Welcome entangled! Good for you on getting 3 quilts done. Keep up the good work!

Entangled, it's never too late to join the UFO group. They can show up at any time. This board is used by some people to prevent new UFOs from appearing. I'm glad you've joined us.

Welcome to the UFO train Entangled, you have found the right spot, we look forward to seeing what ever you got to show us.

I just got word that a new great grand is due in 20 days, I guess 'GiGi' is the last to know and I handle the needle. I got an UFO baby bid that I started hand embroidering about seven or eight years ago that just might get gifted to them, since I'm the last to be informed
I guess those aprons are back on the back burner again, twenty days is not a lot of time

Stay safe everyone, welcome again Entangled

And you know what? I'm down to 14 UFOs now. One of those three took a long time to finish. I'm still not faithful to one project; when I'm in the mood to piece, I piece, albeit on one of the already in-progress quilts. I want to get down to 8 UFOs before I start anything new. It's so hard to resist!

(I'll reacquaint myself with how to include pictures later. It's late.)

Three Cheers for you Entangled! You have a plan and we will be here to help you stick to it. I suspect that everyone on this thread has a plan that fits there own situation. I aim for one a month, others dive in and do three or four in a row. Jumping from UFO to UFO will feed your need to create or cut or stitch but still work on whittling down your pile. Whoo Hoo!. Post photos as you finish or as you make progress. We love to see each others work.

I just finished a top with 48 blocks of 72 from my Summer Moon UFO. I made the insides of the blocks during our Friday classes last summer at a LQS. Then it took me a while to frame them according to the pattern. I knew I wouldnít be happy with all of the light backgrounds when I was making it so I decided to use sashing instead of setting the blocks side by side. Itís 69.5Ē by 80Ē and will go into the church donation pile for our group to finish some day (or maybe just me if we canít meet soon).

Welcome, entangled. We look forward to pictures of your UFO projects.

Retiredteacher, I am loving that sampler, such a great job, but may I ask??? What happens to the remainder of the 72 blocks???

Stay safe everyone

Thanks so much for the warm welcome, everyone! My next UFO target is a lap blanket that I started ~17 years ago. Bear paw blocks on point. I'm handquilting this one, but it's taking forever because ... I don't work on it often. Hm. I need to incentive this somehow.

Beautiful piecing, retiredteacher09!!! Someone is going to love getting that quilt one day.

Iím stiiiiiill working on the big butterfly. It is a formidable adversary-but I refuse to be defeated by a lepidoptera...stay tuned.
