I thought I had cleared my UFO stack, but while packing fabric I came across some left over blocks from a quilt i made last year (I think). So I've put those blocks & coordinating fabric together & plan to make pillow cases to go with the quilt. Those will be for February at the earliest, since my after-school classes start today. The classes themselves are only an hour long, but with travel & set up time, they actually take 2.5 hours each afternoon. The first week usually takes longer, with earlier arrival time in order to get all kids rounded up & in the right place.

Good morning everyone, thanks Krisb, for the link. Congratulations Belfrybat on that beautiful finish. I am a little slow with technology but I'll get it figured out. I don't know of anyone that doesn't have at least one lurking around unfinished some where. We still creating new challenges and they have to have a time out

Happy sewing day everyone

NZquilter, I am sitting with you in the caboose hand quilting like crazy and my UFO is moving ahead. Body of the quilt finished and now I have begun hand quilting the border. Picture to come later.

Belfreybat, absolutely love, love, love the border on your quilt for the choir leader. Perrrrfect!

I am so impressed with the number of finishes. We certain do respond to a little positive peer pressure. Now, I am wondering who has cleared their pile of UFOs from our group? Tee-Hee-Hee I am quite convinced that this group is a lifelong commitment. We may diminish the pile but it will never disappear altogether. :o My goal for February is two finishes! I think it can be done.


You two aren't the only ones holding down stools in the caboose. :o

I have been looking at three tops for the past two weeks. We still have 5 days, lets see what can be done. If only my Inspector (from my avatar) wasn't soooo needy at the moment. Even after a couple of hours at the dog park, he will still come under the sewing table and park directly on the presser foot. :shock:

Aww... that's the way it should be! Your quilting will always be there, but those little ones won't keep. :o

Wasn't sure if I could add to your number of finished UFO's. But, it turns out, I had 5 ready for quilting at the end of 2019. This is my oldest UFO. It was started in February of 2013. I finished the last stitch on the binding today Jan. 27, 2020.

This is another old UFO. I started it July 2017. The end of the Fall Block Swap. And, this is the wonderful quilt my swappers contributed to. I sewed the last stitch in the binding January 24, 2020. I splurged on the plaid backing fabric. Of course, purchased with a coupon.

Great finishes ladies. I have enjoy seeing all your finishes. They are all lovely. It's like a free quilt show here on the board.

I racked up a few UFO's with kits when my sewing machine died a few years ago. The 1/4 just wasn't the same. I will have to take some of those apart and start again with the machine I have now.

But, I have one more quilt that I need to finish (of the 5, afore mentioned, 2 more still need to be quilted) the binding on. It is from a swap here on the QB.

I seem to always stall at the borders. So far, I've been able to match some fabric to old UFO's to finish borders. So, I have been working on finishing my UFO's here and there.
