    That tablerunner is cool. Love it. Great job on getting them done. So glad they beat the new deadline that was set for them. (LOL)

    Judith1005, thanks for the well wishes. I am still dealing with them and now the left arm is numb, cramps in left leg, and the surgery foot from last August is acting up, but my will power is still pushing thru. i am so close to reaching my goal for this month that I just can't give up. I can do it, I can do it, I can do it, just wait and see. I still have 12 more days to reach the 10. If all my bindings get done that I have quilted, I will be doing excellent. I have two completed, will post photos when i get camera and computer together. The two keep running in different directions ya know, how do they get legs?

    Hey Sherry, love the avatar.
    Thanks QuilterMomma - that little guy with me is my grandson, that was the first time I got to hold him and he probably weighed about 2 pounds 8 ounces in that pic. He weighed 1 pound 4 ounces when he was born so he looked pretty big to us in that photo. He is over 10 pounds now and is almost 8 months old (5 months from his due date) and doing GREAT! I really should change my picture, but it is one of my favorites.

    Great finishes folks!
    quiltmore--the rectangular block pink and gray is intriguing; great color combo in the brown and blue.
    Mary-your Irish chain's just wonderful-I've been waiting to see it done.
    everose--your pastel table runner is so springlike and right on target for the season.
    Don't worry spider.

    Everose, I would love to see your table runner laid out on a table. It is really cool with the touch of rickrack.

    Hey Ya'll I'm back. I was only home from my retreat 2 days when my DMIL went to the hospital. She's home now & boy am I glad!
    At the retreat I did get my DGSon's Solar System Quilt quilted, but there are about 10 little spots that have eyelashes. I've got to fix those small spots. This week I'm working om my Pony Club blocks & next week I'll do these little repairs & bind it to finish my first UFO for this year! I will finish it...I will finish it...I will finish it!!!
    I have looked back to see what Ya'll have been doing while I was out of pocket. WOW! A bunch of great finishes!
    Awesome! I can't wait to add mine.

    Hello ckcowl, A little off subject. I am a new kid on the block and felt a twinge of sisterhood when I saw your location, the number of posts - impressive - and a 100% feedback score. So I feel safe in asking you (and all the other quilters out there) I understand location and posts, but how does the feedback score work? Bless this day and all quilters!

    When you buy or trade her on the board people you trade or buy from can leave a feedback score for you. It's at your profile section. For example, I was involved with the doll quilt swap and my partner and I left a feedback score for each other. You can view these in my profile section if you want to see the examples of what people say. It gives you a good reputation when you complete your obligations in a timely fashion.

    But, there are a lot of people who do leave feedback scores and there are a lot of people who don't.

    Just checking in while I'm away in Ohio. Having a great time with the grandkids but I did manage to break a bone in my right foot when I kicked the table leg while carrying a load of laundry that blocked my view of where my feet were going. Fortunately, I think I will still be able to sew with the hard shoe on to protect the broken area. Lol, I have so much luck!
    Keep up the good work, great sewing all.

    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.

    Greetings ladies!!! SandyinZ4 - I will take a picture of the tablerunner on a our dining room table as soon as I find it. It is my sewing table now.

    I had a good discount coupon for Hancock Fabrics and got a bag of fusible batting. Well, I haven't worked with it before but a number of people in the quilt group that I belong to has. So what the heck - got the biggest bag I could. Put one of my toddler quilts on it today. WOW does it work nice. Will be able to get 5 projects done with this one bag. Now I have to get a walking foot for my Bernette and I'm in business. These UFO's will get done finally. Not good with free motion and have been practicing, but I'm SID on these. Will give them to the reservation for kids there.

    Now I can't wait to see what other UFO's I've hidden away and collecting big discount coupons.

    Been away for a time and the bells have been ringing all that time.
    Congrats to all of you that made progress on, or finished projects.

    Welcome to the UFO train,Quiltmore. You've been making good progress with 3 FOs in 3 months.
    Joe looks like a great quilting buddy.

    Sorry about your foot Wildyard. Maybe you can learn to sew with the other foot if the boot is too clunky.
    I have been busy with a tutorial on another site and have kept up so far. I also have a 4patch posie ready to quilt and a BOM top ready to quilt. I am trying to decide whether to add a border to a wallhanging that I added continuous prairie pts to.Name:  Tea Time and Prairie Pts 005.JPG

    I would another border, maybe cut about 2.5 inches wide.
    After 2 years with the same signature I have been requested to remove it. Bye

    barbellen, add the other border as said about 2.5", will make those points show up better and add a bit more dimension to the hanging and you will like it so much better. Be ready for posting, I will take some photos of my projects and get them on here tomorrow. i have binding to get done first, ugh. I have to figure out what color of binding to do on the bargello one. Nice job gals, and welcome aboard this fun challenge train. I am enjoying it and love seeing all the gorgeous quilts being done. Great job!!!!

    Well ladies, I guess it was meant to be. Took a one of my machines over to have a "spring" cleaning and got my other one upstairs. Was going to finish this UFO tonight - just needed to machine the binding on. It is now broke down and the repair man is out of town this week. So I guess I have to do paperwork. Darn.

    I can lay out one of the many tops that I have made and sandwich the batting and back but that will be it until the machines are back.

    Happy sewing to the rest of you.

    Woo Hoo! I have just finished my March UFO. It has just been lurking in my closet waiting to be put together. It was actually a challenge....my sister, who quilts also, moved to AZ some time back and to keep her as a quilting buddy long distance.....we set up a challenge between us. I challenged her to this one 2 years ago.....and then life just got in my way. I'm adding a close up....I'm never sure how a full view will look. Oh, and yes, that is my new quilting partner on the quilt.....Roxy, my sidekick. Roxy thinks every quilt I make should be hers!

    Nanachar, Awesome quilt. I love the food theme. Pretty fabrics. Roxie is adorable. I have a snowy baby at home that looks like your Roxie. They would make great quilt hoarders don't you think. If we would let them. lol

    Thanks. I'll add a border and keep you posted. It will be a busy week for me so don't know if it will get done this week.

    No, my sister hasn't finished hers' yet.....I hope she does soon.....it's always fun to see how alike or very different our quilts are. The challenge was: You had to draft your own pattern, so the jars could be any size you want.....the only catch was they had to be filled with fruits and vegies, so I sent my sister 6 fabrics to get her started.
