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:)

Per request (and I think the embroidery really needs to be seen!)

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.
