    I finished the last 3 blocks for the UFO wedding quilt. Now all I have to do is add the sashing and then layer, quilt and bind. LOL, all.....
    I also got a lot of the squares cut for the beach quilt. [ATTACH=CONFIG]332044[/ATTACH Name:  last 3 wedding quilt blocks.jpg

    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 am glad for this challenge, it is helping me keep on track also. So far, stats time, Of the 130 and more ufos I have, my goal is the 120 for year, 10 a month, and now have completed 41 for the year so far. I am so happy that I am on track. This can only get better, but will be more intense because some of the projects have little 1.5" blocks that need to be sewn. And then some have diamonds, yes, 1.5". What was I thinking? Oh yeah, show quilts thats what it was. I just may have to dig those out so can have them ready for quilt shows. Hmmmm there's an idea, that i after the 30s ones that are taking me forever it seems. Ugh, I do not like log cabins.

    now I will come up with a list of to dos for May in the next day or two, you already know those 30s are still on there and then I have to do Shekenah's quilt or she may have a complete fit at me. I also have a few fall ones that might be pretty, but have to check out the status of cutting and if hand healed up by then. There are still those five applique quilts to be quilted hanging htere looking at me saying pick me, I would look pretty in a show.

    I love all the finishes on the site. Quiltermomma- you are amazing.
    Every day's a blessing.

    Boy, it must have been loud on here while I was gone!!
    Bells and whistles all the time.
    Congrats on all the great finishes.


    BarbEllen and Wildyard......nice blocks. Congrats on getting all the blocks done. Post another pic when the project is finished.

    QuilterMomma, you've been really busy.I like your sampler quilt and the puff one is perfect for a baby but my favorite is the Laura Heine's florals with the beautiful blue sashings.

    Bev, your solar system quilt is awesome. My nephew would love that one.

    Ann, I like your pinwheel quilt .......the quilting is beautiful.

    Sandy, I like your unique take on the Barn-Raising pattern with the stars included in the pattern.

    missgigglewings, lovely colors in the bear paw quitl. Neat idea to use the offset blue blocks to make it a bigger quilt.

    Fraew...I adore your Lion and Lamb quilt.
    It would make a great wall hanging for the month of March.
    I will have to keep that in mind for next year.
    Are those Drunkard's Path blocks?

    I am almost finished quilting the last top. I had 8 or 9 from last summer and fall and started quilting them during the winter. It feels good to be on the last one. Then I can get to piecing again...that's my favorite part. Not fussy about actual quilting.

    Lovely blocks BarbEllen!

    @Ranger: Thank you. Yes those are dreadful (for me anyway) drunkard's path blocks. Thank goodness my mom loves doing them otherwise this would have been a "no go". I plan to hang it next March.

    I really like your month blocks. Are they made with heat 'n bond or something similar?

    Ok, list for May is:
    Log Cabin 30s quilt
    Basket 30s quilt
    DD RR Quilt
    green/white mock durnkards path
    leaf maple block swap quilt
    churn dash scrap quilt
    applique quilt finished quilted
    lace bags
    purse
    Maybe Christmas block swap but not sure if ready to mentally work on that one. There is a pine burr quilt I started and is sitting there in a tub all by itself asking to be done. Only been on that one for 1.5 years, got bored with the small intricate pieces, but should be done, takes up a whole tub. Or the robbing peter pay paul r/b/w I started, or the baby quilt that is still there or......... ok, whatever I am in the mood for by the end of the month right?

    I actually have three empty drawers in my desk now so can move the important stuff into it and be used like it should be. My scrap piles are getting bigger, but those are for next year when I just want to enjoy the results of all my work this year. By then I will be so broke from buying the fabric to finish up these UFOs (backs) that I will only be able to play with scraps.

    Murphy1 this is going to be a beautiful quilt. Love it already.

All the fabric is cut and numbered - all I need to do is sew, tack and cut over and over again. I started working on it today, the first spoke took me 2 hours, the second only an hour. I shall get it done. Posted is the first 1/4 of the spokes that I completed before I stopped for over a year. I will post again when it is a full circle sewed together.

    Quilter Momma, scraps are good! And you are so creative that I'm sure you'll still have fun. Plus, all your finishes are fabulous. I am enjoying seeing them. I do hope that your not overdoing it. You need to heal from your surgery.

    These are recent UFO's...Moosequilts Fat Quarter Stars Q.A. started 8/11 & blocks finished 3/12--went ahead & got them quilted & bound so they didn't become old UFO's. I put them both together differently. The tonal (birds) one is 56"x64". I only used 9 of the 12 blocks for the batik quilt & because of the way I put it together it turned out to measure 60"x60". The other 3 blocks I used to make the tablerunner. I'm slowly but surely plugging away at UFO's on my list of about 30 I hoped to get done this year. I have more in a couple bins, but they will probably be on next year's list!

    Wow VickiM, I loveeeeeee your stars, all 3 items are wonderful!! Well done. QuilterMomma, I'm eager to see what a mock Drunkard's Path is, as well as to see your Churn Dash scrappy. Churn Dash is one of my favorite patterns.

    Congrats on the finishes.
    All three are beautiful.
    I like the way you framed the stars in the 2nd one and the wall hanging.
    I think that border blue that you used in the 2nd. one really adds to the quilt.
    My favorite is the wall hanging .....love it.
