    Well, this probably doesn't count as far as the rules go ('ready to use'), but it counts as far as I'm concerned. I quilt by hand, not machine so it's going to be a while before they're 'ready to use'.

    All I needed to do to finish these tops was add the borders.

    Oh, I needed to tell you that I have to have someone else to do my guilting after I do the tops. So, it may take a little longer to complete with the binding sewn on. I do intend to try to get a top a month at least finished. I won't download a picture until the binding is completed.

    I've got a feeling you ladies are talking about my pink miniature wall quilt (reverse applique). NO it is NOT a potholder. :shock: too many hours went into that project for a potholder. I plan to shadow frame it.

    OMG! when I read "drawer" in your post I realized I have 1 (or maybe 3) tucked in a drawer that I did years ago & just keep forgetting about! I better pull them out this morning or they'll sit there another few years. :lol:

    I'm still working on a UFO from H___.
    Every time I touch it something seams to go wrong. Sewed three rows together last night and ripped out two this morning. This was a "fun and done" pattern :lol: that has not been fun and is not done. :-( It is going to be one row shorter than planned so I can finish and be onto the next UFO. Will post when finished.

    I'd love to join. In fact I just finished one this week. Can I count it for January? I was working on it for an internet friend of my daughters and he was scheduled to come meet us in person this past weekend. Had to finally make myself get busy and "get er done". Finished the morning he arrived.

    Here is the center section of my DGS's orange stars quilt. It's not all sewn together yet, but the first 4 rows are sewn together across. I see that I need to reverse one section as two of the squares are too much alike on the upper right.
    Next will come a 3" orange border, then a 1 1/2 or 2" black border, then a 4" pieced with all the fabrics border, then finally bound in black, if I have enough. The backing will be orange fleece.

    this is all of the center section

    Welcome aboard. Sounds to me that it should count for Jan. It is finished and it is lovely and colorful. What pattern did you use?

    Sounds like everyone is going great so far! I'm almost done with the applique for my UFO. Yesterday I wanted to start a new project and I heard DH's voice in my head asking me if I should be working on a UFO instead, grr! 3 bits of applique, 1 already done. Then 4 seams, and voila, quilt top 6 years in the making! :D

    Keep up the good work everyone!

    It's a pattern called Slide Show. I don't recall off the top of my head who it's by but it's one of the ones that is a single pattern in the little zip lock bags rather than a big book.
