Piedpiper- great finish! Your quilt is stunning and that pop of color at the binding was a great choice.

Teen- you can do it!

I have a March finish of sorts- 6 years ago I made a Jacob’s Ladder quilt and liked it so much that I immediately cut out a gazillion 2.5” squares and began sewing them together in pairs to make another one. Other things took precedence and now, I have no desire to finish it. So, I decided to use all the already stitched together 2.5” squares in my Debbie Brown Colorblock quilt for March. The squares that weren’t yet stitched together have already gone back into my scrap storage system. That’s one more UFO off the pile- Yay!

Rob, that worked out well. Quick way to dispatch a UFO!

I'm stalled with UFO's. Have a large one laying across the LA machine. DH & I haven't had time together to load it on the machine.

Also, waiting on delivery of fabric to finish the twin spreads. A little bummed is affecting my Mojo

Rob: Great solution!

petthefabric: I understand things affecting your mojo. Hopefully, the fabric will come soon and you will get the quilt loaded.

I found another UFO but this one belonged to my DMIL. It was made from 2.5” squares but nothing matches, seams are open, etc. so I am taking the 34 or so rows apart. The row strips will be alternated with dark blue strips and sewn into 10.5” squares. This is a very long term project. 🙂. Great for tv time.

Got some energy today. Did some planting. Then got the top and back loaded on LA. Need DH's help to cut the batting. This is great progress.

This gives the total of 23, 3 more than January! Perhaps cold weather in the northern hemisphere kept us indoors & working on quilts. Congratulations, everyone!

Rats. I thought I saw 2 separate posts where you talked about a finish. *sigh* I'll revise my count. *sad face*

Today, took a road trip on the Blossom Trail to see the fruit trees in bloom. Had a great 5 hours with Sister. Made a stop at the Mennonite quilt center and donated a quilt top/bottom for their auction. They'll do the quilting. So one UFO out the door for March. Sorry, didn't even take a picture.
