    Wow, another very productive week while I have taken time off from UFOs to work on a new donation quilt. Of course for me, those take precedence because there is a need.

    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.

    VickiM you've accomplished some great finishes in all your projects! Lots of variety. A cute Dora quilt--don't dare let my GD's see a picture; they may all want one ( I have 5 GD's)!

    This is my latest finish.
    It was a bear to quilt on my small machine.

    Ranger, love the scrappy 9 patch. Let's just keep those UFO's a-going out the door.
    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.

    Oh wow, that is gorgeous. A scrappy quilt is the best kind I think. Love the coordinated ones and the exquisite ones, but a scrappy just says love me.

    Ranger I really like your sis9p one. Makes me think that I could start one and make the 9 patch squares as leaders/enders while I am doing other projects.

    This pattern is from the One block wonder book. I have made several of these. Just love making the blocks. Everyone is different.

    Thanks Almond. I may get that book. I like how it appears. Put it on my list of want to dos instead of UFOs to do. I readjusted my longarm last night and did some more tweeking and I think I got it to work. So much so that I actually finished quilting that farm quilt. No, did not take time to do binding yet, but will get on that tonight at quilt group. I did a baby quilt for a friend instead, her new grandbaby comes today so needed to get it done for her. Loaded a wall hanging that I started last year about this time. Will hang that on the church board for a couple of weeks. Then I will do my wallhanging bargello heart that I finished a year ago. Man, so glad I got my new machine, it makes me want to finish projects. So if I get those done, that will be three finished at least for February, oh yeah, I already got two done so that will be five. making the goal of 10. I think I may pull out a couple of easy ones so I can hit 10. I keep this up, by end of year will finally make goal of 130

    New to the board and just saw this. Is it to late to get in? I sure have a lot of U.F.O's. Thought this would be a good group for me. Sure hope I can join. I thought even if I only got a couple done, it would be more than I have done now. U.F.O's sure seem to pile up.

    Welcome to the UFO post. Looking forward to seeing you finished projects. I can't believe how much this thread helps me. Got 3 done and ready to post another tonight. As soon as my long arm gets fixed, I will have more. I seem to always get the top done, but get hung up on quilting & binding.

    Here ya there almond, it is the binding that gets me. I swapped a little longarm quilting for binding. It is helping, do what ya gotta do. Ok, I have been on this board way to much today. I am such a bother sometimes.

    Ladies, may I join also? I have made a promise to myself that I would try to "clean" up as many UFO's in my closet as possible. I am also working on using up as much of my stash as I can.....sometimes I look at a fabric and ask myself "What the heck was I thinking?"

    So glad I can join. Thanks for the welcome. I am really looking forward to getting some of my things done.
    This afternoon I moved my sewing machine into the dinning room. It's in front of the picture window.I have great light there. And it's warn and toasty in there. As I get older, I find I get colder. Had it in the living room , but when a strong wind blows out of the north it can get cool in there. And I hate to keep turning up the heat.

    This isn't Evie, but you have done a fabulous job with my very first UFO! I bought this fabric and started it in 1994ish but never got it done. You had it for a month maybe and look what you've done! I am so happy that you did something with it, I just don't know what to say.

    I know...fellow quilters, raid your UFO stash. You may have something just right for someone else to finish. Pass 'em on and get 'em done!!

    The Cut up

    Another UFO done. It's called The Cut-up by Pieced tree patterns. I started this last summer to donate to the Hospice annual ball. I just got it quilted and bond this past month. This make #4 UFO's. Lastest count is 4 that I have left to get done, but think that will be awhile as my LA is down. Darn, I really wanted to get more done.

    If anyone is interested in the pattern. The pattern comes on a 3" x 5" card (instructions & all) Super simple and cheap. www.piecedtreepatterns.com

    This quilt also applies to the scrap quilt challenge. This quilt was made from left overs. The back is from wonder fabric (wonder why I ever bought it) and extra blocks.

    I've found that with the open living/dining areas now so popular, the runner looks good on dining table or buffet & the quilt for the sofa. Also, the runners are good for the bedroom dresser & the quilt for the bed. Lots of choices this way.
