    That's cute, QM.
    I like the 'heart' quilting.

    I think it still counts...I don't think it MUST be a UFO.....it's a finish and that's what it's all about.

I have 3 more little ones that just need their shells attached. And four bigger ones that are just a fraction of the way finished. But, I do have one completely finished. Mailed off and received. These really are the cutest things. And after the initial first one, very easy. But, they are more time consuming then I thought they would be.
    Haven't been on here in a few days and there are so many new FOs.

    Judith your turtles are adorable.
    Thanks for sharing the extra photos, so we can see some of the details.
    These make pretty and useful gifts.

And as my quilting skills grow....I am inspired to try new things. Funny, finding out I'm going to be a grandma...I'm just giddy, happy, all smiles. And, hopefully that will show in my quilting as well.
    Congrats on the pending grandparenthood!!! You know your joy will show in your quilting because it comes from your heart and the love you have is in every stitch! Just a hint, by the 6th one, you are just a little less giddy. LOL

    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.

    PS: I'm ready to trim the edges and put on the binding, which I have already made!! The Marine Memories Quilt will soon be a FO.

    Judith, I love those turtles, I'm going to search the board now for the tutorial. Hope there is one! They are just too adorable and my sister LOVES turtles.

    I'm sure enjoying all the pics of finished UFOs. The bargello is gorgeous. I love the turtle pincushions. And someone is going to have a new grandbaby- congrats!

    Picked up my Grouchy Ladybug (Eric Carl panel) quilt today. Just have to put the binding on and can get it sent off to my nieces. I think the LAer fell in love with it. I had asked for an all over design and he couldn't resist outlining the leaves & little ladybugs - he didn't charge me XTra so I didn't complain. I dropped off my sis's BD quilt to be quilted so hopefully will have it back soon. He was plotting out some fancy stitching for that one too. I warned her it might take a while. So there is a little dent in the UFO pile. Should I mention that I also started a '4 patch posie' ? There always seems to be something new to try. I also have two QOV panel quilts in the works. Just have to figure out the borders on one of those and it can be turned over to the other group members to finish.
    Every day's a blessing.

    Why yes, I suppose it could be! But actually it is purple because the flannel was hugely discounted as I remember... LOL

    Thank you for the compliments and yes that second one is a split 9 patch. I cut them but didnt turn the 2 corners, I just put all the pieces in a basket and mixed them all up before stitching back together

    They are lovely. Scrappies are my favorites. I like the D4P.
    And isn't that last one a Chinese Coins or a variation of it?
    I have made that pattern a few times. It always looks nice and uses up lots of scraps.

    Being a scrap lover, your quilts are wonderful! I like the middle one the best, and might have to give that a try.

    My friend and I were sewing the other day, and my machine developed some sort of problem. I will have to get it in to be fixed. Anyhow, none of my other machines give me a decent 1/4", so in a way, this is a good thing. Looks like you will be seeing a bunch of finished quilts as my February UFO's. I will be working with the LA till my machine comes back.

    Whinnytoo, those are beautiful quilts. i never took the time to do the braid, but you did an awesome job on it. Maybe after I finish my UFOs, I can dig into my scraps and get them done. Love the D9P. Like the mix up. great job!!!!!!!

    Yea! Got another one done...this one is twin size, made the top in May '11 & really am glad I have that Janome 6600...it's the largest I've quilted. I SITD everything, then used black floss to do the ties...am really pleased with how that made it look. Starting to sandwich another top tomorrow...
