    Ahhhhhh, you all are finishing such marvelous quilts!!! Congratulations and it's wonderful to hear that bell keep ringing. All I can do is sit here and get further behind you guys on my UFOs and my regular quilting.
    This lung thing is unrelenting, and since I'm here in Ohio this long, I'll just stay for Easter. LOL, Y'all keep it up tho, I love seeing all your wonderful finishes.

    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.

    I did it, got a UFO done last night. Sent 4 quilts off to the quilter on Monday. Plan to find a back for the UFO I just finished and get that off to be done as well. I will have to figure out how to post my projects so I could share with my on line friends. Wish me luck with that back. Now all I have to do is finish the rest of my UFO pile. I may not be done, but I am working on it!

    Hey Lucinda, this is not a race. I've started to go into down time with the nice weather here-life does call doesn't it? Thanks for the kind words. Now that those AAQI WIPs are done and sent, I'm starting a new batch! So much for UFO's


    CircleSquare, what pretty quilting in the Pooh quilt--takes a simple panel up a notch to make it special.

    Such wonderful finishes. I sure did enjoy seeing all your finishes for the AAQI. Such tiny blocks. I've enjoyed seeing the beautiful table runners. (sure was such a pretty batik used!) Pooh bear and friends...awesome quilting. (I love Winnie the Pooh, sure am glad to still see them around.)

    There are some great tutorials showing how to post pictures on the board(QB Help Center). Just make sure your pictures are resized to the proper size(best size 480 x 640). I resize mine on Photobucket.com(360 x 640). I'm not really tec savy so I'm sure anyone can do it. Good luck on posting. Look forward to seeing all the wonderful finishes.

    I'm still working on my UFO's. Finished all my swap blocks. Finished some Mug Rugs and doll quilts. I also finished piecing the back for a quilt that I start last year. Now, I'm in the process of quilting. It's going very well. It's just taking me time. I never realized how heavy my quilt would get making it two sided. Whew, I don't think I'll do that again really soon. (I was trying to save money by piecing what I had. Of course, I saved money but, I made it harder for myself to quilt.) It is coming along. And this one is for me. So, I can take my time. But, It is going to be on my bed sometime in the next two weeks. It's a very spring/summertime quilt. I tried something different. I pin baisted it, then I quilted the back to the batting. Then, I layered the top on and repinned and am quilting all three layers together. A little more time consuming but, I don't have to worry about the bottom moving around. I can't wait to share it with you all.

    UFO Retreat!! Next week I'm going to a 3 day retreat that's mostly for finishing your personal UFO's! I'm really looking forward to it! Trying to decide which UFO I should take - the one I stand the best chance of finishing! I really hope I'll be able to stay on task and not get distracted by talking or eating!!!

    take two and then you will know to stay focused. One you just may finish, but two will keep you busy so you can finish both. Tricks with the mind.

    That's very good advice! It would be great to finish two! But I will be happy if I finish one!

    Finished my Cottage Flowers quilt yesterday and GOOD RIDDANCE!!

    The quilting was poor. I did it on my small machine and I had some fullness in some blocks which, with quilting, gave me some tucks and bumps near the seams. My quilting friends say it isn't that bad but it bothered me.
    I wanted to rip out the quilting and start over but decided it was too much work.
    I will use it as a utility quilt.....maybe keep it in the car.

    I have started to quilt the next top and it's going much better.
    After that, I have two smaller tops to quilt and then I can get started on a
    new pattern...probably a sampler....looking forward to that.

    Ranger, Perfection is overrated. Celebrate your color and pattern choice. I'm sure it will keep you warm. And with each finish, you will get better and better. I'm right along with you, I don't love my quilting and it is hard to achieve the results I want on a small domestic machine. But, at some point, I will figure out a method of quilting that works best for me. So, until then I am trying to accept the best I can do for now. And celebrate my choice of color,pattern and enjoyment of quilting.

    So Keep up the good work. And post pictures so we can oo and ah. (or have i missed the posting) I will go back and check.

    Have a wonderful Easter everyone!!

    Judith, thanks for the pep talk.
    I usually keep this kind of stuff in perspective but this one really bothered me.

    The one I am quilting now is moving along smoothly so I am feeling much better about things.

    My camera is broken and I won't be able to get it fixed just yet.

    Happy Quilting!

    A few more done!

    Yeah...I got several more quilts totally finished! Several were scrap leader/enders put together, the others I had the tops done. Took a week, but they are all quilted & finished & ready for new homes! I hope to finish the last one I'm working on tomorrow before going to DD for Easter dinner. Happy Easter everyone!

    Wow, VickiM, Awesome finishes. Are these quilts ear marked for anyone special or do you donate your quilts. From soft colors to bright colors, These are GREAT. I also love the simple patterns. It lets the fabric shine.

    Ladies you are all awesome, beautiful finishes!

    VickiM.....I love how you showcased your prints on the green quilt. I am trying to use up some of my stash and I plan to do some baby quilts for charity. I like the idea that you were able to add a lot of color and yet the matching of seam intersections has been kept to a minimum. Thanks for the idea.....I will take it and run with it!

    Some I will donate, some will be for my craftshow booth. I like simple patterns, too, and just for that same reason. It also gives me a break from the more complicated ones I do occassionally.

    Charlene...go for it, girl! They were just scrap 5" squares, the green is 5" wide, the sides I just cut the 5" squares in half. So simple, & nothing to match! Have fun!!!

    Got the last one done, for now, so will try for some more next month. I didn't get a picture of the back, but it is actually double sided, the back is all 5" squares & about 10" top & bottom of the animal fabric used in the 5" squares. I DO feel good with this month's finishes...have a bunch more to go, but slowly the pile is going down...
