    Well, Since I did not make my goal for 2018, I decided to clean up/straighten up my sewing room and bag all my UFO's in zip lock bags and put them in one bin. The bin is full. Some just need sandwiching/quilting while others are just in need of more dedication and persistence. Worked on two UFO's today but neither will be finished this year. And yes, Happy New Year's to all and see you in 2019, right here on the QB.

    Finally, The t-shirt UFO is done!

    Hey all, I finally managed to finish my cousin's t-shirt quilt. I stabilized the t-shirts and deconstructed them several years ago, and then it sat and sat and sat until I pulled it out of the UFO pile in Sept. My goal was to get it done for her 75th birthday which was the end of Oct. but, obviously that didn't happen. I did show her the partially pieced top on her birthday so she would have something to look forward to LOL! It's lap size- 72" x 54".

    We were beginning to think this was just a story you were telling us Rob...ha ha...guess you got it done! Love the juxtaposition of colors. Looks like you had great subject matter to work with!

    Well, I dove into the UFO bin and finished two tops this week. Then went diving into the the stash and found backing for one. Today is my guild work day and I will be sandwiching my two UFOs as well as the guild exchange block quilt for 2018 giving me plenty of binding and hand sewing to do in the next few weeks. So, watch for some actual finishes from me in January! I just love Christmas Vacation weeks. I can forget my teaching long enough to have some fun at the sewing machine.

    One more for 2018, I'm going to count it even though it still needs borders. The majority is finished. It was my oldest UFO, so old the fabric was from Walmart. Fortunately, I have plenty of fabric for borders. Name:  20181229_082827_resized.jpg

    Battle Axe...great 2 color quilt.

    FYI, I used to be able to buy some nice fabric flat folds from Walmart (think South Seas Imports for one). At the time for just $2 a yard..I'd often buy 6 yards at a time...makes a backing for a 80 x 100 quilt. I'm still using those fabrics as such. Okay now you know why I'm on the Fabric moratorium thread!

    Here is the picture of my daughter's UFO quilt I finished on Christmas morning. It's queen-sized & she said it's so warm she's had to kick it off a few nights. That's unusual for her because she's so cold-natured. She's very pleased with it.

    Battleaxe, lovely quilt top. I love your colors.

    Conchalea, very nice finish. I like the colors and pattern.

    FYI: the 2019 thread is now open. So please post all future comments on that thread. I’m sending message to close the 2018 thread (this one). Thank -you everyone for supporting this thread this year. I really like this thread. Such lovely completed projects from everyone. I love them all. Until next year, happy sewing and quilting.

    I had some finishes, but did not get on here to report. I am sorry. I finished Elf on Shelf, then had enough for another quilt, my blue and white block swap I won, my Cotton and Steel Irish chain, two Thanksgiving wall hangings, and two snowman table runners. I have pics, but they are on phone which is not behaving itself for uploads. Oh gosh, technology 1, Beth 0.

    Thanks, Teen. My daughter put together the long blocks then put it aside for a while. I joined the long blocks into panels & quilted & bound it. It’s pretty heavy.
