    I'm in! I've got 9 or 10 or more. I also joined the FWSPC so I'm going to be busy, but this thread might help me to not get so wrapped up in the FWSPC that I don't finish any UFOS. I have a tendency to get bored in the middle of each quilt that I do.

    No signing up required. Just join in the conversation and let us know how the progress on your UFOs goes.

    I like the idea of a partner to keep the motivation going so to speak. Maybe we could do this amoung ourselves?

    I have 2 I will be working on soon,
    1. skull quilt for my son, started a # of years ago to be a tree skirt LOL, now he wants it as a queen size, already bought the extra fabric (on black Fri on sale)
    2. log cabin wreath, wallhanging, top done and binding made, need to load and quilt.

    think I will go make an excel list to keep me on track LOL
    After 2 years with the same signature I have been requested to remove it. Bye

    I pulled out a project that is a UFO and I have all the blocks sewn into pinwheels, a red and white quilt. Not to set them into a pattern and get it sewed up. Want to finish it this week so can give as a gift to boss' wife who is very ill and in a lot of pain. Want it to be a healing quilt. she could use some extra love. Pray I get it done.

    I also have so many UFO's that I just can't count them and I am so ready to start moving them onto the finished pile. Count me in.

    I got way behind on finishing my UFO's, due to a sore shoulder and being sick. This weekend, I was able to finish 3 little guys for a local charity, although DH gave one to a sweet neighbor who is recovering from being hit by a truck.

    Do kits I have put together myself count as UFOs? I have the fab picked out and put in large bags so all I have to do is pull out a bag and get started. If so, I have 6 to finish. If not I only have 4.

    It seems to me that your quilts started when you picked out the fabrics & planned your quilt. But that's up to you if you want to count it.
    Now you got me to thinking & I've got 2 more UFOS 'cause I've bought some of the fabric & planned 'em out in my head.

    According to my daughter, they count as a UFO. I have a few of these myself. Bought the kit to do and set aside because of impending quilts to be done for someone. The kits are quilts for my house.

    I am in! When I started quilting, I did everything by hand and had no fabric stash. So I have quite a few of those to finish along with about 20 others!!! Thanks for the challenge. Barb

    This will be fun. It is interesting to see what we started and wonder why we stopped.

    This is great!! It fits right in with my goals for next year. I really want to complete one UFO before I start a new project, one UFO then one new projects, etc. You get the idea. I am looking forward to seeing eveyones completed projects.
