WMUTech: Wow!! That's what I call a Big Finish. Is there a category for the oldest/most challenging UFO of 2020? As per Marlon Brando, you could be "a contender!"
Thanks, QuiltMom2, you made me laugh in the middle of my reading. I have been quilting all day and taking a break at the moment. Making serious on a second UFO. This one is machine only!

Bugaroo! Thanks for the info on your bedroom set. It is awesome! I really like your idea of the quilt covering your washer and dryer.

I just put some fabric pieces over bookshelves in my office and it makes the room look neater but I may need to make some quilts for over them instead.

UFO done. I completed this top in the summer. It was a handwork project I did while my stuff was packed up. It went to California and back with me 3 times...lol.. Letting Krisb know of the completion. Finally, feel like I'm contributing to our challenge. Yea!

Nice, Teen! I like the soft colors you used for this one and hearing about its multiple trips between California and your new home. We’ll make a UFOer out of you yet

Smile embroidered 50 state quilt

Omgosh!!! That is wonderful! So beautiful and the quilting is amazing. This is the same embroidery pattern my MIL did and I love it. I have such great memories of seeing her work on this. It's phenomenal, Quiltmom...

Teen, that's a beautiful finish. I love your use of neutrals there as the flower backgrounds.

QuiltMom2, congratulations on a wonderful accomplishment!

Great finishes! I'm happy to add one to the list-my red & pink throw-size quilt. The red & pink came from donated fabric. I used stash off-white for the sashing & backing, more stash for the 2 borders on top & bottom, and finally WOW stash for the binding. I consider it a UFO because It has languished since New Year's, when I laid it on my dining room to trim and measure it for the binding. I got the binding made, but had to move a lot of stuff off the quilt in order to sew on it. That took much longer than it should have... At any rate, it's in the dryer now. If I can manage to upload a picture, I'll post that later.

Congratulations to Teen and Conchalea on more finishes! Their 2 bring us to 13 for February. I hope to add 3 more, now that the Frolic top is essentially completed.
