I am thrilled to have a new member to our group of "Finishers". Oh, it feels so good to check on off the list.! You can almost hear us all cheering when any one finished one no matter how big or how small! A finish is a finish.https://cdn.quiltingboard.com/images/smilies/smile.png

I finally am finishing up a quilt my mother-in-law made in the 70's. Has been setting on a shelf in my closet for at least 10 yrs.
Feels good to finally finish it, I have a grandson waiting for it.

Bookworm- Pick one and finish it. It sounds to me like that Child's Applique is closest but ... You can do it!

Bookworm, the hardest part is getting started. I've read that some people make a list of their UFOs & either work on the one closest to completion first, or number the UFOs & put the numbers on slips of paper. Pull out a paper slip & work on the quilt first. When you finish one, post it here, & repeat your process! You will see progress.

Proudly announcing a finish :) I will post the pictures tomorrow or so. You may remember my kendo quilt? This finish will go to the little sister od the kendo boy. I am happy I still made it in time to count as April finish.

Hey all,
I finished this UFO last night. Yay! It spent a number of years in the UFO stack because I didn't have enough of the fabric that I wanted to use to make the border. Then, last month I found it in one of the skinny bolts on Quilt in a Day's website and pulled it off the pile. Of course, I didn't have enough fabric to do the binding so decided to stitch two together and bind it that way. It is a design by Peggy Martin in her Bluprint class called Quick Strip Paper piecing. I used some specialty quilting rulers for the motif's around the stars that are surrounded with red. Also used my handy dandy straight ruler for the quilting in the white areas, a couple of different circle rulers for the small circles and the specialty ruler that was used in the stars was also used in a different way to do the border design. It's about 57" long and 45' wide. Here's some pics
Thanks for looking,
Rob
