    Hmmm I guess I ought to get that bag out & put it in the queue. Boy I don't want to , but ya'll are a great influence on me. Now I gotta go find it. My family told me to throw those clothes out, but I said that I could fix 'em. I guess I'd better get 'em out.

    Selvage quilt done.

    Okay quilting friends! Ring that bell for another UFO now classified as DONE. I even washed and dried it. Took pic before washing though. Nice that some of my quilts have feet in pic thanks to DH holding them up. I do have to say that unless things change, I will never machine quilt a big quilt on my little Viking again. They will go off to the LA person. I said some words I shouldn't have while doing it. But lessons learned and that's what life is all about. My label says Selvage Quilt!

    How do these become UFO's? Lovely quilts, a lot of people are going to be hugged by these quilts.

    Great colors in your quilt, almond. Now tell us about those little blocks on the side.

    Sandy and Almond.....congrats on the finishes.

    Yesterday, I sandwiched another quilt top/batting/backing and I plan to start quilting it tomorrow.
    Finishing this quilt will be my February goal.

    I would start the quilting today but the dust bunnies are laughing so loudly that I can't ignore them anymore.

    I never cared for this block until now! I love this scrappy version.I will be working this one up to use up some of the tons of scraps I have!

    Love the bright colors like a real kalediscope! Another one of those "How can this be a UFO?" quilts. Just finished some school fund raiser small quilts so can hit the UFO pile again.

    Oh Wow!!! Love that kalidescop quilt. Awesome job!!!!

    I have a good report. Here are some photos of projects finished. A couple you can say I see why it waited, but love the end result of the lap quilt because the quilting made the quilt. Thank goodness I have a larger machine now to do the quilting better. Also a photo of an UFO that is on the longarm now. you can see why is going to be a challenge and why left on back burner for so long.

    A few more could not get on first post. Finished these up during this week, except the one that is on longarm now. Will be a chore to quilt, but should make it look awesome when done. Hopefully will get to post soon that is done in February. The binding may be my only issue in getting done, curved edges.

    WOW QuilterMomma, you've been busy. Your projects look great. I like the 'tea' one.

    I like the quilting on the first one ....the yellow and 9-patch. The quilt has an old-fashioned charm. I would love to own it.

    Bright and beautiful! The colors sparkle against the black and white and I like that you put it on point.
    The kaleidoscope pattern is on my 'to-try' list.

    So, I finally got a pic of Forest Bricks quilt.
    I dropped my camera and now the lens isn't working properly. Sometimes the lens will open and sometimes it won't. And sometimes once it's open, I have trouble getting it to close.
    Really need a new camera.

    Finished my Jan UFO

    Holy cow! Turn my back for a day and look at all the wonderful finished quilts posted. No wonder my ears were ringing!! :D So many and so beautiful. I love them all, and have added a couple to my "to try" list (oh no!). I have finished my t-shirt quilt also!! yayyyyyyyyyyy...

    I created my own templates of a fiddle, guitar, banjo, and mandolin and included that in the quilting. I will have to send the pics in 2 batches. Hope you like it.

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.
