    QuilterMomma--very pretty...love the quilting.

    I made good progress today...got the border on and quilting done on a simple lap quilt...just have to do the binding. Also my dd got her binding sewing on today and did paperwork for 4-H to take the quilt to Fair. She hopes to get the binding sewn down early next week. Here is a picture of her and her quilt right after she got the quilting done (I know it isn't finished yet, but thought everyone would appreciate her excitement.)
    Carrie, she is so excited. I love to see pics like this one.
    This is the reason to pass on our love of quilting.....to see this enjoyment.

    Nice work.
    This one is kinda different with the layout.....the center area and the stars outside.
    Unusual color combos too........I like it!
    Great finish.

I've got the blocks sewn together and today I cut the sashings. Here is a peek at the proposed layout I'm heading towards.Attachment 339312
    Linda (WY), looks like it will be a beautiful finish.
    This pattern is on my LONG 'want-to-try' list.

    Hope your fibro eases soon.

    Dublb, the squares finish at 2". I used a jelly roll from Kansas Troubles collection.
    Ranger, The layout is different because I started the center and put it aside then used the rest of the jelly roll for the stars. Then my engineer son had to help me figure out how to combine them. I think he did a good job. As they say necessity is the mother of invention.
    Thanks
    Every day's a blessing.

    Jelly Roll "Race" quilt

    I made this quilt using a Moda Urban Couture jelly roll (my picture doesn't show the colors very nicely so here is the link: http://jellyrolls2go.com/urban-coutu...elly-roll.html).

    I wanted to try it out to see how long it took before having the 4-H girls make it at "quilt club". (2hrs and 35 min to join strips end to end and folding in half lengthwise until the right size).

    I never added borders after I showed the girls my "sample" so now it is done. I opted to just do one border instead of two like my dd did (hers fits a twin, mine is just a throw). The backing is a really soft black/brown flannel. Quilting SITD using different decorative stitches every 2 rows...my dd picked them out. I couldn't get a good picture of the stitches....wrong time of day to be taking pics, but I could wait to share.

    Hope everyone else is getting some sewing in this week too! I work tomorrow, but get to sew on my FW pony club blocks on Wednesday and Thursday between running kids here and there. I have lots of papers cut and measured so just need to cut fabrics and sew.

    Getting back on track; longarm reservered for Mon, backing & top squared off and ready, binding made. This is actually May's finished, just late due to time on the longarm.
    June's UfO's are coming along, worked on 10 placemats yesterday, binding to do on 4, and one more color pass on the 6 snowmen.
    If I can remember to take pictures (from Jan to June) I will try posting.

    Great job on all the finishes you guys are doing!! Helps keep me motivated. Love this board
    After 2 years with the same signature I have been requested to remove it. Bye

    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.

    ooo, pretty stack and whack.

    I love the jelly roll quilt. I haven't tried the jelly roll race quilt yet.

    Nice finishes!

    Linda--great Stack and Whack...I especially like the little ones in the borders. Great touch...I will have to keep that in mind when I get to my kaleidoscope UFO--it is made using a free pattern called "spin cycle".

    For those who haven't done a JR race quilt...they are so quick and easy. If you need a quilt at the last minute and a JR on-hand try it!

    Love everything that has been posted. I was bad again in May...nothing finished. I went away for a few days with friends, and we visited 8 quilt shops. One had over 22,000 bolts of fabric! What fun! Then I spent a few more days with the same friends and we sewed nonstop. But I worked on gifts, no UFO's.
    I am also doing some remodeling, and I have one room almost completed. Hopefully, I'll have it finished this weekend. Since it's my craft room, I am really excited!

    Kris, at least you didn't add more. I did. Let's see--right now I have a doll quilt, and three more blocks I promised to an unnamed member of the board. Mailing swap blocks (13 total) tomorrow. And really cleaned my sewing room and sorted scraps, and found some PP patterns (on muslin, so you know how old those are) a half-finished feed sack Dresden plate top inherited from my aunt Fanny, and another entire top in pink 30's fabric, with backing attached, but no batting, that also must be from her. BTW, 30's refers to fabric that is likely from the 30's, not repros.

    Oh, and my brother's going away to college quilt that needs to have the Lemoyne stars taken off the background--ugh, satin stitched--and reapplied to another background, because he wore it out. Do inherited UFOs count? My brother graduated from college in 1966, but I inherited that one from my mom. And then there are my own two quilts, two wall hangings, one table runner. And refinishing the treadle irons, mounting them to the cabinet, hoping that the three incomplete sets have one usable frame combined. And getting the Singer 66 to sew again. And three sets of 12 each of swap blocks that need to be made into something. And the potatoes need to be hilled again. Wait, that has nothing to do with quilting.
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

    Oh my , You are one busy woman. I was overwhelmed just listening err, I mean reading. Just keep telling yourself one project at a time in order of due dates. You must be very organised to be able to accomplish all that you do.

    Krisb, taking one project at a time and seeing it thru is a process we all need to learn, myself included. You have a very busy agenda there and like Judith said, you must be very organised to be able to accomplish all that you do. You will do it, we know you will, yes you can yes you can yes you can one foot in front of the other, just put one foot in front of the other. Oh that is a christmas song form an oldtime show.

    Hugggggs and smilesssssss everyone! Doing my happy dance as I post another finish for you all to help me celebrate. The wedding quilt is complete!! Yayyyy!!! Not in time for the wedding, but at least they are still married, LOL. I am so excited to be sending it off in the mail later this week after I do doctor appts tomorrow. Hope to mail it out Thursday. Here are photos of the front and back. I even made my DGD an apron for her birthday this coming weekend today after finishing the quilt. A dear friend from the board sent me the fabric; isn't it great? My DGD loves to cook with me whenever we get together. She is going to be 9.

    wildyard--I really like the wedding quilt and apron too. I am sure both will be greatly appreciated!

    I was able to "start" another UFO this afternoon...it is using a pattern called "Jelly Girl" by Fig Tree.
