    Ring the bell.
    Wildyard, this is a wonderful comfort quilt.
    I don't know how you ever got all those different blocks together so well!
    As my Mom would say...you must have the patience of Job!
    Nice quilting too.
    Great finish.

Here is the baby quilt done, revised ufo into pot holder using a left over drunkard path block, and a fall dresdan plat that needed some help because I misplaced a couple blocks so improvised and added fabric and I like how it turned out.

    Ring those bells and blow the whistle....congrats to you QM.
    Nice finishes.
    Your Dresden Plate is absolutely gorgeous!
    Great job.

    missgigglewings, love the quilt. Haven't tried a stack and wack yet, but I may have to now. Love the MSQC tuts. I ordered a number of their templates so that I could do the tops like they did.

    Have a great day.

    I have some finishes, but can't post yet because is for the quilts for quilters swap and don't want her to see it yet. I did finish the 1930s star log cabin, binding left to do, but done this week. Got my thanksgiving table runner done, the one fabric wonder table runner done, another ugy heart table runner that i found done, and the maple leaf quilt done. It turned out so gorgeous. No photos yet, but will in a couple days when I catch my breath. So happy! That is 8 so far and I still have three days to finish some more. No, those lace bags still are not done. The easiest and still.........

    I just found this thread and would like to join you all in getting at least one UFO done a month. I have recently sorted my UFOs into tubs on a bookshelf...there are 16 tubs. (shown on back wall of my sewing area.) One has FQs, 3 have my children's started quilts in them (ones they are sewing), and a couple have more than one project! So plenty to keep me busy! Plus one tub has fabric for the Pony Club quilt...I saw dublb posted some so *know* her from that. I started late so have lots to catch up on with those too.

    I went to Market in KS w/the owner of the LQS where I work part-time. She ordered some new charms to sell in the shop, so I have decided I will buy a quilt block charm each time I finish a quilt this year. This will just be for actual quilts, not table runners or wall hangings or other small projects.

    I haven't made it through all 100 pages of posts yet, but look forward to seeing your projects for May and months following.

    Hi Carrie, at least you know where all the UFO's are located in The Clubhouse! Glad you have given yourself an incentive to get the big ones done.

    I'm following along too. I have a lot of WIPs most haven't been sitting for over a year, but is seems like this year I've been an ADHD quilter. So, I'm following along in this group to help me not start something else before I get some of these others finished. Do you mind if I share my finishes even if they aren't super old UFOs?

    Welcome aboard Carrie, you will be inspired by the wonderful works these ladies do. Makes me wonder why we left them alone.

    I bought thread for quilting one quilt, backing and batting for another today. Need to help my 10yr old dd with her quilt tomorrow. She wants to take it to Fair in July...she got the quilting done earlier this week and we got the binding fabric bought today. It is her 2nd "big" quilt...this one is twin, her 1st was a lap.

    My plan for June is to finish a "jelly roll race" quilt I started more than a year ago. I need to put the borders on (already cut) and get it sandwiched for quilting. This quilt will just be SITD quilting with a decorative stitch. I have everything needed to finish after getting the thread today so no excuses!!

    During June I will also be helping my son (12yrs old) finish his 1st quilt. He is using the QAYG method since it is for a queen sized bed. All the blocks are in rows, so he is ready for the quilting. This "UFO" was started 3 years ago and then we moved and he never got back to it. Now he decided he wants it done in time for Fair. He also has a "jelly roll race" quilt top almost done (one border on, 2nd ready to go on). I don't think he will try to be both finished before July though!

    Busy month ahead!

    I feel like I have fallen off the wagon.... Nothing completed in May, have 2 kings together, piano keys made for one, , bo both need borders and quilting. My longarm reservation this Sunday for my sister's (May finish) will now be spent doing a customers quilt. I also have 2 small lap quilts started and finished in May so they don't count for the UfO of the month.
    After 2 years with the same signature I have been requested to remove it. Bye

    Ah, but brushandthimble, they count as a finish! That is what matters, you started and finished. Congrats on that.

    Here is a shot of the bags with the snaps on. The bottle in the middle was from my stash that I inherited from my grandmother at her passing. She always found ways to use all plastic containers no matter what they were. you just did not throw things away.Name:  lace bottlwe.JPG
