Any monthly goals for February? I'm trimming and attaching binding to a big quilt that I know the hand-embroidered blocks were done while the lady waited for her husband to come out of work. He's been gone for over a decade now, So it's a big, ol' UFO that's been saying "I need to be finished now!"

Everyone did a fantastic job in Jan. My goal for Feb. is to finish up this pineapple quilt. I have 20 blocks completed, and have started on the centers for 10 more. I'll see if 30 blocks is enough for a decent size top. The blocks are done in Kona solids and white, haven't decided what I will do for borders and backing. This will be my biggest UFO, as far as goals are concerned. I usually do quick type projects that can be donated. This was something a friend and I started together, hers being finished months ago. Mine got stalled, mostly because of other quilts coming first. Then the mere thought of getting back to it just didn't seem exciting any more. So it is now having its turn and I am not particularly enjoying the process, but it will get done and done.

Judith, OKsewglad and Dedemac -- wonderful finishes all of you.

My goal for February is to finish the two mystery quilts I began last year. I'm not sure they are technically UFOs as one didn't end until a couple of weeks ago. In the UFO pile, I have four tops to quilt and three more in the works, but I'm not sure I'll have them done this month. We'll see....

Januaryís grand total for finishes was 37.

That was almost double the goal of 22. Well done, everyone!

February has 29 days this year. Letís leap into the month with a goal of 35, shall we?

if you donít know what to start with, take one that Is closest to being finished. Knock it out. If you have a bunch of tops, pick one that has red, pink, or hearts in it.

I will be working on two: a baby quilt (not a UFO) still not done for grandlamb due 2/28. And Bizz Buzz, a jelly roll quilt Iím making as a surprise for a dear friend to say ďI love you.Ē

Happy finishing! We are on a roll!

I found the binding material for my quilted UFO...not enough so I'm on a search mission. It shouldn't take me 29 days to find some

Grann of 6 - Just remember there is a way to chain piece anything, sometimes you have to maneuver things a litter more, you need to remove the first one after the third one is sewn and such. So just have everything stack up nicely and put on some fun music!

Judith - that was a awesome quilt.

My goal for February???? Get my sewing machine (127) back from the shop and FM DGS's quilt. Also do all the February 365 blocks that still need to get finished. With luck I can make a table topper out of some orphan block to count as a finish for this month.

My goal for Feb. is two UFOs. one will be finished tomorrow. The next one in the hopper is ready yo be sandwiched and quilted, but I’m having second thoughts on the way Ikd decided to present it (it’s an art quilt) so I may backburner it for a while and grab something else from the UFO pile.

I didn't get it done in January, but it's done now.!! Lap size, four patch Posey that was quilted three years ago. Finally got the binding on. Sorry no picture. Who do I send a pm to for the count? Thanks for all the encouragement to work on projects. Now I need to find the next one.

There's an art quilt started 2 yrs ago in memory of the Paradise wildfire. The ideas just weren't jelling and wanting to get onto something else, it got dropped to the foot of the design wall. While I've got interest in it and no batting to finish something else, it's going back on the desisgn wall to move forward. It may still take a couple years, but I'll make progress on it.
