    Haven't checked in for awhile. Everybody's finishes are great! I picked up one quilt (needs to be bound) and dropped off two more at the LA er's so I am making progress. Seems like the piles keeps growing even though I am trying to shrink it. Guess I better stop starting things- LOL
    Every day's a blessing.

    I think it counts, but on the little projects that have been ufos for a (clear throat) few years, like 5-8 years, do they count if we finish them as well. On my list that my DD made, I have several of these. Thought would make them up so I can hit my 10 for this month in case I do not get my quilts I want done completed. Busy with my obligations of swaps and I am using one of these lost projects in a DQ this month and the pin cushion swap. Along with a couple of them in the mug rug swap. Thought would count as completed UFOS because I am using the listed items for these swaps.

    UFO challenge

    HI, my name is Robinlee and I am a fabric'cholic/quilt'holic.

    It all started when I was 7 years old and my mom started us three sister's in 4-H and the clothing project. I've made most of my clothing for Jr and Sr High school and through college. My children were never without homemade clothes till they were teen's. Now it's just my DH and I, and I need to get a few things finished before our kids give it away.....lol. So this UFO challenge will be my saving grace. Thank-you!!!!

    Well, now that i nearly have my new house in order and can get back to quilting/sewing, I am once again up to this challenge. Moved to the Prairies of the Dakota's from the Turtle Mountains of North Dakota in Nov of 2010, unpacked very little, I was depressed about the move and the not having enough room for the sewing room vs what I had at our home at the farm. By the new year of 2011, we together (husband) made the decision to find something bigger for both of our sanity's. Anyway we now moved into a fix'er upper and I have a great sewing/quilting room called the "Hen House". Still working on some organization, but I can start working on my UFO's and PHd's.

    "Charisma" just LAQ a wall hanging for me, so I just need to get the binding and bead work done on it, will show pictures by May 31 for that one, but I started working on a quilt for DS Micheal for christmas that I started 3-4 years ago, he was the only child (out of 5) that showed up to help get things going on the remodel of this new house including my sewing room. He made a special trip back from Minnesota to make sure this special room got done which entailed painting and speckling the basement floor.

    So now the challenge begins, I have about 60 projects started and hoped to have most done by christmas.....

    Ring the bell for VickiM......another quilting FO for her.
    You are on a roll, Vicki. Keep it moving!
    I like the top and bottom borders. Sometimes just square blocks add
    real punch and I think that is the case with your quilt....nice job..

    Hi all.
    Last night I put the last stitch into my latest quilt.
    Looks great. Still having camera problems so no pics.
    On to the next UFO. Need to quilt 3 more tops...thought I had only 2 left to do....... then I can start something new.
    I just NEED to get these tops quilted to ease my mind.
    There will still be a few smaller projects as UFOs but I can work on those anytime and finish them within an afternoon.

    Hope everyone is making good progress.

    LOL at me! I'm even slow joining this! I have about umpteen UFOs--the worst being a Dresden plate quilt that my grandmother started about 40 years ago. She had it about 15 years, my mother had it about 15 and I've had it for probably 10. If I can get that monstrosity finished in 6 months, I'll be thrilled. It will now cover a Buick sized bed! I am thinking about cutting it up and making lap throws from it. I'm not sure how or why it got to be so big! We'll see how this one comes out!

    March UFO, finished in April but still finished!

    Pattern: Star Flower Wreath by Chickadee Charms Design Company

    Started in 1997ish...according to the printed selvage! Why do we do this to ourselves? Start a project, leave it until the fabric is way out of print and try to finish it with no fabric options that work with what you already have? Why quilters I ask? Why?

    Answer: I love my hobby, I enjoy a challenge!

    It would have helped if I had bought the pattern but noooo, I drafted it myself. Will I ever learn?!?

    Answer: Probably not.

    Off to the LAQ 04-12-12!

    It's beautiful Fraew - I think we like the 'process' of learning new and different things, and sometimes that is more important than the product, however the unfinished products can get a little heavy...

    Fraew, it is gorgeous! It took you a long time to finish it but it is definitely worth the wait.
    Beautiful colors and very creative design.
    Ring the bell for you.
    Wonderful job.

    Some finishes for April. These are old and been in bags just waiting to be done. The turtle did not turn out as nice as I would have hoped, but he will work as a pin cushion. I have four tops to quilt, two baby quilts to quilt that are lined up and ready to go and hopefully finish two 30's quilt tops to quilt. That is the agenda, now to be sure time allows.

    Oh, I just love the iris, it was my mother's favorite flower, and now it is mine too. Well, one of mine. LOL, I have so many favorites. And the Bluebirds are so adorable, I love that wallhanging!! Great jobs on the finishes and how I love hearing that bell ringing, even if it's not ringing for me. At least I rang it once this month so I am happy and not going to complain at myself for not getting more done.
    Starting Saturday is a week of quilting/sewing with family at my S-I-L's home in Webster, NY. I am so looking forward to seeing everyone and having time with them and laughs and fun and games. I am bringing along 2 UFO projects as well as the kaleidascope I started in Ohio and the quilt I want to start for my DH for our 40th anniversary this year. I like having options to work on.

    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.

    Customer quilt need to come first, so I am a bit behind on my UFO finish list
    this weekend away for 4 days with some girl friends to quit, hope to get alot done, but nothing will get "finished".
    After 2 years with the same signature I have been requested to remove it. Bye

    Hi everyone - I have been off the QB for what seems like ages, and am just now catching up on posting pictures.
    These are my February UFO's.
    #1 is a mystery quilt I started in 1999!
    #2 is a tool panel
    #3 is my granddaughters birthday gift....while other grandma's are doing pink and cute, I've got 'day of the dead' for the 19 year old. To each her own, I guess.
    #4 is some fabric I picked up at our guild yard sale for $2.00. I did add a little more to it, though.

    I am enjoying seeing all the UFO's being finished!

    Now for March:
    #1 are two of the four 'All About Poppa' quilts that I finished in March. I made a total of seven. One has been done for awhile, and I still have two more to quilt. These were made to keep my husband's memory alive for the grandkids. Each family will receive one.
    #2 is a wall quilt to hide my daughter's ugly walls (she lives in an old house and the walls are not the best).
    #3 was started in 2007 and is based on an antique quilt I saw in a magazine.
    #4 is a small baby quilt. No story on this one!
    #5 is a Halloween quilt made with blocks received in a block swap last year on the QB.
