Lovely finishes so far! Thanks for counting for us zozee!

My sewing time is very small nowadays, with just a little bit here and there. No more hours sitting and sewing away. I can't believe I used to put in about 30 hours a week sewing as a teenager!

I am just a lurker and really enjoy reading all of the UFO accomplishments. My problem is that I see a new quilt pattern or beautiful quilt on this board and I get everything gathered to make it and then I fizzle out and another UFO has been established!!! I think I should just stay off the computer and sew, sew, sew. Anyhow-love to look at all of the pictures of quilts and other projects so keep them coming and I will keep lurking and enjoying.

Not a finish, but at the half way mark of this giant UFO! My design wall is too small so I'm layering them up. I'm not sure if I'm going to include the yellow and red block on the right. It's a scrappy quilt, so even though the contrast isn't there, I think it'll get lost nicely in the big picture. Thoughts?

First time posting a picture with this new update, so hopefully it works.

Hey NZ- That's going to be a neat quilt. On the Yellow and Red block- in the full sized photo it looks like it will be fine, but when I look at it in the thumbnail, it looks as though you might lose the effect of the secondary pattern where ever you put the yellow and red block because of the lack of contrast, not sure it that would be the case or not. If you think the secondary pattern will get lost, then you might want to save that block and use it for a matching pillow if you don't need it for the size quilt you are making.

Thanks, Rob. A matching pillow does sound like a better use for that block.

Very pretty scrappy, NZ! I really like this block. And, I agree with Rob. Thumbnail size pictures comes in handy to spot this stuff. Good eye, Rob!

I completely forgot a daisy quilt I started before moving using that FQ bundle. I discovered it when I was going through project containers. All the blocks are completed...just need to do the plain white blocks in between. I even had enough foresight to place border and backing fabrics in container. So....this 1 year old UFO will be done this weekend. yea!

Default welcome Jordan

Jordan, I started out as a lurker in my UFO beginning. I soon realized I was a UFO'er and completed a thing or two. I just can't get the hang of posting pix

NZquilter, it looks great, that's what I want to learn is "how to post pix' keep going on your project and it will all come together

Teen, I know you will have that finished in no time cause you don't like UFO's

Have a happy sew day everyone

Good day everyone. I complete my 2 Black batik twin quilts. Both were started over 5 - 10 years ago. the 1st one was from a Batik block swap from this board. The 2nd one, a multicolored batik with black fabrics in a diamond rectangle shape. At the time I really like black, but have since out grown the black background. I plan to give them away to my G-Nephews. Now on to my Halloween UFO. I will post pics when I can figure out how to post pics.

Well, I finished my friend's quilts and got them in the mail to her, so now I will get back to UFO's. The one I am currently working on, I am discovering I do not care for it, don't care for the assembly methiod,or pretty much any part of it. So it is going to be a bear to finish up. I have 2 sets done, four blocks in each set, and I believe 40 sets, so it is very slow going. It may get stuffed in a bag with all the directions and sent off to Goodwill. I see no point in working on something I hate when I have plenty of projects that I like. We are supposed to get a smattering of snow this weekend so sewing should be a good option.
