    Welcome back to you who fell off the train, but we are happy you are getting back on. One of us will always be holding out a hand to give you a lift back up.
    I have a couple new projects I need to do, then back at the UFO's again. I'm glad I got mine done for Feb. already.
    I went to clean my sewing room after the last project and before the next and oh my, I got bitten by the rearranging the fabric bug. So now I really have a mess in there. I decided to seperate my solids from the prints as the print shelves were getting too crowded. Then I seperated all the stripes and put them together in one area. I am going to move my fleece into the guest room closet as it takes up so much space and there is room for it there in the guest room.
    I had to quilt for today as my neck and upper back are in spasm now. LOL, the perils of playing with the fabric way too much. So anyway, I can't start a new project till I finish what I've started cuz my sewing machine is burried under fabric piles that I'm sorting before putting it back into the cabinet.

    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.

    Ooo, stupid migraine. I did not get much done in last week because of migraines, but will hopefully get some done this week. I did manage to use the embroidery machine and make daughters sucker valentine holders. Yeah.

    Ok, finally got some photos of finished February projects. The chicken quilt is from a board swap last year. The pastel/brown quilt is a mystery quilt pattern with the project that I had started and then just revamped my blocks into this quilt. I am not good with pastels so yes, you do notice a spalsh of color in there. Will show you the church quilt we are doing that is supposed to be pastels as well. All of us made three blocks with a specified color palet of "pastels". It is being assembled this pm. Will post photo so you all can see it. We will see how they do with that color choice.

    Yippee!! Ring the bell and blow the train whistle twice!

    Congrats on the finishes.
    Both are nice but that funky chicken one is my kind of quilt.
    Thanks for sharing your finishes and I'm glad the migraine has eased off.

    Quilter Momma I love your quilts, especially the chicken one!

    I forgot and posted a finished UFO on another thread, but this is one I finished in Jan and for some reason the picture never showed up. This one is called Bird Haven by A Graceful Stitch. I also finished A Graceful Baltimore by A Graceful Stitch in Jan, will post a photo of it after I get another picture of it.

    I love seeing all the projects everyone is finishing. I got sidetracked by making quilted postcards, think I am back on track.

    Wow, that is lovely. You did nice piece and applique work. how pretty. Love the little zinger you added. That takes time to do those. Keeping it from getting off skew is hard. Again, very lovely.

    I finished these before the migraines hit. That is why they got done. I finally remembered to take the photos of them to put on to show everyone. This is why I love this group, we can share each others accomplishments. it just makes it so worth while. I know the self gratification of finishing something is there, but when you get to share it, that is so worth the effort. Now, you want to see what I really need to get done that has been sitting there for four years?

    I'm so glad that you got 'em done! Before or after. I too love seeing everyone's work. I look forward to seeing what everyone finished. It helps me stay on track. I've put aside my Solar System quilt until I take the FMQ part of my Machine Quilting class. I'm making a 6 Hour quilt for my apprentice. (I don't know what else ta call her.) She moved to be close to her fiance. They are expecting a baby so I'm gonna make her a baby quilt. Those 6 hour quilts take me much longer than 6 hours, more like 2 or 3 weeks. I can't wait ta post it.

    PS that black & red is going to be great!

    My grandma used to have a hen house. We would have to watch that rooster because he was protective. My aunt used to butcher the chickens. Was funny watching them jump all around when their heads were cut off. That is where the phrase came from. LOL

    Have great memories of all the above. My Mom dressed old hens for the towns people to buy so I have seen lots of chicken running around with their heads cut off.

    I'm so very sorry for your loss. I know that words can't express how you feel. I'm so glad that you are going to be quilting. It was very therapeutic for me. I don't know what I'd do if I didn't have quilting. We're looking forward to seeing your quilts!

    Polly, it's very pretty. Looks like a lot of work.
    I like the border fabric....a perfect fit to set off the center.
    Congrats on the finish.

    Our guild did this as a two year challenge. We had more than 2000 UFO among those that participated. More than half were completed that year. There were many smiling faces at the monthly show and tell. In addition, for each UFO completed you put your name on a slip of paper and into a drawing. The organizer went to quilt shops and asked for items from the guild... these were the prizes. At the end of the year, all the slips were put in a big jar and there were 3 major prizes... can't remember what they were ( think one was a sewing machine, another a large gift certificate from a quilt shop and the third draws a blank.

    Anyway, it was well received. The gal who did it was well organized and each participant had a notebook with a page for each UFO. One lady had over 500 UFO's. She taught classes and had many samples in various stages.

    We even had a section of our quilt show for showing the UFO's.

    Sure I thought I was done with the farm block swap with one quilt, what was I thinking, I found blocks for a whole other one and it is set out on design wall, needs sewn. Put a solid color ziner on it and then pieced border with all the left over fabric for farm and I may get rid of all those scraps. Then quilt. have to go to store and buy a roll of 6oz polyester. i like that weight for quilting fills in gaps better and gives a bit more loft and warmth.
