    Thank-you all for the complements! They feed my desire to keep on track. Yes the college quilt is a d9p a technique I learned in guild. And the best scissors I have found to snip ragged quilts is a pair of EMT rescue scissors. They're built to cut through seat belts so they handle bulk and the blades are angled just below the pin so there isn't so much stress on your wrist. I too am sooooo amazed at all the beauty I am seeing unfold. I am a firm believer that quilters are so passionate about creating beauty that we just can't confine ourselves to one or two creations at a time ( of course it could be our ADHD sides sneaking out too.) Lol keep up the good work everyone.

But, the site isn't taking my request.It only says URL not from computer . Anyone else have this problem ?

    CQLady...I like your quilts.
    Scrappies are my favorites!


    Polly, your 'Bird Haven' is lovely.
    I do not have the patience to do much applique.

    Natalie...I like that soft blue fabric and your quilting is wonderful.

    I made 2 scrap jackets for Christmas and have black and white fabric left over and wasn't sure what to do with the scraps, however, this is NOT one of my UFOs from the Challenge so (sadly) I've added the Bonnie's Mystery Orca quilt to my UFOs. Yes, I do get distracted by new "bright and shiny" objects like the "orca challege" and will be starting to cut my first piece of the mystery this weekend... good luck. I'll keep an eye on your postings to see how you're doing.

    They would make pretty pillows too. Or a small wall hanging.

    Natalie ~ I think those would make beautiful pillows. Framed would be gorgeous, too! Love 'em.

    Just saw this thread . . . I'm finishing up a simple UFO throw now. I just added borders to some fabric, quilted it and am hand stitching the binding on.

    I have 2 large quilts I'd like to finish up soon, and 2 more unfinished tops. Can we include quilts that we have purchased fabric for but not actually started? Maybe they don't qualify as UFOs yet.

    I'm actually working on 2 UFO's now. One is a fall tablerunner that I started in 2010 (same pattern as my avatar) and the other is actually a quilt that I had finished in the 90's for my sister. That was at the very beginning of my interest in quilting and I tied it. It has been used a lot and has begun to come apart a bit so I've decided to do some hand quilting on it. I will try to post some pictures of them later.

    CQLady - love your raggedly quilt! Looks so nice and cozy. I've never tried one of these. Just might need to try this; I certainly have enough scraps.

    They are lovely.
    I think framing them would be a great idea.

    Yes. It seems that I am adding todo's and someday'a every time I look at this site. Also everytime I get started on a UFO, I find another one in the pile. Yikes!

    Yes it is, but now to curve our motivation to finish what we started before we move on now that is the trick for us to learn this year. LOL

    I would put them on point, find a nice complimentary fabric to frame them with a fabric to border and make a wall hanging with them. Pillows would be nice, but with all that work, would not want to have to wash them or see someone on consider them and get them dirty,

    Dragonfly: I am working on the Orca Bay quilt now. I am really enjoying the process, hope you do too.
    Natalie: Your blocks are beautiful! I agree with many others, a wall hanging would be gorgeous. Putting a border on them would really make them pop.
    Barb: I so agree, it's a rare day that I don't find something on this site I want to make. Since I started coming here I have become a better all around quilter and enjoy the process even more.

    So cute to be in your UFO box for so long time.

    I can finally say, I have finished something. Small somethings, but, still a finish. And, they were on my WIP list. I finished both my doll quilts for swaps I'm involved in. I can't picture them yet as they have not been mailed to they're owners yet. One is for here on the QB and the other is another swap I'm involved in. I will post photos at a later date.

    All the beautiful quilts I'm seeing posted is definitely pushing me to finish my WIP's. I can't wait to start something new, but, I really am trying to stay focused on my WIP's. Thank you Ladies for helping me stay on track.

    Well friends, my UFO challange has been derailed!
    I run a word of mouth alterations and repair business out of my sewing room. Well a few months ago my little town started a facebook sight for community sales, freecycle and trade ect. So somebody was looking for someone to replace a zipper in a coat. One of my co-workers gave up my name and number.... and OhMy!! I have been getting a call or two a day. So I am a busy gal as I only do that on the weekends as I do work full time. Today I did 4 zippers in winter coats, 6 hems, zipper and repairs to a heavy set of coveralls and fixed a set of curtians. Got 4 pair of jeans to work next and 2 more winter coats on the call list. One of those zips was for DH who's been waiting on a heavy zipper for his coat. (no money there, heehee) Plus I have orders for 8 of those cute over the oven door kitchen towels.
    So it seems my business is running away with itself. Half of me hopes this goes well, will help pay for the house renos, and the other halfs saying...darn I sould be finnishing up some oft those quilting projects that I want to sell. As this is sure money for now, I know the quilting will keep.
    So friends, I will keep looking at your progress and when I get something of my own done, I will post.
    Good luck to all,

    MisDixie

    Wow! I haven't checked in for a few days and had a lot to catch up on. It is great seeing everyone's work!

    Vanogay: Congratulations on the finishing of your 14 yr UFO. Your hand quilting is beautiful.

    Ckcowl: love the owl quilt.

    I finished a quilt yesterday. Can't really say it was a UFO. Was a "practice" quilt for my new longarm. Got halted when the machine needed some work. Repairman got it up and running on Thursday and I was finally able to finish it. Now, I can concentrate on my UFO's.

    Someone asked how UFO's come into being. Well, for me, it is attending workshops and starting a class project that does not get finished at the workshop. I get home and already have another project on the table that I want to finish before I return to the workshop one and they just start to pile up.

    Enjoyed looking at all the pictures and reading everyone's comments. Guess I better head back to the sewing machine so that I have something to show by the end of the month.

    Hey Ya'll-
    I had a hard week. DH's Uncle died. We drove from Midland to Houston (10 hours) on Tues. Funeral was on Wen. Drove 5 hours from Houston to Ft Worth on Thurs. Graveside was in Ft Worth on Fri & when it was over we drove 6 hours home. DH always does the driving so I used the road time to do my frog stitching on my DGS's Solar System quilt. He's 4 months old, I've got to get this finished! I almost finished all of the frog stitching (rip-it, rip-it, rip-it.) My goal is still to finish it by the end of Jan.
    I'm in awe at all of the UFO's that Ya'll finished while I was gone! Ya'll are such an inspiration.
