflies and Great job.. I have the pattern and fabric but no time to make it know, so it is on the bucket list for next year. Two wedding in one year takes a lot of time and doing my long arming too.

    I wondered back with list of May’s finished UFO’s and grand total. Continuing from where I left off. Let the drums roll and confetti fly and we all scream and yell.
    ‘Quiltermomma = 847, baby quilt, very pretty.
    Rryder = 12 more placemats #852
    rryder = 3 ufo’s trivets #852
    Kristakz = Jaffa Sasser quilt multicolored, #854
    Dedemac = train ride quilt = 867
    D.Henson = lap quilt #869/870
    Krisb = dance of the Dragonflies, #881

    this completes our May completed UFO’s, for a grand total of 43, 3 more than our goal this month. Contractions everyone for a great job.

    So far our June list is 0., ah, sad face. I know I need to start working on my UFO’s. I just need to finish with 2 swap projects 1st. Then ufo’s here I come. I’ve set up several to finish this month. Then I will have 3 more WIP’s to complete.

    Our goal this month is 30. Have fun working on all of your projects, UFO’s or WIP’s.

    I got "voluntold" to FMQ a queen-sized quilt for a friend and that takes a long time for me (after work and weekends). So there is no time to work on UFOs right now.

    Beautiful finish Krisb! Is it a UFO? Just asking since Happylab mentioned we didn’t have any June finishes yet...

    I’m working on another set of three trivets that will count as June UFOs.... but June is shaping up to be very busy, so don’t know if I’ll be able to get any other UFOs completed.

    June may be tough to get a UFO finish. I have lots to get done on customers. If I finish my daughters horse quilt, we can consider that. Hoping to finish up my rabbit trails.

    Sorry Krisb, I added your Drangonflies to the May totals. Please let me know if this should be on the June tallies, not May. I will correct the totally. I really do want to have accurate totals. Thank-you Rob for pointing this out to me.

    Congratulations May finishes!!!

    I donated the blocks I found in the pizza block to a church quilt group. I just couldn't get enthused to work with brown fabric. They loved them and probably already whipped out a donation quilt. So, officially, I have no UFO's. I am binding my SBS tomorrow....I finished the FMQ today....and, last week, started on a Jen Kingwell pattern. Lots of applique....and so not brown...lol! Think I'm going to save the Baltimore Album quilt for next year's big project.

    Happylab, I didn’t finish it until June.

    I wish I could get to my UFOs and finish them up. I am scheduling July to work on them when back from vacation. I am planning on finishing all my customer quilts before I leave so I can have a clean slate when I come home. Will be working on the row by row quilt to turn in while on vacation, I get to take the sewing machine with me. Maybe I will bring one of those ufo projects with me, hmmm, let me think, on that. I have 15 or so just to quilt. Yes, I am still dealing with the foot issues and it is not happy with me at all, but a girl has to do what a girl has to do. Now to get the rest of the garden planted since hubby gave me the ok to do so. Long story, but it works.

    That will feel good to get the customer quilting done before vacation. I hear ya.....love it when I get home to a clean slate or a different phase of a WIP. Good to have goals. Enjoy your vacation....My suggestion is to just take a fresh new project with you and leave UFO's behind. Vacations deserve exploring your creativity, too, with fresh ideas. You'll get to the UFO's eventually because you are focused to do it... Have a wonderful trip and hope the foot issue doesn't impede on you having a restful and fun trip...happy planting....

    Those blocks count as a finish since they are no longer on your UFO pile! So congratulations on a (May? June?) finish. Let Happylab know so she can add them to the total!

    Thanks Teen. I am going to do the row by row while on vacation in Montana. I have it all mapped out for our drive there. It may take us 10 hours to get to the cabin, but I will hit nine quilt shops on the way there. Should be lots of fun.
