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.
    Love your idea! Mind if I steal it?

    It's never too late to hop on this train. We stop for everyone! Welcome and be sure to tell us about your UFOs and how you are doing with them. We love photos and updates!

    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.

    Feb UFO done

    I finished this table runner. I started it about 4 years ago after taking a class from Char Jorgensen on this Cleopatra pattern. Had the top done. Got it quilted last week and got it bond while being layed up from knee surgery.

    I had been working on several projects to have then ready for the hand work to do while I was laid up. But it seems I have spent a lot of time on the quilting board. So when I done with this back to the sewing projects.

    I too am spending way too much time here on the Board. Lovely table runner. It seems to glow from the inside-out!

    First UFO of 2012 an orphan has found a home

    Evie sent me this partially finished kit that was all sunflower fabric, so it is done and ready to get mailed to the Hopes and Dreams project for ALS. She had even done one of the satin stitch appliqué blocks, so only one left for me. It looks black, but only the background on the appliqué blocks is black. The balance is very deep green.





    And there were scraps leftover I can use for another quilt.
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

    Just realized, I'd forgotten to post 2 other UFO's that tops were done last year & finally quilted & bound this week, too! The Dora quilt is SITD & around the center of the stars & I used varigated thread for the hearts. The bear panel quilt is enlarged with scraps & I outline stitched everything.

    Krisb - So bright & cheerful! It's great ta finish something that was just sitting there. It's so great that she sent it to you.

    VickieM - Your bed runners are lovely! I looked at 'em before I read the text ,& wondered why they were so familiar.
    Now I know!

    How cute! They are darling! I love how you enlarged the panel, & I've always appreciated out-lineing & SID on panels. It gives 'em that pieced look, & Dora is cute. My DGD loves Dora.

    Hooray! You got it done. It may have taken you 4 years to finish but it looks great.
    Hope you recover quickly from the knee surgery.

    I too spend too much time on QB. I didn't get on here yesterday and look at all the new finishes!

    It's beautiful.
    Having the surgery has been a positive thing for you....at least in the quilting area...look at all the UFOs you are completing.
    Did you have knee replacement? My DH had hip replacement last summer....helped him a lot.

    It's lovely. I love sunflower fabrics.
    I'm glad it's no longer an orphan but is benefiting a good cause.

    P.S.Like your signature quote....made me smile

    Nice runners and a great way to use scraps.
    My favorite one is the last pic...green one.....nice one to use on Paddy's Day.
    I have printed off many pages of runner/wall hanging pics for inspiration. They are inspirations for quick projects I have planned for this coming summer.
    First, I have to finish quilting the tops I did last year. I still have 5 to do.

    VickiM, you've been busy with getting the runners and quilts finished. The pink one is a-DORA-ble (Couldn't resist that). I like bear panels too. Last year, I did a bear panel as a baby quilt. The panels are an easy and fun way to make baby quilts.
    Here's a link to my panel quilt.

    No, I had a torn Menicus. It is killing me just to sit around most of the time. I do plan to walk out to the shop today just for some exercise. Hoping later on this week I will be back to normal.

    Nice job, not only using scraps, gives you a lot of choice in how to decorate.

    WOW! You ladies are doing fantastic. Love seeing the finished quilts. That One Fabric Wonder quilt really inspires me to get mine done. I love that pattern. Your fabric really made this quilt work. Did you do kaleidescope or just cut and place?
