    I am seeing the ortho doc tomorrow to see if I can get permission to drive back to NY. I sure miss my quilting! For now it's keep the foot elevated and look at lovely finished UFO's here.
    Great Jar quilt, your fabrics are fantastic! Keep up the good work ladies. And welcome to all our new members. Clanging the bell and tooting the train whistleee.. tooooooooooooooooot tooooooooooooooot!!!

    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.

    That is one of the nicest jar quilts I have seen!! I love you border, perfect for the quilt. Great job both on finishing a UFO and on the quilt as a whole.
    After 2 years with the same signature I have been requested to remove it. Bye

    This is a beautiful jar quilt.
    I like the border treatment. It is perfect for the center.

    Roxy is a sweet bundle of fur...so cute.

    BarbEllen --borders on the barn quilt really sets the blocks off!
    Nanachar-you've given me an idea--fellow guild member gave me scraps of those fabrics, now to make this quilt in a smaller size to fit the scraps! Thanks for the inspiration.

    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.Attachment 322115It's about 17 " wide. What do you think?
    BarbEllen, your wall hanging is cute.
    I like prairie points but making them is too much trouble for me.

    I would add another border to give it a 'finished' look.

    Here is my first upload of finishes. The Peach was a block of month I have had for 6 or more years. Bought in Big Timber Montana. The cat quilt is just one put together to practice quilting with. The spring blocks are from left overs and found a cute garden fabric two years ago, yes cut it up before thinking, and the Sunbonnet Sue is from last years swap.

    Here is number two of attachments for finishes. The Bargello is a class sample when I teach the class, just wanted to see how it turned out and I quilted leaves in the center and did leaf rows in border. The heart table runner is a mess up from a couple of years ago. I wasmaking up a pattern that turned south on me. I have another one that needs quilted as well. I was trying a Rainbow thread with the longarm and did not work. The western star is my two year project. I just love how it turned out. Took me all day on Friday to piece the bugger and then four hours to quilt it. I did a western themed panto from Dave Hudson and love how it looks on the minkie.

    So I have to get photos of the last four for April. For some reason my Thanksgiving one did not show up. I have finished them, just working on the photos for here. I have the Dresdan coming, Sunbonnet Sue Applique, oak leaf wreath, and the wilderness one. That should be 11.

    Look at all your wonderful finishes QuilterMomma! Puts many of us to shame. I especially like the little blue cornerstones in the peach BOM. Adds a bit of sparkle to the quilt.

    I love the border you put on this quilt, I have been collecting these fabrics for years, was this a pattern or your own design? Thank you for sharing.

    Idbnvs2, I drafted the "jar block" pattern myself, but I had seen one a few years ago at a show. I am attaching a blow up of one block, maybe if you enlarge it you can see my seam lines in the white. I just drew it out on graph paper and then cut it apart and added 1/4" seams. There might be a pattern out there, I'm just not sure.Name:  Mason Jar Quilt 016.jpg

    And the border was just all the left over fabric, cut into squares.

    To all, Thank you all for your kind words and I love the way everyone brainstorms......yes, I think a miniature with all the fruits and veggies would be great.

    QuilterMomma, You have done it once again! All your quilts are great......so tell me......do you ever sleep, LOL. I am totally impressed with the amount of work you manage in a months time.

    I do sleep, but I am a little OCD so that is what happens. I do not watch much TV and when I do, I am sewing. I do have a new longarm now so it helps get things done. I need to practice. On some of them, you can tell that is what I am doing. May I brag a little more? I also finished five customer quilts custom quilted as well. I am a little exhausted. Looking forward to April now and finishing another 10 or more if I can. I have them all cut up, just have to piece and quilt. I am so excited to see the end of the year and having all these quilts done!!!!!!

    QM, you have been super busy. Congrats on all the wonderful finishes.

    You make me feel lazy.
    I haven't touched my sewing machine in so long. I finished quilting a top but didn't like it and now I am stuck because I want to rip out the quilting and it's such a long hard job to rip it all out but I don't want to start something else until it's done and I'M GETTING NOTHING DONE.

    You have given me incentive. I need to finish that top and get moving on another.

    I like all your quilts. The bargello is really nice..lovely colors...and the Western Star pattern appeals to me ...like the panto too. Your heart runner is cute too.

    My favorite is the peach one. It may have taken you 6+ years to finish but it is beautiful.

    I count 8 here and 5 customer quilts plus the others that you haven't posted yet so the bell will be ringing and the whistle blowing almost all day for you.

    Ranger, I feel your pain. I too have been in that place where you are now. It is hard when you are not pleased with a quilt that you have put so much time into. Stop beating yourself up! I have dubbed quilts "utilitarian type" and we use them for everything, even picnics in the back yard. Then I move on! And as I work on the next quilt I feel like all is right with the world.....I am creating a quilt again and happy as a clam.

    Here are another four and then one more as soon as I finish the binding and should be today. The wilderness one was only pieced last month, I just now finished the quilting and binding. I did a lot of detail on it and I really like how it turned out. The dresdan only needed that binding done. Did it by longarm so had to rip off and redo. The applique SBS was from an old swap on this board and the pumpkin one was from two years ago when I discovered Buggy Barn fabric and loved the design from a magazine I got in mail. So yes, that is 12 for March and I hope to hit 10 again in April. Summer may slow me down from my goal of 10 a month so will keep it going.

    The roof on the house has lines for tiles and the sides are all quilted to look like logs on each one of them.

    Wow! Nice quilts. Doesn't it feel good to have them done and out of the way? I especially like the wildlife one.

    since I am stuck in Ohio, I found some "interesting" fabric at the thrift store so decided to try my hand at cutting out a kaleidascope.
    For some reason I can't figure out how to cut my triangles so they are straight across the top, hmmmmm. LOL

    Gosh it seems like forever since I've been here. Some truly wonderful finishes, I am really inspired to get back to sewing. I have been in such a fog the last few weeks, I don't know where the time has gone. Hey Linda where in Ohio are you??? We could be twins almost, I broke my toe (again) last week when a piece of furniture jumped out in front of me.
